queen's surf cafe & lanai
this place opens at 7am and is open till 7 M-W, 9 T-Sat, 8pm on Sunday. Thursday - Sunday evening starting around 5 till closing they have live music. The food is reasonably priced. This past sunday a friend and i spontaneously decided to eat there (since we were at the beach at sunset) and both had the grilled pork chops. Very nicely prepared, 2 fairly thick chops, very moist and flavorful. Served with a decent portion of salad and either fries or rice. Fries ok, the rice was slightly over cooked, but not badly so. They have a variety of foods (hot dog 2.95, fries, 295, fish and chips 8.95, Furukake ahi plate 10.95 to name a few.) No alcohol.
These owners put a lot of effort into sprucing up the place before they opened, hope they make a go of it after a long string of disasters and horrors before. They don't seem to have a website. Its hard to beat siting on the beach at Waikiki at sunset with live music watching the surfers paddle back in from a day riding the waves.
