Good local food in Waikiki area?

I'm visiting family in the end of May for about a week. Its my first trip out as an adult with my son, so I've opted to stay in a hotel for half my visit so as not to be too much of a burden on my family. (Oh the crap I had to hear from everyone after I told them I booked a room.) I'll be staying at the Pagoda simply because its within walking distance from my grandparents. Is the restaurant any good? All I can remember about it is running around looking at the fish as a kid...

Anyway, I'm basically just looking for good, cheap, local food near where I'll be staying. My budget isn't huge since I splurged on a hotel room, and its really a family visit, not for sightseeing. All suggestions are welcome, but I'd prefer local food, as I get enough pizza and Mexican here in AZ. Good local food is very hard to come by round these parts. I'll be staying in Kailua with an aunt the rest of my time there, but someone pretty much posted the exact same thread already.

On another note, are there any more recent opinions on Stage? My cousin works the line there, and I thought it would kind of neat to go in for lunch, but I won't bother if its not worth the time and money.
