Oahu/Waikiki - Relaxed Dinner Recs?

westvillager02 | Sep 17, 2011 11:22 AM

Hi hounds!

I'm hoping to get advice for an upcoming trip. We have a group of 5 adults (family of two senior parents and three adult kids) that are going to be in Waikiki at the end of the month. We are in town for my dad's army reunion so we only have a few meals on our own. We are staying at the Royal Hawaiian.

Can anyone recommend a good place we can have a nice dinner? We have a several formal dinners already booked so on our two free nights (Thursday and Friday) I want to focus on casual and local. My ideal place would be a menu that emphasizes local cuisine, live music, outdoors/patio seating, comfortable atmosphere, mid-or low-priced. I think a bar or cafe that does a light menu would fit the bill but two of our guests are teetotalers so I wouldn't want to take them someplace that was so focused on booze they would feel out of place.

We're flying into Oahu on Thursday from Maui so the Thursday night pic should be within walking distance of the hotel. Friday can be anywhere on the island. Sorry for being so picky! I appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!!
