La Mariana Restaurant & Sailing Club
Just past downtown Honolulu, tucked away in the industrial area of Sand Island, is this friendly South Seas-style restaurant. Once you walk through the doors, you may think that it's still 1955. The owner, the late Annette Nahinu, bought up kitsch from many other restaurants, so it's tikis to the max in a way that's so old-fashioned, it's cool. The food—grilled seafood, steaks—is just okay; but go for the sing-along fun and the feeling that Don the Beachcomber might walk in any minute. www.lamarianasailingclub.com. Credit cards accepted.
