With its vibrant culture, iconic Diamond Head views, and miles of white-sand beaches, Hawaii has earned its place among the top vacation destinations in the world. To make it easy for you to enjoy the best of Hawaii's local craft beer, ocean-fresh fish, and hula pie on your next vacation, we've compiled a list of restaurants currently open for dine-in. 

Duke's Waikiki 

Head on over to Duke's Waikiki for crispy Coconut Shrimp, fire-grilled ahi steak, and slow-roasted prime rib. Fun fact: This iconic spot is where world-famous surfer Duke Kahanamoku grew up and surfed! And it's located right on Waikiki beach, so it's the perfect spot to catch the sunset. Check out their website for the current hours. 

Hula Grill Waikiki

Located at the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort, and offering a stunning view of Diamond Head, Hula Grill Waikiki embodies the 'Aloha Spirit' of the island. This popular spot serves dishes inspired by local farmers and fishermen. Tip: Make sure you try the Hula Pie—it is truly one-of-a-kind. Visit the Hula Grill website for hours and specials.

Maui Brewing Co

Maui Brewing Co. prides itself on its hand-crafted beer and pizza made entirely from scratch with locally sourced ingredients. Located at Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger, it's the perfect spot to eat after a day of surfing or adventuring. The restaurant is currently open daily. Prefer to relax in your room with a Big Swell IPA and a big plate of nachos? You can also order to go. 

Hawaiian Aroma Caffe

This coffee hotspot is the go-to location for the best coffee in Hawaii. It is also one of the most Instagrammed coffee shops in Hawaii, thanks to the unique latte art and cute decor. You can visit the Hawaiian Aroma Caffe inside the Waikiki Beachcomber. It is currently open daily from 6:00 AM.

Giovanni Pastrami
