The miles-long coastal views from this former Wendy’s are spectacular—if only the service and food consistently measured up. When they’re in top form, this aerie formerly run by renowned Honolulu chef Sam Choy is hard to beat. Breakfast and lunch offer hearty local dishes such as loco moco (grass-fed burger with fried egg, gravy, and rice) and beef stew. Dinner highlights include seafood laulau (i.e. in steamed ti leaves, $29) and Kona orange duck ($28). Go early for a happy-hour seat by the fire pit.
