Founded in 1977, Kimo’s has a loyal following that keeps it from falling into the faceless morass of waterfront restaurants serving surf and turf with great sunset views. Part of the TS Restaurants chain, it’s a formula that works—not only because of its oceanfront patio Lanai Bar and upstairs dining room, but also because of its good value. Burgers and sandwiches are affordable and consistent, and the seasonal fresh catch—whether grilled, coconut-crusted, or lobster-topped—is a solid choice. The waistline-defying hula pie (macadamia nut ice cream in a chocolate-wafer crust with fudge and whipped cream) originated here. Four can share it easily.
