The night before, you might be slamming back tiki drinks and making new friends at the ever-popular and rowdy Duke’s down below. For the morning after, head to Hula Grill (owned by the same restaurant group as Duke’s), where the ocean views, banana-and-macnut pancakes and chewy strawberry mochi waffle will smooth out any hangover. Not so adventurous in the morning? There’s standard omelet breakfast fare, too. Breakfast and brunch are the most reasonably priced meals; dinner gets into the $30 range and isn’t worth it.
