Poke at North Shore

Spending 5 nights at Turtle Bay next month. Looking for exceptional poke. Read reviews for both Kuhuku Superette and Foodland. Would love to hear some thoughts on both of those and others. Thanks

Parking at Heeia St. Pier

We stopped by on our last trip to Oahu. No parking signs all over the place. So decided not to take a chance being towed. Where do you park? Would love to try this place on our visit next month. And, do they serve beer?

Birthday lunch south of Long Beach

We will be disembarking from a cruise in Long Beach. My birthday. Spending the night at Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel. Would like a suggestion for a nice lunch on the way to Laguna Niguel, or even south. This is a BIG birthday so money not an object. Just want something memorable....

Lunch on east side of hwy.

Bill, I intend to take the H3 from the airport to 83. And then all the way up to Turtle Bay. Isn't that doable?

And then driving to the airport through central Oahu by your directions above, but in the reverse of course.

I do understand all of that. I have a very good map. I guess I am having a difficult time putting my thoughts into words. Sorry for all the confusion I have caused...

Lunch on east side of hwy.

I am so totally confused now. I thought I knew where I was going. Leaving the airport, going across to east side. Traveling up to Turtle Bay. Staying a week and then going back down to the airport on west side. Seems so easy. So glad i have GPS.....

Luibueno sounds great for a meal when staying at Turtle Bay. We are traveling all the way up east side to Turtle Bay. And then back down to the airport for a 2 p.m flight on the west side. And, thank you for the info on the road connection. I have a great map from mapeasy.com

We will be traveling from HNL up to Turtle Bay around lunch time. Any suggestion for lunch along the way. Have not found much on a search on the east side. We thought we would drive up on east and back down on west side a week later.

Dinner walking distance Hilton HV

Looking for a dinner suggestion a close walking distance to Hilton HV. Husband cannot walk too far. Any kind of food. We like it all. Price range about $60 pp or less. I know Morimoto is not a favorite on this board but we are going to give it a try one night. Need one other dinner before we head up to North Shore.

House Without A Key

I see that Halekulani is having some refurbishment done. Is HWAK being affected? We are staying at Hilton Hawaiian Village. Can we walk the beach and enter HWAK on beachside. Or do we have to take the longer route and enter on road side.

Weekday lunch, outdoor seating and easy parking

We will ultimately be heading east on 80. But time is not an issue. We can go to 101 in either direction and then find our way back to 80.

Weekday lunch, outdoor seating and easy parking

Is this impossible to find? Any type food. We are not picky, but would like a memorable lunch. Will be in S.F. for a few days and would like a nice lunch after checking out of our hotel and before heading back on the road. Location not an issue. Just need outdoor seating (for the dog) and easy parking......

Restaurant recs needed all along 101!!!

We live in Newport, Oregon. Travel 101 quite a bit going to SF. Here are a few of my recs. We frequently spend the night at Carter House in Eureka. Wonderful hotel, but wouldn't recommend the restaurant. We like the Waterfront Cafe. Nice bar, good food.

Several good places to eat in Newport. Lunch and dinner at both Local Ocean Seafoods and Saffron Salmon. We dine at both at least once a month. I would have to say the menu at Local Ocean is a little more original. Excellent seafood. But you can't beat the clam chowder at Saffron Salmon. Stay away from Mo's. Tourists only and mediocre food.

Any questions, ask.....

Road Trip Chico, CA to Albany, OR; then Central to S Oregon Coast

We live in Newport. Central Oregon coast. Two excellent restaurants for lunch or dinner. Local Ocean Seafood or Saffron Salmon. Avoid the lines at all the Mo's restaurants. Tourist trap.

What fish will be missing from the menu

I really hate to bring up a sad subject. But what seafood/fish will not be on the menu next week because of the oil spill. Have not read too much about this on CH and just wanted to know what is missing from the menus. We are very much looking forward to our return to NOLA and this will not spoil our trip.

Live king crab

I have heard that Vancouver has Chinese restaurants with live king crab in tanks that they will clean and cook for you. Do you know of any walking distance to the Pan Pacific Hotel?
