Atmosphere superb with old world charm. Portraits on wall heavy tapestry and carpet. Quiet place to go and truly enjoy one of the best steaks you will ever be served. You must see the "grill" area - perfectly unique!

I will start off by saying that when you walk in, the decor is inviting and tricks you into believing you are going to have a good experience. However, the food and service does not deliver. The place was empty at 7:30, pm., only a...More

The ambiance is very retro since the place looks like it hasn't changed in 30 years. Adds a different but cool feel. Steak was excellent. Dessert is the best part. They actually melt the chocolate then pour it on the ice cream!

Any kind of collared short is fine - make sure you are not wearing flip flops or tennis shoes though. Coat is not required.

Not a good choice for a large party. I suggest you find a different venue for the wedding party and then enjoy the quite ambiance of Hy's the next night with a few close friends. Best of both worlds.

Join us for select Holiday brunch buffets, celebrate your family holiday traditions at Honolulu's most iconic restaurants. Hy's Steak House, one of the best-known steakhouses in Hawaii, has been a tradition in Waikiki for 40 years and continues to be a favorite with visitors and locals alike. Tuxedoed waiters expertly prepare Caesar Salad, carve Chateaubriand for two and flambè delicious desserts (like Bananas Foster and Cherries Jubilee ) tableside. The real specialties of this steak house, of course, are the USDA Prime grade cuts of beef - New York Strip, Porterhouse T-Bone, Delmonico and Filet Mignon - which are dry-aged and trimmed on the premises. The kiawe wood sears the steaks with an intense heat, while complementing the flavor of the fine beef perfectly. Enjoy a cognac or glass of Port from Hy's full bar in the intimacy of the library lounge, while enjoying the acoustic musical offerings of Audy Kimura, Vernon Sakata or Chris Hopper. Join us for Easter & Mother's Day Brunch.
