When I told friend I was going to eat at Hy’s Steak House for dinner, I got the same reaction:
“Man, I haven’t eaten there in years!”
Yeah, me, neither.
The steakhouse off Kuhio Avenue in Waikiki isn’t the hopping joint it may have been before. But it’s still one of the best-known steakhouses in Hawaii.
Hy’s, which opened in Waikiki about 25 years ago, was part of a Canadian-owned chain. And, to be honest, the place hasn’t changed much over the years. It’s still dark, woodsy, very masculine. Not the kind of place you’d take you gal pals for a night of Cosmos and girl talk.
But that’s exactly what we did.
Here’s what out evening looked like:
Inside Hy's Steak House
Hy’s Steakhouse, 2440 Kuhio Ave. in Waikiki. Hours: 6-10 p.m. Monday through Friday, 5:30-10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Phone: (808) 922-5555.
That all looked delicious. Almost forgot that place existed, and it looks like it did eons ago. Someone should tell them to lighten up on the decorations. Remodeling might reignite their business. But maybe their loyal clients like that ‘eat in a cave’ ambiance.
Happy Fuud pixs Friday!
I never been to Hy’s, maybe because I’m not a steak eater.
Happy Birthday Shelly!
Not sure how it started, by my GF and I always judge a restaurant based off of their crab cakes. That one looks super ONO!
Cat, I guess you know Ninnikuya on Waialae closed last month? We used to LOVE the crab cakes there before they changed them a couple of years ago. They used to serve them with four, garlic-based sauces. Anyway, will miss that restaurant and their steaks on a slate!
“…by my GF and I…” should be “…*but my GF and I…”
Still hoping for an “Edit” button for an X-mas gift to your blog readers, LOL!
mmm, Hy’s. still the standard bearer for me. is Audy still playing in the lounge?
Happy Birthday Shelley Smiles. Always enjoyed Hy’s. Over the top and they never disappointed us
It’s funny, about the only thing I remembered about Hy’s is the garlic bread and the ambiance and you mention both in your article. I could eat the bread all night! The dessert looked awesome. Do they serve any seafood dishes? If so, after seeing that dessert, I might have to revisit Hy’s!
