Guests are greeted on the front porch at this re-creation of a 1900s plantation home. Tables and booths are spaced for views. The menu puts forth the bounty of the Pacific with such dishes as Parmesan-crusted opah, coconut lobster skewers, and seared peppered scallops. For beef lovers, there's the slow-roasted prime rib. If you're an early riser, you can also enjoy the daily breakfast or Sunday brunch offerings.

Just dined there on May 7th. The Ocean House offers fine dining and has to be one of the most underrated restaurants in Waikiiki .. the food was absolutely delicious and we were shocked not to have heard more about this place in the travel guides we purchased. We started off with the Ahi shashimi appetizer--the freshest Ahi we've ever had! We both had their signature prime rib for our main entree. Let me say this-- I don't usually eat red meat . .
but I ate every morsel of meat on my plate . . it was fabulous. My boyfriend said it was the BEST prime rib he's ever had (and that is saying a lot because he has eaten a lot of red meat over the years). The total for our dinner and drinks was $80 (not including tip)--very reasonable in our minds. Restaurant is oceanside so dining views are amazing. Service was relaxed and personable (never felt rushed). The restaurant manager of the hotel even came over to chat with us and made sure everything was perfect. Highly recommend this one!
