Fodor's Expert Review Wolfgang's Steak House
Sequestered in the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, this open-air New York-style steak house brings loyalists back for beautifully aged steaks, attentive service, and its unique gruff New Yorker attitude. This Honolulu outpost of the NY-based original serves good steaks that have been dry-aged on-site, with classics like shrimp cocktail, slabs of Canadian bacon, crab cakes, creamed spinach, and the token grilled fish selection. Sound like Peter Luger's on the Pacific? Well, owner Wolfgang Zweiner was once head waiter at that legendary Brooklyn steak house. Stop by during happy hour for a prix-fixe sampler deal, or wander in for lunch then spend the rest of the day lounging on the beach.
