Hawaii Restaurants – Kincaid’s in Honolulu

During the summer of 2007 I was vacationing in Hawaii with my in-laws and we happened to be shopping at one of the shopping centers in Honolulu. We had a joyous time and found many treasures to bring back with us to the states. Yet our main desire was to find a Restaurant that could satisfy our American taste buds.

We ended up choosing to dine at a restaurant that was recommended by one of the retail shop’s sales clerk. She said that the Kincaid’s restaurant serves up some delicious seafood as well as steaks and salads. We were excited to experience what a Hawaiian restaurant would offer as far as taste and ambiance.

Well time for my report, most restaurants in Hawaii make really dry crumbly crab cakes with more cake than crab. Kincaid’s is definitely on that list! The crab cakes were served with a sweet and sour sauce and a ketchup based sauce. It would have been nice to have been able to try both sauces separately, but I guess for presentation’s sake, they plated the sauces together and they eventually mixed. YUCK! Skip the dry crumbly crab cakes and go straight to the baby back ribs! Delicious! A sweet surprise comes with those ribs too– sweet potato fries. The taste was very unique and addicting.

I also enjoyed the location of Kincaid’s because it has a perfect view of the ocean. Very serene. While the restaurant itself was pleasing to the eye, the service however, was so-so. Overall my Hawaii restaurant experience proved to be above average and I was pretty satisfied with the Kincaid’s restaurant. I do recommend them for any American looking to experience Hawaii dining.
