Ono is a Hawaiian word meaning “good to eat.” It’s impossible to name all the amazing places to grab some ono grindz (good food or meal out) in the areas surrounding Marine Corps Base Hawaii. So we’ll just name a few that have proven to broke da mout! As you can probably assume, that’s the Hawaiian scale for delicious!

Kaneohe Area Restaurants


Fresh Catch

451118 Kamehameha Hwy

Kaneohe, HI 96744

(808) 235-7653

“I am so glad we pulled into the parking lot of this place for a nice lunch on our way out to the north shore. The Poke was the bomb, they had lots of different marinades and flavors and everything we tried was awesome. They have rice that can go along with your poke But it’s not like a poke bar where they have a bunch of toppings and stuff. There are canning bottled beverages for sale. This was a really big surprise and one of our favorite spots that we ate at Oahu. Apparently Guy Fieri has eaten there and given it his thumbs up but it was still a very local joint with no long wait and a well seated dining room.”

“Amazing service, food, drinks and atmosphere. Fair prices for delicious food. You truly can’t beat the view and wonderful service. Not once did we feel rushed. The little things like extra guava butter and water is always filled. We arrived a little before sunset, had time to walk the gardens and then take our seat. Truly magical place among the mountains. We ordered the calamari fries, grilled fish with pesto and lobster sauce over mashed potatoes and the macadamia nut chicken salad. Drinks were delicious and good price! Wish we could dine here every night!”

I’m a big eater & I felt perfectly full after the meal. The coconut cream dessert, Haupia is out of this world, definitely a crowd favorite. I look forward to visiting the store & eating again.”

Moke’s Bread & Breakfast

27 Hoolai St

Kailua, HI 96734

(808) 261-5565

“Imagine going to a restaurant that has a good selection of food, nice size portions, isn’t overall expensive, and tastes amazing! Oh, and has a secret menu. But you didn’t hear that from me (shhh) just ask for “The Jeff” it won’t disappoint, trust. Also, don’t park in the lot across the street or else you’ll be picking your car up at the nearest impound lot. Just find some street parking near or around the block. You’ll need to walk a little anyways to make room for their delicious food. Enjoy!”

Seafood Takeout

The Hibachi

Kailua, HI 96734

(808) 263-7980

“Hands down the best poke I have ever had in my life. This market serves well marinated and seasoned poke. They have several flavors to choose from but I would recommend ahi poke over rice and a spicy or wasabi mayo flavor. The way it’s marinated and with onions is simply amazing. There’s no other place in Hawaii that could beat this price for the standard of quality.”

“Walked in to Timmy T’s and had the #9 Italian. This has to be the best sandwich shop in Kailua for sure. Great people making a great sandwich. Wasn’t cheap, but two people could have enjoyed this heavy weight winner. I highly recommend this establishment and hope you will check them out soon and support a locally owned small business.”
