Named one of the Best Bars For Any Occasion in 2010 by Honolulu magazine, Harbor Pub and Pizza earns its status with house-made pizza dough, a friendly crew, and nightly happy hours that keep patrons coming back for martinis, mai tais, and weekly firework shows. Locals, tourists, and even captains from the Deadliest Catch television show dock at the nautically themed restaurant, which is closed for a mere five hours a day and features wood-planked ceilings and floors. Sixteen varieties of gourmet pizzas fill the space with appetizing smells, including the fresh tomato and basil pie with garden-grown basil and the meat-packed Harbor Combo with ham, salami, pepperoni, and italian sausage. Angus beef burgers are dressed up with toppings such as barbecue sauce, fresh guacamole, and blue cheese, and breakfast dishes such as the 8-ounce new york steak and eggs offer a hearty meal after a long night of trying to lasso an albatross.
Jill Shiroma founded her distinctive libation shop because of her love of wines and spirits and her desire to fulfill the lifestyle needs of the modern generation. SWAM offers customers an eclectic variety of vino and spirits, with an emphasis on friendly and personal service. The shop's walls are lined with cherry shelves that are fully stocked with rare and unique drinkables, including hard-to-find wines and spirits, such as Hello Kitty wines (available in the pinot nero white and the pinot nero red)—a beverage brand far superior to Flintstones chewable champagne.
For more than half a century, Round Table Pizza's chefs have been rolling out fresh, made-from-scratch dough, sprinkling it with a signature three-cheese blend, and baking the delectable disks to a golden brown. The most popular pie is King Arthur's Supreme, a benevolent despot that rules over mouths with pepperoni, italian and portuguese sausages, dry salami, and various veggies. Round Table's chefs don't stop at these specialty pies, though?they also can customize build-your-own pizzas by slathering dough in one of five sauces such as zesty red or creamy garlic, and then layering on your choice of more than 30 toppings.
The specialty pizzas at Boston's North End Pizza Bakery are not your average pies. Measuring 19-inches and weighing in at 3 pounds, the Boston's Special pizza cuts an imposing form that will have you reaching for a fork or drilling rig to dig through its decadent layers of cheese, sauce, and fluffy dough. You're also welcome to order up their own custom pie with classic toppings or veggies, or opt for pizza by the slice.
Meander through Paddle Board's kitchen, and you'll find ingredients such as unbleached flour, vine-ripened tomatoes, and flavorful spices. The chefs fold these ingredients into crispy pizzas, showering thin crusts in cheese, pepperoni, and sausage. In addition to pizzas, they douse juicy wings in hot or mild sauce with ranch on the side, and bake soft breadsticks served with garlic butter and parmesan cheese or topped with cinnamon.
The sunlight bathed, palm-fortified fairways of the beautifully landscaped Kaanapali Golf Course wend around the slatted windows of Paradise Grill, filling each portal with greenery backed by sunsets and rolling ocean. It's a stunning venue in which to enjoy some casual island culture. A high-vaulted diagonal ceiling stretches overhead, lending the eatery a modern feel. The first-floor bar boasts 11 flat-screen TVs and a quieter, second-floor dining room is where guests slice into ocean-fresh fish or pull gooey slices of handmade Round Table pizzas. The chefs whip up breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night meals affectionately called Buenas Noshes.
