The Hawaiian Islands shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, who gathered by the shore to dive for the delicious mahi-mahi, coconuts, and grilled pineapple growing beneath the crystal waves of the Pacific. Transport yourself to this legendary culinary region with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Hawaiian-inspired pub fare at The Shack. Choose from the following locations: Hawaii Kai, Mililani, and Waikiki.
The culinary sorcerers at The Shack conjure up a menu of Hawaiian-inspired pub grub to occupy vacant plates and empty stomachs. Oil rusty jaw-hinges and distract mouths from shouting out social security numbers with five varieties of poke, a traditional Hawaiian raw fish salad ($10.95), or with pub snacks such as jalapeño poppers full of cream cheese ($8.25). The Shack Monster cheeseburger bridges the gap between bun halves with a quarter-pound hot link and allows diners to choose from a trio of cheeses including american, swiss, and jack-cheddar ($8). Meanwhile, the 14-ounce grilled rib eye, glazed with garlic, soy, and ginger, then topped with smoked shiitake mushrooms ($23.50) is great for sating carnivorous cravings and warming up throats for draft beers, microbrews, and long conversations about renaming the moon.
Bamboo thatching and tiki torches surround patrons with an authentic Hawaiian atmosphere, lit up by televised sporting events and pictures of Hawaii's history.
