FUUD: Revisiting Hy’s Steak House

Hy’s Steak House for dinner, I got the same reaction:

“Man, I haven’t eaten there in years!”

Yeah, me, neither.

The steakhouse off Kuhio Avenue in Waikiki isn’t the hopping joint it may have been before. But it’s still one of the best-known steakhouses in Hawaii.

Hy’s, which opened in Waikiki about 25 years ago, was part of a Canadian-owned chain. And, to be honest, the place hasn’t changed much over the years. It’s still dark, woodsy, very masculine. Not the kind of place you’d take you gal pals for a night of Cosmos and girl talk.

But that’s exactly what we did.

Here’s what out evening looked like:

This restaurant really looks like a steakhouse. The interior was designed to resemble an old English mansion — complete with old books and framed art — with the ambiance of a private gentlemen's club.
