Seafood Restaurant
$$
“Best food in Haleiwa, only open for lunch and dinner and has a great view of the harbor. If you are patient enough for outside seating it never disappoints but if you are in a hurry you can usually find a table in the bar without waiting. They have a great happy hour from 4-6 Monday- Thursday if you sit in the bar. I suggest getting beer or wine unless you like sweet cocktails then this is your place to try one of their many specialty cocktails. I find the cocktails on the weak side so go ahead, order another, haha. They do NOT take reservations so be prepared to wait 45 minutes for a table if you go around sunset time.”

Food Truck
$$
“The most famous shrimp truck on the North Shore, originally launched out of a converted bread truck more than 20 years ago. Now that's some staying power. Will it be garlic shrimp today drenched in butter, shrimp scampi, or perhaps we're feeling a little braver and will have the no refunds, hot and spicy shrimp plate!”

Ice Cream Shop

“Growing up as a kid on the North Shore meant my reward for sitting still for a haircut was a Shave Ice. Not a bad deal. The barber shop is now Aoki's Shave Ice, right across the street. My favorite flavors are Li hing mui, Lilikoi and Lychee. Order with Ice Cream on the bottom!”

Sushi Restaurant
$$
“Great rolls, fun atmosphere but not a place to be in a hurry. We love going to Banazi sushi but don't too often because the wait is usually too long. They do not take reservations but they will let you go sign in and they will call you when they have your table so you can go walk around while you wait. ”
