  • The Crouching Lion Mini Hike is not obvious to find. You have to walk on the road (very close to passing cars) and you will find the trail near a sign "do not pass". We stationed at Swanzy Beach Park (at about a 20-minute walk from the entrance). The hike is not too difficult. Important to have good shoes. About thirty minutes and then you have a magnificent view! This does not seem a very touristy place, so perfect to be alone with nature.

  • Having done the popular hikes on Oahu, we decided to try some of the less "touristy" ones. Finding the trailhead for the hike can be a bit of a challenge as there really isn't any official marker or a...  read more »
  • This is a small shop on the North Shore highway at Crouching Lion. It is easy to miss if you are taking in the beautiful shore scenery on the other side of the road. The chocolate is delicious and pac...  read more »
  • I loved everything about this place! The food was so fresh and well presented. We enjoyed it very much and can't wait to return!
  • Very good fish, It had to have been caught that morning.
  • We came here a few years ago and they had an incredible lunch Buffett. Now... the zucchini was delicious. The service was slow. The battered fish and chips are actually frozen/reheated breaded fish with frozen French fries. None off the steaks were cooked correctly, but it didn't matter because the steak had no flavor. Grilled fish had no flavor and the shrimp is the worst on the island. The drinks were never refilled, but that's ok because the sodas didn't even taste right. Just hit one of the many shrimp trucks the food is better, cheaper, faster and actually have a home cooked appearance.
  • Probably the best restaurant on Oahu. Very attentive and courteous staff. The food is top of the line. Not a huge menu but everything on it is delish. Very nice scenery and interesting construction and decor.
  • If I could leave negative stars I would... Their service is the worst I have ever had and their food is standard at best. NOT WORTH THE MONEY OR THE TIME! We waited about 15 minutes for someone to seat us, and about an hour before all of us received our drinks. Another couple next to us grew tired of waiting and left. We would have left but one of my friends knew someone who worked there. I literally went out to my car and brought a drink back. In summary, ~$120 (not including the undeserving tip my friend left) wasted, about 2 hours down the drain, and a swarm of flies waiting to invade your plates. I am guessing they do not get to eat much based on the service alone... The ONLY nice thing about the place was the beach and mountain view.
