JJ's Broiler Restaurant Review

: Although JJ's isn't particularly inspiring, it has a few points in its favor. First and foremost is its lovely oceanfront setting with the option of eating outside on a deck overlooking Kalapaki Bay. You may also order from the lower-priced lunch menu all day long. Choices include burgers, fish tacos, fish 'n' chips, sandwiches, pasta, fresh fish, steaks, chops, and even a few local favorites, such as kalua pig and kalbi beef ribs. You can also grab one of the tables set aside to catch the salty trade winds and order a tropical drink and pupu --- though these all tend to be fried --- rather than a meal. A full bar ensures everyone will find their drink of choice. For dessert, the coffee ice cream pie with its Oreo cookie crust is enough to satisfy two people.
