Side Street Inn Restaurant Review

: Colin Nishida's Side Street Inn is an ultra-casual sports bar with big-screen TVs mounted around the dining room and bar. It has made its name as a hangout for local and visiting celebrity chefs. The menu offers American fare such as burgers and steaks, as well as large portions of local favorites like ahi poke, pan-fried pork chops, fried rice and garlic chicken. Desserts include peanut butter crunch, lilikoi crème brûlée, and molten lava cake baked to order. A second branch, Side Street Inn on Da Strip, is located in the Kapahulu neighborhood of Honolulu.
