A little confusing to find as it is beside an apartment complex, but has an absolutely gorgeous view of Haiku gardens. I loved the open atmosphere and balcony seating as well as the amazing drinks from the bar. Expected more in taste and quality of the food. The before dinner rolls were the best part of the meal. Was also a bit dissapointed with the limited menu. Make reservations before you go to dinner or expect at least a 45 minute wait at the bar.
Whether it's a birthday, anniversary, family gatherings or getting together with the girls especially when you haven't seen them for a long time, that's where I go. You are treated as guests.
The service is excellent! The people there are attentive but not overly so. They never appear to be rushing you to leave. They let us sit, and chat and take advantange of the beautiful setting. Patio, overlooking a beautiful lake, lovely lawn surrounded by a jungle garden of tropical plants, fragrant flowers and trees. No one wants to leave. The food is exactly what you expect and more. Try the seafood, excellent!
We were on North Shore watching heavy surf in March. We needed to tank up and eat. When I went into the gas station, I heard the attenant tell a couple of lost tourst to buy a map, that she didn't give directions. Kind of like a Hawaiian version of Triumph the Insult Dog.
Just for the fun of it I gave her two choices of restaurants to recommend from my knowledge of local spots. She insulted one restaurant and sent us to Haleiwa Joe's.
We had to wade through a pile of hand towels in the rest room, from who know's when, but at least we know someone there was washing their hands.
The drink selections were wide, the food was tasty and as I remember the GrandKids eat up pretty well. We thought the tariff was reasonable and I got one of my favorite pictures of my Grandchildren hugging with the lawn and bay in the background. So all in all an enjoyable experience.
Both my son and beloved daughter-in-law ( 3 offspring) have wait serve experience and thought the waitress was excellent..
We asked the locals at Schraders where to go for the best food for a special vacation (my partners 50th birthday.) They suggested Haleiwa Joes. It was fantastic/incredible. I would give it 10 plus stars. Would go back in a heartbeat. The manager came and spoke with us and the staff was excellent!! Of note, the Haleiwa Joes in Haleiwa is not as good!
My husband and I have lived in Hawaii for 4 months now. One of our only complaints is that of the terrible service we have received in local resturants. I was absolutely blown away by the efficiency and impeccable politeness of the staff at Haleiwa Joe's. Not only were we greeted by the most precious hostess, and given fabulous attention by our server, but everyone down to the bus boy was excruitiatingly polite! The food was awesome, the atmosphere was superb, but it will definately be the caliber of service that will bring us back time and time again!
This restaurant has a beautiful view of a garden as well as a banyan tree up front. Our waitress was wonderful, which is a severe plus for any local restaurant. The food was above average for Hawaii. I wasn't knocked out by my dinner, the pork chop, but I wouldn't mind going back to try other dishes. I would recommend Haleiwa Joe's.
Stunning views from open air dining over perfectly kept gardens – nothing more romantic than an outline of pink clouds from the sun setting behind the mountains! The food was fantastic and the wine list has a something for every taste. I will definitely return on my next visit to the island!
Wow what can you say, awesome open air atmosphere and fantastic food. Some of the best food I have ever had in a restaurant. I cannot even contemplate going and not getting the Coconut Shrimp. I usually get that or the Fillet Mignon. Try to get there before sunset and check out Haiku gardens. The secluded/residential location usually seems to keep the crowds small but there may be a short wait. It in't bad because then you can hang out by the bar. I have been at least 4 times this year and I can't wait to go back.
