Honestly, I have no idea how many places in Hawaii serve up onion rings but every time I go home, I crave the ONION RING TOWER at the Yard House (chain restaurant found in nine states) on Lewers St. in Waikiki and I think that it’s the best I’ve ever had. It comes with both regular Ranch and Chipotle Ranch dipping sauces and is piled high on this pole. The batter is very light, crisp and slightly sweet and I could probably eat the whole thing by myself but I have always shared it with someone.
If you order it, make sure you enjoy it with some of their over 100 draft beers! Apparently they have the world’s largest selection of beers on tap! The downside of the place is that it is very noisy and you can’t really book reservations. The weekends are very busy and the wait can be around an hour for a table. Luckily, the restaurant is right where there are new shops to whittle the time away.
To finish, their Kona coffee ice cream sundae was as HUGE (as big as my face) and it was very, very tasty. Hubby got the Lemon Souffle Cake and it was really disappointing so don’t waste your time on that (didn’t even taste like lemons).
