The Haleiwa Beach House is a recent addition to the North Shore food scene. Hale’iwa is the main town on Oahu’s North Shore and was a favorite retreat of Queen Lili’uokalani. The Beach House is a renovation of the old favorite Jameson’s, not far from the famous Rainbow Bridge over Anahulu stream. The modern, gorgeous building has views of Waialua Bay and the Lo Ko Ea fish pond. The second floor has a bar and deck. There are four fire pits!
We love finding restaurants with sunset or water views, and good food is a must! The Beach House opens daily at 11 am. There are bars on both levels with draft beers, wines, and a very nice cocktail menu. The well-rounded menu includes ahi, shrimp, scallops, calamari, lobster, mahi mahi, and mongchong (my favorite!) for seafood. Wagyu beef, kalua pork (pork roasted over kiawe wood), lamb, chicken, duck, steaks, and short ribs are more choices cooked Asian and Hawaiian-style. Signature dishes include lobster Cobb salad and mongchong (deep sea pomfret) with bok choy and coconut lemongrass rice.
At lunch we tried the hamburger. It was served on a taro bun (kalo) with the bread a beautiful purple color. Don’t be afraid, the taste is a little like challah or potato bread. The French fries were very artfully done and the dish was just right for an afternoon at the beach watching the surfers.
Haleiwa Beach House is a beautiful setting for relaxing, eating, and having a beautiful cocktail as you look out at the water. I can’t wait to go back and see sunset from the 2nd floor!
