Where I Ate & Stayed In Waikiki/honolulu

Recommended Posts

Just got back from Honolulu. I stayed at the Marriott's Waikiki hotel, and one of their restaurants' chef, Chef Miles, made me Gluten-free pancakes in the morning for breakfast from my own Gluten-free pancake mix I brought with me (no extra charge!). That was so great to enjoy pancakes along with the breakfast buffet in the morning! I realize some people may not want to risk cross-contact in the buffet line, but I had no problems sticking with the bacon (the bacon was not sitting on bread), fruit, yogurt and fresh scrambled eggs.

We ate at Cheeseburgerland (Cheeseburger in Paradise) and ordered a mushroom avocado cheeseburger w/o bun (we toasted our own hamburger buns at the hotel (yes, we brought our own toaster to Hawaii!) and brought the buns to the restaurant). They were delicious! No fries, but their macadamia nut coleslaw was Gluten-free (given the ingredients they gave me), and we had no problems afterward.

The best meal was at the Yard House in Waikiki. They have a Gluten-free menu. We started with their Spinach Cheese Dip w/ no bread (we brought our own tortilla chips) - absolutely "to die for." I think ordered a BBQ chicken salad and my daughter ordered their turkey club sandwich w/o bread off their Gluten-free menu (she brought her own bun). Again, a great meal.

Hope this helps anyone traveling to Waikiki!

I am glad you had a great experience. One of our members here has worked to educate chefs in Hawaii and around the world about the gluten free diet.

My wife and I were in Waikiki/Honolulu in February. Two of the places we ate were P F Chang and Ruth's Chris Steak House. P F Chang has a good gluten-free menu and the staff was very accommodating. In fact, we ate there several times. Good food, if you like Chinese cuisine. Ruth's Chris didn't have a gluten-free menu per se, but we were told to just discuss it with the waiter. Everything was great, including a piece of flourless chocolate cake for dessert. I believe both are on Beach Walk St. Ruth's Chris is on the level above the Yard House.
