There are only a few restaurants where the steak is as good as they claim. One of those places is Ruth's Chris Steak House at the Waikiki Beach Walk. Ruth's Chris prides itself in the choice, cuts and preparation of its meats. The steaks are aged for tenderness and their thick cuts keep them juicy. And the best part about going to the Beach Walk location is having an excuse to cruise around Waikiki.

If you've never been to Rock Island Cafe, it's very amusing if you're into nostalgic Americana. It's as much a museum of 1950s to 70s American pop culture, as it is an all-American retro soda fountain diner. Think being in the actual 'Frosty Palace' diner set in the movie classic 'Grease', and you get the idea. If you're a fan of Hollywood, Elvis, Marilyn Monroe or the original Hawaii Five-0 and Magnum P.I. TV shows, you definitely gotta' check this place out. There's lots of subtle nostalgic keepsakes they have both on display and for sale that will blow your mind if you're into this kinda' stuff. See the following photo galleries for more on that!

While they have lots of cool stuff to look at, Rock Island Cafe completes the experience, offering a full menu including everything you'd expect in an an all-American retro diner. From grilled burgers, hot dogs and pizza, to ice cream sundaes, banana splits and scratch-made milk shakes. To celebrate their grand reopening, for a limited time they're also offering happy hour all day and night with $3 beers on tap and $5 cocktails.
