Napili Kai Benedicts
If you want to start your day off right, you definitely need the Napili Kai Benedicts for breakfast. With its Canadian bacon and hollandaise sauce combo, the Classic is always a great choice. To kick it up a notch, go with the Crab, Vegetarian, or Blackstone options instead.

Only available as the daily special on Thursdays, the Sea House Trio brings together all the fan favorites. When you order this dish, expect to get Cajun spice rubbed scallops, furikake sprinkled fresh catch, and butter-poached South African lobster tail. Gluten-free and ready to delight your tastebuds, this dish is always a surefire winner.

By the time you finish your entrée, you might not think it could get any better, but dessert is actually the highlight of the meal. With its fantastically flavorful lilikoi glaze, their New York Style Cheese Cake is the go-to sweet treat for most patrons. If that’s not quite your style, you can get Warm Coconut Bread Pudding, Ice Cream Pie, Tiramisu, or their Flourless Chocolate Torte. They also have ice cream and sorbet if you prefer.
