Seven Brothers restaurant found its start when a Samoan surfer fell in love with a blonde-haired, blue-eyed California girl. It all started in 1976 and became the story of how the seven brothers of Seven Brothers came about. Years later in 2009, the dream of Seven Brothers was born in the small country town of Kahuku, Oahu.

The motto embraced by the owners and staff of Seven Brothers is more than a meal, it’s always about guest happiness first. Today, you can find Seven Brothers locations at Kahuku at the mill, Sharks Cove, Laie, and most recently Haleiwa. This family-owned restaurant features a real-life family made up of seven brothers, and no sisters. The idea to form the restaurant was born from the Dad’s desire to see his sons work together as a family. 

Guests rave that Seven Brothers features a menu full of delicious dishes with generous portions all with top-notch service.

This restaurant specializes in offering delicious options for lunch or dinner and is a must-try locale for everyone who visits the area.
