|ENTRANCE FROM SHERATON WAIKIKI LOBBY|
Got the family out of the house on a beautiful weekend afternoon in March. I had been to Rum Fire a few days before entertaining some reps from Arizona. Enjoyed a great Sloppy Slider that I wanted to share with the family. Rum Fire is a large indoor/outdoor bar and restaurant set right on the beach in Waikiki. Most of the seating is outdoors with great views of Diamond Head and Waikiki. There is also a large section of outdoor seating that overlooks the huge Sheraton main swimming pool. The Sheraton Infinity pool on the opposite side of the main pool is spectacular at sunset. This is a great place to enjoy cocktails and pupu's in Waikiki. Great staff, good food and fantastic views. During Happy Hour from 2:00 to 6:00 there are drink specials such as draft beer for $4.50 and House Wine for $6.50. Regular price for drafts is $5.50 and wine is $8.50. Our waiter (Kenny) was spot on during our visit. Always there to refill our drinks and make sure we were happy. The Edamame ($4) here is delicious. Served with a sweat chili sauce. The Sloppy Sliders ($3 each) are awesome. These are mini braised short rib sandwiches served with cole slaw. If they would only put a pickle on this sandwich it would be the bomb. Still good the way they are. Our waiter Kenny said he would add pickles if we ordered more. We were too full to order more but will order with pickles next time. The Yukon Fries ($5) can be ordered with Garlic or Sea Salt. We went for the garlic. Great fries. Addicting. Light and crunchy. Can eat these things for hours with a cold beer. As the sun sets at Rum Fire the place fills with tourists and locals who maneuver for the best spots to watch the sunset. Really makes me realize how lucky we are to live in Hawaii. It is paradise and Rum Fire is a great place to enjoy our paradise.
UPDATE: Returned to try the Mini Vienna Sausage Chili Dogs ($3). These small Dogs are $3 each. When you can buy a Costco Dog with a drink for $1.50, this is a rip off. The Mini Chili Dogs were pretty flavorless. The chili was tasteless. Don't waste your money on these.
