Decided to take the entire family up to the Oahu Country Club one weekend to hit some golf balls on the driving range.  Prior to hitting the range, we enjoyed a great lunch at the Orchid Lanai.  The Orchid Lanai is an outdoor dining area located just off the main clubhouse.  The Lanai features comfortable open air seating with a view of the course and downtown Honolulu.  On a picture perfect   day this was really one of the best places to be on Oahu.  We started our meal with an order of Steamed Clams ($16.50).  This was a huge bowl of plump little Clams served in a butter and white wine sauce.  The Clams and broth were delicious.  One of the first times ever that there were more Clams in the bowl than our family could eat.  Loved the Steamed Clams big time.  I ordered the small portion Turkey Cobb Salad ($9.50) and was not disappointed.  The small portion was plenty big and included pieces of Avocado, Turkey, Bacon, Egg, Tomatoes and Cucumbers over Romaine Lettuce.  Served with Louie Dressing and crumpled Blue Cheese.  Salad was very good and filling.  My Wife enjoyed the Oxtail Soup ($15) which was a Daily Special.  She said it was really good and had better flavor than other places she has tried.  My Daughter went for the Lau Lau Plate ($16.95).  She loves Hawaiian food and especially the Lau Lau which is slowly steamed Pork wrapped in Taro and Tea Leaves.  The Plate included a large bowl of Poi which is pounded Taro Root.  I don't like the stuff but she ate a little bit of it.  She finished off the piece of Mahi Mahi on the plate and also the Lomi Lomi Salmon which is small cubes of Salmon with Onion, Tomato and Green Onion. Service is always good out on the Orchid Lanai and if the weather is good and there is a nice breeze it is a comfortable and relaxing place to enjoy great food, drinks and the view.  We finished our great lunch and jumped in a golf cart and hit the driving range.
