Fresh Garlic Ahi ($10.99)

By: Jaimie Kim

Prepare to be hit by the mouth-watering aroma of a good barbecue when you walk through the doors of Good to Grill.

And after ordering, feel free to tempt your taste buds even further by watching your food cook on an open grill. Grilled over kiawe wood, each protein is infused with a unique smoky flavor.

“It’s just a good experience,” shares director of restaurant operations Patrick Comer. “We’re very personable; what you see is what you get.”

Some of the restaurant’s most popular dishes feature meat of the sea: fresh fish. All fish dishes come in generous 6-ounce portions, and the restaurant never uses frozen fish. Among its most popular options is Garlic Ahi ($12.99). The ahi, cut into thick steak slices, is marinated in the restaurant’s proprietary garlic sauce before it is grilled to your preference.

Prime Rib (10-ounce $14.99, 14-ounce $17.99)

A new special that just made its debut recently is Prime Rib Special ($11.99). This 8-ounce cut of 30-day aged meat is marked on the grill for added smokiness from the kiawe wood, and slow-roasted in Good to Grill’s house seasoning.

All protein dishes are served with two sides, which include white rice, brown rice, garlic mash potatoes, fries, house-made potato salad, baby greens with a balsamic vinaigrette or sauteed veggies.

Expect to indulge in a fine-dining meal without the price tag, and surrounded by a comfortable atmosphere.

“Our motto is fine-dining quality without the fine-dining prices,” says Comer.
