Mahina & Sun’s at The Surfjack — serving breakfast, lunch and dinner — opened in spring 2016 and enjoyed the few successful years of operating in pre-pandemic 2020. Like many businesses, Mahina & Sun’s closed its doors on March 29 last year to brace for the impact of COVID-19. It is the restaurant for The Surfjack Hotel & Swim Club, and the hotel never closed its doors.

“And as the hotel began to rebound from the heaviest impacted months of April and May, we opened back for the hotel and public in June 2020,” says general manager Lynette Eastman. “Of course, our strategy focused on providing the dining amenity for the hotel guests. We began casually serving what we call our ‘Lanai Menu’ from noon to 9 p.m. with a light fare such as pizzas, salads, sliders, hot dogs, taro burgers, fish sandwiches and our delicious famous town ahi tartare,” East-man adds.

Morning Burrito ($14)

“As Hawaii, our nation, the world, begins to recover from the past year of COVID-19, we are excited to announce that Mahina & Sun’s is ready to bring back our casual breakfast menu daily starting from 8 a.m. to noon on March 1! Then, every day at noon we will switch to our Lanai Menu until 9 p.m.”

One delicious item at the eatery is the Morning Burrito ($14). It includes scrambled eggs, purple sweet potato, chorizo, poblano, cheddar and pureed charred salsa.

Another hearty selection is the Pork Adobo Fried Rice ($17). This mouthwatering dish is served with avocado, pickled mushrooms, sesame kale, kimchi and over-easy eggs.

Every night, local residents and guests can enjoy Mahina Lounge LIVE! at The Surfjack. Entertainment is provided by Hawaii’s Finest, with their Revive the Live company.
