The Oahu Club is a private club in Hawaii Kai, and you need to be a member in order to use its facilities. So when Wendell said that Ethel's Grill opened up at the Oahu Club, I was a little confused. It turns out that even though it's located in a private club, Ethel's Grill is open to the public . . . you just need to sign in. You can read more about it here. Wendell wasted no time in checking the place out. He went on the very day that he learned about it.
I took one bite of this Steak Special with Chimichuri ($15.50) and I promise . . . the words "some kind of wonderful" came to my mind. It's the sauce. It would be good with anything. It's veeeery garlicky so a little goes a long way.
The steak dish was such a hit that I decided to try some of this Kim Chee Ahi Poke ($13.75) even though I don't eat raw fish. Guess what. I liked it!
Wendell said that back in the day, Ethel's Grill in Kalihi used to give this Tataki Sashimi ($7.50) as an appetizer for free.
This salad comes with your order. The dressing is good!
