No Straws Attached
In the U.S. we use 500 million straws a day! That's enough waste to wrap the circumference of the earth 2.5 times or fill Yankee Stadium over 9 times a year! SOV is doing our part to mitigate plastic waste and will not offer plastic straws. Paper straws will be available to kids and come with certain cocktails. Otherwise there will be a .50 cent straw charge, part of which will go to a save the oceans charity.
Thank you kindly for your support, Sam
We are proud to be a 2016 & 2017 Open Table Diners Choice Award recipient

"Everything is super fresh. Go at sunset." It's easy to drive right past Sam's Ocean View, as I initially did, a hidden restaurant in the former Beachwalk Restaurant and Grill that delivers on its scenic name. After my long day exploring Old Kapa'a Town, walking into Sam's open-air dining room overlooking the Pacific felt like an easy embrace. From 4pm to 6pm, it serves a happy-hour menu, opening for dinner right around sunset 5pm. Just as I was about to doze off with a Mai Tai as the silhouettes of bikers coasted along the Kapa'a Bike Path below, Sam's menu perked me up with its Spanish, Italian and Indian influences. Try the poke nachos to start and the pan-seared daily catch with coconut jasmine rice in a curry sauce.
