There’s nothing more special than getting to spend the holidays with your family! We are so thankful for our amazing Top Ohana who works hard every day of the year but especially hard during the holiday season. Top of Waikiki would not be what it is without each and every one of them! And we definitely wouldn’t be able to be one of the only restaurants open on the holidays in Waikiki if not for their generous and loving selves!


2. Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays because of all the amazing food! It tastes even better when you don’t have to do the cooking, doesn’t it? We are so thankful for Executive Chef Lance Kosaka and his incredible culinary team for putting together this delicious Roasted Turkey Dinner! With turkey and ham with house-made cranberry sauce, pineapple casserole, stuffing, fried green beans, mashed potatoes, and gravy- it’s everything we crave for Thanksgiving dinner and more! 


Don’t forget to reserve your table for Thanksgiving dinner at Top of Waikiki! 


3. Beautiful Views Every Day

It gets easy to take things for granted, especially when you see them every single day. The holiday season ‘tis the season to stop and appreciate all the wonderful, beautiful things we have in our lives. We are so thankful to be a restaurant with scenic views! Seriously, how can you not love seeing that every day? 


4. Festive Celebration Drinks
