Monterey Bay Canners - Aiea

After visiting the Dinosaurs, we went to Monterey Bay Canners for dinner since I had an Entertainment Book coupon for Buy One Dinner Entree Get One Free ($18 value).

The complimentary Dinner Rolls (served upon request).

The boys shared a Kids Chicken Strips.

I was surprised that the dish came with only two little strips (in the photo they look larger than they really were), but they did taste good.

DH and I both ordered the Fisherman's Choice, where you can select from a variety of entrees to create your own combo.

DH selected the Prime Rib and Deep Fried Fish (mahi mahi)...

with a side of Steamed Rice.

He only had room for the Prime Rib and he ended up taking the Mahi home, but he said both were good!

I opted for the Sauteed Mahi Mahi and Macadamia Nut Crusted Chicken...

with Garlic Mashed Potatoes.

The Mahi was really good, but the chicken was not good at all. It was really dry and flavorless. There was a fruit-style relish/salsa to go along with the chicken, but even that didn't help. Needless to say, I didn't eat much of it, and even though I took the leftovers home, I didn't even eat the leftovers!

We ended up getting dessert--Banana Fritters.

Topped with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce--they were pretty good!

The boys loved the ice cream!

I think I would've enjoyed the fritters more if I was able to eat them right away, but since I was busy feeding DS2, by the time I got to eat some they were getting soggy...

But they were still good!

Our server was really nice and the overall service was great.

And next time I'll know not to order the Macadamia Nut Crusted Chicken again...
