Pint + Jigger

Gastropubs are popping up all over Honolulu. For those of you who are not familiar with the term, Wikipedia defines it as "a bar or restaurant that serves high-end beer and food". In other words, it's a place with an extensive beer menu and food that pairs well with beer.

Although the main attraction to any gastropub is the beer, that's not why I came here. I came here to sample the food. If you're looking for traditional Hawaii bar food, don't come to Pint + Jigger. You won't find pork chops, edamame, sizzling steak, poke, and fried rice on the menu.

P+J is located on S. King Street next to Jimbo's. It's in the spot formerly occupied by Kochi. The doors with frosted glass fronting the parking lot are not the entrances. Go to the left of the glass doors and look for the doorway leading to the entrance to the building.

Top: Red Devils on Horseback $9 (bacon wrapped strawberries)
Bottom: Beer Braised Brats $12.50

Left: garlic parmesan popcorn $3
Right: P+J fries $4

Top: Applewood Smoked Double-Cut Bacon $12
Bottom: Hickory Wood Smoked Sausage Sliders $10

Left: Handcrafted Pigs in a Blanket $10
Right: Spiral-cut Potato Chips $4

Shuffleboard - free :)

My personal favorites from the menu were the applewood smoked double-cut bacon, the sausage sliders, and the P+J fries. The bacon wrapped strawberries were unusually good - worth trying at least once. I would pass on the popcorn - it was soggy and stale.

P+J is a great place to come with a group of friends for pau hana drinks, pupus, and a friendly game of shuffleboard.
