Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlor
Farrell’s, a step-back-in-time ice cream parlor, known for their over-the-top party atmosphere and staff, the famous 30-scoop ice cream Zoo delivered with sparklers and fanfare, sirens, birthday songs and games, and fond childhood memories, opened a new location at Pearlridge.
At the ice cream parlor’s 20th century peak, Farrell’s operated nearly 130 locations nationwide. But by 1990, nearly all of its establishments were closed — including several locations in Hawaii. New owners have since purchased the trademarks and are bringing back the ice cream, the wait staff dressed in pin-striped vests, old-fashioned ties, hats and the great menu — all the bells and whistles. The revival is located at Pearlridge Center Uptown.
Buzz’s Original Steakhouse
Overlooking historic Pearl Harbor, Buzz’s Steakhouse is known for the most amazing prime rib on the island, fresh fish and an awesome salad bar.
Wednesday is Wine Night, when you can get 50 percent off bottles with a regular priced entrée.
The first Buzz’s Original Steak & Lobster restaurant was built on Waikiki’s Beach Walk on Saratoga Road in circa 1950s. According to Lynn Villafana, general manager of Buzz’s Pearl City, the Lanikai Buzz’s opened in 1962, and the Pearl City location opened in 1967 — all originally owned by Buzz Schnieder (real name: Raymond Schnieder).
“We moved to our current Pearl City location in 1976,” says Villafana. “The structure’s windows are angled for the great views of historic Pearl Harbor.
“We have been very lucky to have a really great local following in our neighborhood,” she adds. “They have been coming for 40 years. Now we get multiple generations.”
Cattle Company Steakhouse
Formerly Stuart Anderson’s, this classic steakhouse has been around for decades, and is a great place to get nostalgic, celebrate anniversaries or birthdays of your own. This restaurant has stood the test of time with its great menu, friendly service and complimentary bread.
Some foodies have been known to say that a restaurant’s review can be made or broken by the bread that is served.
It’s either memorable … or it’s not. It maybe a simple thing, but great bread is a diner’s first impression of what’s to come. And a sign that the chef is paying attention to every detail of your meal. And no doubt, the sweet, warm molasses bread with whipped butter is memorable — even doggie-bag worthy.
With expectations high, a popular menu choice is the feast for two, where a couple can share an appetizer, each person selects an entrée, and then they share a dessert.
Whether you go for the prime rib, one of the fire-grilled steaks, something from the sea, or any one of the choice entrees, be sure to save room for the sky-high mud pie or the big mountain chocolate fudge cake — to die for.
It is advisable to make reservations, as this restaurant still draws a crowd waiting for a table.
One thing hasn’t changed in the 40 years since Anna Millers opened for business in 1973: great homemade pie.
Freshly baked daily at the restaurant, 31 varieties of pies are an island tradition. Their signature is the fresh strawberry pie, which is available seasonally.
Whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner — or just pie — that you’re craving, Anna Millers is open 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.
A Senior’s Club, offers discounts to seniors, there is plenty of free parking and the restaurant is wheelchair accessible.
Located on Kamehameha Highway in the Pearlridge Shopping Center, the convenient location makes it an easy choice — for going on 41 years.
Hello Kitty lovers can’t get enough of Sanrio Café, which opened in Pearlridge Downtown, on the second level next to Sears in April 2010. It is the only Sanrio-licensed eatery in the United States.
The menu features pastries, sandwiches, salads and other tasty creations inspired by
Sanrio characters like Hello Kitty, Pochacco and Keroppi. Cyrus Goo, an award-winning pastry chef many local residents will recognize from Café Laufer, is intent on establishing the Sanrio Café as a healthy-eating landmark for the entire family.
Some of the favorite menu items are the Hello Kitty Cake, chocolate brownies, Japanese cheesecake, red velvet cupcakes and Oreo smoothies, according to Catherine Chow, general manager.
