We're pleased to launch our Aloha Friday Music Pau Hana in February  2015. Read all about it in "The Scoops" and catch up on the latest news, specials, events and exclusive offers from Highway Inn.

Friday Pau Hana and Live Music

On Friday February 6th we're starting Friday Music Pau Hana between 5:00 and 7:00pm, starting with Kevin Okimoto at our Kaka'ako location. We'll be serving up Island Style Pupus and have discount beer, wine and cocktails.


With his former group, the Opihi Pickers, Kevin recorded 7 albums and traveled to the mainland, Guam, and Saipan. Since the group disbanded in 2008, Kevin has been performing as a solo artist at various venues around the island.


His music is a fusion of R&B, reggae, and jazz. Kevin is currently working on his solo album.

Restaurant & Catering News:

Gelato @ Kaka'ako

In January we're adding some delicious local flavors of Gelato Ice Cream, including:

  • Kona Coffee
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Tahitian Vanilla
  • Hawaiian Apple Banana
  • Coconut

Gelato is a lower fat and lower carbohydrate ice cream but tastes deliciously rich and creamy. We're sure you will find room for dessert.

Cater from our Waipahu location for your next party, large corporate lunch or special event. Ordering is easy, and you can even pay with PayPal at our Web-site.


Our Kaka'ako location is also great for large group.  Host your party in our group area for up to 36 people. It's the perfect spot for family celebrations, work functions and birthday parties.


Minimum Wage

On January 1, 2015 the State of Hawaii began with its first step of raising the minimum wage from $7.25 per hour to $10.10 per hour.

Our Employees make the restaurant work and deserve good wages and tips. We trust that you our regular customers, fans and frequent diners will understand that over time we will have to pass some of these costs on to our customers, just like gas stations pass along their cost increases to the public.
