According to what The Locals have to say, 2 guys who use to work for The Yardhouse will be running the restaurant for the new owner.

A very sad day.... Sunday afternoon WooHooWahine and I took Tiki Tina and Bamboo Boyd to the Royal Hawaiian for lapus.......The dining room has been gutted and ALL the artifacts have been removed! They are still using the left side of the restaurant to seat diners and the bar is still open. The whole right side of the restaurant will be the new bar in a Yard House/BJ's Pizzeria style with a chef from Chili's fixin tacky bar food. When the new bar is complete they will tear out the old bar and make it the new bathrooms.........

Very sad walking through there..... Kinda like an open casket funeral......

I understand that Marilyn and Junior were able to take all the art/wall hangings/light fixtures/tikis/fountains, so at least they didn't meet the fate of a dumpster!!!

I am sooo glad we had a great party there! And it's all on video! Saved for posterity!

It's alright.
For me, it died in 2006.
Great memories though, of a great bar. A great bar!
I have an original "Got Lapu?" shirt. I will shrine it/hang it in my Tiki bar.
RIP Royal Hawaiian!
