Name:Aloha
Type:restaurant
Street:198 Whiting Street
City:South Hingham
State:MA
Zip:02043
country:USA
Phone:(781) 749-6957
Status:defunct

Description:
I couldn't find out how long Aloha was around. Tikibars mentioned that it had closed back in 2005. My internet research still showed the name attached to the same address and phone number, but those could be old listings. I checked, and the phone number is no longer in service. Googlemaps didn't have a street view, so I couldn't verify what the building looks like now.

Any of you Massachusetts folks know about this place or it's history?

How did you find a matchbook, from a place in my backyard, that I've never heard of?

Rick,

Your backyard! It was one town over from where I grew up. I think I was in there once or twice in the late 80's, but I really don't have any memories. I remember there were a few tikis in the entrance way, but that's about it.

It had a great location, not far off the highway, on the way to the beach and was open probably twenty years or so.

Cheers!

Rick

This is what it looked like in 2004



There was a sign on the door indicating it had closed. My grandparents used to take me there in the 70's. I don't remember much about the interior, other than it being kind of dark, and some brightly painted flat tikis (or masks) on the walls.

TT
