Serving Island-inspired Cuisine; a Fusion of Asian, American and Hawaiian Cuisine

Wood & Bucket Tapas Bar & Grill menu is inspired by our unique Pacific region cuisine – a fusion of the many cultures in these diverse islands. Our Hawaii way of life is fueled by hard work, good food and fellowship and is heavily influenced by the many cultures which make Hawaii their home.

Wood & Bucket Tapas Bar & Grill takes its name from the wooden buckets carried by the plantation workers who came from many countries around the globe to work in Hawaii’s pineapple and sugar cane fields. They would routinely share their packed lunch, creating a fusion of cuisine that is unique to these islands. They were the originators of the Hawaii “plate lunch”.  Following in that tradition, Wood & Bucket serves an array of small plates where you can sample a little bit of everything, from filet mignon to ahi pokedon.

In honor of this heritage, we serve a daily plate lunch menu, in addition to an island-style breakfast buffet that’ll fuel you for an action-packed day of Hawaii adventures, or for just relaxing by the pool or ocean.

Wood & Bucket is available for parties and catering. The bar is equipped with three large flat-screen televisions for watching sports on our live satellite feed. Or you can keep up to date with Mainland news during one of our two Pau Hana or Happy Hours, held daily from 4 - 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. - 1 a.m.
