Food Finds: Downtown
Picking the best pizza spot isn't always as easy as pie. But for Honolulu natives, J.J. Dolans is a go-to for savory handcrafted slices paired with perfectly poured pints.
After a long day, J.J. Dolans is often abuzz with Downtown business professionals who come to kick back and relax in the casual and cozy atmosphere that is typical of Irish pubs. To go with your favorite brew or hand-poured beverage, the bar offers a selection of appetizers, but their pies are what keep guests coming back for amore.
Here, the pizza menu is filled with conventional pies - like the Margherita and Classic Pepperoni - as well as signature slices like their Scampi Pie, swimming in bay shrimp, mushrooms and scampi sauce. Can't decide? Go off the menu and order a half and half pizza or Build Your Own Bar Pie, which includes traditional pizza toppings as well as local favorites like Portuguese Sausage and Spam. So grab a seat lads and lasses and kick up your clogs for a quaint and cozy Chinatown experience.
