Never been to Kincaid’s as it is very expensive.
Sad to see another iconic restaurant leave the islands for what, a ultra luxury condo for foreign investors to leave in. Howard Hughes corporation will probably book a crazy unrealistic pricey restaurant in its replacement like what they have a Anaha-Merrimans, and Waiea-Nobu’s. And as far as “Allie’s” comments if she’s never been and experienced Kincaids why comment that its too expensive. She’s probably so cheap she eats at IHS
Give allie a break – it must be tough to eat out much when you’re a perpetual college student working at a pizza joint.
Boo on Howard Hughes Corp. They take all their big $$$$ back to the mainland. Selling to foreign investors. It’s a shame.
Sad to see Kincaid’s go. Going to miss the awesome view that accompanied many a happy hour spent there, as well as the best prime rib in town.
Sure wish Kincaid’s would relocate. Sad to see them go. Patronized that restaurant for many years. Lots of events and memories there. 🙁 Great place for locals to go for a classy meal that wasn’t too expensive. I remember taking dates there when I was in high school.
Named after Ruben Kincaid? Come on get happy!
Rail and over development killing still more jobs and local businesses. Allie’s comment is just ignorant as it was a delightful, affordable place to eat for locals and visitors alike. Kincaid’s will be missed. Mahalo to the employees and good luck finding new work.
I did not say it was not delightful. I said it was expensive. Which it was. For most of us.
When I first started going there, I was a sophomore in high school earning a whopping $3.25/hr. flipping burgers. I managed to eat there at least 3 times a month.
Times have changed, and both prices as well as wages have increased, but Kincaid’s is still reasonable and a great place to go. They’re not one of those places where there aren’t any prices on the menu.
Not like your local plate lunch place, however, not really that expensive.
Too bad about Kincaid not relocating elsewhere it was not a bad place to eat and prices were reasonable enough…….
Sad to see Kincaids go. Remember when it was called Horatio’s. Great prime rib from the altosham, “Burnt Creme” aka Creme Brulee, Chicken Dijon and the consistant New England clam chowder. Seems like all the old places are leaving us. I still miss the old Orson’s and Stewart Andersons’ Cattle Company all at the Ward Warehouse. FYI.. At least Old Spaghetti Factory is still going to be with us. They will be moving to the Aloha Tower Market place where Chai’s used to be located.
Those were the days when Ward Warehouse really was the place to eat. Before the Ward complex became so “modern”. Everything in the area is changing…”Farmers Market” across the street has long since gone.
Great News though…Ryans’ – the last of the restaurant unlimited outlets – sometimes runs some of the old favorites from Kincaids’. Kincaids was one of those “moderately” priced places.. good for a first date..still classy but not too expensive. In the middle of Rainbows Drive In and Hy’s steak house. Need to go before they close down just for nostalgia sake.
Yup…I agree..miss Stewart Anderson Cattle Company, Orson Chowder House, Monterey Bay Canners, Horiatios,….not exactly fine dining but still good places to eat and the prices were right…..
