We drove and arrived Sam's by the Sea around 5pm. There wasn't many ppl. Detailed and interesting decorations with some historical stuffs. Nice staff and delicious food. You should walk around every corners of the place you can see the efforts the designer put. Every lights are unique. Order the 2 special drinks you can bring the cute cups back home!

Steak House Jam

Reviewed By DaisyDot24 - Atlanta, GA

This restaurant is fantastic, the decor alone could keep you entertained for hours. The drinks were awesome, and the food was even better. The meat was delicious and perfectly cooked. You get a ton of food between the soup, salad, veggies, tofu, and the main entrees. I had steak with foie gras and it was all perfect and tasted wonderful. We also shared some prawns and they were perfect. Overall it was a wonderful evenings,
As a side note make sure you visit the bathroom and look at the fish tank walls!

Sea Side Drive In

Reviewed By Carl P - Salt Lake City, Utah

The restaurant here is over 47 years old and has quite a history and some nostalgia behind it. The view is very nice and the old jute box works very well.
My wife and I stopped here for lunch after hearing good reviews about this restaurant. Maybe it was our fault, but we had fried rice and some sweet-and-sour beef. The food was alright but I also had a hamburger since I was still hungry. I will say the hamburger was a very good for the taste and value.
After looking around the restaurant, I noticed many other patrons who had ordered sandwiches which looked very good.

Cannot believe this place is still open. i first ate here in 1974 when in the Air Force. Food is still good and hard to believe one of the best tacos you will ever eat is in Okinawa Japan. The shells are still homemade. Must try!

Som Chai

Reviewed By Edmund L - Hong Kong, China

From the feedback here in Tripadvisor we went hunting for Somchai while we were on vacation in Okinawa. My wife (who is Thai) loved their tom yam soup and the Thai dishes here. Richard runs a nice family run restaurant and we enjoyed his cooking. They close pretty earlier around 7.30-8 pm so head there earlier for dinner - don't miss out this Thai diner if you are in the area.

ココガーデンリゾートオキナワ というホテル内のレストランです

Reviewed By RDL77 - Washington, DC

We went for Sunday brunch, when only one prix fixe menu was available. It was only in Japanese, but with our very limited language skills we could determine that dim sum was involved, which was the reason for our visit, so we stayed. We got 4 courses (the menu had 6, but no one spoke English and we were mostly full after 4 anyway, so we didn't bother asking about the missing 2 courses). The first was a plate of seaweed salad and pickled vegetables, the second was the dim sum (one crab and one scallop), the third was fried rice with pork belly, and finally a rice pudding with fruit and a cup of hibiscus tea for dessert. It was all fantastic, but the dim sum was the best. I'm definitely interested in going back for more of that. The price was 1700 yen a person -- a little bit more than most places in the area, but given that the restaurant is in a resort with gorgeous views of the water, it didn't seem overpriced (and if we had gotten all 6 courses, there would have been no question).

Reviewed By Rachiebee7 - Melbourne, Australia

I have been here a few times now and it hasn't disappointed. The food is sourced locally and really fresh.
I definitely recommend the sea grape and tomato salad, which is amazing and really unique.
They have an English menu as well which is helpful. Seating is both table and tatami (on the floor, Japanese style).

Uminoeki Ayahashikan

Reviewed By RyukyuMike - Okinawa, Japan

This is one of my favorite roadside stops. When you are driving to the outer Islands, reachable by car, it is one of the last places you will see, with so many conveniences. There is room for hundreds of vehicles in the parking lot and it is a great place to get out and stretch your legs. Restrooms are always neat and clean, there is a nice view of the ocean and, inside you will find shops that don't have the outrageous prices seen at most tourist attractions. The Steak House Ayahashi serves a delicious, buffet-style steak dinner that is tender and filling. At 1300 Yen, I was surprised when the waitress asked if we wanted second helpings. I highly recommend a visit, here, to any of my friends driving to or from the Islands of Henza, Miyagi, Hamahiga or Ikei.

Huge selection of the freshet fish you can get. They cut fish into sashimi and they also cook a lot of the fish into different dishes. Tourists from other countries come here for the lobster lunch. Great place to buy some fresh sea-food to bring home and cook yourself.
