Cowboy culture is unique to Hawaii thanks to expansive pastures, ranches, and cattle ranches. The booming tourism industry in Hawaii provides plenty of options for finding the perfect steak, especially when it comes to free-range, grass-fed beef. Our top five picks are below:  

D.K. Steakhouse 

D.K. Steakhouse takes steak very seriously. They offer choices like "From the Butcher" or "For the Steak Connoisseur." Choose from blue cheese butter, béarnaise sauce, sansei demi-glace, or crab Oscar-style as your steak accompaniment. Local beef, lamb, and pork are available and traditional surf and turf items and classic sides such as baked potatoes and creamed spinach. You won't be disappointed if you're a fan of the classic steakhouse.

It's hard to go wrong at Kimo's in Maui, a traditional seafood and steak restaurant in a beautiful oceanside setting, which also offers pupus (Hawaiian appetizers or small plates). Take in the sunset colors as you dine on prime rib or a steak with a nice seared outside, while the tiki torches create a cozy atmosphere.  

At Kimo's, a classic Hawaiian restaurant taking traditional Hawaiian cooking to the next level since 1977, you can enjoy the famous Hula Pie. Kimo's fresh fish is in keeping with the original aloha tradition of Old Lahaina Town, from its signature prime rib to its signature fresh fish.

Haleiwa Joe's 

Although the restaurant is located in a neighborhood area, which can be confusing, the view is excellent, and the open-air concept is appealing. The atmosphere is casual enough at Haleiwa's that you can dress as casually as you like without feeling uncomfortable. During large groups in the evening, the prime rib has been known to run out if it is a crowd favorite. The slow-roasted beef served bone-in with garlic mashed potatoes, au jus, and seasoned vegetables are deliciously served with a cold cocktail. Fresh fish and local produce are available at Haleiwa Joe's. They are featuring unique Pacific Rim dishes prepared by Haleiwa Joe's chefs.
