Jameson's By the Sea Restaurant
Print Leave a comment
Jameson's is so pleasant because it offers casual, airy dining on the patio. Don't bother to dine here unless you're willing to wait for a patio table (usually less than a 15 minute wait) because inside is not as nice. Eating at Jameson's makes a nice addition to a day spent on the North Shore. Try the Curry Chicken Salad, which is served in a papaya half with mango chutney. Unfortunately the meals have become too pricey lately, at around $17 for a salad at lunchtime, and they are too small to share. I hesitate to include it in my list of places to go, but it is just such a nice location!
As you drive south on Haleiwa Rd from Jameson's you will see Lokoea Pond on your left. It is an ancient Hawaiian pond where they farmed fish as far back as the 1650s! Queen Lilioukalani had her summer palace here. Further along, you will reach Haleiwa town, where woodfront, tin-roof buildings dating to the 1920s take you back to a time when Japanese sugar cane workers started this little town on the North Shore. Now it's a major spot for tourists to stop on their way to the big wintertime surfing waves.
Beaches on the North Shore from west to east are: Haleiwa Alii Beach, a great spot to learn to surf; Turtle Beach, a small beach where turtles laze on the sand and where you can have a nice swim; Waimea Bay, where you can have an incredible, refreshing swim in the clearest water, on a large yellow-sand beach; Three Tables and Shark's Cove, also a nice swim, and a small, shady beach; Pipeline Beach, where you can watch surf culture; Sunset Beach, with large winter waves for surfers; and Turtle Bay Hilton Beach, a magical spot but with more chance of bad weather.
Jameson's is at 62-540 Kamehameha Hwy. If you are driving southbound on Haleiwa Rd, it is on the left before the white Rainbow Bridge. There is plenty of parking beside the restaurant.
