Our server was very good and we enjoyed our dinners. More stars would have been scored if we had been seated timely. After checking in at our reservation time, others with no reservation and same size party were seated ahead of us. We were told our table was taking longer to leave. I feel like they forgot we were the group with a reservation. Overall a good experience.

Went there for a "daddy/daughter" date night with my 6 year old. She had the Salmon and I had a seafood lo mein dish. Both were excellent. Our server was great and the food came out quickly. We've been here before and will continue to go back!

Always have a wonderful experience dining @ Uncles. We went to celebrate my birthday and had the Fried Chicken special (Wednesday) and it was so ono (delicious). I had the Korean sauce, my Mom had the guava bbq, both were great. My sides were white rice and mac salad (added on Caesar salad as an extra side) and my Mom's sides were fries and mac salad. I tasted her fries and have to say those were the best fries I've ever had. They also have mac salad that tastes just like when I'm out in Hawaii having a plate lunch mac salad, very very good! The whipped Otai for dessert was fantastic too. I've never had a bad experience here, great food, great service, great atmosphere and music playing, I look forward to dining there again.

The apps were great, the entrees were a little bland. Both the salmon and the filet we had needed to be seasoned more.

Our experience at Uncle’s is always a pleasant one! We drive about an hour to get there, and visit at least twice a month! The food, the people, and the atmosphere are worth it!

Such a wonderful place to dine. Travelled an hour just to eat here. My brother, who lives in the area, recommended it and it was more than well worth the drive! Uncle’s will definitely go on my “someplace special” list! My compliments to the chef and staff of Uncle’s!

Food was excellent as usual; however for the second time we have encountered pesky gnats or fruit flies at our booth. No big deal, just unusual to have it happen twice for visits that were several months apart.

Everything was goo. My wife got prime rib since it was a special.---very thin and cooked longer than the medium-rare requested.

We want to really like this place, but we've been twice now, and I always walk away feeling I ordered the wrong thing. I will say the Spicy Poke was awesome, but my wife got the shrimp tacos and I got the kahlua pork. Both were fine, but I wouldn't be in a hurry to come back. Server was great! The room we sat in felt like a "private party" room, and the acoustics and atmosphere were strange.

I honestly want to like this place more, but I just don't. I certainly hope it succeeds because we need more high quality restaurants in the area.

Had a great time, my only complaint was that the filet and scallops were overcooked. Our waitress was absent for quite a bit but the bartender picked up her slack. It wasn’t busy so I’m not sure why she wasn’t attending to the table but over all I would definitely visit it again.

This was our first visit. Decor wise the restaurant is simple, little touches of tropical/Hawaiian themes here and there. The real star here was the food. The menu makes it hard to choose everything sounded so good. Turned out it tasted incredible too. Its a unique place that offers a cuisine thats hard to find and in Harford County no less. We will be going back for sure.

It just didn’t measure up to the hype. Food was OK, decent. Just not as good as I expected and it just felt a little sloppy. Service was friendly.

I love this restaurant . My friends said we are definitely coming back here. The rare tuna dinner was superb. We shared tofu nachos for appetizer and lets put it this way there was none left. Pineapple Mojito is very refreshing also. The waitress and hostess seem to go the extra mile and it is a local business which I definitely support. Outside dining is great even if it is rain. You won't get wet because it is covered.

It is a joy to have a quality Hawaiian restaurant like Uncles in my area. Great menu selection. Service was top quality. Food was excellent and portion size was large. Uncles is an authentic Hawaiian dining experience!! As a side note during COVID-19, my friend and I felt very safe dining here. Tables were spread out, all staff wore masks. The entire restaurant was very clean. If you love or want to try Hawaiian food, do not pass up the opportunity to visit Uncles!!
