Happy Summer 2018 from Pono and The Reef


We just want to send our deepest Aloha out to each and every one of you that support us in all we do here in Downtown Santa Cruz. We are into our summer season of 2018 and lines can be long to get into our doors as well as a bit of a wait for food at peak times. We thank you for your patience and we want you to know how much we appreciate your business.. Pono Hawaiian Grill and The Reef Bar are two ‘separate’ business’ that operate under ‘one roof’. We have been together here since 2010.

Live music plays each and every day of the week from our stage. Beginning at 6:30pm daily, and each Aloha Friday we have Hawaiian music with musicians from back home in Hawaii as well as the greater Bay Area.. There is no cover for music on Aloha fridays but we kindly ask for a $10 donation towards the musician who plays on Fridays. For more information on who plays the remaining days of the week you can head to The Reef Bar’s Facebook page.

There is no reserve seating and its first come first serve.

Mahalo nui loa and we hope to see you soon!
