Chuck’s Steak House ends five decades of legendary oceanfront dining


HONOLULU – Since Chuck’s Steak House opened inside the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort in 1967, the iconic Hawaii restaurant has been committed to serving the local community and visitors alike. At the end of March 2018, the restaurant will close and transition into Outrigger Resort’s Voyager 47 Club lounge, offering a new guest experience at Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort.

“Serving the residents and guests of Hawaii for more than 50 years on the beach has been an honor and we are so grateful to our Chuck’s co-workers and friends who have shared our passion” said Scott Rolles, owner and son of founder Chuck Rolles. “From the get-go, the concept was to serve top quality in a comfortable, casual and family-like atmosphere. We have always stayed true to being real and authentic and it is gratifying to know that was appreciated by all throughout our tenure. While good food, service and location count for a lot, it’s the collective ‘vibe’ of the staff that really shapes guest experience at a restaurant. Chuck’s has always been a great place to work and that special staff bond has always had a powerful effect. With the transition to the Voyager 47 Club Lounge, we are encouraged to know that Outrigger Waikiki Resort Beach Resort will continue to share that very special place with guests and visitors of Hawaii for many years to come.”

The first Chuck’s Steak House opened in Waikiki at the Edgewater Hotel in 1959. Chuck’s Steak House on the Beach opened in 1967 and was one of the restaurant chain’s most popular and successful locations in Hawaii – known among locals and visitors for its casual island-vibes, the fresh and abundant salad bar, expertly charred prime-grade steaks and seafood. Following 50 years of impeccable service with a shining reputation among the local community, Chuck’s Steak House will close its doors on a high note. Beginning in April, Outrigger will transition the premier space into the new Voyager 47 Club Lounge, which will reopen in July 2018 for resort guests and locals planning private events or afternoon meetings.

“We are proud and thankful for the success that Chuck’s Steak House has brought Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort for the past five decades, serving more than 4 million local visitors and guests from all over the world,” said Revell Newton, general manager of Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort. “Looking ahead, we are eager to open Outrigger’s newest Voyager 47 Club Lounge and continue providing our guests with delicious, locally sourced cuisine and authentic Hawaiian experiences with each visit. We also encourage visitors and locals to keep enjoying Chuck’s legendary steak and seafood menu items at Chuck’s Cellar, located at OHANA Waikiki East by Outrigger®.”
