Poked abby’s, which is owned by the same family that owns the restaurant, is a popular spot for locals and visitors alike.
Its been open since 1876 and it has had a reputation for being a relaxed, friendly, and safe place to eat and drink in Hawaii.
But as a local food blog pointed out, the owner is not alone in making some controversial and offensive comments about his customers.
The blog, Poke Abby, pointed out the owners comments on the menu: The fish bowl, chicken fried steak, shrimp and grits and chicken fingers.
The fries are not good, but it looks like a good burger.
The owner, James Cook, said he was a little taken aback when he first saw the comments on his restaurant’s menu.
“I thought, ‘What is that?’ because you know how you want a good restaurant, and then you see these comments on a menu, and it just really struck me as odd,” he told ABC News.
Cook added that he was surprised by some of the comments he saw, but added that it was just part of his business.
“It’s not like I think of it as a racist restaurant.
I think it’s just what you have to do.
Cook said he and his wife, Barbara, would always try to offer people something different and different with each new dish they put on the table.
In a Facebook post on Friday, the restaurant said it was aware of the controversy, and that it had deleted some of Cook’s comments. “
We love being the place where people come in and enjoy themselves and they can just sit back and enjoy the food,” he said.

While he said he doesn’t know if the comments are racist, Cook said he’s open to the discussion.
“It’s a very difficult thing to be on the other side of the fence when you’re in business, so we have to be honest with our customers,” he added.
But while Cook admitted he wasn’t trying to be racist, he did believe the comments hurt people’s feelings.
“We know that people want to be treated with respect and we’re all human beings, and you don’t expect someone to treat you in a way that they would like to be handled,” he wrote.
“But the comments really upset people.”
Cook also defended his restaurant.
I want to thank everyone who has been so supportive, and the support we’ve received from our community.
I also want to express my sincere apologies to the people who have been offended, and I wish them all the best in their next venture.
