Crouching Lion Inn & Restaurant for Sale

The Crouching Lion has long been a welcome respite for weary Oahu residents tasked with chauffeuring their in-laws around the island on whirlwind tours of the east side and North Shore. (Sea turtles!

Perched on a hillside, with abundant outdoor eating areas, ocean views and a gift shop, it’s every tourist’s happy spot and an excellent excuse for the tour guides to relax with mai tais. In fact, I’d become so enamored with the place that I wrote about it in last year’s Best Bars feature.
