Butler O'Club l Okinawa Hai

For the past three years, my husband and I have been to the Butler Officer’s Club on Plaza for the Marine Corps Birthday Celebrations. Whenever I thought of the O’Club, all I thought of was the Marine Corps Birthday events. But recently, we have discovered another wonderful reason to visit the BOC—for their delicious Sunday Brunches! I’ve always loved brunches, but the only ones we have been to here on Okinawa have been at hotels during our first year here. The area hotels are good, but are usually really pricy.

Since our church services typically start at 10:30 a.m. and end past noon, we usually can’t hit a buffet for Sunday brunches. Even if we rushed going to the nearest one, it would already be 1:00 or 1:30 p.m. and the brunch would just be finishing up. This time, however, we had to attend a function on a Sunday and went to the Butler Officer’s Club for an early brunch. I was surprised by the enormous layout and the variety of what was in front of us. The yummy magic starts every Sunday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The spread of food was surely more than you pay for. There were the typical pancakes, French toast, pastries, waffles, and breakfast meats for breakfast. But they also have a lot more than the usual fare; they have carving stations for turkey, roast beef, and ham. They have omelet stations and pasta stations where the chefs prepare your omelet and pasta to your heart’s desire. They also have crab legs, mussels, shrimp cocktail, different cheeses, and huge platters of desserts, fruits and fresh veggies. In addition to American dishes, delicious Japanese food is also served.

  1. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Brunch at the O’Club! We used to go the first time we were here and go pretty regularly now and it never disappoints! Be sure to make a reservation for special Sundays like Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, etc. I called over a week before Mother’s Day last year and they only had 2 reservations left. When family comes to Okinawa, we take them to all our favorite off base places and when we choose to take them somewhere on base, this is where we take them. They are always impressed!
