Dinner here is pretty much what you will find at this same chain on the Mainland: good quality food, in a pleasant environment, with good service. Caveat: I much prefer eating locally. But having said this, we had a very pleasant meal here.

Went twice during our stay, it was that good. We always enjoy their steak and services no matter where in the country we go. Ask for extra butter and do not touch the plate, they are serious about it hurting you. Asparagus is great and ahi too.

If you've been to a Ruth's Chris before, then you know what you're getting: tender steaks, tasty side dishes, and a deep wine list. But it won't be cheap. There are a few things you can do about that, though. They feature an "early bird" sort of menu that offers three courses for under $50. And if you go on... More

We have been here several times. Once as a couple... very romantic. Once with our family... easy to visit and here one another.. and once in a wine tasting tour night. Very enjoyable as far as meeting new people, nice meal and just a great experience. This is a very expensive place but have never been disappointed.

Been to one Ruth Chris then you are familiar with this one. Great steaks wonderful wine list Local Hawaiian fish since it is Hawaii. Indoor /outdoor seating with excellent service Expensive but you get what you pay for. Probably the best steak found on the Kohala coast

There was some concern on how the night was going to go. We discovered a week before another family we knew well was in Wiakola Resort and also had a reservation for the evening. We went to the resturant and tried to combine them, must admit the response did not sound promising, however about 4pm that day we got a... More

Mauna Lani local's favorite! You will always find a neighbor there enjoying the Happy Hour where superb "pu-pus" are served with an array of fine wines and cocktails. The bartenders are fantastic, friendly and professional! Hungry for a full meal? Try the pre 6 pm. special which includes soup or salad, main course choice, side choice and dessert!
