Fantastic Views. Pricey, Though

This place has fantastic views, especially at sunset. They food and fancy, boozy drinks are great too. Actually,they have access to the hotel kitchen, so it's more than your typical pool side grill.

We found the Cobb and Taco salads to be top notch. The setting is nice too, as you overlook the pool and beach area.

The food, service, view were all perfect. We went there for dinner several days. At 530 we had an oceanfront table and could watch the sunset.

Staff come around while you're laying on the beach to see if you need anything. The ahi is very good as is the flatbread pizza (2 kinds; both are great)

Reasonably priced and good quality. Lobster was delicious and fresh sea food was second to none! Cocktails are a bit pricey but well worth it.

SSSSSooooo good! And on Tuesdays and Thursdays they are two for one. So are the yummy mai tais [not too sweet!] during happy hours. We ate and drank our faces off for less than forty dollars, and simply had a blast. Great staff. Lovely.

Is this the fanciest dinner dining on the Kohala coast? No, but the food is very good, the drinks are strong and properly made, and you can't get much closer to the beach for sunset dining. We ate here the first time after a long afternoon at Beach Club beach, so we showed up in coverups and flip flops -... More

I had some delicious fish wraps and the calamari was delicious. The location was gorgeous. Had a problem with flies around the food that was annoying.
