This restaurant has been here for at least 25 years. We have been eating here for over 20. It is just a shell of it's former self but we still enjoy it. Overlooking the Wailua River, it reminds us of old Hawaii. They do not serve alcohol but there is no charge for bringing your own wine or beer. Menu... More

We enjoyed the view along the river and watched water skiers as we dined on the patio. It was a lovely scene. The chicken teriyaki, the teriyaki ribs and the mahi mahi were quite good. The salad bar was fresh and plentiful. This is an great place to dine. We return here yearly and the food is not expensive and... More

Not a very busy place. The view is gorgeous. The salad bar was not well stocked with variety. I ordered grilled chicken. The waiter said they were out so I ordered grilled mahi. Generous portion and cooked just right. Not a bad place. Could be great with a few tweaks.

Location was great and the patio was spacious and had a good view of the river. I came for lunch and was 1 of 3 people in this large restuarant. I had the stuffed pork chop off the dinner menu. I found the salad soggy and old (likely from a bag). Likewise, I don't think there was anything fresh in... More

We sat on the patio with a nice view of the river. The servers were attentive, but the food was not great. Basic bland salad bar with watery lettuce, Entrees were below average. Too bad because the service and view were good.

My meal was good as it hit the spot. It was just what I wanted. I skipped the salad and was offered a substitute to my liking. The server was very nice and our group all were very happy we stopped at the Wailua Marina Restaurant. I was 5,000 miles from home but this place however, made me feel at... More

This is an old local restaurant right on the Wailua River so eat on the patio. It is closed on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. On the weekends call to make sure they aren't closed for a private party. They do not serve alcoholic beverages but allow you to bring your own beer or wine at no charge. They have a... More

The salad bar looked good but I couldn't get over the flies and the food was so greasy. The view was pretty and our server was decent but would not go back

Took the family here on a Friday night and was a bit shocked to see only a few tables occupied, though the sparse crowds may have something to do with the luau next door, plus the fact they don't serve alcohol. That said, their food was amazing and service very pleasant. My wife and I had grilled ahi stuffed with... More

Started off with the fried chicken wings and wontons and a trip to the salad bar...Excellent. Finished with the teri ribeye steak...Excellent. The atmosphere and the view is priceless. The service? Wonderful.
