We went here because I really enjoyed some of the food we had in Hawaii and I saw they had a loco moco on the menu. We got the spicy asian wings, which were good, but not spicy. The loco moco was not good. The hamburger was tough, not sure how they accomplished that, lots of white rice and smothered... More

The view is great on a third floor terrace in front of the beach. I received two pints for the price of one. I thought it was happy hour or Courtney (I think) was being generous. As it turns out the first pint glass was filthy. The grilled ahi was ok. Bad service.

Wow, swayed by the 2 for 1 drink offer outside, we ventured in - mistake number 1. How is it possible you can get terrible service sitting at the bar with two bartenders and about ten customers in the whole place. "Can I get a Sapphire & Tonic" "A what"? and so it goes.... Hard to mess up a gin... More

This place was the worst restaurant I've eaten at in a very long time! The chicken tenders were very low quality and they topped our pizza with old, dry chicken. You could tell it was not fresh at all. The service was okay at best, the place was not very clean and the food was awful. Highly recommend against this... More

We went here on the last day for lunch. They open at 11 and we got there right at 11. It was a Monday and they were out of what I originally wanted for lunch but had wings and fries. All was good but took a little while to get our food. We were the only ones in there and... More

We decided to try Da Big Kahuna for dinner, and it was by far the worst meal we had all week. The menu looked good, and I was already eyeing their desserts (I was on vacation after all!) We were seated at a table overlooking the ocean. We placed our drink order (Coke and water), and waited and waited... our... More

We only had some drinks so I can speak about the food. But our server was great, drinks were good but you really come here for the beach view and the atmosphere.

Visited back in June and received great service from Courtney. Wings were good as well as the service but it was very hot inside. My beers were not that cold and the big fan doesn't do much justice when sitting inside. A/C might be option specially during the Summer months. Next time I'll do outdoor seating since you at least... More

Went to this place on Saturday August 23, 2014. There was a sign that read..... No baggy pants / shorts No Grills (mouth wear) No sleeveless shirts To say the least, I went back on Sunday and they allowed people in without shirts. Mind you this place is on the beach. I could not believe what I saw. I was... More

Food was overcooked and overpriced. Restaurant itself was filthy - tables were gross and sticky. Service was iffy, at best. This place might call itself a restaurant, but it's really nothing more than a dive bar.
