Just ok

Nothing spectacular about this restaurant, but it also didn't disappoint. Average menu, average food, decent prices. I prefer LuLu's Bait Shack over this restaurant. It is in the same center as Marriott Beach Place Towers.

This place is only good for the view. The food is bland. My husband got garlic wings and had to put salt on them to give them some flavor!! I got the hibachi chicken which was mediocre. If you want great food, don't come here!!!

Dirty tables, sloppy waitress and food that lack any kind of taste. This place is only good if you want to get drunk fast. I loathe myself for even giving a tip. DON'T EAT THERE!

Stopped at Da Big Kahuna, because we were hungry and it seemed to have a very good view of the ocean. (Which it did) However, the service was terrible. We waited to be seated while the manager and server conversated a few feet in front of us. After being seated we waited about five minutes for our drinks, and after... More

I'm not usually one to complain, however Da Big Kahuna on Fort Lauderdale Beach is very disappointing. My friends and I chose this restaurant out of the many located on the strip simply because we were just hungry and we needed to eat. Big mistake. We noticed there were about 3 employees working one of which was the bartender who... More

The view from our table was very good, overlooking the Atlantic . That's a big plus . The food was so so . We had the Mahi sandwich and the chili . The chili was lukewarm , and could have been better if it was at the appropriate temperature . Even so, I don't believe I would try it again... More

Didn't read the description but ordered the jambayla, because hey, it was jambayla. They make it w pasta!! Who makes jambayla w pasta?? So disappointing. Go anywhere... More

This restaurant was appalling. Not only was the service terrible, but so were the drinks. Thank God we didn't order food. Our margaritas were so bad we sent them back and the replacements were no better. Even with the lights low we could see the grime. Not recommended at all. There are plenty of better places on the Blvd to... More
