It has potential,

But there were a few problems. On the plus side: friendly service, great view, and the pork on my sandwich was tender and tasty. The problems: dirty silverware, bad ranch causing me to pick up the ketchup, which was empty. Got one from another table. Needed salt, none at my table so grabbed... read more

We walked up the strip considering the many dining options in the area. Our first choice had a 45 min wait so we we chose to check out Da Big Kahuna. The hostess was very nice and seated is promptly. We should have suspected something was up as this place was not even half full on a Friday night and... More

Visiting Big KAHUNA. because of the 2-4-1 special. And we were checked in by the bouncer which made us leave our fat Tuesday's cup underneath the receptionist desk. After sitting down for 15 minutes with no waitresses coming to aka us about drinks or food or anything.... We had to leave. It's unprofessional and unacceptable. Lulu's was open and willing... More

Went here one afternoon for lunch. Decided to give this place a try because they were offering 2 for 1 drink specials. Ordered 2 fish bowls ... boy they weren't kidding! They emerged with 2 huge bowls enough to share among 4 people per bowl. Food was decent, I had a salad that was pretty good.

Great food, if you like Hawaiian Cuisinfg. They have authentic Pork and fish wrapped in ti leaves, steamed.with rice. Just like Hawaii. They also have the Da Big Kahuna Burger, Ive seen this monster in Hawaii at there other franchise on Kuhio Ave Waikiiki. 1/2 pound Terriaki Burger, with bacon, lettuce, toms and a grilled slice of pineapple. Yum!

As all the other restaurants in this complex they offer a great view overlooking the beach. But that's about it. This is an OK place for lunch, or a quick snack and some drinks after beach - but that's about it. The place is huge - but in genereal not well kept, kind of dirtylooking, and the service was nothing... More

They have a really nice view of the ocean from their terrace. But their food is just average bar food.

Cool atmosphere beach bar that overlooks the sand which is probably the only great thing about it. Visited last week & was NOT impressed with their "2 for 1" drinks at all. Pretty positive there was zero tequila in the margaritas I ordered, as I literally sucked both down in less than 10 min & didn't feel a thing. Also,... More
