I ordered the ribeye and it was cooked to perfection! My waitress Amanda was absolutely delightful and the bartender Misty made great drinks! Definitely coming back.

We stumbled upon this gem after a morning of horseback riding. Very eclectic menu with something for everyone. The decor was fun and we had a wonderful time! The service was also amazing.

My husband and I had dinner here while honeymooning in Kona. It was one of our top meals all vacation. Food was incredible. But most importantly, our server Jeff was just awesome. He was so great we thought he was the owner! Apps, entrees and desserts were beautifully presented and prepared. And the place is so cool. If we lived... More

Went with a local who knew the place served great food and we weren't disappointed. Large, tasty servings, super friendly wait staff, very accommodating. Loved the large menu -- everything looked tempting.

First time we have had dinner here, it is usually lunch.

Good size portions compared to its competitor across the street plus the prices... More

We had 20 people in our group to celebrate Obachan's (grandmom's) birthday. We needed to eat early due to her schedule, and the restaurant seated us an hour earlier than opening. The menu is not extensive, but what they do serve is soooo ono!

We were really proud of ourselves for discovering this little gem after a long day. It usually pays off asking the locals about the hot spots, but this time we were really pleasantly surprised. Great atmosphere, mouthwatering food and service that you will only see on the island - friendly, curious, comforting. They really looked after us and made us... More

It's a bit pricey but they gave good portions and the food tasted really great. Would definitely go there again for a special occasion. They've got great prices for happy hour between 5 pm and 6 pm.
