Nice lunch spot!

My husband and I had lunch here during our recent stay. The view is gorgeous and the breezes blowing through the open air dining room were very nice. The food was ok, but we just had burgers.

Cool to see manta rays and sea turtles just steps from the dinner table. But our 2 meals here were nothing special - so so food, friendly but not spectacular service, and not a great value overall. Decent spot with kids but there are probably better

We stayed at the Islands of Mauna Lani on our recent trip to the Big Island. We played golf at the Mauna Lani golf course and stopped at Hui Sue's for lunch after our round. The last time we were there, it was a good place for lunch. However, this time we tried Hui Sue's twice. Each time we left... More

The best deal is to have your breakfast included with your room. The fresh pastries are wonderful and a nice variety of breakfast items.

We had lunch at this restaurant at the Mauna Lani golf course twice – service was fine - menus appeared quickly, orders were taken promptly and drinks were delivered without delay, but the food took a while to come out of the kitchen; when it did, the food was good! We ate in the area near the bar both times... More

This was the best place we ate on the island. The view of the lava the golf course and the ocean is awesome. The food was excellent. It's at the golf course at mauna lani but its not part of the course. It's independently operated and just a great place. The Calimari, caprisse, were great, so was everything we had.

Wonderful servers helped our large party to a mediocre meal. No wonder we were practically the only patrons for dinner during the busiest time of the year. Come on: the hotel needs to have an alternative to the Bay Terrace and the Canoe House, or guests will go elsewhere. The restaurants at the Shopping Center don't have the view. There... More

We stopped in for a drink and a few apps after golf. The food was good, but the limited menu in the bar was mostly average bar food.

The food is very bland, nothing special. I had fish tacos, that were very dry and my husband had a club sandwich that he said he would not order again. The place needs to get some updated furniture. I don't recommend this place
