casual meal overlooking the lake

Order through a window which faces the lake, then sit under the rotunda directly over the lake as you enjoy your meal. Good quick casual meal if you're out there already shopping.

The price is right! The food from this little take out place right on the KIng's Lagoon was surprisingly good.. a special favorite was that macadamia nut coconut waffle with coconut syrup! and the kids were endlessly entertained by the idea of dining in a gazebo right over the water, and watching a gazillion dollar collection of giant koi fish...

The food was marginal. The person behind the counter could care less if we wanted to order or not. I would not eat there again. We were looking for a quick bite, but it was not worth stopping there.

We stopped in for a quick late lunch. My wife had the Kids popcorn shrimp which you don't have to be a kid to order it. I had the Cajun Fish sandwich combo. Both were great and we highly recommend either. One other thing. Restaurant prices in this area can and are ridiculously high. The Island Fish and Chips is... More

While the coconut shrimp are excellent, many of the dishes ordered the night we ate at the Island Fish & Chips were just o.k. or not great. The people working in the shop seemed angry to be there and there were not enough supplies available such as napkins etc. Have eaten here in the past and it o.k. value for... More

Food prices on Hawaii and especially in the resort community of Waikoloa are ridiculously high. An exception is Island Fish and Chips in the King's shops. For about $11.00 you can have a full plate of fish and chips or shrimp and chips. My wife ordered the cocoanut shrimp and was surprised the receive six nice sized shrimp. The portions... More

we enjoyed the catch if the day- Ono fish. Portions are quite generous- 3 pieces of fish, lightly breaded in tempura batter and fries. The fish is wonderful and hearty.A tasty tartar sauce and pineapple infused coleslaw is included. Two orders generously fed 3 adults. There is a lovely outside seating area beside a pond but we did take out.... More

Food is average but the weird thing that the lady didn't want to give me the ketchup bottle , she had the nerve to ask for it and take it back to the counter from our table.

The food is ok. It kind of reminded me of Long John Silver's. There are not a whole lot of choices when you are at King's Shops, so this ended up being our choice as we were ready for some lunch and wanted to stay to watch the Duck Race. We were there on July 4th and needless to say,... More
