Awesome view!

The service was great too, and it was a very clean place. The view outside while you eat is beautiful. you have the... read more

The music here was awful but the food was okay, a little over priced. You're better off going up the road to Pueo's to skip the loud and awful music.

A 45 minute drive from Kona, we headed for Waikoloa. Away from the tourist traffic we found Banjy's Bar and Grill, located on a golf course. I had kalbi ribs, served with potato salad with a touch of dill and jasmine rice. My husband ordered a burger that was fitted to his taste. Huge burger and meat must have been... More

Went to banjys with friends visiting from Portland and was told to have a seat by the waitress. We sat and a few minutes later she took our drink order. After waiting a few minutes another hostess or server came up and asked if we snuck in. After I told her the waitress told us to have a seat, she... More

We went on a Friday night when prime rib is available. After hearing from another couple that portions were huge, we elected to split a meal between us. We were glad we did as we still took home some stuff. the meal comes with both soup and salad. Soup was clam chowder which was probably the best I've ever had.... More

Beer: Longboard on tap for $4 bucks on Happy Hour along w/ Stella. Other wise their beers are $6 bucks, and not worth it. Food: I usually grab a putters burger ( slightly smaller then the main burger) but it comes with fries for around 8 bucks. A side of fries is joke at around $6.50 so $1.50 more to... More

Banjy's is a great place to have decent meal at great prices. My husband had fish & chips and I had teriyaki chicken. Each meal cost $13.95, and at happy hour we had Stella beer that was $4.00 a glass. The portions were large, the fish & chips included choice of garlic fries or fries with an aioli sauce. The...

Affordable restaurants with great food are few and far between in the Waikoloa resort area. We stumbled across this restaurant by accident, asking the locals in Waikoloa Village for a place to grab a good lunch. It's actually part of the golf course in Waikoloa Village, six miles east of the main highway thats runs north to south on the... More

Not bad for a sports bar, especially because there's not many options near by. The food was good on both visits. But the server (Jasmine) was not a real people pleaser. I think it's safe to say she's not into her job.
