Casual bar, local vibe on a golf course

This place has friendly service, great fish tacos, reasonable prices, happy hour, and was close to our resort. When we returned for a 2nd evening, it was tented and closed.

Tried this restaurant on our recent visit to the island and will not be going back. Ordered a pina colada that tasted like it was missing half the ingredients...honestly the worse pina colada we've ever had. Told the waiter and no attempt whatsoever was made to provide a replacement. Then they had the nerve to try to charge us for... More

Went in, we were seated and given menus...10 minutes later told "oh, we don't serve food on Mondays" ... what a joke of a place, looks dirty and gross anyway.

We were there New Year's Eve. Our waitress was slow to attend. Our food was not as described on the menu. 2 ordered the "Prawns stir fry". Described as 7 prawns served with seasoned stir fry vegetables over a bed of rice. We got 5 and 6 prawns in a Cajun sauce over rice. No need to tell you that... More

We had lunch & drinks here twice this week after playing golf. The bartender/waiter (Jasmine) was awesome! She was busy, but very quick and friendly. She even remembered our names the 2nd time we came in! We had salads which were very good. The chicken was cooked and seasoned perfectly and the bacon was crisp. Would recommend.

My family went here after we picked two of our family members up from their golf game at 12:15 pm. We decided to eat at this restaurant because it was close and we didn't want to spend a bunch of time looking for another restaurant. We sat ourselves in the restaurant that was basically empty and our waitress took our... More

Food is ok, about what you would expect. Our waitress was super eager to do a good job. Unfortunately the chef let us down as it took us four choices to find something they still had . How can you be sold out of pizza at 6:30 pm. This place could be an absolute gold mine with its excellent location... More

Lunch there was ok. There drinks are a little on the high side. Wait staff is good and friendly but the management is a little less desireable. Seems to need someone who knows how to run a restaurant properly and take care of their clients. New management might help. They don't seem to utilize the restaurant as it can be... More

We have enjoyed eating here on past visits to Waikoloa, but the service and food seemed to have gone downhill a little. It took forever to get menus, after we were told to seat ourselves. Food was pretty much cooked to order, but it took forever to get our food. And they were not even busy! We have always loved... More
