My wife had previously eaten here, and thought the food was pretty good, but that the service was really slow. So..... We decided this time to order take out. Order was taken efficiently, and the food was ready when promised. Food was very tasty, and satisfying, but we aren't talking gourmet... read more

Best family run restaurant on the Island! Great food, fantastic staff and fun music! I plan to visit again, anytime I am on the Bug Island. The prime rib is something you really must go in for on Fridays!

Stopped here on a recommendation from a friend who we were visiting in the Village. It is set in the Waikoloa golf course. I had the Kalbi lunch plate and it was delicious! the dining area looks out at the putting area and driving range, but was not annoying by any means. Prices are typical island prices.

We had beef and chicken. My wife liked her beef but not my chicken and I had the exact opposite reaction. It was not... More

Location on golf course was great. The food was really good. The sizzling fajitas were a huge hit. It was reasonably priced, but service was VERY slow and it wasn't real busy.

I love going to their Taco Tuesdays. $3 tacos. Very good food. Understaffed with servers, Had to wait 30 minutes to get my check after asking for it and another 30 minutes to get my credit card back.l

My husband had fish and sweet potato fries that was very good. I had their award winning Tortilla soup with an Hawaiian twist that was excellent.

Banjy's was a great surprise. The looks and location were deceiving but the food was tasty and the beer was cold. Great place for a casual meal.
