Not Too Bad

Watching the dolphins while you eat is probably the best feature of the grill. The fries were decent but their vaunted

We ate lobster burgers here, along with kona burgers, onion rings. The ice cream shop is next door, which we visited a few times.

Got a slider and a hamburger there. The Hilton shocked me! At the Lagoon Grill serving frozen hamburger patties? I thought at such a classy place as the Hilton you get better food than that! I was looking forward to fresh beef not frozen. I was hungry an if I knew that they were frozen I would have ordered something... More

This restaurant isn't open late at night, but if you don't want to drive away from the hotel and you want something decent, you can get a good burger here. Plus you can watch the dolphins race each other around their lagoon as you eat.

We had lunch here several times during our visit. Service was attentive and the food was really great for lunch. Plus you can sit and watch the dolphins play and perform (for free) and get out of the sun under umbrellas. Probably one of the best places to eat at the resort. (note if the pool area isn't too busy... More

Good place to eat. Yes, it's expensive like everything else, but at least the beer is good and cold. Burgers are tasty as are the huge hot dog they offer. And you get to sit outside and look at the ocean and hear the waves crashing on the rocks.

We had a nice early dinner here with great service. Two hamburgers and an appetizer cost over $50. The music was nice, but loud enough that I couldn't hear the ocean. Note: the shortest access from the hotel had stair and was not wheel chair accessible.

After walking 20 minutes from Ocean tower to get to this lagoon side location for an evening meal, they put up the closed sign, something they do every night at 7 pm. I'm only guessing but it might have had something to do with the dolphins who live right nest door and who probably needed their rest after another big... More

We had lunch here one afternoon while staying at the Hilton Waikoloa Village. The restaurant is right near the dolphin pool and you can watch the dolphins swim and play while you eat. The food was "OK" and an easy place to grab a quick bite during your busy day at the resort.

This cafe is outside next to the dolphin quest show. The setting is very nice, the food is good, but the prices are high for what you get. The Mai tai's are good but pricey. My husband I had lunch with drinks and the bill was $79. Pricey for lunch!
