The food was not bad but not even in the ballpark of its price tag. The service from the staff was extremely slow which is unacceptable at this price point. There are many other options in Waikoloa and all we tried had better service and presented more quality for similar money. Save your money and dine elsewhere.

I was vacationing on the Big Island with a friend. We got in late one night after a 10+ hour "Circle The Island" tour offered by Gray Line . . . . . . a very good and worthwhile tour. Being too tired to go our to eat, we ordered room service from this restaurant which is located in the... More

Chose a $35 pre-fixe option for dinner which included soup, salad, main entree, and dessert. The food was tasty and we had a nice view of the pool within the Marriott. The main course portions were huge (I ordered pork ribs and it ended up being two meals for me). The restaurant also had a kids menu which also came... More

Had my 30 year class reunion dinner here. Crab legs and prime rib buffet. Food was good and service decent but not attentive. Desserts was ok nothing spectacular for being in Hawaii. The sweet potato bars were good. My guests enjoyed themselves!

The buffet is very good at $45 per person. The steak is excellent and the crab legs are bountiful. The sides and trimmings are excellent as well. We ate here on August 1st. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and found the buffet to be worth the price in comparison to nearby food fare.

Beautiful setting, Wonderful, attentive bartenders, but the food sucks. Both our dinners at $35.00 and $40.00 were cooked to dry sawdust. How can you screw up a piece of local fish? Most Hawai'i restaurants, outside of 5 or 10 in Honolulu served sh#t*y food. Don't expect it to change. This eatery is housed in a hotel who has little care... More

We had dinner a number of times at the Hawaii Calls Restaurant during our recent stay at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort. We're not normally big fans of eating dinner at the hotel we stay in but we couldn't bypass the convenience and great setting that the restaurant offers. The restaurant has a number of specialty nights which make it... More

This place was good not great. We had buffet breakfast everyday there and it was good. Lot of choices that got rotated frequently. We had dinner there on a special lobster night. It was good and not too expensive. They ran a bunch of special which helped take the sting out of high Hawaii prices. Eat there on one of... More

The food was a bit pricey, but the service was outstanding, and the view was spectacular. Other than room service, this is pretty much your dining option at the hotel. A short walk to Kings and Queens village, but other than Roy's or Merriman's this is as good a place as any.

This restaurant and bar at the Marriott Waikoloa Beach Resort is a great location to enjoy open air dining while having an excellent meal, a bottle of wine, and watching the sunset. To make it even better go Monday or Thursday when all entrees are 50% off…what a deal! The restaurant overlooks the hotels infinity pool and the beach with... More
