Good food, but not so great.

We chose this restaurant from the advertising of local live show. However, we just found the local singer not the Hawaii cultural show. Food was okay, but it's a little pricy. We were surprised with how ice cream looked.

Beachfront casual atmosphere restaurant. Ordered steak dinners and grilled cheese for granddaughter. Wasnt impressed by kids menu choices, nor the poorly grilled cheese we got, but the steak dinner was fabulous. I have eaten steak at much kore expensive restaurants before and was not as impressed as I was here. Very yummy garlic sauce. A little pricey for dinner though.

The Marriott burger is one of the best on the island! I also highly recommend the BLT wrap with Avocado! Very, very delicious! The Kalapaki Grill is located on the beach next to the Marriott Beach Club pool. Weather your a guest at the resort or just enjoying the beach this is a great place to grab some food and... More

We ate lunch here most days, it comes in nice little round bamboo serving boxes. The tacos were something else! Tuna sandwich wasn't bad either!

We weren't expecting much but breakfast ended up being very good. I had the poke bagel with cream cheese and my husband had the egg white omelet and they both were very good.

Had a good lunch by the pool and had our complimentary Mai tai cocktail here. The Mai Tais' at Merrimen's are the best but this one was not bad.

We liked it here very much. The food was so good, every time. The Mai-Tai's wonderful. The servers were super friendly and efficient. Its right at the Marriott and so convenient. Extremely relaxing, eating and drinking, while looking out at the ocean. A peaceful place with wonderful food!

Location is the main benefit, next to the pool and wait staff come around to take your orders. Or, there are tables by the Grill if you want to stop in after golf, etc. Typical lunch type meals - quesadilla, burgers, wraps, etc. but nicely presented.
