Low key marina dinner

We had a nice dinner at Bite Me. The restaurant is definitely low-key (think porta-potties for bathrooms, and a resident cat) and the food is very good and generously portioned. Just be forewarned that the parking lot is pretty creepy at night!

We ate here a couple times during our vacation. The food was excellent and the service was great. Best tuna sandwich I have had in a long while. The tuna was fresh and cooked perfectly. Try this place is a must.

My food was excellent. Fresh fish rueben sandwich with slaw and chips. Very tasty and obviously super fresh. Unfortunately, it was ridiculously hot for the outside seating. Some fans or misting machines would have helped tremendously. I was soaking by the time I left. The service was ok. Some servers were very friendly while others just seemed irritated that we...

We had lunch at Bite Me. We all had fish tacos, which were very good but I expected more fish in them at this small restaurant located in the Marina in Kona. We also bought some fresh fish for dinner at the store associated with the restaurant. The fish was excellent but a bit pricey. Small somewhat funky restaurant had... More

Fish straight off the boat. Well cooked and delicious! A local favorite. I like my fish more plain so I asked them to leave off the house seasoning. A small place right in Kona harbor. We visit a couple of times every trip. Medium pricey for dinner, but then it's Kona. Cheaper for lunch. Choices may be limited by what... More

Poke, Ceveche, and Dip hit the spot for lunch. Ahi tacos were fresh as can be. I'd take an extra cooler for poke to go next time.

After mornings hours of diving it was perfect bar to have a good lunch. Located just on marina. You can also buy a very fresh fish on the market. The bar has outside tables with a marina view. You can eat a very good fish much cheaper then in the town and portions had a good size!

We had the fish of the day several different ways (4 of us had all different dishes). It was great. Enjoyed our dinner the last night of our first visit to the Big Island.

Went in with zero expectations, what I got was one of the best sandwiches of my life. The swordfish reuben,... I know right! With sauerkraut and melted cheese, tart, sweet and deliciously fresh. Perfect end to a day of diving with the manta rays with Wild Hawaii Ocean Adventures.

Great, spicy! tortilla soup. Lots of fresh fish and cold beer. The fresh fish burrito was good. My husband had the marlin tacos which were fantastic!
