On May 9th we enjoyed looking out over the bayside from the upper deck of the Kona Beach Steakhouse and having lunch and drinks there. The shock came 3 weeks later with the credit card statement. showing the tip we entered in writing on the bill (and added to their charge to write in the correct total) had been doubled.... More

The food was great and quick, although they never came back to ask how it was or refill drinks. Always order spicer than you think, because they are light handed with the spice. My partner and I are allergic to gluten and diary and could have quite a few items on the menu. Make sure you confirm though, they have... More

this place is horrendous! Stay away. the owner is hardly ever there. he has businesses all over the u.s. and is a cheap skate. he lives in million dollar homes and he doesn't provide basic essentials in bathrooms like toilet paper, soap or napkins. I dread to even think what his kitchen looks like. the only thing that comes to... More

On our 4-day trip to the Big Island, we had gone for this Indian dinner. The location and views of this restaurant are awesome, food is good too. There was some wait for the food after the order. But my biggest complaint is the price. For a party of 4, we paid around $135 including taxes which is heavily overpriced... More

I know this place as Shivalik Kona Beach Steakhouse. I went here in January because I used to frequent this restaurant years ago when it was a Mexican food restaurant mostly because it is like the greatest location with a view of the ocean and the pier ( I loved watching the boats come in). At that time I found... More

Decided to have a nice steak dinner the last night in Kona. Saw this steakhouse from Splasher's restaurant the night before and the salad bar sounded good too. But when I tried to call them to make a reservation I had a hard time finding their phone number. Should have sensed trouble when I found out it had just been... More

My husband and I ate here the last night of our honeymoon. I love Indian so I was excited to try a new place. I was not disappointed. The food was so good! We had a beautiful view of the ocean while we ate. Our server was nice and helpful however a bit slow. Of course, I have never had... More

Portions could be bigger, used to having enough to take home, so could be just enough for single meal. Good selection on menu and $3 Stella Artois beers are unheard of in a town that charges $6-8 for same draft beer (attention Kona Inn bar). Ate a ton of food, had a large beer and 2 of us got out...
