Went there 3 times this visit and the food is plentiful and very very tasty.. Their steak entree was way tastier than the one I had eaten the night before at The Outback nearby. Ribs are to die for... Waitress was friendly and service was excellent.. Prices are great also. Atmosphere was super..

We visit this bar every trip to the Kailua-Kona area and even though they have changed their name and I am sure owners, the prices and service remain the same - GREAT! We had not been to the Big Island in a couple of years, but wanted to check and see if our dollar was still stapled to the walls,... More

I went here with my husband because his team was in the NFL playoffs during our honeymoon. I was not looking forward to spending time in Hawaii watching football in a bar, but we had a blast! When we arrived at the place was full, some locals invited us to sit with them. It was packed with fans. Everything was... More

We were looking for the Big Ten Network to watch the WI Badgers men's basketball game and found The Frisky Seal, formerly LuLu's. Several TVs, a good beer selection and some of the best nachos we have ever had. A great place to watch sporting events, located right on the Main Street, Alii Drive in Kona.

Great place to go & watch the football playoffs. Too many TV's to count & great harbor view of the water. Good food, great Bloody Mary's & very personable service. Will go back for sure.

Hard to find. Small entrance between two other restaurants. Look for chalk marks "The Frisky Seal" on the sidewalk. Upstairs on deck so you see the great sunset, cruise ships and people. We had the Banzai burger which was a very large angus burger served with fries. One burger will serve two people. Succulent is an understatement. Great prices.

After reading some of the reviews we have been stayng clear of this place. Since Kona specializes on poor service and no sports we had to try it to watch he Seahawks game. It's still real dirty, same employees as before. Looks like they may be clean it up, but at an islands pace. Derive was pretty good and the... More

I thought we were in for a hamburger fries and beer place on the second floor but everything they brought had a fresh taste and appeal. The chicken sandwich my daughter had was one a person could choose, cornflake crust? toppings? condiments? she loved it. I got the salad in the fried bowl, great and my husband was happy with...
