Location is spectacular--right on the water!! Drinks, especially during happy hours--fabulous! Eat somewhere else! The food was SO salty it was inedible. The "best" thing we got, fish tacos, was bland at best. Would not go back. We liked the idea of the servers only coming over when you flip the license plate & notify them you need something but...

Dining on the water listening to the waves crashing, we enjoyed every meal. The staff is over the top friendly and attentive to detail. Food allergy? They go overboard making sure you get only what you can eat without concern for contamination.

We were the only 2 people at the bar...while 4 tables out on deck were open on one side...then 2 more on the other side. We finally asked to dit by a small window in order to see/beach! Nice inside employees but greeter stunk!

The spot is amazing, servings massive and staff excellent. Great spot for lunch. The ribs were awesome and the coronetta's will get you eventually. Great for kids also. Good low key casual venue for the whole family.

We go for the both the shrimp and the view. For a quick lunch(or long) in Kona you can't beat Bubba Gumps. We were afraid it would be packed during the Ironman, but we got right in and had a fantastic seat right on the water. I have never been disappointed at any of the chain I have been at.... More

It was good, but not as good as the one in Gatlinburg, Miami, or Santa Monica. I still love the chain and we enjoyed it.

Wonderful lunch on the beach. The staff were friendly, the beers cold and the food was great. We had two girls with us aged 5 and 6 and the staff gave them crayons and colouring pads. We had a very relaxing time. Wanted to buy a Bubba Gump Beer Bucket but they were all sold out!!
