It was our last evening in Kona in August, 2014 and my husband, son, and I were looking for a good place to eat. We came across Bubba Gump and since we had eaten in others, we knew the food would be good. We were seated right on the balcony's edge near sunset: superb view of ocean and sunset! The... More

Service was quick. We noticed that no matter what time we passed by this place or had a meal, there was hardly anyone there. They have started doing breakfast every morning and we ate here one morning. There was only one other couple in the whole place. Once for breakfast where I ordered just the fruit plate, the strawberries were... More

We had dinner a couple of times. By far, the best meal was Jenny's Catch with Lobster Butter Sauce - it was absolutely delicious! The staff was great and the server challenged us to Forest Gump trivia game...we lost!

Beautiful view of the ocean while you eat. Service was absolutely spectacular. Food was good, nothing over the top but very good. A definite tourist spot.

We've been to Kona many times and always have avoided Bubba Gumps - it's a chain after all. On this trip we finally ate there (twice!) and where pleasantly surprised. The food was quite tasty and the portions were nice. The local fish special was outstanding. The drinks were a different story. The drinks looked nice but are mostly juice... More

Service was superb and fun, concept and location great, but the specialty main was all deep fried and not particularly good value.
