Best restaurant in Kona!

Came here on honeymoon and we wanted it every night. Ate there multiple times. Their nachos are the best nachos you will ever eat! Definitely go there!

Went for dinner twice in our week staying in Kona, both times we really enjoyed our meals and the service at Splasher's Grill. I would definitely recommend trying it and the view is great too.

A lovely little grill, up on a roof in a great part of kona overlooking the ocean. They sometimes have live music there, we were able to enjoy a gentleman singing and playing the ukulele beautifully. Food is solid; it won't completely blow you away and change your life, but is certainly delicious. We've thoroughly enjoyed both times we were... More

Splasher's was within walking distance of our hotel. Reservations are recommended. We booked only 1/2 hour ahead and had a table with a harbor view. Drinks were pricey but yummy. Food was pretty good too. Service was friendly. It is open-air on a second floor so the breeze is nice. If it rains (as it did), they can bring down... More

I visited Splasher's several times and found the staff friendly and efficient. They have the best fish tacos that I found in town. The fish and chips were excellent also. I didn't try the burgers but they looked amazing. A man at the bar beside said it was the best he ever had. I didn't care much for their breakfast,... More

We stayed at the Marriott across the street and found their food prices high. We walked over to Splashers and there prices were decent and affordable. The food was good and the manager was attentive. The place has a nice view as well.

We selected Splasher's the first time because it was right across the street from our hotel. What a break. the food was very good, the prices quite reasonable, the view is fantastic and the service was excellent. It's stuff like ribs and burgers, with a full bar. The mai tai got rave reviews from the "expert" in our group. Nothing... More

Very convenient and comfortable place with a view of the water. The Ono fish wrap was good. We also did takeout.

The 2nd floor location and outdoor atmosphere is great. We went for dinner. The service was fine. The food was fine but nothing exceptional from our point of view. It was good enough, and we would go back however.

Good place to eat. Our family ate here twice in four days. We voted with our feet. Parking is terrible, and walk if you can. Service and food good. We liked the fish tacos and found them to be the best in Kona Nice view from second floor of harbor and Marriott hotel. Aloha
