Decent food, bar type atmosphere. Solid lunch place. Good for basic preparations, although the mexican pork special we had was delicious.

This restaurant was a great surprise. Total Hawaiian style atmosphere. Server Kai provided fast service and was full of aloha. The food was delicious . We both had their prime rib special and ate every bite. Then we enjoyed their warm chocolate lava cake with tahitian vanilla ice cream. Left full and very happy! Located upstairs across form the Kawaihae... More

Evening out with the kids, seafood for all and everyone had a good meal and enjoyed the night out. The view sucks, but the feel is great and the food excellent.

Food was OK, with a nice bar atmosphere. Service was good and it works with kids during lunch. The outside deck is nice but only when its cool outside

A guy at a near by sea food market recommended this place to us and it was great. The bar tender was very giving with the rum in the mixed drinks and the food was great.

after two visit, both with mediocre food, i won't be back. it's okay-- the setting is appealing, and the service is friendly. just bland and overpriced food. also the worst margarita i have ever tasted. deck seating is pleasant for an early lunch (afternoons are hot).

This restaurant is a bit off the beaten track but well worth the drive. The service is excellent. The manager/owner stopped by our table twice to inquire how we are enjoying our evening. The food was excellently prepared with attention to detail. The fresh fish dishes were vey good.

Using the Big Island Revealed totally found us this gem of a place. We were spending the day beach hopping and decided to head up to a Macadamia nut factory (separate review). It was after lunch and we were starving. It is off the road opposite a shipping barge type place. It is located on the upper level of the... More

This restaurant is located on the second floor above a few stores. Inside and outside dining tables are available. Unfortunately there isn't much of a view because it faces oil tanks, but the food is very good and prices reasonable. We especially liked their fresh fish dishes and seafood fried rice. Try the prime rib special on Tuesday's. Salads and... More
