Stumbled across The Seafood Grill our first night on the island. We were seated promptly. Menu had good options for kids and adults. We would go back in the future. Parking is a bit of a challenge.

We make special trips from the other side of the island (Hilo) and always enjoy the great food, drinks & atmosphere (not the view 😜). The oysters Rockefeller & Oyster Shooters last night were onolicious, as was everything else we ordered.

We live on the Hawai'i island. For years, we could rely on this place for adequate pub food in a local, kama'aina atmosphere. Prices here, now, rival the sucky hotel restaurants and the portions are diminished. Capable and friendly wait staff, nice sunset location near the harbor, very friendly manager. Happy hour, begins at 3pm and ends at 6pm., who... More

This place is known for it's blended B52's -a nice treat on a hot island day. But if you don't stay for dinner and only have drinks, they were less than accommodating - and you'd figure that 8 people ordering two rounds each would warm some hearts, but sadly, no.

We are a family of 6 so eating out is prohibitively expensive. (We mostly cooked for ourselves in our condo.) This splurge for lunch on a whim was worth every penny.

Our daughter turned us on to this place several years ago and it remains steadfastly our favorite spot to Happy Hour or dine in Kohala. Yum and fun....! Always enjoy the Mai Tais! (Being across from industrial area we always call Seafood Bar and Grill "TANKS ALOT" )!

Driving north of Hapuna Beach looking for lunch, we found the Seafood Bar & Grill. It was Saturday early afternoon and the restaurant wasn't busy at all. We didn't ask, but assumed we were served by the owner. He was friendly and genuinely interested in telling us how the foods were prepared. The aha poke was delicious! We had great... More

If your in the area of Kawaihae, this is a good spot to stop for good food. They have a good menu for a fairly small place. Dining is indoors or out on the balcony. Food prices as reasonable, and portions are generous.

In short. Awful view but oh wow the quality of the food is second to none, great friendly service with an atmosphere to match. and for a price that we weren't able to match. Couldnt recommend this highly enough if you want great food and couldn't care less about the view.
