GREAT BURGER

We went there for a quick lunch before we went golfing. Staff was very accomodating for our 6 people group and put tables together for us. I ordered a burger because I was craving meat. One of the best burgers in Kona. Huge size, good bun and everything you would want as far as lettece... read more

This is one of the few places we found that was open past 9:00 pm on a week night. The food was a little pricey, but worth it. Lots of dishes to choose from with a local flair. Try the ribs -- they just fall apart and are so delicious. The ambiance had a cozy feel, and our server was... More

On our first day on the Big Island we were STARVING by 4:00 - someone suggested this place & we were so lucky!! We got there during happy hour. We ordered 3 appetizers off the happy hour food menu. The coconut shrimp was delicious - unlike any I ever had, we also had a quesadilla & a calamari "steak" fried... More

My husband and I had wandered up the coast north of Kailua-Kona and wanted to avoid Waikola village down the road, but we needed a bite as we had been on the beach most of the afternoon. I actually wasn't too hungry so just got a quarter of my husband's chicken BLT which was easy to share because it was... More

Definitely the best Mai Tai I have had in my life, and not a bad price at happy hour. We tried several appetizers and an entree and the portions were small, though the prices were steep. I had better shrimp at a drive in in Hilo. The sauces were ok, not great. The waitress suggested some local things to do,... More

I ate here three times while on vacation. We tried the calamari, poke burger, seafood combo, beef salad and lunch special steak burrito. My favorite was the poke burger and beef salad. Sit outside and enjoy the laid back vibe with spot on food.

This place has a nice bar and great lunch and dinner menu. Nice staff. Fresh fish of the day is a great choice.

We stopped here because it was one of the few things open in the area. I'd actually give this a 3.5. For two people the bill was more than $40 including tax and tip. We only had sandwiches and soda/tea for lunch so this seemed just a bit pricey. The food was mostly good though, and our server was friendly.... More

We stopped in on our way up north to have lunch. It was Memorial Day and a lot of restaurants were closed, and we were happy to find this one open. My wife had a very nice salad with their coconut shrimp on top, and I had the reuben and onion rings. The salad was huge, and delicious; the lettuce... More

Having spent days in the beach resorts we were ready to find more real Hawaii. The town and view from here is nothing to look at, but the food and service fabulous. We met Dave the owner, had dinner on the balcony, perfect service and most of all both of us loved the food! The Mai Tai was perfect as... More
