Great for pupus and drinks. Good happy hour prices

Worth a visit. Friendly staff. Tiki bar atmosphere. Dinner menu is good if you stick to fresh fish. If you like poke, be sure to ask for "raw" or it will be served "seared"! Big mistake IMHO.

The Seafood Bar & Grill is the best bet in the area when your in the mood for seafood. I will admit I am a here because it's worth the travel and the price. When ever friends arrive from the mainland we bring them here. Always great! There is 1 exception: pass on the Coconut shrimp. It's always overcooked.

We looked all over for a descent ribeye and we found it here. This place is a local favorite and has been around for a long time. Honestly, this was the only restaurant that actually had a ribeye steak within 30 minutes of our hotel (Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel), with the exception of Ruth Chris.

We stopped here before our whale watching tour and the food was fantastic. I had the shrimp with the pina colada sauce and they were delicious. They have a happy hour with great prices and we happened to show up right as it was starting. The coconut shrimp were delicious and the pina colada sauce tasted just like a pina... More

We usually get there at mid afternoon and have a light meal and a cold drink but the dinner faire has got to be good if it is like the items we try. Lots to chose from. I have seen the place packed when we drove by so it must be good during main meal times!

The food is very good, very fresh. The place has a great older Hawaiian vibe with a Tiki like bar. There is outside seating on the balcony, restaurant is on the second floor of a small strip mall, but the views are somewhat obstructed by the oil tanks across the street. But here it is not about the views as... More

We came here for pupus and drinks and found the food to just be average. The lilikoi martini was the best part but I asked for olives on the side as it didn't come with any and she never brought any. We ordered the oyster shooters and the poke burger with the pineapple Mac nut salad. Everything lacked flavor and... More

So you are in Hawaii and thinking of seafood and the coast line and all of the wonderful views you'll have at dinner. Well, this place has the delicious view but forget about the view. We've eaten all over the world and have all sorts of views but I can honestly say, I've never had a view of a cement... More

Had a delicious dinner here. The owner (?) was most cordial and our server was so charming and friendly. We started with a salad and couldn't decide which of their homemade dressings to have so she gave us some of the liliquot dressing and the sesame dressing and they were delicious! My husband had the seafood special that evening and... More

The poke burger was good, but the slaw was fabulous. The Mai Tai was spot on. The quesadilla was very tasty. Great place to hang with the locals and get an island bar feel.
