We went intending to have dinner.we love fried calamari and coconut shrimp. We ordered both as appetizers. Their menu offered fried calamari STEAK. We should have resisted since neither of us had ever heard of such a thing, but the waitress assured us that it was a certain cut from the top of the octopus, pounded to tenderize, and was... More

Local restaurant off the main road but on it too. Relax stop by one evening to enjoy the local catch of the day or their oysters. Have a beer enjoy the cool air inside or eat on the lani whatever you do it will be enjoyable. Cost of food is moderate with great taste...

We went the Seafood Bar because he heard that it had the best Prime Rib. Coming from an area that loves and specializes in Prime Rib, we were excited. We sure missed a good prime rib. It was a let down. Otherwise, prices were good, drinks and the seafood we got was good. These items saved this review.

We arrived late enough to take advantage of their late night happy hour appetizers (9:30+). While the prices were reasonable, we were disappointed with the food -- coconut shrimp, quesadillas, hamburger were nothing special, although we enjoyed the salads. Perhaps the entrees would have been better, but we didn't sample nor did we any bar drinks, which were well priced... More

While staying at a North Kohala resort, we were looking for a local place to eat some good seafood. This was recommended by AAA and also some locals working at the spa I went to. There are a number of good little restaurants in this tiny port town (basically a port with a little strip mall and a couple other... More

Seafood Bar is not fancy, and is a bit of a local kind of place to hang. But I love eating here. I love the local atmosphere, It's great to hear the pidgin and nobody is ever trying to be pretentious. Plus, the food is good & the prices reasonable. The seafood fried rice is especially good combined with the... More

I have eaten at the Seafood Bar several times a year every year for as long as I can remember (10 years maybe?) It is a very relaxing place in Kawaihae. The food is quick. The menu stays the same. Drinks and beers are good. If I come with the family, I love to sit outside right before sunset. When... More

Good food and drink and a happy hour from 3-7. Menu has seafood, pupus, etc. Management and staff have been there a long time and know what they are doing. Atmosphere is Tiki Hawaiian with indoor/outdoor seating. Enjoy!

Of all the restaurants we tried on the Big Island, this one didn't seem to measure up. We came on a Wednesday night and chose a seat on the patio, as there was a big group taking up most of the tables indoors. After we got our drinks, a wasp took a special interest in our table, so we moved... More

We had planned to hit Blue Dragon, but it was closed, so we tried Seafood Bar and Grill. At first, I was a bit hesitant because we seemed a bit like the haole outsiders when we walked in, but our server was VERY sweet and when I asked if they could just do grilled shrimp and mashed potatoes for my...
