“Decent food but nothing extraordinary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

I'm not sure why the Hilton has such a limited choice of restaurants. They seem to let the guests leave their property for better choices nearby.

Having said that, the Lagoon Grill is a nice place to have lunch because you can watch the dolphins while you eat. I had an ahi burger that was cooked properly and was good. My wife had the swordfish sandwich that was overcooked.

If you go to the Hilton, don't forget to have your parking validated, and make sure you ask to see the shark tank.

“Fresh, tasty & lagoon side :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We had a couple fantastic lunches here at Lagood Grill - The crispy fish sandwich was my favorite. Service was always attentive, friendly & went out of their way to entertain the kids. Kids menu makes it family friendly - and the awesome 'fruity' drinks make it a favorite for adults too.

And convenience....wow, can't get more convenient to Dolphin quest or the lagoon if you tried! It was fun watching the fish, eels, dophins & sharks while we waited for lunch.

“Good burgers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

As long as you don't set your expectations too high, this place will fulfill your vacation-food needs. Our burgers & salads were all fresh and the location is nice with views of the sunset & the dolphins.

“Great canal side location w/ Hawaiian Mex flair”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Good food & service (pricey drinks) and very relaxing outdoor atmosphere. Nice spot to break from day's visit to Hilton Waikoloa. Don't have to stay there to enjoy experience!
