“Great gathering spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Go on Friday night for the Jam session. Lots of people, great local musicians and hula dancers. Hula punch is dangerously good and the bartender makes a nice Mai Tai (aka strong).

“Great Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

The restaurant will be under construction soon, due to a Kitchen fire. Once the restaurant reopens, it should be excellent again. The bar is open and has wonderful Hawaiian music for FREE every Friday night from 4:00 to 6:00. Great music &lotsof fun.

“My opinion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Was great until kitchen fire caused closure, has been closed over a year, still has a bar. The views and oceanfront location are exceptional.

“Great location; bad food and poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

To start with the good, the location is stunning! Great ocean view and music early in the evenings on Fridays. The menu is very limited, which would be ok if they hadn't run out of over half their nine menu offerings (including rice, hamburgers, and mahi mahi). When my chicken arrived, it was completely RAW and the waitress was very nice about getting a replacement. The servers are not knowledgable about the beers offered or what goes into the drinks. Too bad for such an amazing location.

“The kitchen burned down two years ago, so...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

...how could this be such a highly rated restaurant. They now offer food that is cooked on the grille - mahi mahi, chicken, hamburgers, & a deluxe hot dog - sandwiches or a dinner plate. Limited fare, obviously, but tasty and good quantity.
