“Pretty decor falls short on flavor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Another grill, another theme, same old food. Kona Grill, albeit not Hawaiian, has a great interior and is located near the city's inner harbor. During the week it is a great draw to those working in the area and the place is buzzing at lunch. The lunch menu is appetizing to the eye, yet the flavors that are delivered fall short on the palate. The soups and sandwiches, while providing sustenance and looking good, simply fail to deliver on flavor.

“Terrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in after baseball game for drinks and appetizers. Went to bar for drinks but was told by waittress to go to table and she would bring them. Waited about ten minutes for them . She brought menus but she never came back to take our order. We finished our drinks paid and left. Waitress was working hard but everything was very unorganized.

“Awesome local beer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We had lunch at Kona Grill when we were at the Baltimore Grand Prix. We originally got beer there earlier in the day at their outside stand and it was so good (and reasonably priced!) that we decided to lunch there too. We were seated indoors immediately (the outdoor seating was already reserved). We each had very tasty sandwiches and more beer. The meal was very good, the service was excellent, and the price was great too.

“Nice little restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I really enjoy the vibe and the fusion cuisine at the Kona Grill. When in Baltimore I stay at the Hyatt and the Kona is just around the corner. Took the grandkids (8&6) there last time out and they loved it! It was a fun and different restaurant for them and they both really enjoyed the food.

Excellent overall experience. Friendly staff and great food. This restaurant offered a package for the Grand Prix weekend that I would recommend to everyone.
