“Long travel day munchies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I went looking for a snack after a long day of travel. Walked across the street from King Kam Marriott and found Splashers. Noticed the BLT on the lunch menu and even though it was clearly after dark the staff accommodated my request. It was one of the best BLT's ever! To go box complete with utensils was the perfect way to wind down the day (the Lavaman ale didn't hurt either!).

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

This is a nice outdoor restaurant with some retro decor and all the Hawaiian dishes and drinks you'd expect.

“Other than the view, there is nothing special here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Splasher's was recommended by some locals as a good burger place. Burger was OK. Fish tacos were not bad but needed more fish. Grilled mahi mahi disappointing. Greasiest onion rings in town.

Sat at bar for 10 minutes waiting for table and bartender ignored me. To busy chatting with his buddies, I guess.

Guy playing guitar and singing was really good.

“Why bother making a reservation?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

They just can't get it right after 3 tries. Made reservations for table on the outside rail 2 weeks prior to Annual King Kam parade. Called a week before parade to make sure reservations were in place (They screwed it up last year!) Yep, they had table reserved in my name. Went in day before parade to double/triple check, still good. Arrive at restaurant Saturday morning and (Big Surprise!) table is taken!! The hostess said we were late. Yeah, 5 minutes! The other party had just been seated and should have been moved. This is the third time Splashers has blown our reservations. It won't happen again! Food is marginal, bathrooms filthy, service good but hostess/manager is a basket case.

This was our first night pick and was good value for money well prepared food. Nothing stunning, but fine burgers and fish taco's.
