The other reviewers are correct...you are paying for the location and view (sunset) at dinner. There are plenty of flies and they swarm you the moment food is served. The food is average and the fish was overcooked. I tried the house made ginger ale...More

Go 45 minutes before sunset..Eat at HaleKai which is 150 feet to the right. Make dinner reservations there. It's the same sunset. Brown's BH is way overpriced and we do not find the food good enough to warrant the cost... More

Description
The AAA Four Diamond award-winning Brown's Beach House is the place for the quintessential island fine dining experience located just steps from shore. Innovative, Big Island inspired cuisine is drawn from simple, pure flavors from locally grown, sustainable agriculture and seafood. Products using the diverse variety of fresh seafood from our island waters redefining the continuing evolution of Pacific Rim, Hawaii Regional, and most recently Big Island Cuisine. Exceptional nightly Hawaiian entertainment by resident soloists and romantic shoreline sunsets at a hand's distance blend naturally with the outdoor open-air seating for a memorable evening under the stars.
