We spent our last evening dining out here and it was great. Good entertainment, good service, looking out onto the ocean. Romantic.

Had a great dinner at Brown's Beach House. The sunset was spectacular, service was great, and the food was wonderful. And all we tried the Ahi, Kamachi, venison and several salads. All we're excellent. Thank U Brown's Beach House!

Fantastic meal, the Ono special was absolutely amazing, my wife's filet mignon was grilled to perfection. Our server was very attentive, took some amazing pictures of us and the incredible sunset view we enjoyed at our table! Loved the music and ambiance!

Resort prices, very expensive. Don't mind paying the prices if the food follows. We thought the food was very mediocre.

We dined here recently with our family. The ambiance and the setting is outstanding. Being outside and watching the sunset was excellent. Hard to beat. We found the service to be very good. The food was also very good. Overall, a nice experience.

Pretty outdoor setting. Nice setting for an evening cocktail. The food was fair, with few gluten-free / diary-free options. I substituted corn tortillas for flour, and they were tasteless. Pleasant staff, and well-stocked bar.

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.
