I've been here many times and the food is usually good. Their Asian chicken salad was good, but their fish and chips serving size was the same as my sons keiki chicken tenders. The food came fast, but our waitress didn't come to refill out water or iced tea. We waited 10 minutes after eating for her to notice we... More

If you are looking for a luncheon site, this restaurant has a great view and is not too crowded. The food was good although the service was slow. We had a very comfortable private room. When it was time to deliver the food, the wait staff got together to bring the food out in a timely manner. We preordered the... More

A lovely outdoor restaurant with great food. Indoor also. We only went for lunch. The prices are definitely great also! Sandwiches $9 with salad or fries!

Had lunch after our round of golf. Great service. Ordered a drink that I didn't like, and they replaced it immediately with no questions. I had the Mahi sandwich and my girlfriend had the chicken Cesar both were good. The view on a clear day, which we had, worth the visit.

We did not eat in the restaurant upstairs, but in a downstairs meeting room. There was a buffet lunch set up for the meeting and the food that was provided was very good indeed. The salad greens were fresh, and the mahimahi and steak poke were both very tasty. One can't go wrong if those items are on the restaurant... More

If it wasn't for the lovely view overlooking the golf course, valley, etc, this would have been ranked terrible as the food was regrettable & the service poor. The daily pork lunch special at $7.95 sounded like a winner but the pork was very dry & overcooked. The vegetables were good, however. Although you have to wonder how can you... More

The prime rib was dry, the clam chowder tasted like mash potatoes, fortunately I put the gravy from my chicken on my mash potatoes otherwise it didn't have any taste. The shrimp cocktail looked the mini shrimp sitting in its own defrosted water, the cocktail sauce was good. The chocolate mousse pie was melting. At least the fruit was sweet.... More

Just found about the place by accident. Such a beautiful ambiance place with nice surroundings. Employees are cool, the food is well done as for the flavor and presenttion. The cost is a bit pricey but worth it. I mean crab legs and prime rib ALL YOU CAN EAT, where can you get that anymore. 'Missed Valentine's dinner,so I got... More

Only one of a few buffets in Wailuku. The crab was tasty and so was the fresh sautéed salmon. Prime rib was tasty, but overcooked. The salad bar was ok, not many toppings. The desserts were disappointing, very bland in taste. Many of the hot choices were bland as well...not sure I'd go back.
