Stayed at the Econo Lodge so it was only natural that we stopped over to Kayo's for Happy Hour. Great apps at great prices. A huge selection also. Our Bartender and Waitress were very friendly, knowledgeable and took great care to meet our needs! My daughter raves about their Thursday Ladies Night - stop by and check it out and... More

We went here with a large group for my birthday last summer. The seafood was amazing!!! I still think about the dinner I had! Definitely not cheap, but worth it for a delicious seafood dinner! They also have great happy hour!

Good to verg good depending if the owner is at this restaurant. Food and service can be inconsistent but overall a good dining experience. Menu is a little on the pricey side and food can vary. God location and ample parking. Reservations suggested.

The wait staff seemed snobbish. The food was just okay for the price. I had the razor clams which weren't prepared properly, not tenderized. Overall I was disappointed with the experience.

Looked up Steakhouse in Bend on this App and this is the only one that popped up. The place is nice with white tablecloths, polite servers, and a generally nice atmosphere. We were dressed very casually, yet some of the customers were more dressed up. The food was okay, but a little expensive. Two of us got the Top Sirloin... More

Yup, Kayos's has it. Flown in every other day. They have wonderful Hawaiian fish, delicious local fish, and a large variety other dishes. Two of us enjoyed razor clams, one calamari, and one had escolar (Hawaiian). Excellent service and a fun night.

Almost every local we asked suggested Kayo's when we mentioned seafood. It's in an old Denny's next to an Econo Lodge, but do be fooled; this is a top-notch restaurant in a city full of brewpubs! White table cloths, attentive wait staff and an owner that stopped by the table twice, but we were very at-ease in very casual attire.... More

This was one of the best meals I have eaten. The recipes were gourmet and delicious. I had the Chinook and my husband had halibut. Service was fast and courteous. Great atmosphere. Everything made from scratch-melt in your mouth delicious!

Went to Happy Hour on a Friday Night. Ordered a spicy margarita and a not too sweet lemon drop. Meh... OK but nothing special. Ordered Ahi Tuna, Steamer Clams, Caesar Salad and Halibut Fish Sandwich at HH prices. Nice to see a place that had HH until 7 pm. All the food was very good and our server was super... More

I enjoyed the meal here and the price wasn't too steep. The place used to be a Denny's which was kinda weird, but they did change it up so it didn't look exactly like one. The wine choices and food options were good and they were able to make considerations for food allergies and sensitivities. I would go back if... More
