Wonderful location over looking "the water" (local swimming hole). Great live music ( not loud) and great service with smiles. Food was very good. Mostly American fare.

We've been finding it difficult to find really good food in Hawaii without busting the budget, but this was one of the best meals we've had. Our service was perfect and we had a table with a view out the window overlooking the nice pond....More
