We didn't try the fish tacos they're known for but we were satisfied with what we ordered for a late lunch (with the exception of a rather ho-hum shrimp entre). Service is prompt and friendly, but there's no rush: it's a friendly place to hang out and relax before going on to the next stop. The drinks we tried ran... More

We came in late from Alaska and splashers was one of the few places open still. Very friendly and welcoming staff. I had some pretty on point ahi tacos. I noticed when we left almost every person on staff thanked us for coming in on our way out. From the bartender to our waiter to the manager and even one... More

We stayed right across the street from Splasher's and went there one night late for a drink. There was still a line to be seated at 9:00 pm! The Mai Tai was excellent, and we ordered the Machos (nachos) which made a tasty late-night snack. You can order off the dinner menu until 10:00 pm. The restaurant is open-air and... More

Amazing coconut shrimp with pineapple salsa. So good. Waffle fries were a huge hit with my kids. Nice atmosphere with a great view and a pleasant cross breeze. Oldies music was the sound track. Bathroom nice and clean.

Waffle fries are to die for as are the burgers. The avocado Swiss burger was terrible and cooked a perfectly juicy medium. My spouse had the Mediterranean wrap and was similarly impressed. Service was friendly and unhurried. Wonderful casual spot overlooking the harbor along the main drag.

We stayed at Kona Seaside Hotel and got breakfast coupons for Splasher's. The three options we got to choose from were all very nice (especially the banana/macadamia pancakes!), and the staff was friendly. Seemed to be a very relaxed atmosphere.

Walked over from our hotel for an early morning breakfast. Great location, up on the second floor, all open to the outside with an awesome view of Kailua Kona waterfront. I guess the food, atmosphere, location & service all came together just right that morning. I had a pretty normal breakfast of an omelette, sausage and has browns. I cannot... More

Located in beautiful downtown Kona, Hawaii. I believe the best thing about the restaurant is the second floor that overlooks the downtown and Pacific ocean. The food is very good and the tropical drinks are excellent. Dining on the second floor with a breeze flowing throughout the restaurant just screams Hawai'i. Splasher's is located on Palani Drive across the street... More
