We love the Seafood Bar & Grill for lunch and/or dinner and/or to just come in and hang out, watch a sporting event or visit. They are definitely one of the warmest places in terms of welcoming everyone and making sure you have a good time and that you are fully satisfied with your order. The food is quite good... More

Stepping away from the hotel areas of the Kohala Coast this little gem is great for casual, fresh dining. Half the cost as a similar meal I had in the King Shops. The service & food were great....highly recommend on the big island.

We were taken to this place by a friend who lives on the island shortly after our arrival - we were starving after the 5 hour flight and in no mood for any complicated meals. This place was perfect! It has a really nice island feel with lovely Hawaiian themed decor which is what we wanted to see having just... More

This place does not look like much from the outside, but they serve some great local style food. I usually get the "Island Salad" which is huge and served with your choice of fish of the day, seared ahi poke, calamari or chicken. All are excellent. The interior is eclectic and fun, has air conditioning, and is always very clean.... More

The Seafood Bar has a relaxed, lived in feel and was a great casual dining find on a mid week evening after a day of diving. The upstairs location in June was very pleasant, the beers are the usual, the mixed drinks fruity and the service timely. We had four different grilled fresh fish entrees and all were excellant. Definitely... More

Drove up to this little port town north of Mauna Lani. Busy place, but they were able to seat us quickly. Good service. Staff worked well together. Food was really good. We all had different fish meals. Kids food was good - better options than usual for kids. Very good drinks. Not a cheap dinner, but definitely great food and... More

We drove about 20 mins from Waikoloa to this area which isn't the most attractive part of Bug Island but does have reputedly a few good restaurants. We opted for this one and it was arguably the best of about 40 meals we had on our holiday. The service was good and the seared ahi was delicious. All four of... More

We stopped by for lunch one day and had the best grilled fish sandwich on the island and service was great (Denise), so we decided to come back for dinner the next day. We had the lobster/shrimp pot pie and fresh catch and both were delicious! Such a nice change from the overpriced, mediocre food at the hotels - and... More
