We vistited the Hilton Waikoloa just for lunch. Stayed down the coast in busier Kona area, but decided to come see the resort area. The dolphin ponds next to the Lagoon Grill are fabulous. The price of the lunch (a $20 Kobe burger or a $25 lobster burger) really covered the cost of the dolphin entertainment. Burgers were good, not great, but certainly above average for a hotel experience. Walking from the lobby to the Lagoon Restaurant (including the 61 steps down (and then back up!) showed off the highlights of the resort. Green turtles came within feet of the walkways, and the waterfall groto gave off a cooling vibe.

Maybe we hit it on a bad day. But I had the Kobe Beef burger and it was not good. Tasted as if they had rewarmed it. French fries tasted as they had been cooked in old grease.

Food was just OK. Not great. Chicken wings were overcooked. Salad was not much more than lettuce leaves. Mixed drinks and Castaway IPA were good. Not too many items on the menu looked enticing. Good for a quick bite to hold you over before going elsewhere.

Great outdoor atmosphere next to Dolphin Adventure. Our server, Valerie, was very sweet and friendly.

This bar has a great location, great service but VERY HIGH PRICES for what you get. You are a captive audience, the Hilton management knows it's too much trouble for you to get in your car and drive someplace to eat so they double the price.

The restaurant is next to the dolphin pool - worth eating at for that alone. It's also one of cheaper eateries in the area. That is what moves this from 1 to 2 stars. The food itself was not good. Salad was not fresh (at midday) and the summer rolls were literally rice paper, lettuce and mint - totally tasteless if not for the mint.

I am not a fussy eater, but don't like to pay for (literally) tasteless or wilting food.
