“Disappointing”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Had breakfast here once. It was strange. Our server seemed distracted somehow. Two of our kids ordered the fruit plate. Our daughter is allergic to pineapple so we asked that her plate not have any. Server said no problem then delivered a plate of nothing but pineapple to our daughter and a plate of nothing but melon to our son. The description on the menu listed multiple fruits so this was a surprise. We asked for the plate of pineapple to be replaced, reminding her of the allergy problem, and the server took the plate away only to return with a plate of pineapple and cantaloupe. She also could not remember to bring coffee, milk for coffee, or refills once we finally got our coffee. Our other son ordered a side of bacon which was very slow in coming. The rest of our food was just ok. The bill arrived promptly but it was the wrong one! Good thing my husband checked or we would have paid for the next table's sandwiches. All in all, a forgettable experience. The servers and cook may just have had an off day but at the prices being charged ( not outrageous but not cheap either) we were not willing to give them another try.

“Hard to find a good, basic breakfast on Big Island...but not here!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We try to get to the Big Island at least once or twice a year, and we always have breakfast or lunch here at least once or twice. We have a condo at Waikoloa Beach Villas, which is just minutes away, so it's very easy for us to get here. Howard always greets us, waits on us, and serves us with a smile on his face, and makes everyone who comes in feel comfortable and right at home. Everything on the menu is very tasty, so you can't go wrong. Also, this is a great place to have lunch after a wonderful round of golf at either of the two outstanding Golf Courses here. Well worth your time when on the Big Island, and when you're in the beautiful Waikoloa Beach Resort!

“Great Food, Great Service, Great Value”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

We spend several weeks a year on the island at our home in Waikoloa Beach Villas. We love eating breakfast here. A traditional bacon and eggs breakfast is hard to come by in Waikoloa Beach Resort, especially at a reasonable price. There are great views of the golf course as it sits on the 18th hole of the Kings course. Located right across from the Pro Shop, this is also a great place to stop for lunch. We love their hamburgers! The Grill is only open until 2pm for meal service, however I believe the bar is open until later in the day drinks and snacks.
The service is always good here, though they run on a very small staff, so don't feel badly to seat yourself and don't be in a hurry. Enjoy the company you are with and the great views. This is a restaurant, not a fast food venue.
We always recommend this restaurant to all of our rental guests, as well as being listed on our website hawaiigolfcondo as one of our favorite restaurants.

“Great for breakfast, good value”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We came here for breakfast twice. Really nice view of the gold course. The food is good and the prices are actually very reasonable. Not a big breakfast menu, just the basics, but they do a very good job of the basics. Service is prompt and very friendly, will definately go back.

“Casual lunch spot”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Our service was spotty here, but it's just a casual lunch spot, so we weren't stressed about it at all. This is a lower-price alternative to fancier lunch on property.
