“Nice view and food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

We had to decide from the many great items on the menu. It was all very good. Loved there shaking fry bags. It was so nice to have a really prime view right on the beach as well. Loved it.

“Do not visit if you are a vegetarian!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

While on holiday we visited this venue on two occasions. The first being for dinner - which was lovely. There were only three other couples although service was a little slow the entertainment was great (traditional dancer and musician).

We then visited the following day for happy hour - this was a vast contrast the place was full but it had a lovely atmosphere and the location looking out to sea is lovely (we were lucky to get seats at the very front on the beach). However the service was perhaps the slowest I have ever had. We ordered some drinks, one arrived ten minutes later the other fifteen minutes after the first and only after asking where it was. We ordered two snacks which took thirty minutes to arrive. On the menu both items were advertised as vegetarian but when one arrived it has shredded pork on. I had to talk to three service staff to establish whther it was meat and then it took a further forty minutes for a replacement to arrive and again I had to ask two members of staff whether it was on its way. When it came to settle the bill we asked for it twice and it never arrived - so my husband approached the bar where they said they could not accept payment however after he explained we had already asked twice for the bill they stated that they would do him a favour on this occasion. Sadly this put me off ever visiting again.

I would recommend for an evening meal in low season but NEVER would I recommend happy hour.

“Great if you want a drink with a view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

While shopping at the Kings Shops at Waikoloa on the Big Island we learned of a new restaurant that opened across the street from the shops, told it was good and decided to give it a try.

While the location is awesome.....you can have a table on the beach the food and drinks are a bit pricey for what you get....paying for the view for sure.

We ate at the bar and had a few of the pupus (appetizers) we especially liked the Edamame,
pork nachos and Humus.


AJ the bartender was awesome, friendly and attentive.

So if you are in the area go for a drink and a snack...enjoy the view.

Oh, happy hour is from 3-5pm.

Aloha

“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

Great food and drinks in a beautiful setting. One of my favorite spots on the island. Get there for the sunset. It's amazing. Get a classic Mai Tai, sit back and enjoy. I highly recommend The Surfer Girl. A seafood stew that I could eat every day!
