This is not your typical beachside restaurant. The food and drinks here are OUTSTANDING! After eating there the first night, we never bothered to leave the property for dinner because it was so good. The succeeding nights did not disappoint. A couple dishes I would recommend are the snapper topped with crabmeat (which was out of this world good) and the blackened ono, which was the fish of the day. And, if you have room for desert, you MUST have the banana-pineapple bread pudding. It's smack yo mama good! To top it off, the sunset views are incredible.

Best place for sunset views plus a happy hour from 3-6. Food is so-so...prices aren't bad for the upscale neighborhood, and music/entertainment is from 6-9 on the outside patio. Usually good acoustic with plenty of Hawaiian favorites mixed in to the easy listening. I live in Ko Olina, and have been to Longboards multiple times.

Kolohe translated from Hawaiian means "rascal". Yes....it's true, those rascals behind the bar live up to their reputation! I mean this in the nicest way, of course. Like most visitors, you have to sip a mai tai while in the islands. Try a blended mai tai , or two, for a unforgettable drink experience. They go down way too easy! The food is average here, but it's the only game in town at the Marriott Ko Olina resort. Can't beat the views of the lagoons and ocean beyond the reef....

We did a long walk that 1st morning after arriving at Disney's Aulani. We walked toward the Marriott Ko Olina and then reversed ourselves and headed to the Ko Olina marina. After that 2 mile walk, we were hungry. We had spied Longboards on our way to the marina, so on the way back we stopped for their buffet. It had a great omelet area, with quite a few proteins in the form of Hawaiian sausage, ham & bacon. There was also a good supply of cooked eggs, greens, potatoes and lots of sliced fresh fruit & juices. The sweet breads were too numerous to mention. The meal ran $14, which was a bargain compared to Disney. It was a great meal that held us til supper.

Made a drive out here to Ko Olina to have a nice meal and dress up a little. Had a nice meal- very yummy. Hit happy hour so we had a few drinks and stayed longer than we thought we would. They had very limited dessert menu which was sad because they had a lovely live music show going on and we would have gone on noshing just to enjoy the music.We did not have to order from the dinner menu but saw it- much more expensive. Happy hour was the way to go- good food and drink, song and sunset!!
