Great food and atmosphere. Ahi melted in your mouth, and service was awesome. Wished we had a Bite me locally. Locals recommended it, so it can't be better

Went there today looking for a good place to buy some fresh fish to take home to the condo. Since it is a fish market and a restaurant, we decided to eat lunch there too. We ate fresh Marlin tacos and they were fantastic! And they are only $2.95!! We had a 2 year old with us so we got him the kid's fish and chips. Our grandson loved it The special of the day was the Sunday Broil - 1/2# shrimp, 1/2# snow crab, corn on cob, and potatoes. The fish used was Ono. It was great! We're going back. And soon!

Yes, it smells like fish that’s because it's a FISH market, bar and grill at the marina.

But wait! Did you know they serve breakfast? Well they do. It’s the only place at the marina open at 6:30 am. I ordered a veggie omelet along with a cup of coffee. Suffice it to say, it was good. End of story.

The servers act like they are doing you a favor. We saw two couples get up and leave within minutes of one another. They were both seated in different areas when we arrived and we received menus and drink orders before them. An argument ensued between the responsible servers on who should be serving them..resulting in both sets of customers getting up and leaving. Items we requested with our orders were forgotten and required numerous reminders before we received them (additional seasoning, melted butter, drink refills, etc.) We own a vacation home on the island and visit frequently but after giving this place numerous chances, we will go elsewhere. There are many more and better seafood restaurants in Kailua-Kona. So....maybe we are the ones saying "Bite Me!!", lol.

(Jan 2-2013) While this restaurant had a great location the service was terrible. The servers did all they could do, but it was obvious at 2:00PM on a Wednesday with a light crowd they could not keep up . Just adding one person to buss tables would have allowed the wait staff a better opportunity for success. Several tables got up and left due to the long wait. After 18 minutes I had to stand up and confront one of the waitresses to get someone over to our table to start our order. Again, wait staff did the best they could, they are just short staffed. (Locals commented to me this is just the way this restaurant runs, they come for the view).
Food quality was ok but would not go back under any condition.
