Kona Beach Steak House

Restaurant details
Reviewed March 27, 2013

the Kona beach steak house is across from the sea wall opposite the courtyard King Kamehameha hotel. Being on the second floor it offers a great ocean view with dinner ( as for patio/view seating - reservations are best) Food is great, cooked to your preferences and everything is delicious. The serice is fast and friendy and this place is popular for relaxing with a few drinks in the evening. Well worth a visit!

Planned to go further down the street to Quinn's but got caught in a torrential downpour and took shelter in the entrance to the Kona Beach Steakhouse. The rain wasn't letting up so decided to give this place a try - bad choice. The service was, at the very best, really bad. The server didn't have two out of the three types of beer we ordered. One beer came, and the other order never did arrive. Watched one other couple come in and seat themselves, and leave after being pretty much ignored. Finally just drank the one beer order that did come, and told the server we were leaving - didn't seem much of a surprise to her. Dashed through the remains of the rain to Splasher's next door, and had their normal amazing food and service. When you walk down the street in Kona, and see this place, just keep on walking right on past.

The only good thing about this place is the 2.00 beer. We stopped for lunch and waited for 20 minutes for someone to come and ask us what we wanted. We gave them our order right away as we thought if this was an indication of th service we had better order. We waited for an hour without anyone coming back to see if everything was okay or to tell us why it was taking so long with the order. The place was not busy at the time. As we still had not received our food after the hour we left the money for the beer and left to go elsewhere for lunch. Very poor service, no idea what the food is like.

We only went here (regularly) for beers. The view was amazing so we stopped in for a beer on the way back to our hotel. I agree with many that the service is not up to many standards, especially in Canada. But, we just relaxed and figured what's the rush we're on vacation. We would just flag down the waitress or go up to the bar for the next drink if they didn't notice. After a few drinks they were trained. We were a little taken back when we would say "thank-you" and their response was an uh-hu. I thought how rude then came to realize they had done this in the next place we went to. I guess that must be an alternative to "your welcome" or "ma-halo"
We did have great time and returned many times here for drinks and met some great people; locals and visitors.

The salad bar is their draw but it was not real fresh looking. Our entrees were OK (I had ribs and she had something less memorable) but the Stella Artois was just $4 so we each had a couple.
