We have eaten here a number of times. The food is really, really good. The fish tacos and burgers are very affordable! They also have this new "Living Salad" where they bring you a salad still growing in a box with a great dressing and you cut your own salad greens at the table. The salads are also served with baby organic heirloom vegetables.

My wife and daughters love to dance and it is very "child friendly" so it is the music and entertainment that make it extra wonderful. Its definitely worth a visit. Not open every day, so check on that before you go if you definitely want great food and the best music on the island!

“unique spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

we've been going to the blue dragon for years. we're here several times a year and its always on our list. its great to see the place doing well. the food is good but its the atmosphere and entertainment that make it a unique big island experience. there's lots of locals. the music is varied and very good....there's no shortage of musical talent on the island. its definitely worth a visit.

“Great evening of music and food in one spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

Three of us enjoyed a great evening here. Our reservation was for 8:30pm and we were seated right on time. My mom ordered a regular Mai tai, my husband had the wine flight that was offered for the night and I had a Castaway. For food we finally decided on the sweet spring rolls and wedge salad for my mom and my husband and I shared the fish tacos, the cheese board and the super awesome tempered avocado stuffed with poke (wish we had two of those!) All were presented beautifully (though a bit dark to really appreciate the presentation) and tasted so fresh and full of great flavor. We ate our meal and sipped our beverages, finished it off with the chocolate decadence (again, should have gotten two!) all while listening to Lorenzo's Army doing a great job of rockin' the dance floor, which was filled to the brim and then some. We read up on the place, did our due diligence. so we were aware it would probably be loud. And it was. But that's why we went .. we wanted the atmosphere of music and dancing and open night sky and good food and good drinks and a good time . Blue Dragon delivered! Some of the reviews almost made us decide against going but I am so glad we gave this place a try. This will become a regular spot for us, especially when we get visitors!

“Outstanding evening at the Blue Dragon!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

We had a party of 13 people who met up for our last night on the Big Island at the Blue Dragon. We had so much fun! This was a great venue for excellent food and music, as our group pretty much danced the night away! We were in the open area in the center of the restaurant, where we could look up and see the stars and palm trees. We had absolutely NO problems with bugs/mosquitoes as some of the reviews suggested, and I am somebody that would probably be targeted by a mosquito if they were around. :) Great choice for a group of people, we would have never thought by looking at this place from the road, that it had the open air restaurant in the middle. Outstanding evening!
