I love Number 3. I have never been disappointed my meal. I decided to write a review and put some pictures of the new menu because the menu link is misleading and shows the menu from years ago which brings back flashbacks of some delicious food. The seafood sliders, calamari and poke was delicious. Service is always top notch and... More

Nice location, right at the golf course. Clean and airy, contemporary style. Well mixed up menu, fish tacos and fish n chips were good. Friendly service.

Come for a drink and food after your round of golf or just come for the food. The poke is pretty special. Nice presentation. We'll be back

I think this is the best place to eat lunch while staying at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel. You might now have a beach view but the golf course and mountain view is pretty nice. The food is very good. I would recommend the Sea Food Sliders, very tasty. I did not order the burger but is sounded delious.

Just an average place to eat, nothing fancy or nothing to say wow to, the waitress gal was not very attentive at all, we never got a water refill. We had a turkey sandwich with fries it wasn't bad at all and was tasty. Drinks were not as expected a little to much mix in the drink and little to... More

On our families yearly trek to the Big Island lunch at #3 is always in order. We really come for the popovers which are fluffy and delicious with salted butter. We also enjoy the food, particularly the fish tacos, the salads and the wrap. Cocktails are pretty good too!

Great spot for a casual lunch with a cocktail or two. I always get the fish tacos! Restaurant is never really crowded and offers great views of the golf course. Very airy ambiance and great service. I wouldn't consider this a fine dining lunch experience however, still a pleasant spot for lunch.

We stopped for lunch at the resort, however, the only places available were the poolside grill (extremely warm), and number 3 at the golf course. We ordered the caesar salad, fish tacos, and had a scoop of ice cream for dessert. Our server, Kui was very nice, but the food was just alright. Total for the 3 items came to... More

An airy pleasant space, and average food- makes a change from formal dining, but that was about it. Good service.
