Very good food, and the drinks were good overall. The view is spectacular, especially at sunset. The only real negative is that they won't/don't do reservations. Young children are not known for their patience!

We met some new friends for happy hour. We had sliders and chicken tenders and the happy hour Mai Tais were great. The location was on a beautiful sandy beach, they have games outside on the lawn..

The location of Lava Lava creates the perfect island ambiance. The staff is always friendly. There is always island music for entertainment. The only place to get Mai Tais, and the ribs are the best on the island. Just be prepared to wait.

Quite noisy and difficult to get into. But it's a great location right on the ocean and the food makes it very worthwhile. Our shared tuna was delicious. It's a fun place!
