We had been here for drinks and sunset previously. It was recommended to us by people who used to live in Kona. So we came back for dinner. It is not a place to get a fast meal if you are there over sunset time....More

I doubt they have a gluten free menu per se but they offer lots of seafood options so if you are on a gluten free diet you should be able to find something yummy to eat.
