Second time eating lunch here. Dependable service and decent food served in satisfying portion sizes. Waiters all seem experienced and knowledgeable. Restaurant on second floor and seats furthest from the bar offer decent views of the bay. Nice here when the sun sets.

Friendly bar staff, and great happy hour: $3 drafts from 3-6 pm. When it isn’t happy hour, the beers are comparable to everywhere else ($6), making happy hour a DEAL. There is a pool table, and a dance floor on weekends. Cheers!!

Laverne's is a must each time I visit the Big Island and we hung out there several times during our 2-week trip. Day customers are all ages and nightlife customers are generally the younger crowd due to the dance club adjacent to Laverne's. They also...More

We enjoyed ourselves so much the first time here we came back and told others about it! Great selection of craft/local beers as well as other cocktails. Pizza was fabulous as well as fish tacos and calamari!

They are very likely to have the game on, as they have countless TVs. Make sure of the broadcast time in Hawaii, as they sometimes delay it. 20-30 minutes from the airport to the venue.
