My husband and I enjoyed Christmas dinner at this restaurant, and it was a lovely experience except for the long wait. But that was to be expected on a holiday. They had a couple of festive holiday menu items. I had the prime rib, and...More

Good fresh fish. Great service friendly staff. From.the outside thought it had a chain franchise look about it. But pleasantly surprised by how comfortable it was on the inside. Will go again

Stopped for happy hour 2 to 9 pm (?). Drinks and snacks. Reasonable selection of draft beer and all kinds of cocktails. Appetizers; calamari, tacos, and fried artichokes hit the spot.

This was our favorite dinner in Kona. The chowder is the best I’ve had...ever. We had the special risotto with scallops and shrimp, and the grilled Mahi-Mahi. Highly recommended. Excellent, perfect service.

I booked dinner here based on the great reviews. When we arrived, I almost turned around. The place has a tourist trap/ diner feel when you walk up but I’m glad we stayed. The ocean views were lovely. The fish was fresh and tasty. The...More

Over looking the bay while dining on great food, served with friendliness, and at reasonable prices; what a great time. We went on a Tuesday with no cruise ship in port; super relaxing. We’ll go back. Try it once, and you’ll go back as well....More
