This was our first dinner on vacation and the others had a tough time being as wonderful. Loved the atmosphere, the music and the open sky. Food was terrific and don't forget your mango Mai tai.

Chef Noah cooks up delicious island cuisine, and patrons enjoy it under the stars with balmy breezes and live musical accompaniment. You wouldn't know the ugly port was just across the street, because this restaurant was built with its outdoor patio on the inside of the building. All you see are palm trees and sky. The perfect island dining experience,... More

We went to Blue Dragon on the advice of a colleague. After a few days of standard resort foods, we had high expectation for this place and we were not disappointed. From the outside, the restaurant is somewhat non-descriptive; however, once we stepped inside, it was one big party! We were glad we made reservation. There was live music with... More

We went to the Blue Dragon with relatives and friends. I advise to have reservations as the restaurant was packed that evening. Our group consisted of adults and a child and 3 adolescents. I think all of us enjoyed our time there. There was a man playing slack guitar and afterwards a band I think playing rock and roll. The... More

Suggested by a friend, I thought it was closed but it comes to life 4 nights a week with music and magic and great freshly sourced food. It is open to the stars and really fun. One night we heard the island Big Band, a real treat. The service was wonderful, very thoughtful and the waiter and bartender spent time... More

From the outside this doesn't look like much, but step inside and its amazing! Open air dining room and stage or outdoor patio. Staff was friendly and happy. Dinner was wonderful and the place was packed. We lucked out on getting a reservation that evening. Definitely worth a return visit.

We went with a party of 8 who had never been there before. We were very impressed with the quality of the food. I ordered the lamb chops and they were wonderful, cooked rare like I had ordered and with some very nice sauces. The only thing that marred evening was that two lettuce wedges with chicken were ordered but... More

Hawaiian-style Super Club par excellente! We were here for dinner after a day of knocking around North Kohala and were treated to a terrific 3-piece Jazz Combo while enjoying a fantastic meal under the stars. Service is spectacular; efficient, warm, and friendly. Cocktails are brilliantly concocted - we both had a citrus Margarita that was super refreshing (and more potent... More

The Blue Dragon offers creative and delicious food and cocktails together with great service, live music and dancing under the stars and swaying palm trees. It doesn’t get any better than that! We visited the restaurant twice on a recent trip to the Big Island. Our favourite appetizers were the ahi stuffed avocado, the dragon “ballz” and the Hamakua mushroom... More

this note is just an update. We have been to this restaurant at least five times over the space of several years, and it has always been a delight -- with interesting entertainment, enjoyable appetizers and entrees, and excellent service. Ask for a table in the outdoor court to get a good seat for the entertainment and the stars and... More
