Nice place! Good vibe with tasty local food. Ahi burger is awesome. Simple, without tons of dressings, but very yummy! Outdoor patio views are nothing impressive

If you are looking for a break from the high priced resort restaurants, Seafood Bar and Grill may fill the bill. But...the trade off is the quality you can expect. My wife started with a quesadilla that could have served two people. The server should have warned of the size. I had the escargot. It was an interesting preparation with... More

Small and always crowded but we would eat their steamed fish every night if possible. Service is exceptional. We go early to avoid a wait. The macadamia nut pie and ice cream is delightful.

Was my favorite meal during our whole stay. It was a bit pricey at $31 and it doesn't come with anything else but it was delicious. View leaves something to be desired - is right next to a bunch of tanks. But we were able to sit outside and the weather was wonderful. They were nice to let me order... More

Ok, this is one of those hidden gems. The calamari is the star. It is a steak and beyond compare. Yes, not rings!!!! We also had the special of the day which was grilled fish with cilantro sauce, mashed potatoes and green beans... simple but amazing. The guys had the bar fried rice and it was delicious. It is really... More

This is our 3rd trip to the big island and our family loves getting away from the "resort type" restaurants so we come to Kawaihae to enjoy a nice dinner and the Seafood Bar and Grill never fails to please. Even though it sits right across from the ports large fuel tanks, you can still sit outside or in and... More

Just 12 miles from Waikaloha, we tried to get to the Plantation Grill. It was filled so we had dinner upstairs at the Seafood Bar and Grill. Service was great, friendly and fast. The Mai Tai's are as good as you will find on the west side of the island. The fish was delicious. If you get past the view... More
