“Great Food - Cool Atmosphere!”
Reviewed 26 November 2012

This place is an awesome, off-the-beaten-path place to grab lunch! We enjoyed our meals so much that we planned to return again, but just ran out of time...

The open-air seating looks out over the marina and really lends to the laid-back atmosphere. Based on the characters sitting at the bar enjoying afternoon drinks, we kind of assumed that this was something of a locals' hangout.

Service was friendly and quick, but the real kicker was the incredible food. I had a scrumptious shrimp sandwich, while my girlfriend had excellent fresh-catch-of-the-day fish tacos. Not only was the food tasty, but the the prices were significantly less than restaurants in near-by Kona! As such, you really felt like you got your moneys' worth here!

“Being at the marina, it SHOULD have been great but...”
Reviewed 24 November 2012

...it really didn't deliver. While the casual beach/harbor ambience is a plus, the food was only OK. The shrimp tacos scored a good with my partner, but my ceviche left a lot to be desired. I couldn't even eat it and I am a big ceviche fan. There are no beers on tap...only in cans, which is always a disappointment. This was my second visit to Bite Me amd my last.

“The plastic utensils need to go....”
Reviewed 24 November 2012

We enjoyed our lunch at the Grill, ordered the Pupu platter. Very nice assortment of local flavor. The local beers are awesome. The only problem is the plastic eating utensils. The plastic utensils do not seem to be environmentally friendly for an island. We bought Kona Crab to take home to cook and it is amazing. You need to get there early, and it is not available all of the time. Many fresh fish and seafood selections can be purchased.

“Good food & drinks”
Reviewed 18 November 2012 via mobile

We stopped for dinner to try their famous fish tacos. They were tasty but lite in the fish. Otherwise, nice place and off the tourist path. The local beer is very tasty.

“No fish in fish tacos”
Reviewed 18 November 2012

I've been going there for lunch since its opening several years ago, but no more. They are cutting too many corners. My lunch today included 3 mahi tacos which were 98% cabbage and a few little crumbs of fish. To make matters worse, the price was increased to $5 per taco. They should be honest and advertise it as "cabbage taco with small crumbs of fish".
