“Great for Happy Hour”
Reviewed 27 October 2012

While not the most upscale place around (my folks would never consider sitting down, the last time they were on the island...) the service is great: friendly, and fast.  Happy hour prices make this a great place to sit upstairs, enjoy a couple pints of local brew and watch the sun set.

“Good food, great location”
Reviewed 13 October 2012

This is an upstairs bar / restaurant with great ocean views.

Food is a good selection of standard bar food which was tasty and reasonably priced.

A nice place to relax with a burger and beer while watching the sunset, much better than the disaster next door (Humpys).

“Meat market dive”
Reviewed 6 October 2012

Personally I can't stand this place. I used to live nearby and drop in for burgers and drinks before the evening rush but after learning more about the misogynistic management practices of the owners, I've vowed never to set foot in there again. If you're looking for a hot, crowded, sweaty, bump-n-grind, hook-up joint, then this is your best bet after ten o'clock (but before two). One of the few establishments in Kona that can boast an after hours shooting in the parking lot, Lulu's is legendary for the closing time fights as all the horny local boys scrap over who gets the drunk tourist chicks for the night.
