“Excellent fish and chips! (Ice cold beer, too!)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

Three big pieces of Ono with fries. Usually with 3 pieces, the third one is a little (or a lot) greasy, but not this one! Crisp to the end! And did I mention 'Frozen Schooner'?? :^)

“Nice view, mediocre food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2012

Have been here twice now and I have been mildly dissapointed by the food both times. My mom enjoys it and has ordered the Ocean Salad both times....thats probably what I should have had too! Pricey but has a great view!

“the worst fried fish in Kona”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

While in Kona we had fish every day. The fish here was fried way too long. It tasted more like fried fish from a fast food restaurant back home in Illinois. This was the only bad fish meal we had while in Hawaii, though, so don't worry, there are many very good restaurants to enjoy a fish dinner.

“Everything considered...great place for food & drinks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

Open air with great views of the bay. Great drinks, food is good and the service is very good. Great place to relax and have a drink and watch the people go by. Get a table by the windows and you'll be glad you came.
