Ribeye steak on our last night was excellent. The coleslaw was too spicy. Pot stickers excellent. Difficult to get traditional American meals, such as fried shrimp or lobster. Setting is lovely, by the water’s edge. Waiters are great and helpful.

The service was friendly and the food was delicious. The restaurant is set in the Fairmont Orchid resort and has a very nice atmosphere but quite pricey.

Free Valet parking if you are driving over. The Fairmont is a stunning high end resort just up from the Mauna Lani resort. We were seated just at sundown and were treated to a beautiful sunset overlooking the beach that just kept getting better and...More

Brown's on our short list of must-dines whenever we come to the Big Island. We were there this time for our 25th anniversary and were treated to a front row table for sunset. Top-notch service and always top-notch food & drink.

There are not many restaurants in this area lucky to have good food at the hotel. Browns looks right out to the ocean . Downside is it's not cheap but nothing is in Hawaii!

Ok it wasn't the chicken that won us over but the fish. Oh and the atmosphere. Oh and the guitarist, Frank. Oh and the server, Alice. Brown's has now replaced Ulu's as our favorite romantic restaurant with the best food. Seriously we've been coming to...More

Go 45 minutes before sunset..Eat at HaleKai which is 150 feet to the right. Make dinner reservations there. It's the same sunset. Brown's BH is way overpriced and we do not find the food good enough to warrant the cost... More

The AAA Four Diamond award-winning Brown's Beach House is the place for the quintessential island fine dining experience located just steps from shore. Innovative, Big Island inspired cuisine is drawn from simple, pure flavors from locally grown, sustainable agriculture and seafood. Products using the diverse variety of fresh seafood from our island waters redefining the continuing evolution of Pacific Rim, Hawaii Regional, and most recently Big Island Cuisine. Exceptional nightly Hawaiian entertainment by resident soloists and romantic shoreline sunsets at a hand's distance blend naturally with the outdoor open-air seating for a memorable evening under the stars.
