I want to like this restaurant. I've tried to like this restaurant. However, it has just become too trying for me. In my most recent experience, I wanted something light. Not finding that, I went to the appetizer menu and ultimately selected the lettuce wraps. They were only "okay", but as I ate, I found that they were sitting in... More

A comfortable and well located seafood restaurant on the north side of Indianapolis. More seafood, a bit of sushi, meat, wide variety of food. Tends to get crowed at times so reservations are recommended. Nice place for family, friends and business. Service is quite dependable, menu covers a wide swath of food choices; suggest that most people coming here will... More

We go to Kona grill most often in warm weather because the bar area is open to the fresh air and it is a great place for drinks and appetizers.

As a chef eating out let alone dining can be a chore as errors frustrate me more than most. Normally I let mistakes roll off my back , but bad deep fry is inexcusable as some can get ill from eating oil laden fare. Worse yet being belligerent about it exasperated the situation. Why do servers and management not listen... More

Great Happy Hour drink and appetizer specials.. Has the pot stickers and BBQ sliders - very good... Have to sit in the bar to get the specials, but Bar and Patio are nice... The night we were there, appetizers were 1/2 off... and 3.00 beer... wife and I had a nice time and go out there for under 20.00....

Stopped in twice over a few weeks. While bar side was extremely busy, booth seating was no problem. Waitstaff quickly took drink orders and continually followed up for refresh.

Definitely check their website or ask them about Happy Hour. They have many appetizers at half price. Sharing a few of those with a friend and having a drink -- adult beverage or anything else -- can be like a nice meal. Now, the place fills up fast during these Happy Hours, especially on the more popular nights (Thursday, Friday),... More

I have never been disappointed and we eat here quite often. It is a great place to bring family members when they come into town. We are crazy about their Oriental Salad, either with the nut crusted breading on the chicken or with the ahi tuna.. sooooooo good.
