Restaurant and bar right on the beach with beautiful views! Great service and great food. Highly recommend happy hour! The mai tais were great and you have to try their Kona Coffee Cheesecake!

Great place to have a sunset dinner. Live music and good food. My only criticism is that their menu doesn't change much.

Went for the Happy Hour. Stayed for the sunset. As advertised best MaiTais we had on our vacation. Had the Nachos, Wings and pulled pork sliders. Finished up with a White Russian and shared the cheesecake. Had a guitar player and Hula Dancer. Great service despite the chaos (yes this is a hopping place). We sat in the bar area... More

Such a beautiful restaurant. Food was ok but the view is amazing. I wish they had good wine glasses but I guess they are trying to keep glasses off the beach. Their coconut cake is really good.

We visited this restaurant a couple of times during our visit to Waikoloa and enjoyed the good food they had. There was nothing fancy but it was delicious and we went fairly early to eat (about 5 or 5:30) so we didn't have too much trouble finding a table, but after 5:30 it did get very busy (we were on...

The setting was nice, the only thing is the service is a little slow. We arrived early for the wedding and my spouse and family ordered drinks from the bar and it took half an hour which rushed them to drink up before the wedding service.

We stayed at the Hilton Waikoloa and ate here out first night. This is a great place to eat. The ahi nachos appetizers are a must. We loved this place so much that we went a second time during our stay! The sunsets are very special here!

We stopped here at the recommendation of a waiter at Huggos. We weren't disappointed. We enjoyed Korean wings and Kailua nachos. Both were excellent. The Mai Tai's were also first class. Get there early to avoid the crowds because parking is a bit of a challenge.

We had a really nice sunset experience here. The drinks were great and the view spectacular. The servers were really nice and the atmosphere is delightful. They even have music and hula during the build up to sunset. One tip: we made a reservation for dinner and had to settle for after sunset. They have a pretty large bar area... More

Excellent food. Service seemed a bit overwhelmed at times but to be fair it was Friday night with both reserved seating and open seating in the bar. We had a group of 8 and everyone had a good time.
