The banana baileys colada and flatbreads were delicious. Loved the location on the waterfront watching the seaplanes land and take off. Service was great. On our list to check out again.

“Best waitress!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We were here recently on a stop during our cruise from Fort Lauderdale. Isis was our waitress. She was pleasant, efficient, friendly while were dining. My husband and i split a chicken wrap - the portions were the exact right size for us as we are small eaters! I am a Pina Colada lady when on vacation - and they met the needs!

This is our second time at Big Kahuna - and Isis has been our waitress twice now! We are looking forward to going back to see her!

“Just right”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

This is no 5 star restaurant. Don't expect gourmet cuisine. Do expect some of the most friendly people on the island, tasty grub (jerk chicken wrap was real good) and good drinks at a reasonable price. Enjoy!

“Okay for what it was ”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

Our dinner choice was a toss-up between this and the number two rated place on Trip Advisor and this one won out because it was much cheaper. But you get what you pay for.

It wasn't all awful but my burger was overcooked and dry and the best thing about it was the bacon and cheese I got put on it. My husband did like the jerk Mahi Mahi sandwich and the local root beer. The service was friendly and fast enough. Also, be aware that there's an 18% gratuity added to the bill.

Overall, this place (like most other stuff in the area) thrives off of tourists piling off the cruise ships looking for some local color amidst the deluge of jewelry stores. The sadly ironic thing is that the local color only comes around after all those people are gone. The best part of the experience was our table looking out over the harbor and watching how the place transforms when the big ships sail on.
