We dined here twice and got drinks once. We went on the 50% off night and it was still $40 for one meal including tip. We had the prime rib which was delicious. Great friendly service.
The breakfast buffet is quite good. Great made to order omelttes.
We also went down one night to trade in our free drink vouchers. I had a delicous berry mojito and the hubby had a shot of Patron.

First time trying the breakfast buffet.

We all tried the breakfast buffet. It was a limited selection. The omelet station was putting out some great food. The other food that I tried, pancakes, waffles, ect were good but just warm. Not hot like some other buffets I have tried.

The service was great. Kaui was our server for the time we were there. Would recommend asking for her.

Over all, the buffet was not worth the price that they were charging. Big price, small selection.

Tip for this place:

Watch out for the birds. They are not shy about trying to take your food. We watch one guy leave his table and the birds attacked his plate with a vengeance (flash back of the Hitchcock movie the Birds). Be sure to cover you plate with your kapkin before leaving if you still want your food when you return. We watched the birds climb into the over head lights. Seems they are nesting there. Beware of the lights.

Second tip:

This place does run some specials for dinner. Might be worth the return visit.

All of the bartenders at the Hawaii Calls have been there forever and are the nicest dudes in the world. They know the island, and they know how to make a good Hawaiian drink, or just poor a beer if that is your choice. Great place to unwind from 3-6 with happy hour.

A good place for happy hour, drink specials and bar menu reasonable. The breakast buffet is very over-priced for the quality of food. We had dinner there one evening for their 50% off and this was one of the worst dinner experiences we had. Our waiter was too busy to check-in on us and the quality of food was not worth the price even with the 50% discount.
