This was my son's pick. He cannot get enough poke on this trip. They has a nice touch with mango! He was not disappointed!
I had the fish sampler...lobster tail, shrimp, oysters, poke...omg! It was my main meal! The lobster tail was full of meat! My son had the macadamia encrusted mahi...presented with scalloped taro! So good!
Dessert...banana coconut cream pie, macadamia nut chocolate pie and kona creme brûlée. Holy cow! Can you say, food coma???
The manager Joel, came a talked to us for awhile....super friendly!
The meal was fabulous and came with a wonderful view! This place is a must!

We were offered a sample of the chowder while shopping and had to come back for dinner. My non-fish eating son ordered a bowl of chowder as his dinner. Other food good too. I had fish and chips and was even offered malt vinegar for the chips. Husband had surf and turf, very good. Oldest son had fettuccine alfredo, leftovers of which were taken back to our condo and fought over the next day. However, the highlight of the night was our waitress and staff. Our waitress(name? but mentioned she was from Oregon) interacted with our children and she and other staff tried to kendama with them. We all had a blast.

The location s good but the food was fair at best. We ordered some fish but it came late and was not prepared as we requested. The waitress did her best but the kitchen was not responsive.

My sister and I had breakfast here today and had a wonderful time. You can't beat the location: right across from the Kailua Pier and the restaurant is open to the cool ocean breezes. Old-time visitors will remember the former Ocean View Restaurant here. We ordered omelets but there was a slight mixup with our order. Our server (Margaret) was wonderful and a new order was delivered before we knew it. Both omelets were delicious with fresh veggies (and artichoke hearts, yum), perfectly cooked and seasoned. We've had lunch here before (great fresh fish dishes) with a similar positive experience.

Great ambience even tho you are sitting next to the road. The harbor and ocean views are super nice. Felt like we were VERY rushed. Know we were among the last diners arriving at 8pm but would have liked to relax and be more leisurely. Felt like they wanted us to hurry so the staff could go home even tho the sign said they were open til 11pm. We were in/out in 45 minutes. Food was very large portions with lots of vegetables. Staff were friendly and attentive.
