Resort prices, very expensive. Don't mind paying the prices if the food follows. We thought the food was very mediocre.

We dined here recently with our family. The ambiance and the setting is outstanding. Being outside and watching the sunset was excellent. Hard to beat. We found the service to be very good. The food was also very good. Overall, a nice experience.

Pretty outdoor setting. Nice setting for an evening cocktail. The food was fair, with few gluten-free / diary-free options. I substituted corn tortillas for flour, and they were tasteless. Pleasant staff, and well-stocked bar.

If you are seeking a beautiful natural setting, great food, and excellent service, look no further than Brown's. Enclosed by swaying palms, listening to live music, with the ocean as your backdrop, you will be glad you came. Very attentive and accommodating staff, a menu offering many local produce and seafood options, a comprehensive kids' menu, and a great drinks/wine... More

Top-notch dinner outside in front of the beach. Super romantic and the food was very good, although not excellent. Service superb. And the Fairmont hotel setting makes it all that much more elegant.

We dined at Brown's on my mom's birthday. The staff was very accommodating and made sure we had a nice table off to the side, but still with a beautiful view of the water. I was commenting to the manager on how beautiful the nearby hibiscus were, and he told me to pick one for my mom. So we had... More

The AAA Four Diamond award-winning Brown's Beach House is the place for the quintessential island fine dining experience located just steps from shore. Innovative, Big Island inspired cuisine is drawn from simple, pure flavors from locally grown, sustainable agriculture and seafood. Products using the diverse variety of fresh seafood from our island waters redefining the continuing evolution of Pacific Rim, Hawaii Regional, and most recently Big Island Cuisine. Exceptional nightly Hawaiian entertainment by resident soloists and romantic shoreline sunsets at a hand's distance blend naturally with the outdoor open-air seating for a memorable evening under the stars.
