The food and service were quite good but it’s really the drinks that stand out. The mai tai is the best we’ve ever had! They hand craft this beverage with the finest ingredients, you won’t be disappointed!

Great place to stop for a lunch on a Saturday. They had live music on the patio and it wasn’t too loud or anything. Would recommend the garlic fries, and the wild mushroom pizza. Awesome! Always go with Wailua Wheat too!

The food here was excellent and service was quick. We sat outside and there was live music on a weekday, that's a plus. The prices are high but you are eating an a resort area. And that's expected. I can recommend heading here for lunch

Went there with 5 family members . Wow all dishes wonderful with great music playing in the evening air. The service was impeccable. The fresh fish was the best on the Island...we are still talking about the experience!

Ate here twice during our stay. Both times we enjoyed our meals. Sat inside the first day, was a little stuffy. Sat outside the second time, great. Had a couple different kinds of tacos, yum!
