We went to the Harbor House for lunch after swimming up north. We had been hearing good things about the place and apparently so had lots of people. It was packed. By some skillful maneuvering we commandeered a booth at the bar. By looking sieways we could enjoy the view of the Honokahau marina. In spite of being totally busy,... More

Great place to kick back and relax. We shared a fish and chips, which was very good. Nice cold beer, but not a good place for a glass of wine ( a little bottle of "Barefoot " and a crummy little plastic glass)

We stopped here for Saturday lunch after a Whale watching trip. The service was friendly and the food came super fast. It was nothing special from a culinary perspective but the portion sizes were good so we fed 6 for around $80 with a tip. The best dish was the fish special as you would hope with the location by...

Harbor House was a pretty good pub with some pretty good grub. The atmosphere makes it more enjoyable with it over looking the Kona harbor.

Husband and I went in a morning and evening dive from the harbor with only a few hours in between so went here instead of going back to our resort. Food was ok but not great. Fries weren't very good. Coleslaw was pretty tasty. Fish in the fish/chips had an a different breeding. Wasn't bad but not great. Service was... More

Hubby and I have been here several times over the years and it hasn't let us down. For him a nice cold beer, a mimosa for me. The latest time we shared shrimp and chips plus a side of onion rings. All arrived too hot for us to eat right away-just how it should be. The breading on the shrimp... More

Favorite burger place in Kona, right by the marina, and famous for cold schooners and local-kine beers (Steinlager, Kona Brew, Heineken). Quick and easy for lunch.

Great Lunch and beer schooners with a super view of the harbor. Take a walk later behind the restaurant and visit the old Hawaiian fish reserve. look for the sunbathing turtles.

Got off the dive boat and was ready for a hearty lunch, obviously a lot of others had the same idea as the place was full, but we only had to wait a few minutes. Once we figured out we were supposed to write our names on the list before getting seated. The alcohol menu is limited, and everything goes... More
