The Seafood Bar and Grill has happy hour specials from 4-6. These include several of their regular menu items. Particularly good are the coconut shrimp. Drinks are also on the happy hour. Good place for an early dinner.

We stayed just a few minutes up the road. Not much to choose from in this area of North Kohala, but in this little shopping area you can find burgers, seafood, pasta, shave ice and more. We had been to another restaurant the night before, so decided to try this one, after a recommendation from our hosts. We were not... More

This is a great restaurant with a very unique inside decor. We had lunch there a few days ago and we're pleasantly surprised with the Hawaiian feel and decor. All of our meals were serviced quickly and with friendly service. The presentation used local plants and flowers. My poke burger was very taste and everyone else also enjoyed the meals.... More

This place is 3/4 locals and 1/4 exploring visitors. It looks and feels old island. Located down by the pier but unfortunately across the street from a cement factory so there is not really a view....but you don't care because being inside with the authentic Hawaiian atmosphere is why you go here. The food is really very good and carefully... More

We went here for a late lunch/early supper after a day at the beach. The decor is old Hawaiian. There is an outside deck but we sat inside as we were hot. There was a nice feel to the place with friendly, welcoming staff. We had the seafood quesadillas which were very good and quite filling. The beer was cold... More

The food is consistent and moderately priced by Hawaii standards. They offer a variety dishes from land and sea. Tuesday night's the Kiawe wood smoked prime rib is the feature item on the menu. It's a popular dish and quite tasty. It's about $31, but it is a generous portion with sides. The lunch is scaled back to appetizers, salad... More

Calamari steak! Mon Chong fish served in Waimiea sauce. Excellent! Good beer selection. Coconut Shrimp were more like prawns - fantastic! Ate there twice in 3 days.
