For the original inn on the big island the building is big and impressive but a little worn. The restaurant is beautiful inside and outdoors where most people sit. The food was good but not great and a little overpriced even for Kona. The staff was very nice and drinks were excellent. We had a very good dinner, the views are spectacular and while we had better dinners at better prices this was still someplace I would recommend for a visit.

In my four days on the island the staff and food here was recommended and the best cheeseburger I ever ate along with awesome service made my days that much better. Thanks.

We love their Calamari sandwich which is popular with many. We like going for lunch as it is often less crowded. The seating is great in that you have an ocean view. The Coconut shrimp is also good.

In search of the perfect man tai - in a glass - not in plastic? This is the place to be. This bar / restaurant is definitely classic Hawaiian in terms of decor and service. We had a wonderful snorkel experience earlier in the day and then came downtown.
Our experience, over the years, has been consistency outstanding. We are there for happy hour and had mai tais. They are yummy - one of the best on the island. And - at happy hour - a very good value.

OMG, You should not miss this place, The Calamai Sandwich is BOSS! I might have been a bit hungry, but my taste buds still know delicious when it meets it. My favorite here has always been the shrimp cocktail, but today they hit it out of the park with the CALAMARI sandwich. You have to try it, and if you don't, well you're just dumb. LOL ok... your not dumb but that's because you love it!
