My entire family loved this restaurant. The poke of the day was amazingly fresh. We also loved the Wednesday special (salmon). The service was also excellent. Hope we can come back here one day.

Saw quite a few reviews for this place that it was really good. We ate here had Fish Tacos (pretty good), catch sandwich (fair) and grilled shrimp (pretty good). Service was a bit slow.

The place was very busy and loud. After a long day we were hoping for a more calm atmosphere. However, people there seemed to really enjoy themselves.

This restaurant has good food. I highly recommend the sashimi - especially the avocado ahi. It is amazing. The atmosphere is loud but the food makes up for the atmosphere.

This was one of the best Poke spots we visited in Kona. Good 'bar' atmosphere also, so if you want to have a couple of drinks with yoru Poke, there's no better place!

We just found the Restaurant by luck. We loved the service and the food was very good.
Make sure to get Seafood because that is what the Restaurant is good for.
If you just would like to eat a Burger there are better places. Fish and Chips is huge so bring your hunger or share (-;
