Quiet and romantic by the beach. Great dinner. It's a Fairmont hotel so prices are accordingly. The chocolate and the creme brûlée were phenomenal.

We had dinner after the sunset. The food was tasty, the service was great. Nice live music when we were there in a Sunday evening. A good place for a quiet dinner near the ocean.

This place really knows how to make you feel special when dining there. Great service and food was top notch, but then again you do pay for it. Not something we did every night, but definitely worth doing at least once during your stay.

This is an outstanding restaurant with beach views. The food and service is exceptional, but be prepared to part with $200+ for dinner for 2.

Our family of 8 concurred- this restaurant was NOT good. We are all experienced travelers. We each ordered something different and no one was happy. Someone in the kitchen needs to go back to chef school. If you want to spend a lot of money, try Canoehouse or Tommy Bahama, both of which are excellent.

We had dinner at sunset and it was just about perfect. Bruce, our waiter, arrived at just the right times all night. The big eye tuna, his recommendation, was one of the best dishes I have ever tasted - and we have eaten at some of the best restaurants in the world. I can't wait to return next year.

We came here on the recommendation from friends for the location and it did not disappoint for that - it is right on the beach front and you can sit outside and really feel close to the ocean. We ordered two different fish dishes and they were VERY good - ahi and ono - and ate every bite. At least... More

The deli is great for a quick breakfast or lunch. At night it turns into a fine restaurant. I appreciated that the tables are spaced apart--so you can hear your partner and the ocean--but not noise from other tables.

Great place for steaks and sea food. The staff are efficient and friendly. This is a fine dining place and I suggest that one book a table in advance. Tables with ocean view are the best.

Excellent food in a great setting. Save some room for dessert if you can. Nice wine list with some reasonably-priced options.

Description
The AAA Four Diamond award-winning Brown's Beach House is the place for the quintessential island fine dining experience located just steps from shore. Innovative, Big Island inspired cuisine is drawn from simple, pure flavors from locally grown, sustainable agriculture and seafood. Products using the diverse variety of fresh seafood from our island waters redefining the continuing evolution of Pacific Rim, Hawaii Regional, and most recently Big Island Cuisine. Exceptional nightly Hawaiian entertainment by resident soloists and romantic shoreline sunsets at a hand's distance blend naturally with the outdoor open-air seating for a memorable evening under the stars.
