The reasons to go here are location, vibe, and view. Right on the beach, fun atmosphere, the staff is really nice. Service is good, even with a packed crowd. We watched the sunset while having dinner. Would have been perfect if the food was any...More

This place is legendary! It’s so beautiful to watch the sunset here. Have drinks and appetizers or dinner. They have live music around sunset, at least on weekends, and little guest cottages. Sometimes you’ll see a turtle on the beach.

Ate a tasty dinner. Decent live band (drummer can sing but his time was a bit like the surf: wave-y). Nice family setting for a sunset dinner. Not your standard burger steak seafood place. Nice change of pace.

Location, location, location and this place has it! There is often live music and it's walking distance from the Hilton Waikoloa. The food is not consistent but pretty good.

This was a great place to have dinner. We got a table right on the beach. The food was decent not great. It was here that we discovered and drink called lava flow......

Very good food, and the drinks were good overall. The view is spectacular, especially at sunset. The only real negative is that they won't/don't do reservations. Young children are not known for their patience!
