We ended up here 2 times, in one week. The Mai Tai's are excellent and a they have a good selection of beer, on tap. You can sit and enjoy good food and drinks, right next to the beach. I recommend the Mai Tai's; both traditional and coconut were fabulous. The fish tacos and the fish and chips are made... More

Overpriced 4 oz piece of fish that was tough and dry. Chose the local fresh catch because that is usually the best fish entree on a menu. 3 out of 7 at our table ordered the simple fish as it is called. Two of us had it prepared with a Japanese dried seaweed and sesame seed topping and one ordered... More

We happened upon this place by chance just walking along the coast from where we were staying. We parked ourselves in a couple chairs and had a great time eating and drinking delicious beverages right on the beach. We had the best service from Lacy, she was super attentive and helpful... we picked her brain about best places to go... More

We came for happy hour and were delighted to sit on the beach! Drinks are a great deal, but appetizers were mediocre. Our dinners of fresh fish were tasty but definitely pricey for this beach shack. Portions were generous, coconut shrimp and chefs specials will not disappoint!

Best place we ate on the Big Island. Great sunsets. Good ambiance. Delicious pork nachos and poke. Fish tacos were just okay. Nice happy hour. Wished the wine glasses weren't so cheap. Came for happy hour / dinner and lunch.

Been her twice, and will go again. Location can't be beat - right on the beach, feet in the sand. Wide selection of food and cocktails. First time was late (9ish) and food was no longer being served, live music was wrapping up. Lots of people that were very happy. Bar staff were friendly and fast. Second time was for... More

If you want to dine at the beach - this is the place. We went for lunch and overall it was pretty good. The service was friendly, attentive and food was delivered promptly after ordering. We had a variety of salads and sandwiches. Food was above average but nothing special. I would go again just for the location and view...... More

Loved our early dinners at Lava Lava. The sunsets were spectacular. Food was good and service was quick. This is a very popular spot so make sure you arrive early enough to get a seat before the sunsets!
