The food here was okay. Expensive as one might expect. The big plus was the friendly service. We ate here twice during our stay and each time we enjoyed the awesome manner of the staff. Poolside service was amazing, too.

Great little poolside snack area overlooking the beach and ocean. The kalua pork nachos were huge and delicious, as were the lava flow and frozen mo'o cocktails. At there twice for late lunch / early dinner.

This is pool side at the Sheraton. The food was good, but the menu is not extensive and that was a drawback when you are eating there multiple times.

This is a very old world restaurant. Nothing inspiring. Nothing extra. Overloaded with people and overpriced for what you get. Waiter pleasant. Kitchen is slow

We had breakfast here several times and the service was great. We also rented a cabana on the beach and our server from Lava's was excellent - he checked in on us frequently to make sure we were doing ok.

And excellent wait people. We were staying at the Sheraton and this is a typical dash-in for lunch or hamburger hotel spot. We were tired from running a half marathon the first meal, so we appreciated the kind service, fresh tacos and hamburgers and really...More
