Alternative to Hualalai Ula OCean Grill anniversary dinner?

Aloha... I have reservations at the Fourseasons - THIS Friday Aug 3rd in the Beach Tree for a casual dinner, and Saturday at the Ulu Ocean Griill, Fours Seasons to celebrate a special Wedding ANniversary.. We are only in the area for a few nights.. We are staying at the Marriott Waikoloa.. I notice the weather forecast is for thunderstorms Fri/Sat. I KNOW weather can change.. but wondering if there are any alternatives in the waikoloa area where it looks like the weather might be better.. We are going to Lava Lavas one night. . It DOES look like the Ulu Grill is covered.. SO perhaps it will be ok? Thoughts? I dont mind getting a little wet, just would be nice to have an ocean view/sunset with our special dinner.

There is plenty of indoor seating at Ulu. It's the Four Seasons, they'll take good care of you regardless of the weather!

There's Kamuela Provision Company at the Hilton Waikoloa or Manta at the Mauna Kea resort.

Stick with ULU. There’s nothing remotely comparable. As you said, forecasts may or

may not pan out, and weather just up the coast won’t be appreciably different anyway. As mentioned, ULU has covered seating where you can still have the open air effect and views. When I was sitting at the ULU bar in early May, the wind suddenly picked up and rain briefly poured. It was actually very cool to watch.

Ulu has indoors. Also storm forecasts tend to be iffy and highly variable by location. Just go.

We were having dinner at the Beach Tree one time and were hit with a sudden downpour. We were quickly moved undercover out of the rain and it only lasted a short time anyway. Stick with your plan A; you won't be disappointed!
