Went for dinner and as usual thoroughly enjoyed it. It was happy hour so got three appetizers at half price. California roll, the fondue and a pepperoni flat bread. All were good, but not as good as chicken Satay skewers from previous visit. The apples could have been a little fresher on the fondue. Had the macadamia crusted chicken. It was excellent. A unique flavor for a chicken dish. Comes with green beans and mashed potatoes. It's a lot of food.come hungry. The have a good selection of beer and wine as well as many specialty cocktails.
The service attentive with out being over bearing. Food was served promptly.
Side note, my 6 year old loved the kids meal California roll with chicken fried rice and carrots.

My family and I have eaten at Kona Grill quite a few times and the food is always very good. We both had the Kona Burger on our most recent trip. It is a very large burger and it was cooked just as we wanted it to be cooked. Another very good option is the pulled pork sliders. Although it says chipotle mayo, it is not that hot. The fried rice is also very good. It has shrimp and pineapple in it. Your kids will also like eating here as well. They can choose one entree with two sides and the kids meals are very reasonably priced. The kids meals also come with a orange carved to look like a bear. Our service has always been very good as well. Although there are always tables open when we eat (usually around 5:30), I always make a reservation on Opentable just to be sure.

It's kind of weird but I was having lunch a couple of weeks ago and the restaurant side had the HVAC fans running with no heat. We tried moving but there was a constant breeze the whole meal. The food even got cold as soon as they brought it out. The waitress was nice but said there was nothing they could do about it. Kinda ruined the whole experience.

I'm so sorry a manager did not check on your experience during your meal. If one had we could have properly addressed the heating issue that was occurring and corrected it for you.

I sincerely hope you will return to the restaurant - please call me directly to set up your next visit as I would like to personally apologize for your last experience as well as ensure your visit is flawless.

We came on Super Bowl Sunday for lunch. The restaurant was pretty empty then. On Sundays, happy hour is the entire day. During the week happy hour is generally 4-7 but there are other times/days for specials. Check the website. There are a large number of appetizers which are all half off and some drink specials. We were seated "outside", which is to say not in the bar or dining room but in the glassed-in enclosed area. 4 of us had 4 appetizers which was plenty. I especially liked the avocado egg rolls as well as the apple-cheese-fig flatbread. We also had the smoked cheese fondue and a crab roll. Neither of those latter two are to my taste but my daughter liked them a lot. She comes to Kona Grill regularly and said it can be extremely crowded during the week at happy hour times.

Thank so much for the kind words. Just an FYI, our happy hour times are Monday through Friday 3-7PM, Saturday 1-5PM and Sundays all day (holidays excluded). We also do a "reverse" happy hour the last couple of hours we are open each night.

We look forward to serving you again soon!
