We wanted an informal setting to grab a bite before heading up to Buddha point to watch the sunset. It was nice to watch trainers working with the dolphins while we waited for our meal. But the food was bad. My son finished his hot dog but everyone else left a plate full of food. The waitress didn't even ask... More

Conveniently located. Had a calamari steak for lunch which was terrific...almost too much food. Had a side of thick onion rings as well. Food was hot and delicious.

Ate here for lunch a few times when we stayed at Hilton Waikoloa Village. Loved the appetizers and lunch specials especially the calamari, Kobe and daily fish sandwiches. Definitely worth returning for the food. Service is nice as you can watch the Dolphins train while you dine.

The Lagoon Grill menu is a little pricey, but the entertainment makes it worth it. By day you can watch kids and adults play and swim with the dolphins at nearby Dolphin Quest. Or just gaze upon the large idyllic lagoon that is part of the Hilton Waikola Resort. By night there is often a guitarist to serenade as you... More

After the sticker shock of the cost of food in the village we found this place to have the best value. Drinks and sandwiches were good, service friendly and the location next to the dolphin pool priceless.

They have very good sandwiches, burgers, and large portions of fries or onion rings. Service was great, we were there for an early lunch, can overlook the Dolphin Quest or out to the ocean, reasonable as well.

Another great experience here! Great food at a good price, and we had a blast watching the dolphins! View of the ocean as well, and it was a perfect place to spend a warm day.

The view from this location is of the ocean, lagoon and dolphins so great space to hang. The food is not fresh as listed. Got a "catch of the day" sandwich and the fish was cold. The 2nd attempt I waited over 15 minutes for my food where others who ordered after me got their orders before and mine should... More

We had dinner here at sunset right by the Pacific Ocean. How can you beat that!! Great setting.There was entertainment provided by a guitarist who was very good. His range of songs had wide appeal. Food was good.Portions huge! We could also watch the dolphins and their trainers by the pool.

Thank Carol W
