We went to dinner here with some of our children and geandchildren and my daughters in laws. It is a very busy place, and even though we went between 3-5 Happy Hour it got very crowded after! We started out under cover in the bar...More

Lava Lava Beach Club was recommended by locals. We arrived just before sunset and it would have been an hour wail for a “dinner” table, but that wasn’t a problem because they had lots of open seating at the bar, high tabletops, and couches out...More

Ate a tasty dinner. Decent live band (drummer can sing but his time was a bit like the surf: wave-y). Nice family setting for a sunset dinner. Not your standard burger steak seafood place. Nice change of pace.

Location, location, location and this place has it! There is often live music and it's walking distance from the Hilton Waikoloa. The food is not consistent but pretty good.

Very good food, and the drinks were good overall. The view is spectacular, especially at sunset. The only real negative is that they won't/don't do reservations. Young children are not known for their patience!

We met some new friends for happy hour. We had sliders and chicken tenders and the happy hour Mai Tais were great. The location was on a beautiful sandy beach, they have games outside on the lawn..

We've been to the Lava Lava Beach Club 4 times over the years because that's where our family wanted to go. None of the food I found to be exceptional and it was easy to drop $400 for our experience per time. The atmosphere is...More

The location of Lava Lava creates the perfect island ambiance. The staff is always friendly. There is always island music for entertainment. The only place to get Mai Tais, and the ribs are the best on the island. Just be prepared to wait.
