Great setting, better to take a beach able and enjoy the sand and pupus. Overpriced food and drinks, likely as there is no other option on the beach at 'A' Bay

This is a great spot for that sunset cocktail with sand in your feet and the cool ocean breezes accompany you and your friends. This is great for burgers and beer too. Did I mention the vacation huts check this out.

Wherever we stay on the Big island we always plan a day or night to go to Lava Lava. We love to go to Happy Hour after a day at the beach, great drink and food specials. We also love to listen to our favorite local musician Henry Kapono who has a live free concert on certain Friday's. Great place... More

My family and i went for lunch. I had the Fish and Chips, and they were great. Good local beers on tap and a really fun drink menu. The ocean views are spectacular.

Very good happy hour. Tons of people but a fun vibe. The lava flows (not on the HH menu) were very good. Pork sliders and potatoes good. Its a great place to really make you feel like you are in Hawaii. Service was friendly. Better than their Kauai location.

We made reservations for 7:30pm. Arrived 20 minutes early and were told we had to wait until 7:30 to come to the check-in desk. Came back at 7:30pm and had to wait 15 minutes to be seated. It took 30 minutes to get our drinks. While we waited for the server to return to take our food orders, another waiter... More

If you are looking for a good lunch by the ocean, this place is it. We had grilled fish burgers, that was the best we had on the island. Nice ocean right in front of the restaurant- you can even sit on the chairs on the beach if you prefer. Service could be better - our server had so many... More

We booked a reservation for a group of 10 on a saturday night at 8:30pm and were quite happy that they had availability. However, once all the group was there, they told us that the kitchen was closing at 9pm and once we ordered the waitress came back at least two times saying that some of the ordered meals were...

We went to happy hour then stayed for dinner. Great Mai Tais, appetizers, entrees and service. Did I mention we were on the beach and there was live music? This place is a 10 but get a reservation!

What could be better that watching the sun go down over A bay, toes in the sand, good drinks, good food, and family. The entertainment was excellent. And we shared on goodie jar dessert among the table. My grandson agreed that it lived up to its billing.
