Arrived for happy hour and was promptly greeted by Michael, who explained the food and drink options being offered. We sat at the bar and had a nice view of the ocean which is always welcome. We are ordered a Mai Tai and a Gin...More

We dressed up to enjoy sunset and music. My husband ordered a Ginger Mango Martini which was shockingly served in a small plastic cup. We were sitting at a table alongside the ocean, not at a pool bar. I ordered a virgin pina colada which...More

Hands down the best drinks I had on any of the Hawaiian islands. Every bartender was A+, and Misty guiding me to the mud pie was a great choice. Please please have more bars like this.

Very expensive for the quality and type of food available. Better to go across the street for better and less expensive food. Service is slow getting water and coffee.

We had a delicious and relaxing prime rib dinner here. The service was good and we didn't feel rushed. It was really nice to be right at the water's edge. I wish we had been here for sunset; that would have made it excellent.
