This is a must for sunset watching! We sat in January and watched whales spouting in the distance in the foreground of Lanai and Molokai. A truly memorable night. The prices are steep but discounts are given for happy hour. They have live music, but the singer was terribly out of tune and was amplified throughout the place. We tried... More

Could not get a reservation earlier than 8:45 so we went to watch the sunset on the terrace. Great appetizers and drinks.

This has the best views and very decent drink prices. Pupu selection is much better at The Sea House and you can start it up at 2:00 there, but for view , service and decent drink prices, Merrimans is it. Get there early.

This is a beautiful restaurant in a stunning location overlooking the water. We were able to push our reservation due to a late flight easily. Once we got there we were seated at a beautiful water view table (although it was dark). Our meals were wonderful, although I would say the cost was high - even for Hawaii. They absolutely... More

I would wait for the sun to be shining, since their beautiful patio will not be able to be used if not. It's definitely the main feature of the restaurant. This time I thought the fish was overcooked, but I was starving and didn't want to complain. I ate half of it. The other meals looked like they were cooked... More

My wife and I went here to celebrate my birthday and were not disappointed. Although the meal is on the pricey side, the chow fun and the prime ribeye were excellent and the views at sunset were sensational. Always keep and eye on the horizon and you can be treated to a whale watching show as well.

This is a Wow spot to watch the sunset. The outside patio is on a point looking west. Fantastic views. Warning...this is not a cheap happy hour spot. You will pay for the Wow experience. We had a couple of drinks along with the beef sliders and the lobster/avocado tomato salad from the happy hour menu. The sliders were good/very... More

We enjoyed potent & pricey drinks and casual music on the oceanside deck before dinner. Then a oceanside table at sunset. Service was prompt, efficient, and courteous. Food was delicious, yet pricey. Would definitely visit again. Highly recommend.
