Great food and atmosphere but a little too pricey compared to the other pricey restaurants- we have been to most of them. Lots of bugs also flying around- they can’t help that because we were outdoors - but bothered us a bit

Definitely a place you should try while you are on the island. The view was one of a kind, along with the food and services. They had a musician playing great music as well. Everything was perfect.

This is one of the best places to eat on the island. The atmosphere is amazing. Tiki touches, sunsets and live music all while eating a 5 star meal.

Description
The AAA Four Diamond award-winning Brown's Beach House is the place for the quintessential island fine dining experience located just steps from shore. Innovative, Big Island inspired cuisine is drawn from simple, pure flavors from locally grown, sustainable agriculture and seafood. Products using the diverse variety of fresh seafood from our island waters redefining the continuing evolution of Pacific Rim, Hawaii Regional, and most recently Big Island Cuisine. Exceptional nightly Hawaiian entertainment by resident soloists and romantic shoreline sunsets at a hand's distance blend naturally with the outdoor open-air seating for a memorable evening under the stars.
