For a restaurant that doesn't take reservations you would think getting there at 5:15pm would assure a chance at a table, but we were told the wait would be two hours even though we saw plenty of tables. Nothing is that good to wait that...More

This restaurant is out doors. Although some table are under a roof, some are literally sitting in the sand on the beach! Great atmosphere and service. Food was good and reasonable for Hawaii.

Awesome Food, Awesome Service. This was our 3rd lunch there. The views of the bay and ocean were outstanding. Saw a turtle come right up on the beach in front of the tables. We would highly recommend them!!

While an order of shake-em fries was large, the price wasn't a deal and the quality hardly worth it. Fish was also decent but not particularly great for the price. Staff was pleasant and quick and seemed to work well as a team.

This is an amazing place to eat and watch the sunset unfold before your eyes over the ocean! Food is good, live music awesome with beach dance space.

Beautiful beachfront bar with very good food and happy hour. They have a reduced happy hour menu as well, the fish tacos and pork sliders were very good. Great place for a cold one and people watch.

A total zoo. But you can sit in the bar area without waiting in line. Best choice of a “beach bar” in the area. Food was good and beer was cold.

Would think a gift card could be used for either, but you might call them to be sure.
