We had heard about this place having the coldest schooner beers on the island so we thought we would try it. Initial thoughts- good location with great views of the harbor marina. That's where the "good" ends. It's seat yourself so we grabbed the only empty table by the railing. We proceeded to sit for over 30 minutes while servers... More

Order the Poke and a Longboard Lager! This is where many locals go, especially the fisherman and boaters. The wait staff is great. If you go there for dinner, get ther early because they close at 7pm. It's a great place for lunch while you are getting supplies in Kailua Kona.

This is a great place to get a lunch and watch the boats in the nearby small harbor. The food and drinks will not disappoint.

We live in Kailua-Kona part of the year. We go to Harbor House often for a casual dinner and watch the boats come in and out of the harbor. NO, it is not an upscale place. NO they do not serve hard liquor. NO, they do not try to be everything to everyone. But, if you are looking for some... More

This restaurant is right on the marina, so there are lots of fishing and diving folks. It's a fun and noisy ambiance. The menu is not the best for vegetarians or vegans, but there are lots of tasty burgers and fried items. Lots of beer. One of the nice things about this place is that it is not very touristy,...

The beers are cold, served in schooners, and the open air views of the harbor are almost as nice as the friendly wait staff. Standard fish and burgers fare, but if you've just gotten done with a morning dive or a day of fishing, you won't find a happier place, more full of kindred spirits!

We like to stop here after diving or coming back from boat excursions. It's crowded but you can usually find a table. Cannot recommend the shashimu it had a fishy taste. The Fish n chips were good. Poke had large pieces but not much flavor. Okay but don't go out of your way.

Pretty much everything was not that great. The best dishes were kimchi tako and fish and chips. They claim "vegetarian choices" - these are between garden burger and garden burger. Our vegetarian became gloomy after looking at the menu and his disposition didn't improve after the food has arrived. The wait was also not that short, which is surprising considering... More

We never miss a chance to eat the fresh catch in a plate style or in a sandwich. (usually ahi or spear fish). They chill big glass schooners in a cooler so the local Kona Brewing Company beer served is really chilled and refreshing. The wait staff are super cute and effecient. The crowd is local and friendly. Plenty of... More
