There are many other close by restaurants that do better than this. Look for Splashers, much better.

This place charges high-end restaurant prices for low-end chain restaurant meals. Very expensive for what you get. Mediocre food. Fish was quite boring and not cooked properly. Sides were mushy. Staff were friendly but not the type of service you would expect for that price.

Nice decor but food is overpriced. Downtown location sucks people in. Advertise 2-9 happy hour but have 10 seats that qualify

Arrived in time for Happy Hour but the prices did not seem to reflect that. We were seated at a table overlooking the water and enjoyed people watching there. Very good Moscow Mule, but not so much with the brandy Manhatten. Split a calamari appetizer and that was just okay, then each of us had the seafood pasta platter. The... More

Went here for lunch with some friends a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to try it as I had heard good things about it. Two of us tried the trio - shrimp, crab cake and spear fish which was quite expensive for a lunch entre. Unfortunately , all of the items on the trio were over cooked. The exception... More

My wife and I had the pleasure at eating at this restaurant several times on our visit to the big island. We had the opportunity to have breakfast and dinner. For breakfast, the corned beef and hash brown skillet and fresh catch benedict were both plentiful and flavorful. For appetizers, the calamari, clam chowder and house salad were great starters....

The food was just fine. The shrimp trio was ok. The portions were small and the prices high. Our service was really good, and the location stellar.

We were there with a party of 14 (4 under the age of 4), so it was a little hectic for the servers. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make sure all of our requests were met. One person in the group has a dietary restriction, but they were able to accommodate her. The... More
