I had two small plates and a craft cocktail. Fresh fish, crispy pork, belly and a refreshing lighter "If You Like Pina Coladas". Friendly service and good food. Nice atmosphere but still laid back. Not too fancy. Would definitely eat there again.

We love the friendly atmosphere and service at KBG. Excellent buffet on weekends and all you can eat crab and pot roast every Friday and Saturday. A bar that overlooks Kuhio Beach on Waikiki.

We ate here a couple times - more out of convenience than anyting else, but the food was yummy and they accomodated our special orders with no problem. Service was very quick. Limited beverages, but it is essentially a pool bar. All of the wait staff and bartenders were great.

well, we ate here twice. Once for mid-afternoon snack and once for dinner. Be prepared to wait at least 40 minutes for food. We though the first time was an anomaly but sadly, no. How can it take 40 minutes to put together a pulled pork sandwich and fries? Same for tacos? We asked our server and received 'Oh, one... More

This review is rated 5 star for the care and concern the staff provided for my wife who is celiac. The wait staff brought out the head chef of Kuhio Beach Grill who explained all the gluten free dishes and provided my wife options to suit her needs. This was a seafood buffet and buffets are not to our liking... More

The Breakfast Buffet was OUTRADIOUSLY EXPENSE. Would not recommend this restaurant for breakfast. There are so many more options close by that are reasonable in price. The staff were very friendly and the food was good.

We visited for breakfast several times. Good selection of items to choose from including fresh fruit. It is busy I'm the morning but the line moves pretty fast. The area dinning doesn't open back up for dinner until 5. One night we went and ordered from a menu, which was good but on Saturday night there was a buffet. We... More

This place has been moved and renovated since our last visit. We were a little disappointed that it's no longer a full time buffet, but they still offer the buffet dinner on Fridays and Saturdays. Prime rib, salad bar, crab legs, various sides, delicious assortment of desserts, and views of Waikiki at sunset! Ask for Alexis. She's awesome and funny!

The food was average. We ate breakfast every morning here for the week. The omelet chef was amazing. However, 6 out of 7 days the wait staff was horrible. As one example... I was completely done with breakfast before they brought my drink. I tipped the chef and not the waitress most days.

Thank E R
