My husband and I are big happy hour people. We enjoy sharing small plates etc. What are the best Happy Hours on the Kohala Coast?
Think about what you want from your "happy hour." Is it more abour snagging discount drinks and food or the ocean and sunset view? Me, I can snag stuff anywhere, but not hope for a green flash whilst watching the waves and birds in many places.
Consider your options accordingly.
Great point from Honu.
I’ve generally been disappointed in the types of food offerings at Happy Hours here, in terms of getting a form of dinner with mixed small plates. Usually it’s fatty, high carb snack food like fries or similar, which is OK for a snack with a drink, but you’d start to miss the nutrition if you ate that for dinner much. I’ve generally found the only value is for drinks, and only if you want basic beer wine and well liquor of course. Resort prices are steep for cocktails, and a discount is welcome, especially around sunset.
Pueo’s is different, as it’s more small plates of real food, but I did find the time I tried it that the dishes were not what I would have ordered there, and you have to sit at the bar, which may or may not be what suits you.
So all in all I would have low expectations of HH as dinner.
Sansei’s (not Sensei) is not a happy hour per se; it’s an Early Bird discount. If you can bear the line and the crowd and the rushed ordering, the discount on sushi dishes is substantial.
