We had dinner here on November 7 while visiting the area. The view was nice, service ok, but the food was a bit disappointing given the price. Bread bowl chowder for $18 was ok with a lot of pieces of clams. I had blackened swordfish...More

Came here for a relaxed dinner and drinks. Drinks were at the upper end of the price scale. Food was a bit higher priced than the location in Kailu-Kona, and a much different menu. Clam Chowder was excellent as always, and the meals were presented...More
