We were excited to try this newer restaurant that replaced Merriman's Market. Nice renovation done, this was promising...We had a reservation, and when we walked up to the restaurant, the hostess asked where we wanted to sit. She said if we wanted outside, she would have to clean the table and it would take her 15 minutes...??? What?
So we went inside and waited too long for service. Our waiter finally took our order for drinks. I ordered the same drink that I had there one afternoon when we stopped after shopping. Let me tell you, that was NOT the same drink! This one was so watered down it tasted terrible. Not impressed.My husband ordered a second beer and he waited about 15 minutes for it. Our food was so, so. Edible but no way impressive. We then waited way too long for our waiter to come back and give us our bill. Service was horrible and the food was close to the same. Drinks were not good, although during the day they are great. Will not be returning... what a shame.

We caught a meal at this restaurant during our stay in Waikaloa and really liked it. It was adjacent to the Lava Man Tri so they were very busy but the staff put a lot of effort into making sure we had good service and food! We would go back!

We were split on how good the restaurant was. My calamari seems to have been cooked some time ago in that it was close to room temperature and rather tough. My daughter's fish dish was very good.

This place was a nice surprise. We took a chance and each of us loved our entrees. I had the meneure fish dish, the sauce was buttery and delicious, the fish quite tender. We got to eat outside (always nice on vacation) and listen to live music. Would definitely go back here!
