This place used to be good....oops, thats when it was sloppy joes. The food was bad and the service was worse. I would stay clear of this place. If the staff is unhappy you won't be happy.

The sign remains but Da Big Kahuna is no longer available. I peeked through the glass window and door and it appears to be closed or being renovated.

This restaurant had horrible food!! We went there for lunch, bad food, slow rude waitress. Sat at the bar first for a special drink with the glass included but they didn't have the glasses.

Took an hour to get served, the place is dirty, it was our worst nightmare. Nice location on the strip, lots of ocean views, but I would not recommend. Go one flight down to the Atlantic Surf Club for a decent experience.

We stopped in for lunch from our trip to the beach. Katie was our server and she was very sweet, prompt and made good drinks. The hostess (or the girl that sat us) was Dawn. She was like death warmed over. I think she was...More
