The Reuben Bites and tater tots are the bomb! Poolside service too. My son enjoyed the burger. I had the lamb sliders which were okay, not super great. We ate here three times, everyone was nice. (P.S. if you walk here and do takeout you save the room service fees to dine in your room.) They didn't give me my... More

If you want some great fish tacos, head here. Plus you can hang at the beach all day and have excellent food right behind you, excellent waves in front.

Loved the drinks and the service was fast and courteous. Great for a lite snack while at the pool. Visited many times while at the Marriott and will definately visit when we come back.

I love this place, but it's kinda pricey. There's a outdoor eating area that really great. The tropical drinks are generous and the food is good. Great ambiance.

Convenient little spot if you're coming off beach and looking for a bite or drinks. For a small snack, try the couscous salad, fish tacos were delicious, great service from Kurt & Katie

Stick with beer and wine if you want a buzz as the frosted cocktails will not work, seriously suspect something is up as normally cannot do five drinks and feel nothing.

Food is okay if you are sitting by the pool. BLT wraps are good. Mai Tais are weak. Service is quick and like everywhere here, very friendly.

For a lite bite and great cocktails, come here. Get the amped up mai tai called the Tai Chi (it's a mai tai with 151).

Frankly, one of the things we love about staying at the Marriott Beach Club Resort is that it is a self-contained property, along with being spectacularly situated on Kalapaki Beach. We wanted a quick lunch, weren't looking for gourmet food, and the Kalapaki Grill fit the bill. It's near the beach, so you have a lovely view. It's also next... More
