Great staff! Great place to watch the game or just watch the ocean! Very comfortable seating and free WI-FI is a nice touch!

No better place to feel Hawaii than here. The food is spectacular - huge amounts of choices- many gf options- their ahi appetizer is THE best anywhere. Ditto pulled pork ( Kalua pork). Ditto everything else on their menu. Delicious tropical drinks - full bar. Sitting almost on top of the ocean - w balmy tropical breezes washing over you.... More

We stayed at the Royal Kona and this is part of their resort. This open air bar/restaurant has the best area to relax in the bar, have great drinks, and watch the Sunset every night. They have a great staff, Happy Hour from 4-6 pm on weeknights, and feeling the ocean breeze and watching Sunset from here is amazing. They... More

My husband and I stayed at the Royal Kona hotel New Year's week. On our pool days we ordered at the bar and ate poolside. Happy Hour is from 4 to 6 with reasonably priced Mai tais and Pina Coladas among other drinks. Certain appetizers and meals are also slightly reduced in price. The salads (Caesar and Thai) were fresh... More

This restaurant was close to our hotel (Royal Kona) and had very good and reasonable breakfast. The cinnamon rolls are fantastic. Ocean views and people watching are great!

We've been coming here for happy hour mai tais for years. The drinks and the view are great. Service however is almost always terrible. The food has always been good but pricey. Comfortable chairs, great for watching the sunset. Music on Thurs, sat and sunday around 5.

This restaurant is part of the Royal Kona. The prices are a bit high, even for Hawaii I think, and depending on how busy they are it can be slow. The food is decent, but I would not say outstanding for the price. Portions are reasonable. We had the prime rib, but were not impressed. The breakfast buffet was ok,... More

Our group of 4 went to Don's for a quick drink after golf and ended up staying into the evening for dinner. We had a great table on the seawall and the view of the bay was fantastic. The waitstaff was very friendly and the food was great. We'll come back during next year's trip to Hawaii!

Had the Hawaiian Dip and it was awesome. Service was great and so was the entertainment. Don would be proud that after all these years they are still doing it right
