We have enjoyed this place a couple of times while vacationing in Hawaii. It is a bit of a drive from the hotel district, but it's worth it. No fancy upscale stuffiness here. No parade of fashion. Just tasty menu options, creative drinks or just the basics. PLUS ...if you pick the right night, some excellent music and dancing if... More

The Blue Dragoon in Kawaihae on the Big Island is one of our favorites. Sorry to report they are closed at this time (2/10/17) and have been since late 2016. .According to their Facebook post on 11/23/16 “The Blue Dragon is still undergoing repairs and we’re aiming to open our doors again in early 2017” And on 2/4/17 “The Blue...

Again the food here does not disappoint. Dragon wonton soup and spring rolls with green tea. I am always excited about eating here as the Thai and khmer food is great. Next time I am having the z dragon bowl.

I have been to this restaurant 3 times already and I must say it's one of my favourites. I ordered the tacos and they were great! The live music really set the mood and me and my wife got up to dance. Very good service and I love the outdoor setting so you can see the stars. Hawaii is one... More

This wonderful place is a local's favorite. Dance under the stars while enjoying good food and good company. Quality entertainment, delicious, moderately priced food, and island breezes under the stars...what more could you wish?

Easy to make reservations online. On their website you can see their entertainment schedule. We requested seats close to dance floor, but next time we requested table a little further back (that way people aren't dancing close to your table). Food was great. People of all ages up dancing 2- 92yrs. A fun evening.

The Blue Dragon is one of the few restaurants on the Kohala Coast of the island of Hawaii that actually serves good food at a reasonable price to quality. They take the food seriously and it comes first, with fresh, quality ingredients. The menu could be revised a bit to offer a broader range of choices for different palettes. The... More

The food was excellent as was the service. We listened to John Keawe play his fantastic Hawaiian slack key guitar as his lovely wife, Hope, did the hula....looking above (no ceiling there) at the stars was amazing. I hope they will reopen soon...we want to go back asap.

This restaurant was a hoot. The food was fine though not spectacular but the music and dancing and the whole vibe was fun for my whole family. Loved the specialty cocktails

We ate here for dinner and found the food and drinks to be okay. What we really enjoyed was the live entertainment and festive atmosphere. It was great to see all ages - 5 - 75 - dancing under the stairs to live music.
