This place is in the same location as the Seafood Bar restaurant. They are both equally delicious. Prices were typical for mid range island food. I ordered a fresh fish dinner at each location, it was cooked perfectly and full of flavor.

This restaurant is fabulous! We happened to be there for dinner on a Saturday when it's Happy Hour all evening. On the Happy Hour menu the grilled ahi tacos - two for $10, were wonderful - perfectly cooked and delicious. Cocktails were $6. The grilled brussel sprout salad was a very pleasant surprise with bacon, dried figs, mushrooms and a... More

We enjoyed the Plantation Grill. The Fish and Lobster Cake were fabulous. The staff does a great job and the setting is very comfortable. The night we were there they had live Hawaiian music which was very relaxing I would highly recommend it and when back in the area we will return

We went for late night light meal. Fish tacos were best we have had anywhere. One taco was broiled and one batter fried. The key element was the "dressing" on the greens. Waitress was very pleasant and answered our questions and knew quite a bit about other restaurants on the north end of the big island.

We came here to meet some friends for dinner. Although this has been on our list for years, we never really got out this way (it is off the beaten-track for many visitors to the Island). We found it to be charming and delicious. Our waiter, Nathan, was both attentive and low-key. His recommendations were good ones and he left... More

We very satisfied we were greeted and seated very quickly. The menu had a good variety of choices. I had the mahi-mahi special. Also had the brussels sprout appetizer. My husband had the Matka spelling might not be correct. Generous portions nice presentation. Friendly staff.

Adorable old historic house, thoughtfully renovated. Excellent, professional NYC caliber waiter. Beautifully displayed salads and entrees that tasted equally delicious. Could have been too heavy but was just right. Incredible deserts made on premises. Can't go wrong here.

Great service, great atmosphere and wonderful food. Highly recommend the ribs and mahi. We come back every year. Recommend making reservations and get a porch seat if possible.

This grill was fantastic. We had reservations early and by the time we were leaving, there were people waiting to be seated, so I would recommend reservations if you go during peak dinner hours. We had a fun waiter, who made dinner all the more enjoyable.

Stumbled on this tiny little restaurant by accident and had one of the best meals ever. We were there with 3 other couples, everyone's food was fabulous, the brisket was the best, and if you get the chance, order a Mai Tai, by far one of the best Mai Tai's in the world!
