We came here for breakfast and the buffet was delicious. It's not as big as a Vegas buffet, but still a pretty good selection. There's an omelette station, which was tasty. My husband ordered off the a la carte menu and his corned beef hash meal was good. 4 stars for the food.

Service was excellent. Very attentive and friendly staff. 5 star service.

There were A LOT of birds and the restaurant did what they could to deter them, but they were very bold and several came up to the table to grab our food. They also didn't scare easily, as it took 2-3 times to shove them off our tables and chairs. 4 stars due to the birds.

It's basically outdoor dining, as half the tables were on the patio and due to the open concept, the other "inside" tables felt like they were outside. It's a nice restaurant with good food and nice family atmosphere. 5 stars for the location.

Overall, 4.5 stars for Kea Lani.

This breakfast is awesome! Their breakfast buffet is a little pricey, but it includes everything and the food is delicious! From the made-to-order omelettes, to the fresh fruit, to the pastries, to the french toast, and everything in between. Our server, Venus, was excellent! She was fast, attentive, and extremely friendly. We really appreciated her. Don't leave without trying the fresh squeezed pineapple juice!
