Diner Reviews
  • "This became our favorite place to go during our vacation. The views were spectacular, the ambiance was fantastic and the prices were very reasonable. Would highly recommend this place! "

  • "So pleased to return to this classic restaurant overlooking Kailua Bay. It brings back fond memories of special visits 30 plus years ago. The soaring 'tiki" architecture still has an authentic appeal. Entree portions were generous, our swordfish was delicious and the cheerful wait staff were attentive and friendly. We stayed chatting long after dinner, they made us feel so at home."

  • "An ocean front gem. Often overlooked in Kailua Kona. It should not be missed."

  • "Everything about Don the Beachcomber is 70s. The food is adequate - nothing special - and cooked well. The reason we go there is to take visitors from the mainland for a nice dinner so they can enjoy the sunset and the beautiful view and the open-air dining. It's very pleasant. That is all."

  • "We were extremely disappointed in our sunset meal. The tropical Drinks were harsh, the crab cakes were fishy, the Entrees were tired. The view was awesome and the Service was attentive. Not going back."

  • "The food was not special. The service was HORRIBLE!! The waitress was terrible and badly needs training. No manager was available."

  • "The view from the tables on the outer edge of the restaurant is fabulous. We had a head on view of the waves crashing against the boulders,refectory illuminated by the flaming tiki torches. We also had an interesting view of the Celebrity Century cruise ship a chord in the bay, which was visiting Kona that day. We made a reservation for 5:30, which is pretty much when you have to arrive to get the great tables (there are about 8 of them). The food varied from pretty good (a special appetizer with crabcake, ahi, ginger, shrimp) to blah (an extremely fatty, gristle-laden prime rib with no flavor). The Mai Tai was fine, but had a minty aftertaste, which I'd grade at an A-."

  • "Very nice view of the Kona bay and seafront but the food was somewhat disappointing, the Hawaiian sampler was nothing special and other dishes were a little bland if not greasy. Not bad, but nothing to remember either... A much better option a little further is Fish Hopper"

  • "We had a wonderful dinner. The view was fantastic and our friend enjoyed her birthday as one of her most memorable."
