Diner Reviews
  • "This is a great gem for having a buffet/clam bake on da beach. Have as much sashimi, lobster, prime rib, shrimp, and other wonderful delights during a Hawaiian sunset on the beach and under the stars."

  • "All staff were very good and friendly. The food was good except the lobster.It was very chewy and tough. We were very disappointed. Maybe it was over cooked,I just don't know. I know it it raised here locally. Last year we did the same Clam Bake, at the hotel and the lobster was so good. As we left the hotel and the valet went for our car ,one of the men ask what we were celebrating and we said, our 22 nd wedding anniversary. They got two flower leis and put them on us. One of the valets got out his ukelele and sang us a song. It was so Aloha and sweet , we know that for a fact since we live in Kona and my husband is the seventh generation in the Islands."

  • "Great outdoor location: sunset and water view. Waterlogged lobster and crab: quantity, not quality."

  • "The food - can you say all you can eat lobster - was terrific. Shrimp, oysters, clams, mussels, lobster, fish, and prime rib are all on the menu. Caesar salad, green salad, veggies (cooked perfectly), potatoes, and rice round it out. End with decadent desserts. The service is great too. Sitting at a table overlooking the beach and ocean isn't bad either. If you want a great alternative to a luau go to the clambake. Of course you can do both! I would go again in a heartbeat."

  • "The lobster was great, and the dungeness crab was good as was the mussels and clams- do not eat the oysters-bad-the salad was good, and the shrimp/prawns were good- but for two people to eat and have one bottle of wine and pay 335 dollars- hah= that is ridiculous....."

  • "The best local lobster I have had and it doesn't end there! Great beach location. Awesome sunset. Great service. But expensive...$100+ pp with drinks. Still worth it at least once just for the lobster."

  • "A wonderful tradition. Freshest sashimi anywhere.... All u can eat Maine lobster... Break the bank but worth every dime."

  • "Remarkable beachside setting, quality food selection (fresh seafood - lobster, crab, Ahi tuna, shrimp, oysters; prime rib; wide variety of desserts and salad options) , friendly service. Hard to beat the clambake for a memorable dining experience in Hawaii."

  • "Everything was outstanding. Set up right on the beach with white tableclothes....the ambiance doesn't get any better than that. The music is never too loud...some couple get to slow dance, very romantic. Only complaint is about the price. A couple with a single glass of wine each runs over $100 per person , then a 30% gratuity is automatically added to the check. Open table needs to print more information regarding this part. Otherwise a great way to celebrate a 44th anniversary !"
