The prime beef and au jus were excellent. It was tender and juicy, and seasoned perfectly. The seafood bisque and mashed potatoes were also very appetizing.

I loved the tiny scallops and mushroom. The rest are just OK. The entrees selections on Sunday night are not the best.

This was my 4th experience here and I must say the staff are on point. Very friendly and helpful. The food was good and with the kama’aina discount it’s the best affordable Prime rib and crab leg buffet I’ve been to. I’ve tried others that were cheaper but with cheap service and poor quality food. Definitely will be back soon!

The food was absolutely horrible. They had a buffet of different types of food the shrimp was overcooked, the fried rice was not cooked enough, the quinoa salad was extremely salty, the prime rib was very very salty. Not worth the $50 per person for the buffet.

Food was decent. We got there at 8pm, but didnt know prime rib was taken away at 9pm. It was incinvenient to ask to hsve it served behind the kitchen andnhave them bring out prime rib. Also, food was tsken away even before 10pm but buffet was supposed to ve open till 10pm. It crrated a feeling of urgency to get food which didnt feel good.

It was very nice place to go. Our waiter was great even though it was busy and I overheard he just had a table of 10 that was seated, he still was very attentive to my table. The food was good was kept in good supply.

We are regulars here and knew it would be packed for Valentine’s Day, so I made a reservation. We got seated right at our reserve time, and got a seat not too far from the food area. Crab was fresh & hot. We enjoyed the upgraded menu for Valentine’s Day. The hot entrees were all awesome! The deserts they had laid out for Valentine’s Day above and beyond what they usually have. My kids and I really enjoyed the macarons and cake pops. Our waitress was amazing, very attentive, refilled our drinks and took away empty plates frequently. We recommend this place to friends and family all the time and will definitely be back soon! Nothing but good things to say about kuhio beach grill!

Valentine’s Day was a special price. The menu looked like their weekend menu but with chocolate strawberries. The parking lot was full so we had to valet and it was $15. There is no kamaaina discount on special occasions. The food was so so and the dessert section was good. I won’t be going back.

お料理はおいしかったです。カニはあたたかく、デザートは凝っていて、フルーツやチーズも豊富です。飲み物は別料金です。

ただし、女性ウェイターさんの態度が最悪。
愛想はないし言い方もキツい、チップの払い方にまごついたら舌打ちされました。正直チップ払いたくなかったです。

海の目の前のレストランなのに、海が見える席はほんの数席(ハイチェアの2人席)のみです。家族連れにはおすすめしません。
次も使いたいとは思いません。価格の価値はないと考えます。

Very good restaurant to eat on Saturday evening, especially with children. The food was excellent, with the crab legs, prime rib, and specialty appetizer. If you are looking for a place to eat good, Kuhio Beach Grill is the spot.

Very overpriced hotel buffet $43 pp. We went for the vegan Asian items and had a good choice but nothing outstanding. Had a cocktail which was rather disgusting: booze, sweet juice and probably Sprite. I couldn't finish it. For a Hawaiian upscale hotel, this was pretty disappointing. However, the staff was very friendly and efficient. It was also almost deserted at 7 pm. They did not decorate any differently from the breakfast service so it was pretty blah ambience.

店内はキレイでサンセットもみられ、最初に案内してくださった方は感じもよかった。しかし、料理には小さな虫が何匹か。入り口がオープンなので入ってきてしまうのでしょうか、仕方ないのかもしれませんがかなり残念。
店内は客も少なく、雑誌や口コミに書いてあったハッピーアワーで半額、というのはなく、定価なら品数など考えると割高と感じました。
料理は美味しかったです。

I don't understand why this place isn't more busy. They were able to take our party of 10 with only a couple of hours notice on a Sunday night! Service was amazing and the laid back atmosphere is perfect for our family. The poke station was excellent, the crab kept coming, and the prime rib was juicy, tender, and delicious. The only thing I found unusual was that there was no chicken dish on the buffet. They have raised their prices a little since we started going, but the kamaaina discount takes the starting out of the cost. We'll definitely be back!

木曜18時過ぎに伺いましたが、料理の品数は少なく、ソフトドリンクや紅茶も含めドリンクは全て別料金で割高に感じました…。
料理は食べられているというわけではなく、もともとの種類が少なかったです。他の曜日や時間だと違うのでしょうか…。
ちなみに、デザートはめちゃめちゃ充実していました。
料理の味も悪くなかったですが再訪はないと思います。
サービスが良かっただけに残念です。

We’ve been coming to the Waikiki Marriott for 20 years. Sometimes we go to KBG, sometimes we don’t. I’ve felt the quality decline the last couple of times we came, but this time was the worst. For almost $90 for 2 people, you expect a few more food choices on the buffet. There was a so-so prime rib (mine cooked at home last weekend was far better), and crab legs, and a few varieties of poke. One vegetable selection, a couple of poorly prepared meats, and a meager salad bar. The course with the greatest variety was dessert. That said, they used to have fantastic bread pudding. This time it was mediocre at the very best. We’ve been to KBG for our last time. Given the quality of the food vs the price, it’s better to go have a Whopper at BK across the street.

The food was very good, our server was very attentive. We happen to make it during Happy Hour and received 50% off of our meals. Had we paid full price, not worth $75 a person.
