    Ambiance was great, next to magic sand beach. The food was a little bland and our server was very “forgetful”. It was late so maybe he was tired but so were we and hungry!

    What a spectacular location and the food was very good. We had a special birthday celebration here and we truly enjoyed ourselves all around. We had many different appetizers and a caesar salad and then shared the ahi main course. All really very good! We actually came back another day to swim at Magics Beach too! Just sayin'

    Our server was great. The view from the patio was very nice! The food was so-so:we love brussel sprouts and have ordered them at many restaurants.. these were meh!! My garlic shrimp was so spicy I couldn’t identify the garlic and was unable to eat them just too spicy? My husbands fish taco were just ok. The Pinot noir wine had been chilled and was served ice cold… not ok! Disappointing experience!

    Magics is a great place to watch the sunset. We booked our reservation time accordingly but were not able to be seated since tables were not leaving. We were told the bar was full and were directed to 2 chairs facing the parking lot. So sad. Decided to walk to far end of parking lot to watch the sunset and of course when over our table was ready. We really enjoyed our server, Felicia. She was spot on with her recommendations - garlic fries ("dirty ulu") as appetizer were incredible. Potatoes melted in your mouth. My spouse wanted a burger and she suggested her favorite burger, the Incredible Fondue burger, which he swears was the best burger ever! She told us they prepare fresh ono daily so I had ono fish tacos which were very good. Good beer selection with local brewery options. Loved the Kona Brewery Kua Bay IPA.

    Our experience at Magics was, well, magic! The service was excellent, our view was absolutely divine, and the food was really delicious! I know it's weird to brag on brussel sprouts - they don't get much love - but these were super yummy!! We also really enjoyed the poke nachos. This is a must to enjoy around Kona!

    Magics Beach Grill's menu is a bit limited, but the food is excellent and the location is terrific. The Dirty Ulu appetizer is a must try. The service is good, but not particularly above average. It is surprising they do not have alternative gluten free breads for their sandwiches...

    Based on location it’s a must!!! The views from the deck are incredible. The food was good! The drinks are solid!! The staff are similar to the four seasons personnel. They are really on top on making sure the food and drinks are out with a minimum wait. RSVP early and asked for outside!!

    Had reservations for 7:15pm for 4 people and arrived promptly on time. Did not get a table until 7:45 and saw a couple of larger patrons seated before us even though they arrived later. At one point asked for water which did not come before we were seated. Waiter was great and personable but had ordered the mushroom pasta with fish. Fish didn't come with meal but came shortly after mentioning it to our server. Seemed slightly disorganized. Otherwise good food and location.

    In spite of having made a reservation we still waited for a table, and then waited even longer to be served. Eventually we moved to another table and at least we got service. Took maybe 25 minutes from sitting down to getting water. Food was good. The extremely slow service might have been to being short staffed. We were definitely disappointed with our night out.

    Lunch was very nice. There was a nice cool breeze blowing across the patio. The service was outstanding. I had the fish and chips. The fish was moist and tender. The french fries are very tasty. My father had the pork belly over rice. He liked it very much. Mom could not make it to lunch so we brought home the seared ahi sandwich. She enjoyed it very much. Magic's has been one our favorite restaurants and it continues to be.
