    The location can't be beat. Some tables have a much better view than others. Food was good, but not the best we had on our trip. It was the most expensive we had on our trip. The service was excellent. Nice kids menu and brought crayons and activity sheet.

    The views were exceptional and the service was pretty good also. The food wasn’t the best and is over priced. We canceled our second reservation on Valentine’s Day. We found that you spend more and sacrifice good food for views. I was hoping for a great place to eat right across the street. My wife had a steak which was okay but the sides were terrible. I think for 50$ the steak meal should have been great!

    We had a fantastic waiter! I never got his name but he’s originally from Mississippi. The one vegan dish on the menu didn’t appeal to me but he was really accommodating and worked me. I ended up having the roasted ulu (breadfruit) which was amazing with vegan aioli. The aioli was so creamy, I asked if it was really vegan. I also had the farmers salad which was also yummy. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his grilled chicken. Our waiter was attentive throughout and made sure all of our requests were met.

    We had a great time at Magics Beach Grill. The food & drinks were delicious & the scenery is magnificent! We recommend the Ono Fish & Chips and the Ono Fish Tacos. Servings are very generous. Magics is a great place to watch the sunset or just watch the ocean & the surfers! Highly recommended!

    Magics Beach Grill is a great place to go to. Parking is limited, but the view is outstanding. There were HUGE waves during our dinner this time and everyone was cheering each time a large wave came in (fun!). We had the fish and chips - it was good, a bit dry. On other occasions we have had the fish sandwiches, and the sandwiches were excellent. Service is always excellent here. Book early.

    What can I say Ive loved Magic's Beach Grill from the start. The amazing ocean view with cheerful and helpful Staff. We were there for Sunday Brunch, the Eggs Benedict with Ahi on a soft rice topped with an amazing lilikoi hollandaise was superb!! Enjoyed the bacon Bloody Mary with Tito's of course. My Friend had the Ono fish sandwich and loved it.

    Ahi poke nachos were the BEST I’ve ever had, highly recommend getting an extra scoop of the poke on top. Brussels and fish and chips were great too. We loved the spicy mango margaritas. You can’t beat the view and vibe.

    One of my favorite restaurants in Kona. Oceanfront next to Magic’s Beach, friendly locals, good service, good food. They treat staff so well that they stay for months and years. Try the fish and chips or anything with ulu (breadfruit).
