We stayed here for one night in a quaintly decorated room, while we were transferred to Maine for a year. What we will always remember - and what we went back for on many occasions - was the lobster! Make this a stop on your way from Bangor to Bar Harbor - or back.
This is a new business in the shopping center, which we tried on our last trip. Be sure to sample many flavors before deciding, but it will be hard to choose, anyway! They have both fat free and sugar free products that you cannot tell that you are missing anything. The gelato and sorbet are not whipped full of air, so each serving is very rich and filling. It is right next to Puka Dogs, so be sure to come here for dessert!
Pizza is great - and if you have kids, they give each of them a ball of dough to play with while you are waiting for your meal. The wait seems long, but the pizza is worth it. For the adults and older kids, check out all of the personalized license plates from all over the nation.
We ate here for lunch and enjoyed the paniolo (cowboy) cuisine. The steak was very good, as was the fish and chips. We ate outside and enjoyed the decor both inside and out.
Nice view of the golf course, but the food is the reason to come. They also serve lunch and dinner, but we like the breakfasts the best. Don't miss the Kalua pork, scrambled eggs and rice - or the French toast, Sammi style.
The pancakes are heavenly and worth any wait there might be. The servings are large. We also like the veggie omelette with fresh local produce. Prices are reasonable.
Favorite stop for locals - and conveniently located at the start/end of the drive up to Waimea Canyon. The fried shrimp was fresh and well prepared. It came very quickly after we ordered. It was reasonably priced for a Hawaiiam meal.
We go here for lunch and enjoy both the food and the view. While sitting on the patio, you overlook Kalapaki Beach, which also fronts the Marriott. The food is wonderful - especially the fish and chips. My teenage sons rank their mahi mahi fish and chips the best they have had anywhere - and they are very picky!
The restaurant is now called Kalypso, but it still serves the same delicious food. We especially enjoy the fish and chips, and the fish sandwich. We stop here on our way back from Ke'e beach.
I shop here every year when we visit to buy fabrics to sew our alohawear for next year's visit. Even my husband and sons come in with me to choose their fabric - and they do not like shopping. I don't quilt, but with all of the wonderful quilts displayed, not to mention all of the beautiful fabrics, I may get inspired. Although we only come once or twice a year, the staff remembers us and makes us feel like ohana!
