Fodor's Review

Amid the sea of expensive resort restaurants on the Kohala Coast, this is an affordable alternative, a best-kept secret in the Waikoloa Beach Resort area. Its location on the 14th tee near the Marriott offers casual, fine dining with a menu that's a throwback to Hawaii's retro steak houses of the 1960s. Decor is simple, and so is the concept. Legendary restaurateur Dickie Furtado boasts many signature dishes, highlighted by the delicious calamari steak cooked with lemon butter and capers in a delicate panko crust. (Don't miss it; it's probably the best calamari you'll ever eat.) Generous-size steaks include the kiawe-grilled rib eye and the giant 14-oz. porterhouse. No watered-down cocktails here—the restaurant offers an excellent happy hour with free pupus, while the well-stocked salad bar features more than 30 items.
