Roy's Waikoloa Bar & Grill. Overlooking the lake at the Kings' Shops is, granted, not an oceanfront setting, but if you're staying nearby and are looking for decent food, this place fits the bill. In the mood for a light meal? Choose from the enormous selection of great appetizers, paired with something from the extensive wine-by-the-glass list. The three-course meal is a good bet, as is the butterfish or Szechwan ribs, a melt-in-your mouth encounter. The menu
changes nightly and has a lot of specials, like ancho-chili-pepper seared sea scallops and grilled Hawaiian ono taco. Kings' Shops at Waikoloa Village, 250 Waikoloa Beach Dr., Kohala Coast, HI, 96738. 808/886–4321. www.roysrestaurant.com. No lunch.
