Kawaihae Seafood Bar & Grill. Upstairs in a structure that dates from the 1850s, this seafood bar has been a hot spot since it opened in 2003, serving up a dynamite and well-priced bar menu with tasty pupu (appetizers), and an always expanding dinner menu that includes at least four fresh-fish specials daily. There's fare for landlubbers, too, including boneless braised short ribs, rib-eye steak, specialty pizza, and lots of salad options. Don't miss
the escargot, oysters Rockefeller, and ginger steamed clams. At lunch, the menu ranges from sandwiches and burgers to sashimi and poke. Happy hour runs daily from 3 to 6 pm, and again from 10:30 pm until close (12 am). If you've got the late-night munchies, this is a great spot—food is served until 11. 61-3642 Kawaihae Harbor, Hwy. 270, Kawaihae, HI, 96743. 808/880–9393. www.seafoodbargrill.com.
