    Kitschtastic with a view. Housemade salad dressings. Pro service with a casual vibe. There's better locally-sources restaurants in Kailua-Kona (Rapanui, for example), but there's only one Don's.

    Go to catch the sunset on a night that the hotel is having their can see the entertainment from Don's for a fraction of the cost.

    Get the Lava Tube for dessert! Kahlua, amaretto, coconut run and vanilla ice cream. Best milkshake ever!!!

    Rum and pineapple tastes better when there are hot girls at the pool. So, maybe better go elsewhere.

    Tip: Don't be in a hurry. The service is horrible, even by Hawaiian standards.

    Agree with earlier tips. Horrible service and the food wasn't much better.

    Been here twice but haven't eaten there yet. Is this place ever open for service?
