    This is a true gem on a beautiful peninsula. Love the atmosphere and the food. Monchung, ribeye, lobster salad are excellent. Mai Tai wins every award. Only the beer sucks.

    Marisa may trick you into ordering non Happy Hour drinks. I was eyeing the $5 well drinks & asked for something bourbon based. She suggested the Molokai Mule, which ended up being 3x as much.

    Make sure you drop in for happy hour, 3:00pm - 4:49pm daily. Mai Tai's are $6 and may be the best Mai Tai you'll ever have. Bring a camera; the patio has one of the greatest ocean views in the world.
