You absolutely cannot miss out on the:
Lobster and Crab Stack
To kick off your meal with seafood goodness in every last bite, go with the Lobster and Crab Stack. This dish begins with Kona cold lobster prepared on the grill. Then, they create their Dungeness crab salad plus avocado mousse. After that, each item gets layered over the next to create a mile-high tower of amazingly bright flavors.
For a truly romantic dinner for two, get the 16-ounce Chateaubriand. This dish begins well before you arrive as the chefs put the Big Island bone marrow into the oven to slow roast to perfection. When you order it, then pull out a huge 16-ounce piece, and then put it on the plate along with Brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes.
For an upscale take on a true classic, treat yourself to the Jidori Chicken. To create this dish, the chef puts a flavorful rub on the chicken and then tosses it into the smoker. As that cooks, they prepare the Kekela sunchoke and spicy Kamuela green beans. As soon as that’s plated up, pan jus goes over it all to bring the flavors together.
Aim to save room in your belly for dessert – or risk missing out big time. From the Coconut Tarte to Strawberry Shortcake, their sweet treats promise to exceed your wildest dreams. Need to keep wheat out of the equation? Just order up the German Chocolate Cake for a flavor experience to remember.
