Kona Inn Cafe Grill Restaurant Review

: Located in the heart of downtown Kailua-Kona, this eatery is one of the most reasonably priced open-air dining options in the neighborhood. Plan to arrive at least a half hour before dusk to enjoy the hard-to-beat sunset views. The food factors into its appeal as well: try the fried calamari, Caesar salad or Hawaiian chicken sandwich smothered with secret Hawaiian sauce before it's topped with pineapple and Swiss cheese. Kona mud pie makes a decadent finale.
