Had chicken burger and friends had cheeseburgers. Kid size was still large portion! Vegan friend had the nachos miso cheese?- didn’t love them and they swapped them out for fries. Both waffle sweet potato fries and regular fries great Would go back views and atmosphere were great.
We loved our visit to Friendly Waves! The food and service were excellent. We hope to come back again soon. EVERYTHING is gluten free except the buns and noodles. We both had margaritas, I had a Poke Bowl and my husband had a Dat Burger, and we were unable to finish everything due to very generous portions. Try it!! So good.
Food was delicious. Service was outstanding. Had to wait 15 minutes to be seated which was no big deal but they apologized a few times for it. Would come back next time I'm on the island.
0/10 do not recommend the wings. They were CAKED with seasoning to the point you couldn’t eat more than a few. We informed the server and he stated that “he will note that”. The chips for the nachos were stale and chicken on them was tough. The music and TV was so loud the server couldn’t even hear our order. As we were leaving the server came out and and stated they were going to “discount the wings”. Will never be coming back
Stumbled upon Friendly Waves while strolling through Koloa and am super glad I did. I honestly wasn't sure what "Friendly Waves" was even after seeing the sign and walked past it twice before saying to myself "wish there was a place to grab a beer around here" searched Google Maps and found out it was a full restaurant and bar upstairs! Maybe Friendly Waves Bar & Grill on the sign might catch more people... Anyway, up the stairs I found an open air oasis with a nice breeze, loads of TVs (six on each side of the bar alone), friendly service and solid food. There are happy hours daily (on both food & drink) and lots of options for the entire family. The main menu subsets are burgers, wings and nachos and each having a particular special on happy hour. The nacho special of the day was poke nachos and you could get them over either corn tortilla chips or root chips. While the prices aren't cheap, you are in Hawaii and the serving size was quite large. I opted for a half pound of wings, naked (no breading), with spicy orange sauce. The wings were cooked perfectly but the sauce was very thin / lacking and no spice to be found. Overall though, the wings themselves were great, I'll just opt for a different flavor next time. All in all I enjoyed this spot and look forward to returning as Koloa continues to expand with lots more retail and dining options nearby.
