I had that problem as well. However, I talked it over with my mom and brother and they are still ok with Kona. DH is very happy that we are keeping it

Okay, I know everyone hates when favorites disappear and I'll certainly miss the tuna oscar myself, but is anyone else excited about the changes? Kona fell off our must-do list a couple trips ago, not because the food wasn't good but because the menu was very static and we'd kind of gotten in a rut ordering the same things (tuna oscar for me, shrimp & scallops for DH & the kids) every time we visited. Now I'm feeling like it needs to go back on the list to give some of the new items a chance... The new tuna dish sounds good, though maybe a little too similar to the one I liked at Narcoosees a few years back, DH loves lamb, and I know my kids will have a hard time deciding between the duck and the clams.

I wanted to try the ribeye that they removed. I have a reservation there for Oct 1st that I will probably keep because I also think that the new tuna dish sounds really good.

The fondue is still there. The only real changes to the dessert offerings is the no sugar added apple stack is gone and is replaced with a low sugar jasmine infused cheesecake. The Kona kone is now a Kona bowl.

Hello mom2of2! I know we "won't" find you at the Kona Cafe but the Kona cone is all my daughter has been talking about. What did they do to this childrens masterpiece?

Lol! Well the metal cone holders need to be replaced so until they get new ones they are shaping the cones like bowls. Its still comes with everything including the cotton candy

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

Here is the new tuna entree courtesy of Dismember Alice BlueBonnet. She is the one who sent in the pictures of the menus and entrees. I am just borrowing them since this subject came up today. Thank her when you see her!

The coconut almond chicken breast has a crust of coconut and almonds. I taste the almonds more than the coconut. I wasn't sure I would like it the first time I ordered it because I don't love coconut but it was delicious.
