Fresh Local Ingredients

Chef Noah orders fresh and organic ingredients from local fishermen and farms including The Blue Dragon鈥檚 own organic farm in Kohala. All food items are created in house. A first for us this year and a wonderful acknowledgement of our commitment to employing healthy and healing practices for ourselves, each other, and the land, especially by supporting local, fresh food from our farm and island. Our culinary team consistently produces vegetarian specials and are always willing and able to make adjustments to standard menu items to cater to both vegetarians and vegans. Come and try our ever popular Up-Beet Salad or enjoy one of our popular vegetarian specials like Spinach & Strawberry Salad with Kekela Farms Baby Spinach, Kamuela Strawberries, Ahualoa Goat Cheese & Toasted Almonds, Tossed in a Strawberry Champagne Vinaigrette, Tempura Tri-color Kona Cauliflower with Sesame Soy Aioli or Curry Kabocha Pumpkin Samosas with Tomato Chutney.

We have a state of the art sound system run by a professional technician. Choose from an extensive list of artists and dance the night away on our roomy dance floor. We feature live music nightly (when we are open for dinner Thursdays through Sundays) and offer the best talent and a wide array of musical styles. If the music moves you, get up and dance right under the stars as our dining area has no roof! View our events section to see what's playing tonight or this week.

The Blue Dragon was the best spot for our wedding!!!!!! We had the best organic and locally supported food from their farm. The space was perfect for my family and we still had space for a photo area for activites that our guest could participate with. They recently added a ice cream machine which was a big hit since it was a hot hot harvest moon night. Their mister machine was a big hit (It reminded us of a Tropical version of a fog machine) for our wedding. If you're smart save your money from the high rates at mainstream hotels and SUPPORT LOCAL. This is Hawaii not the Mainland!!!!!
