Beginning August 1, renowned chef Bev Gannon will take over the SeaWatch Restaurant at the Wailea Golf Club’s Gold & Emerald Clubhouse.
The popular open-air eatery, known for its sweeping views of the Wailea Gold Course and offshore islands, will be Gannon’s second restaurant in Wailea Resort. She also leases the popular Joe’s Bar & Grill at the Wailea Tennis Club from the same owners of the Wailea Golf Club.
“Bev has a stellar reputation as one of the world’s most innovative and celebrated chefs, and we have enjoyed our long-time business relationship with her, Joe and their team,” said Anne Takabuki, president of Wailea Golf LLC. “SeaWatch has been a successful part of the Wailea Golf Club since it opened at our clubhouse in the mid-1990s, and we look forward to Bev taking it to an even higher level.”
Gannon also owns the famed Hali’imaile General Store restaurant and Celebrations Catering Upcountry, and consults with the Lanai City Grill restaurant and Hawaiian Airlines. She has authored several cookbooks and was nominated for the prestigious James Beard Award.
SeaWatch Restaurant will continue to serve breakfast, lunch, cocktails and dinner daily. Gannon is planning to expand the SeaWatch’s wedding and special event business. A grand re-opening is expected to take place in December.
