Three Big Island restaurants are getting some internet notoriety.

Open Table, a provider of real-time online restaurant reservations that features diner-submitted reviews, has announced their 2012 Diner’s Choice Award winners for the top 100 restaurants for outdoor dining.

16 restaurants from Hawaii made the list, three of which are located on the Big Island.

Blue Dragon restaurant, Brown’s Beach House at the Fairmont Orchid, and Sam Choy’s Kai Lani were selected by Open Table’s users as top picks for al fresco dining.

According to Open Table, the results were compiled from nearly 5 million reviews submitted between May 1st 2011, and April 30th 2012. Diners rated more than 15,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.


Nine restaurants on Maui, two on Oahu and two on Kauai also made the top 100.
