About Us

Magics is dynamic, vibrant, and community-oriented. Walking into the restaurant is like being transported into the ocean itself, beautiful and invigorating, with a priceless view. We’re more than just a restaurant, our passion for our island, fresh flavorful food, and craft drinks, coupled with strong community ties and our relationships with our farmers, fishermen, and producers all combine at Magics.

Having called the Big Island home since March 1997, Mattson purchased the future location of Magics Beach Grill in 2017 to create an energizing gathering place for the North Kona community. Mattson has decades of experience in the restaurant and beverage industry, including serving as the former President and CEO of Kona Brewing Company. He believes personal relationships are the foundation of any great establishment. “When someone comes to Magics, whether they’re local or visiting, we want them to feel part of our ohana and develop a connection to the culture,” Mattson says. Those personal relationships extend to the local island purveyors who provide the foundation of Magics’ flavorful and vibrant menu that showcases Hawaii’s incredible bounty.  Mattson lives full-time in North Kona, and he loves to travel and spending time with his sons Thane and Lincoln.
