Revenue is expected to come in between $24.1 million to $24.2 million in the quarter, an increase of $500,000 on the high end, Kona Grill said.

Same-store sales are now pegged at increasing 9% vs. a previous view for growth of 6%.

"Our restaurants continue to gain market share as evidenced by our strong same-store sales," said Michael Nahkunst, the company's interim president and CEO, in a statement. "Our revised outlook for stronger earnings in the third quarter firmly supports our forecast of achieving profitability for the year."

The stock was last quoted at $6.10, up 16%, with volume of less than 5,000, according to Based on Monday's regular session close at $5.26, the shares were already up more than 50% in the past year.
