The food here is basic lunch and bar style but is it ever good. Enjoy eating at this place. Across the road from the ocean but limited if any views and right on the main street.

My wife and I went here based upon recommendations from several locals. Typical sports bar/restaurant atmosphere and our waitress provided excellent service, but the food was less than satisfactory.

This was a great casual meeting place to catch up with my island relatives in Hilo! The food was good, the atmosphere welcoming...a get place to have a dinner where we could all visit and have a nice meal at the same time.

We had a great early dinner here. The service is outstanding. They greeted us when we walked in and left. The food was awesome too. The caesar salad was one of the best I've had anywhere. It was a little pricey for just a salad, but was worth it here.

Large, welcoming, friendly restaurant, with sports on big screens but not too loud or distracting for conversation. Service was great, food tasty, good draft beer selection, and the best onion rings I've ever tasted.

I like this place a lot. Everyone greets you when you show up and everyone says goodbye when you leave. They have an awesome beer selection and a very nice cocktail menu but what will make you come back again and again is the food. The food is incredible. What a great selection! This place could be a fine dining... More
