Last year we found Kaleo's Bar & Grill and made it a must to go back this year. This time my wife and I had our teenage granddaughter and two of her university roommates. Two girls were vegetarian and one was vegan. Our waiter was most accommodating in making sure the girls got their food exactly the way they wanted.... More

We went there for an early dinner on Sunday as it was pretty much the only place open. I had the blackened Maui blt though they had to substitute ahi for the mahi as that was all they had. It was quite good. My SO had a different fish dish, also with ahi, also very good. Neither of us was... More

Seems every hang in BI leads me somehow to Pahoa, the gentrified hippie-town now burgeoning with "culture". What this equates to, with few exceptions, is overblown prices in mediocre eateries. Kaleo's serves up a prime example.... Arrived for an early supper, but was presented a lunch menu by a waiter in a hurry to get us going. I learned why,... More

We had an excellent dinner. There's plenty of parking out front and also seating in the dining room. The menu is broad, and ranges from a $12 cheeseburger to a $30 steak. I got the chicken teriyaki, it was fantastic.

We dined here one Saturday evening. The service was very friendly, but we found the place over priced for the quality of food provided. I had a Thai curry and my girl friend a piece of fish, salad and brown rich, plus we had a beer each. With tip the meal cost 80 something dollars. Now, don't get me wrong,... More

What a great little place in the heart of Pahoa! The lot attendant was our first welcome, and he was enthusiastic, happy, and herded the cars coming in with ease. Our server Kenny was wonderful - gracious, friendly, and very professional. The restaurant is gorgeous, and the food was SO GOOD. Huge portions, delicious offerings, and fresh catch literally right... More

My wife and I arrived at our rental house overlooking the Pacific, and headed into Pahoa 10 miles away for our first meal in Hawaii. What a great choice we made. Salads were all local produce, and the shrimp and calamari entrees were incredible. Our only "complaint" was the enormously serving portions, which resulted in a great beach lunch the... More

I really like the menu here, interesting fresh good tasting food. Our waiter couldn't have been more accommodating, friendly and efficient. When it's busy, it's a bit noisy, but we were on the porch, so better. They have their own parking, which is handy in Pahoa.

Pahoa is a small town but it has several of the best restaurants in the area. While unassuming in appearance, Kaleo's restaurant was recommended by our B&B host and was a great choice for us for dinner. The poke appetizer was filled with luscious chunks of ahi lightly covered with onions and soy sauce. We'd gladly order more. The Asian... More

Love treating myself to a night out at Kaleo's. The staff here is always friendly and the burgers are delicious. Recently I've been straying away from the beef to sample their tempura fish and fish sandwich and was not been disappointed!
