I had lunch here recently and thought the food and value were really very good. You order at the counter and can either take the food away or eat-in. There are about five tables in the place and you can get your food at the...More

Don't let the look of this place deter you. We thoroughly enjoyed the fish n' chips and fried shrimp combo. We went with the Ono, which we'd never tried before, and were pleasantly surprised by the unique flavor and meatiness. The batter was tasty and...More

It's clear this is a local favorite. There were quite a few phone orders while I was there, and some locals hanging around. They had a couple of large machines that they put hand-battered fish in and they came out the other side, all cooked!...More

We always go here when we stay on the Hilo side. Make sure to ask for the fish that is locally caught when you make your selections.

Good place for a quick lunch if you're in the area. I had fish and chips (Ono/wahoo). They usually have several different fish to choose from. 5 pieces was enough for 2 to share.

It's not a place to go for ambiance. A basic kitchen with two very busy fryolators turns out the best fish and chips I've ever had! They offer ahi (tuna), or ono (wahoo) or cod, my favorite is ono.

The fish was very nice, they let you choose from cod, ahi, maka maka, crap can't remember the others but they were actually tasty. And staff was friendly
