The coffee display was neat! The free shell lei was beautiful! The cosmetics girl was pushy. We picked out a lot of nice things in the shop for our relatives & were happy to find that they'd deliver it. But then they just left it sitting on the counter with the box open while checking out customers. Weeks later, at... More

Small premises and didnt have the range of goods as it did two years ago! Was sooooo disappointed! The staff were lovely and... More

My wife and I visited the famous hawaiian shop last year to purchase some genuine shirts and were certainly not disappointed. There were shirts of all shapes, sizes and colours and I believe - I bought most of them. We even had a chance to open some oysters and were lucky enough to open a pair of pink pearls, which...

What a great place to find beautiful Hawaiian treasures, sadly they have downsized, but the treasures are still there.

They have changed over they years. They used to give lots of samples and had lot of brands of candies and coffees and cookies, etc. and now seem to carry mostly their own brand. It is still an interesting place to go. They do make it plain they are not a free shuttle to the malls, but make stops on... More

They closed the big Hilo Hattie's store on Nimitz and moved into a very small store in the mall. Now they are just like all the other stores selling Hawaiian souvenirs. I was very disappointed. Their prices have gone up and you need to check what you want to buy due to the cheap Aloha shirts they have. They have... More

Hilo Hattie's was an iconic stop on our day trip whilst on a cruise. Free shuttle makes it an added attraction. However, was disappointing as nothing special and if it seems that the business is going down, so not as expected and prices not particularly worth it all.

We were greeted at the cruise terminal by one of the family members who directed us to the free shuttle to their main store and was informed of the regular circuit through Waikiki Beach where we needed to visit to set up our resort arrangements. The store prides itself in selling Hawaiian produced products, possibly a bit higher cost than... More

We visited in 2005 and they had a great range and great value. This visit in 2015 we got the free shuttle. I think that was the best part of the trip the driver was great. When we arrived at the store welcomed and offered a drink only problem was there were no cups and when we asked the staff... More
