I had a lunch combo. It included pot stickers, BBQ beef, orange chicken, white rice, and macaroni salad. The atmosphere is good, the service fine, and the price fair. Here's the lowdown on the food: The pot stickers were very tasty, BBQ beef was cold, orange chicken was excellent, white rice was blah, and macaroni salad only good for one... More

This restaurant is tucked in a side strip mall. It doesn't look like much from the outside. The inside, however, was a surprise. The island décor is appropriate and the restaurant feels inviting. The food was good. Service is slow as other reviewers mentioned. Go and relax; pretend you're on island time. Prices were very reasonable. A good place to... More

We hesitated at the exterior but entered a cozy, well-decorated, well-lit room with huge, rounded windows that don't show in front. LOVED our asian-fusion, Hawaiian menu and eats! No problem with service, which was welcoming--& portions were large. We split a great Mahi-Mahi dish of fish tacos and skewers of the award-winning bbq chicken. YESSS

Feel bad for this review but years of waiting to be served properly has brought me to it. Been eating here for years, LOVE the food & atmosphere that's why we come back & spend $$! But I am sick of the lousy service, I understand island time & all that hubby is an islander, but when I spend $50-100... More

Great food, friendly service, beer from kona-what else could you want? Well...maybe more sunshine and less record breaking 2014 rain! Get some Kalua pork and Loli Loli chicken and you will be thankful. Hawaiian ice tea was a change but beer from kona is a personal favorite. Son loves the pork sliders. Apparently, live music on some Saturdays.

Found this place by searching TA on line and saw it was just down the street from my hotel. A co-worker and I decided to give it a try and we were glad we did. We started with the Poo Poo Platter for two (at $8.95) and it was excellent! For the price I was expecting skimpy, but I was... More

We have been going past this restaurant for more than a decade. Why didn't we try it before now? We did not try it because the outside decoration is cluttered, and the food was Hawaiian. Now that we have tried it, the clutter, which is also on the inside of the restaurant, is very easy to overlook. The fact that... More

We stayed in a hotel 0.5 miles away and this place was rated #1, so I had to try it. The cusine s a mixture of most of Asia (Phillipines, Japan, Korea, China, Samoa) plus American favorites. Add in some pineapple and you've got a meal. The food was very good and the portions were mammoth. Rice AND Macaroni Cheese.... More

Just went to Pac Island Grill for first time with a friend for lunch. We both had one of the lunch specials for $5.95, Loli Loli Chicken with the coleslaw. Very good chicken, coleslaw was also pretty good (maybe a little less dressing would make it perfect.) Service with a smile. Plenty to eat for lunch and a great price.... More
