We stopped for a bite to eat while visiting Hilo. They have good food and the stf is real friendly. We ate outdoors and had a great time.

Comparatively speaking this place is less alternative then most other restaurants around hilo. The food is OK and the service is not bad. It fills up for lunch, so plan on waiting in line for rush hour. I'll recommend this place.

We debated which place to choose for a nice night out in Hilo but decided on Pineapple's and it did not let us down. First off, we each had drinks, an appetizer, main course and then split a dessert (wish we would have gotten one each it was so good), and the bill was only $75! Now I don't know... More

Had a late lunch with my wife and overall the food was OK, the waitress was not good, tried to make up for it with a free dessert but I would have rather had good service. Turns out the dessert was the best part of the meal.

Atmosphere is good. Food is okay. Have been there twice and sent my food back twice. Both times my hamburgers came out burnt. Not ordering that again. Little on the expensive side. Everyone is very friendly

We ate here last night and were very pleased. My husband had a spicy fish dish and I had the pineapple burger which were great.

After hitting the farmer's market in Hilo we walked a block and found Pineapple's! Menu is terrific with usual fish, seafood and meat choices. Nice salads, burgers and sandwiches available as well. The pineapple burger is different but worth a try. Kalua pork was yummy and of course the beer was cold! Service was excellent. Friendly staff was always checking... More

Open air right on the street. Next to the farmer's market. Fish and chips were excellent. The other fish specials were outstanding. The burger was large and the meat tender and not overcooked. We went twice. Cocktails were not too sweet. Service was also good. Great experience both times with the kids.

We came here on a Tuesday night and were surprised by how full the place was. Vibe was cool and there was live music. Service was quick. I ordered a salad and my husband ordered a marinara pasta. He wasn't too keen on his dish but mine was good and there seems to be great variety on the menu.I finished... More
