Nice food and good service

Decent sports themed American restaurant that doesn't ruin the experience with too much noise. Good service, nice food and well worth the visit. By Hilo standards also doesn't close really early.

A nice sports bar in Hilo. The food is okay and the service is decent. It's a nice spot if there's a game you want to watch, but not the best spot just for dinner.

We grabbed lunch there after visiting some sites near Hilo. The burger was great, as was the fish and chips, beer and service! Definitely a good a little dive to check out! :))

This was the most disappointing visit. Went there for cool AC but it was warm. Then service was not good at all. Servers were to busy talking to each other to take our order. Then onion rings were cold. Won't go back for 6 months and hope they will improve by then.

For a family of four, with two watery adult beverages we spent close to $80 for lunch. The 1/2lb burgers did not taste freshly made, and the buns tasted of freezer burn. The one thing I sincerely enjoyed were the Kalua pork spring rolls; if I'd have known they were that tasty I would have ordered a few of those... More

Their hamburgers are terrific. It's 1/2 lb of beef with two kinds of cheese. My wife and I split one and were quite satisfiied. Great selection of Hawaiian tap beer also.

After walking around Hilo, Cronies was a great choice to unwind, sit back and drink a beer or two or three while enjoying a great burger and fries for dinner. Friendly staff and great food in a comfortable setting. Highly recommended.

We ate dinner here at the recommendation of our accommodation provider in town. Nice little sports bar with a family atmosphere. Great tasty food - burgers, fries and onion rings all popular on our table.

They have awesome burgers. My boyfriend had one that was enough for four people! This is the perfect place to chill out and watch some games. The location is right in downtown Hilo.
