Funky Tiki Bar from the 60's

Grab yourself a MaiTai and check out the past tsunami levels painted on the windows. Live music most nights of the week we were there.

The locals swarmed this place and I understand!! The food is AMAZING!! It is connected to the Hilo Seaside Hotel and the hotel offered free breakfast (with the package we purchased) and I have to say, THE BEST Home Fries I have EVER HAD!! The staff is nice, pleasant and helpful. Yes, We will be back!!

We only ate here as it was included in our stay. The food was ok but it is hard to comment as we only ate breakfast here and both my husband and I had eggs and bacon. Toast wasn't included in the breakfast so we purchased it separately. Highlight of the breakfast was the complimentary banana bread they offer. Very... More

Connected to Hilo Seaside Hotel. The food was OK, but not great. Except the salad bar was really good. Service was good and food came quickly

This has become my "go to" place for lunch in Hilo. Service is friendly, the food is good and the place has a kind of 50's feel to it. In all my visits the it has been consistently good. Far above what you might expect from a restaurant connected to one of the lower cost motels in Hilo.

We ate here twice and enjoyed both visits. The first time we had the Hakuna burger with waffle fries. Very tasty and filling! The second time we had coconut shrimp tikis. The presentation was so cute! Five jumbo shrimp rolled in coconut and crushed macadamia nuts and placed on skewers into a thick juicy slice of fresh grilled pineapple. There... More

We enjoyed two daily breakfasts at the Coconut Grill while staying at the Hilo Seaside Hotel. Both days we were served by the most friendly and capable waiters!! Though we were coupon customers (breakfast included in the hotel room rate), we were treated as well as any other customers. 3 choices of breakfast were offered on the coupon.

Feels like home here, we've stayed at the hotel more than once and like to come back to the restaurant when we can. Good food, pleasant service, filling and nutritious salad bar.

Loved the window showing the water level during 1957 & 1960 tidal waves! Nice decor. Wait staff were very nice. Breakfasts were good. Had one dinner & that was good too.
