Food good, ambience ok. Could use an update to compare it with sister property Ponds next door. Menu was average, and the salad bar plate was tiny for 3.99 Main meal made up for the skimpy salad bar and the service was solid

This place hasn't been around that long and it doesn't look like much from the outside but it has pretty decent food. The ahi and seafood plates were very tasty.

We walked around Hilo bay and stopped for a coffee and looked at the menu and decided to try the breakfast. Ordered coffee, (one of the best we have had this holiday in Hawaii ) and ordered breakfast. I had a steak omelet with mushrooms, it had chunks of the most moist and softest steak around, and there was plenty... More

We have come to this place 4 times now. No matter how hard we try. We always miss the lunch hours, and have to eat the happy hour menu. Maybe daddy plans it that way. The chopped steak pupu @ $6 is the best chopped steak I has ever tasted. Good mixed drinks, and cheap beer on tap

The restaurant is nice, a little outdated. The service was a little slow as there were only 2 servers on duty. The food was pretty good, I had the kona fisherman's catch and my husband had the coconut shrimp tikis. The fish and shrimp were delicious, but the rice was a little bland and the fries slightly undercooked. The sauce... More

We found this place during their happy hour limited menu time. Around 2-3pm. We weren't expecting much but the cocktails and entrees were great. Wonderful service too.

Found this place by accident. We had booked our vacation at the Hotel next door. As part of our booking, it included free breakfast for 2. We took advantage of the breakfast. GREAT breakfast. Not some cheap bagel & coffee. We had a choice of 3 FULL breakfasts. They were all great. Large portions, delicious. Service was excellent. Thank you... More

We had dinner at the Coconut Grill in Hilo during our last night on the Big Island. It was by far the best meal of the trip! Despite being in a party of 14 with other tables also occupied, our service was excellent. The waitress was friendly and efficient. After dinner, even through our sides were popping, my sister-in-law and... More

We only had breakfast here but had the most delicious crab cake Benedict and fried rice and eggs for breakfast. Service was very good too. Located adjacent to Hilo Seaside Hotel.
