Older décor , slow service and not the greatest food I've had in Hilo make this a place we tried but probably won't revisit unless it changes ownership and updates the old style décor.

We were staying at the hotel attached to this restaurant. We ate breakfast here everyday & a few nights for dinner. The food, staff & service was very good. During dinner, there were local entertainers who would play instruments & sing. And the atmosphere is relaxing!

We just had the soup and salad bar - both were excellent and the service was great too. The place could use a little updating, but I'm not sure that's a concern here on this laid back island.

I had breakfast there, and it was of good quality, and the service was friendly and prompt. If you stay at the hotel, they may include breakfast in the price of the room.

We had the Kahuna Burger and The Furikake Chicken Katsu. Food was plentiful. The katsu sauce was just a tad too vinegary. Otherwise, it was great.

Our first night staying at the Seaside we ate elsewhere, but we both preferred the Coconut Grill once we tried it. The salad bar wasn't huge, but fresh and interesting - I seldom see kimchee offered, for instance. We had the crab cakes and the coconut shrimp, and both meals were abundant and delicious. A nice surprise. Service was great... More

The prime rib was a bit fatty, but had a good flavor. Happy prices were decent. I ate there twice and wasn't disappointed. Dessert is yummy!
