A fairly average restaurant.

Basically a very average place to eat. Service is good but menu is uninspired if not particularly expensive. On the occasion we were there most of the deserts were unavailable dur to a refrigeration problem that had left them with no ice cream.

The service was very good though. There are not a lot of great options for breakfast in Hilo. We liked Paul's Place much better

Connected to a hotel, this very accommodating restaurant has a basic menu with most fish items fried. There is a salad bar that has a cost for one trip, and a different cost for two trips. I found the menu and food to be satisfactory. Great friendly staff. Be sure an check out the window, closest to the hotel that... More

We ordered 4 appetizer which were very good, portion not small. They were $5. each. We also ordered drink which were also on special. I had... More

Coconut Grill is off the beaten path, so it takes awhile to drive there. It was great to sit by the Koi pond. Would have enjoyed seeing the huge lake beyond the pond. The food was average and the service was good

Unfortunately we thought some of the food was very poor tasting. I'm sure we could have said something and allowed management to try to correct (the seafood pasta and then 3 type deserts were the items that I tasted that were bad but also looked like my friend's crab legs were not very fresh). Unfortunately it is one of those... More
