Food was excellent, service was excellent, and the atmosphere was small town home feeling. Lots of parking and selection of menu items was very adequate. Tasty food that was plated well.

the menu selection is a bit limited. prices are a bit high for the items offered (like about $13.00 for hamburger steak with gravy. my hamburger steak had a strong "beefy flavor", typical of range beef, which i don't particularly enjoy. the gravy was good but the steamed rice a bit dry. my wife thought her chopped steak was ok....

Visited this restaurant in Hilo, Hawaii for our anniversary. Called Coconut Grill next to Seaside Hotel. We had called the restaurant to ask if we needed to make a reservation. We made one and told worker Kahea that it was a special night for us, and gladly helped us get a 5:00pm dinner reservation. Upon arriving, our waitress was Rain... More

This restaurant does not really appear like it might be anything too special, but the prime rib was absolutely exceptional! I don't know if we were just lucky with our cut of meat the night we dined there, but it was unbelievably tender and had delicious flavor. If we are ever back in Hilo we would definitely dine there again.... More

This restaurant is adjacent to the Seaside Motel. It doesn't look like much from the outside; in fact I didn't want to stop here, but my husband insisted. I was glad he did, because the food, service and drinks were amazing. We hit Happy Hour, and the 2 Hurricanes I had for only $4 each were large, and they did... More

Other than 1 waitress with an attitude (who was pulled aside by management), it was a great experience and food was good-very good.

I have been here many times before. I’ve actually done small parties here because they are really the only ones with a private room. Food is decent and their service was always poor. Your best bet is to have their simple salad bar to avoid the long wait. Today’s visit took the cake….the most horrible service I have received anywhere….and... More
