Stopped in for Breakfast

We stopped here for breakfast on our way to Hilo from Waikoloa. The restaurant wasn't very busy, and we were able to sit right away. This restaurant reminds me of some great, local spots we would stop in back in the small towns of WA and WI we'd visited. Lots of wood, some aging posters/artwork... read more

Good location if you're on your way to Hilo or just briging family for a home cooked meal. Seems like a small restaurant but you can fit several people in the booths or tables. It's nice when you enter a restaurant and you are greeted with a simple "good morning". Acknowledgement goes a long way! We got to the restaurant... More

The Paniolo Country Inn is a favorite for breakfast. Although they also serve local style dinner. It is located along Kawaihe Rd and easy to find. Many find the pancakes wonderful.

Food was on point, service and ambiance was good for a paniolo resturant. Mud pie was the bomb. Went as a family before Christmas parade and we will make it our transitional eating place for when we go to the next Christmas parade. Worth the stop.

We ate there this morning. The food was delicious. Not too many people were there as it is Thanksgiving day. We were so glad they were open. Good service.

We stopped here because we were hungry on a Sunday afternoon and it seemed everything else was shut down for the day. This place had a fairly full parking lot but we surmised afterwards that was because everything else was closed! We only ordered a couple of burgers, a pepsi and a coffee. The service was lousy, the food was... More

I ate the 6 oz New York steak. I ordered medium, but the steak was very well cooked instead. It was entirely flavorless (and the over cooking did not help). The veggies on the dish were over seasoned with dried oregano, which is a shame because I really love zucchini. I regret eating here. My husband preferred the half pizza,... More
