We stopped in at Paniolo Country Inn while driving in the Waimea area of the Big Island. Giving it 3 stars is possibly stretching it a bit. The Bill was approx. $40.00. We had 1 beer and soda. My wife ordered the fried chicken with well done(crispy) french fries. I ordered their cheeseburger deluxe also with well done crispy french... More

This spot is a favorite for us after our Saturday morning market shopping. The environment is casual and a great local favorite.

They serve one of my all-time weaknesses! A homemade Mud Pie that is absolutely to die for. Heading there now for breakfast as we have heard great things about their morning meals!

I've been coming here since the 1980's and have never been disappointed. Nothing fancy, just good tasting food at a fair price. My favorite is the BBQ chicken. And, don't forget to take get some homemade chocolate chip/mac nut cookies for the road.

We tried this place just to try something different. The food was good, but nothing special. The service was typical for a diner. Not sure we'd be back when you have options like Village Burger and Hawaiian Style Café right around the corner.

I only go there if Hawaiian Style is closed or has too long of a line. The service is just like the food, make sure you sit in plain sight.

Located in the small town of Waimea right on the edge of "cattle country". It's not a five-star restaurant and it's a bit "dated" but the decor and atmosphere are quite fitting for this area. Have had their pizzas for lunch many times and have never been disappointed. A "small size" is enough for two adults. Service has always been... More

Just like the restaurants on the tv show this place is in need of help. First the decor is worn out early 70s. We walk in and the staff ignored us for 5 minutes or so....they were busy looking at a computer. Finally when no one helped us, the manager or owner who was sitting at the back of restaurant... More

We stopped in here for breakfast on the way over to the east side of the island. Breakfast was reasonable and tasty and the service was friendly but the restaurant looks worn out!
