As I looked around I noticed large cobwebs hanging all over the outside of the place and on the higher places inside. The upholstered seats were filthy. I was not about to use the restroom.

Paniolo Country Inn was a weird experience. Customers were odd, our table was close to the kitchen, which seemed not exactly neat, food was average. The only redeeming feature was the good service. The whole experience left us uneasy.

We just happened to pass by this place and luckily we stopped. As we entered the daily specials caught my eye and I noticed the stew.

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.
