We had been told what great steaks were served at the Broiler. And so, We were looking forward to a great steak dinner - only to find out the Broiler is now closed.

Charming and authentic old-time cowboy/ranch decor. The old photos of the Parker ranch in action are an interesting historical touch. Food was very good, fairly straight-forward but with some twists. Especially enjoyed the coffee marinated brisket and the coconut coated calimari! Staff is very pleasant, and on a Saturday night in September it was not at all crowded, but the... More

While stay at a seaside resort on the big island we decided to venture out into the countryside for looks and eats. We found the Broiler on the GPS and decided to stop. The place is cowboy ranch style like we find in New Mexico. We were the only people in the restaurant and was greeted by a very friendly... More

We were in search of the Parker Ranch Museum, which several sites stated it was in the Parker Ranch Shopping Center. Unable to find it, we decided to stop in at the Parker Ranch Store. Greeting us in the entry way was the owner of The Broiler Restaurant. He asked if he could help us. After giving us great advice... More

Three of us had dinner here, it was okay but not fantastic. I thought my steak was a bit on the fatty side but the taste was good and the other meals were fine too. The desert definitely let them down, by the time we ate there was one choice ... strawberry cheesecake with not a strawberry in sight. The... More

We were traveling through a lovely small town up in the ranch country of the Big Island and were hungry for a steak dinner after eating seafood the first ten days of our vacation. A local person suggested The Broiler and we were not dissapointed. In fact the steak was great and perfectly cooked as one might expect but what... More

We found this to be a very good choice if you are looking for a steak dinner on the big island. The service was friendly and prompt. Their Caesar salad was fantastic. The steaks were good although a little thinner than we're used to. It wasn't very busy either of the 2 times we went. Atmosphere is casual/cowboy. The food... More

While touring the Big Island of Hawaii, we were looking for a great place to eat and unfortunately our GPA let us down as far as opportunities for sit-down fare. A quick search on the trusty cell phone led to a place called Broilers in the Parker Ranch Center shopping mall. After finding the place (their sign is hidden under... More

The entrance to this restaurant really raised our expectations after a long day of driving. What followed was a real let down. Inside the atmosphere was really lacking. Service was friendly but slow, even though the place was mostly empty. The food was not what we expected. Instead of ranch like proportions, my steak was small, raw and tasteless, as... More
