This was the worst place I have eaten in my life! We waited 20 minutes for someone to bring a menu. There were only 3 other tables with customers. The waitress was in a bad mood. We finally were waited on. The food was terrible. I would recommend picking up a sandwich at the Sweetbread bakery down the road. It... More

One very grumpy manager. Fairly busy lunchtime but she clearly didn't want us or likely anyone else there. We ate a really nice pie and ran. Wanted to eat more but were not going to enjoy it however good it was. Very basic decor.

My wife and I were driving back to Waikaloa from Volcanoes National Park (southern route) and the restaurant we wanted to go to was closed. We kept driving and saw a sign for "the southernmost restaurant in the US." We were really hungry, so stopped in. Initially, I was disappointed - somewhat unenthusiastic reception and long wait to get menus... More

We stopped here on the way to the black sand beach. Picked up a salted caramel bar, a chocolate peanut butter brownie and a passionfruit bar. All very yummy. No crumbs left!

Awesome small restaurant in Naalehu; the food was great, prices are okay (approx. 10$-15$/ dish. the macadamia nut chicken and the fish and chips are really good. There was a band when we went on a Friday night (bottle of blue); awsome. Sit back, relax and eat!

Hana Hou was a nice place to stop on our way back from Pu'uhonua o Honaunau. While the food was not extraordinary, it was good and you get bragging rights for eating at the southern most restaurant in the United States. The service was friendly as with most of Hawaiian restuarants. The decor was very island breezy.
