Authentic, delicious Hawaiian

We had a wonderful lunch here after visiting the Green Sand Beach. We had several things from the menu and they were all delicious. I would especially recommend the macadamia chicken with chutney and the fried rice is a must. The restaurant was packed and we were warned that it may take some time... read more

We were staying at a nearby B&B so options in and around Naalehu are limited. This restaurant served us well during our stay. We had three dinners here. Nothing fancy. Just good, quality comfort food. Great pies and very affordable. Recommend.

Casual atmosphere with great food! Our group had a great breakfast here. When we finished we made sure to get some of the baked goods to snack on later.

Great food!!! I have never been disappointed. Wonderful sandwiches on freshly baked bread. Good burgers. The best part is their desserts though. Their macadamia cream pie is awesome!!! I visit frequently. They have live music on Friday nights.

We stopped here on our way to the Green Sand Beach. The restaurant is really cozy, with local decoration. The food was delicious and waitress really nice. I would go there again for sure.

I guess it's ok if you are really hungry, but I wouldn't go in with high hopes. The service could be better, at least they should try to make you feel welcome and not as if you were annoying them, after all, this is their business!. They have a couple of cabins in the back, we asked about them, but... More

We stopped there for lunch on our trip from Kona to Volcano. There are not that many other options but this one was good enough. The food is really nothing special (bbq steak was quite bad), but at least there is variety and the prices are decent. They don't serve alcoholic beverages but allow you to bring your own -... More

My husband and I stopped in on our way back from the volcano and ordered a couple of the half size items on their menu for lunch. They were delicious, and the woman working there was really friendly. Their potato Mac salad and lilikoi bars are spot on! Definitely stop here if you get a chance.

In March my wife and I were on the Big Island for a visit to friends. I wanted to return to Hana Hou because it had made a strong impression on me during visits in 2005, and 2007. Naalehu is amazing, but what drew me back to the restaurant in particular was the pleasing Hawaiian food. When we got there,... More

Not much atmosphere here, I wouldn't even call it quaint like other reviews, but I will say that the food was very good. Portion sizes were generous and the desserts were homemade and worth the calories. The bathroom was not the cleanest though..
