Food was great!

We ordered a BBQ Pull pork sandwich and shared between me and my girlfriend, and it was enough and satisfying. Price was reasonable

Plan ahead for the homemade desserts. Best food stop during your circle tour around Hawai'i island! Yes, the bakery is fine, but for a real meal, it's Hana Hou!

This is a fun little place to grab lunch. The southernmost restaurant in the US--I love a good *hook*--was really good. I had the loco moco (local Hawaiian favorite) with beef patty and the liliko'i lemonade. Both were very good. This place definitely has a diner-type feel, so it's very informal and relaxed. Our party of 4 had lunch there... More

We enjoyed a great meal at the Hana Hou Restaurant on our way from Pahoa to Kona. After stopping off at the Black Sand Beach, we wanted a place to grab a bite before traveling on to Kona. The macadamia nut/chicken salad, soup of the day (mushroom barley), and sandwiches were well prepared and delicious. Service friendly and quick...and we... More

We were on our way from Kailau-Kona to Volcano when we stopped here for breakfast (thanks to TripAdvisor). The food was excellent and the service was great. This is the southern most restaurant in the US which made the stop more memorable too. Recommended.

The only thing missing was the little $.25 jukebox at each table. Formica table tops and blue vinyl chairs it wasn't much to look at and at first glance a more critical customer would turn around and walk out. We stayed and had a very taste reasonably priced meal. But, don't forget a piece of pie. They had many to... More

If you are in this area, this is a must visit for lunch. We had Macadamia Nut Chicken, Fish and Chips, a Greek Salad and a chicken sandwich called "The Bird". We were all extremely happy with every aspect of each meal and service was quite good as well. Try it and enjoy...

Enjoyed a very good lunch of Macadamia Grilled Chicken and a Macadamia Chicken Wrap. Also ordered two chocolate pastries to take along to Volcano. Friendly service, a nice lunch.

We stopped in for a later lunch from a local's recommendation. There were two other tables with customers and only one waitress. The service was very slow and the restaurant was quite warm and stuffy. I ordered the fish & chips - the fish was excellent and the side of cole slaw was good. Hubby enjoyed his bbq pork. Overall,...
