Wow what great food and service. We, two couples, ate here on three different nights the week we were in Pahoa. Between the four of us, we ate different menu selections and we were all very satisfied with the quality of our meals. The atmosphere was good.

Everything on the menu has been great! We just discovered them after coming here for years. Good, great food and service. Bar is good too and prices not too bad!

My friend and I visited this area of the island for the first time. We were hungry and landed at this amazing place the first night... Didn't eat anywhere else after that. As foodies we can tell you these folks know what good food and good service are. Everything we tried was very well prepared and their drinks are very... More

It was Valentine's day so our seating option was the bar. The bartending worked hard though the food was average and so was the wine, also rather expensive for what we got. The atmosphere would have been fine except for the loud motormouth a few barstools down. Although we were seated at the bar there were at least a few... More

Nice little place. Good food, okay cocktails and beer selection. Service was odd. We kept asking ourselves why did the server cop an attitude after we ordered? He did everything but slam our food down. It was bizarre. Experienced this same kind of manner when we ate there again a few days later. Had the fish special and it was... More

If you are ever in Pahoa on the Big Island of Hawaii, I recommend that you have a meal at Kaleo's Bar & Grill. My husband and I spent 2 nights in Pahoa and after having a very enjoyable dinner at Kaleo's the first night that we were there, we returned again for our second night. The food is good... More

This is such a great restaurant. The food is excellent and many times there is music and hula. The pork wontons are great and they cook steak to perfection. Highly recommended!

My wife and I drove down to Pahoa from our holiday rental outside Kailua-Kona. We drove south along the main road, rather than using Saddle road. This took us about three hours, having experienced quite a bit of fog on the journey. We had intended to walk around the town before eating, but after such a trek, we made for... More

They don't give u what u order. They tell u u have to order all entrees instead of the 20.00 appetizer. If that's all u order then they charge u 50% more. Service marginal. Customer service awful. Everything over priced. Service slow. We left. Good riddance. No way would any food make up for that kind of treatment. Go at... More

We went here after going to the tide pools (highly recommended). It was mid afternoon so not at all crowded. Server was very pleasant. The food was great. Fried calamari with a coconut coating was especially good. Fish and chips were also great. It's a funky little town that's worth visiting if you're nearby and I think Kaleo's is a... More
