There's not a lot of choices of places to eat in Pahoa. So comparatively, this place is good. However, it could be a lot better. Its a dive inside with unused equipment sitting around taking up a lot of the indoor sitting space. No service. Unknown what kind of oil they use... worried it might be soy, which is both... More

We fish (mahi mahi) and waffle chips and fish wrap- which both were good and more than we could eat. There is a cooler to get your drinks from- water, cold coffee, some off mainstream soda. There are about 5 tables total 2 outside and 3 inside. The atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired- but the food was great.... More

The fish and waffle fries were very good. That day they had mahi mahi, ono, or cod. We choose the ono with waffle fries and also the ono sandwich with onion rings. I think next time I'll skip the sandwich because it was difficult to eat since the pieces of fish were large but still tasty. The fish was fried... More

This place doesn't have much in the way of atmosphere, but it does have the best fish and chips! It's very fresh and delicious. The potions are large, and the waffle fries are some of the best I have ever had. They have Ono, mahi mahi, and cod to choose from. Also, you can get shrimp tempura and chips! This... More

I've eaten here at least once on every trip (4 times now), never had a bad experience. Hearing about the lava flow I was worried they might disappear, luckily they they haven't budged. The atmosphere was always fun, eating on the strip mall sidewalk watching the people go by was great, many people asked how the fish was today. With... More

We had the huge fish and chips combos (mahi-mahi with shrimp) that was a LOT to eat. You get cole slaw and waffle fries (more fries than we could eat). There are a few tables inside and outside. This shop WAS right in the path of the June 27th lava flow (which has stopped) and they decided to stay put.... More
