Nice meal

I ordered the chicken basket, and the people I was with all ordered Ono baskets. We were all pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The baskets come with a lot of fries, and the fries are delicious too. The pineapple slaw, which comes with each meal, is also tasty. The only seating... read more

we enjoyed the catch if the day- Ono fish. Portions are quite generous- 3 pieces of fish, lightly breaded in tempura batter and fries. The fish is wonderful and hearty.A tasty tartar sauce and pineapple infused coleslaw is included. Two orders generously fed 3 adults. There is a lovely outside seating area beside a pond but we did take out.... More

Food is average but the weird thing that the lady didn't want to give me the ketchup bottle , she had the nerve to ask for it and take it back to the counter from our table.

The food is ok. It kind of reminded me of Long John Silver's. There are not a whole lot of choices when you are at King's Shops, so this ended up being our choice as we were ready for some lunch and wanted to stay to watch the Duck Race. We were there on July 4th and needless to say,... More

This outdoor restaurant is located in the King's Shop of Hilton's Waikoloa Village. There's not many quick places to eat in this village. The seating is all outdoor, overlooking a large pond. Food is excellent. Had the fish and chips and better than average. Coleslaw has bits of papaya in it that added a nice twist to what can be... More

We went to the window and ordered. The order taker was pretty rude and short with us. I ordered chicken tenders and my wife ordered the fried shrimp. We watched them take everything out of the freezer and into the fryer. I got 3 measly tenders and my wife got a couple shrimp. The setting was nice on the lake,... More

The eel bowel was good but my the fish on my fish and chips (their namesake dish) was terribly over cooked. The food felt rushed and cookie cutter.

If you are in the mood for Fried Fish and Chips, this is your place. We shared some popcorn shrimp, fish tacos, and fish with calimari, which were all good. If you are here for a few days, I would make this one of your lunch destinations.

If you don't mind getting your food at a takeout window & sitting outdoors this is the place for you. There are so many items on the menu & at decent prices. It was a good change from the other high priced restaurants in the Kings Shops area.

Just simple fish and chips. Tastes good and probably one of the cheapest meals you will find in Waikoloa. $90 for our family of five. We sat out on their patio which faces the lake and fed the birds while eating. Not bad food and its a simple in and out around the shopping area. The Clam Chowder was the... More
