Great Little Hole in the Wall

Stumbled across Island Fish while shopping and glad we did. Just a little walk-up window with very good fish, shrimp and chips. Better than some we had in Lahaina last week for twice the cost. Will return for a nice relaxing lunch watching the koi swimming in the lake.

not a place for dinner unless you want to watch people dining at Roys. Fish fresh and just okay. Nothing to write home about.

Had the Ono fish and chips - crisp and flaky, good hot fries. $12 is a bargain in this tourist trap. Walk thru the mall back toward the lake for good lakeside grinds.

After a day of exploring and shopping we were hungry but didn't want to get "dressed" for dinner. Found this little gem at Kings Shops. We ordered at the window and split an order. Sat outside near the lake and enjoyed a great meal. We couldn't eat all the fries/chips. The fish was crispy and not greasy. Food prepared to... More

This little tiny window style restaurant has the best local fish and chips around. The prices are fair and the food is fantastic. Local owner and they are usually on site. Fresh catch of the day is generally featured and the service is fast. It has outdoor seating and the tables are usually full and need a good wipe. There... More

Order at the outdoor counter on the lake side of the King's Shops, wait for your meal to be freshly prepared, fill your own soft drink cup (no liquor license here) and sit down at a lake side table with a good chance to get a Nene sighting or two. Value is high, the price is good, and you can... More

Located at the back of the King Shops this was a good find, it is a walk up food stand and there was lots of outdoor seats around the fish ponds. We both had the Shrimp, Fish and Chips Basket, the fish was very good and tasted baked not fried, however I think it is fried. The price is excellent... More

We ate lunch here after dropping family at the airport. Pretty view. The amount of food was adequate, but the food itself was average. It's a walk-up order, so the turn around time was good.

We were looking for a simple but good and inexpensive meal one evening in the Waikoloa Beach area. Ran across Island Fish & Chips in the King's market. It is just a fast food site located behind the shops by the pond. My husband ordered fish & chips and I ordered coconut shrimp and chips and two soft drinks. Bill... More
