Expensive for a standard Hawaiian buffut

standard lukewarm buffet breakfast but extremely expensive. Also, what Hawaiian breakfast place or buffet doesn't have Portuguese sausage. This was the only breakfast place out of 2 weeks that we ate at that had no Portuguese sausage,

This is the breakfast place for the whole Hilton Waikoloa Village Resort. It's big, busy, loud, and very expensive! Even with the HHonors Gold discount, we paid $50 for two! The food choices on the large buffet are vast, but nothing is memorable, or very good for that matter. Not worth it, but you don't have much choice. You're on... More

This was the best buffet. There was a great selection of breads, fruits, hot items, cereals, etc. One morning I had an American breakfast and then a Japanese breakfast. The servers are so nice and they are very accommodating. The food was amazing!

One word - overpriced! Paying $100 for a mediocre buffet for a family of 3 is probably my least favorite thing to do in Hawaii, but we arrived late the night before and were starved. The eggs were runny & pancakes chewy. The line for an omelette was too long because only one cook working. Just bite the bullet and... More

I ate just about everywhere you could eat at the resort as I was here for a full week. It's resort pricing in Hawaii, so I expect to pay a high price, but for a buffet with nothing new or fantastic, this was not worth it. The food was good, but not great. The selections available were typical for any... More

This is the breakfast place for the resort other than a coffee stand with muffins etc. The food was good yet the price was way to expensive. Sally, the waitress, is awesome.

It's a bit expensive for a breakfast - $30 per person. But, if you believe that the breakfast is the most important meal of the day, you will find it worth it. And the staff makes it all the more enjoyable. During our 4 day stay at the Hilton resort, we had our breakfast here. On the first day we... More

My parents purchased the breakfast package for this trip and am glad they did. I remember in 2002 coming here to have a $80 breakfast for a family of 5 at the far end of the resort. Now they have a huge building overlooking the lagoon. There is everything you can imagine at this buffet. There is a cook making... More

Full buffet with Asian foods and American. Lots of bacon, eggs, and the omelet man was wonderful. He could do 5 omelets at a time and knew which belonged to each of us. Fresh fruit too

We had breakfast here everyday. Food was always pretty fresh and it was good too. We sat near the windows to get a good view of the lake and people in it. You are also able to see a lot of the resort from sitting near the window. Apple juice was really good also! They tend to get busy to... More
