good grinds

Bite me has a big menu selection as long as you like fish.....and since you'd be in the Honokohau Harbour, chances are you like fish!!!

Great lunch!! If you are not a big fish fan, try the French Dip. Meat smoked on the premises. If you are a fish fan, you are in heaven.

Aloha, yes we do have a big fish menu and will hook you up with the freshest fish on the island. All our fish are locally caught by local fishermen, never gassed or frozen. Again thank you for your kind observations. Mahalo More

we love hole in the wall places and bite me did not disappoint. i wanted to suck back the bite me sauce itself. everything is excellent, even the veggi-medley instead of fries was excellent.

Nice spot on the harbor. Food was good not great service was good not great. If you have been on the water for the day, they do gave the catch of the day for sale. You might want to go cook it yourself though.

This restaurant also sells freshly caught fish - you walk past the fish counter and a very few indoor tables to the open bar / restaurant area. It has a lot of nautical ambiance. Seating is on red picnic tables with umbrellas, all crammed together. Although we arrived right after noon, we were able to sit down immediately. Turnover seemed... More

A very casual fishing harbor cafe but the fish is fresh and delicious. If you catch fish on one of their charters as we did, they will prepare your fish for your lunch!

From reading the previous reviews we were all really excited about checking this place out. It was right on the harbor and had the quant Hawaiian charm we expected; red picnic tables that had seen better days, lots of umbrellas to protect you from the sun and some beer. When ordering drinks we discovered they were out of sake, a... More

Aloha, thank you for stopping by our restaurant. I am sorry that we were not up to your standard. Please note we use the fish that comes in from the ocean that day, fresh as they can get. All our fish dishes can be grilled, panko crusted deep fry, sear or foil packed steamed. Also note your choice of fish... More

We'd discovered Bite Me a couple of years ago and made it our first stop for lunch after arriving back on the Big Island. The food is soooo good! We ate there three times this trip, twice for lunch and once for dinner. We also bought fresh fish to grill back at our condo. The price is right and they... More

The fresh catch is always a good option BUT, they go all wrong when it comes to sides. Canned beans, boxed rice, jarred salsa...all bland. If no effort is put into it, then they should just do away with them all together. The beer is good but not Ice cold- if you want that, head around the corner to their... More

Thank you for stopping by our restaurant. Just for clarification we do not use canned rice , Pico. Beans do come in a can and we cook them with our recipe. We use local produce as much as possible and rice comes from Thailand as the island does not produce enough rice to support the island population. Thanks again for... More

We regularly stop here for a meal at least once a year. It is a bit difficult to find, but if you get on Hawaii 19 turn into the street for Honokohau Harbor. Go down that street toward the ocean and make a right turn at the first cross street. Then past the boat repair docks and look for the... More
