I thought I had already submitted this review but will do it again because for us this was a great and fun experience. I have always purchased fish at the market over the years but had not eaten at the restaurant. We arrived at 11:30 a.m., before any rush. Service was super with Krista (Kristen?)...very attentive and she recommended Monchong..which... More

Everyone in Hilo told me to go to Bite Me fish market. They said that it was out doors, and on the docks. OK We did, and we were not let down one bit. it was great, clean, fresh, and friendly. My wife and I both had the catch of the day it was grilled Ahi.

This restaurant has so many coupons and ads that you'll really think its something special, don't let this fool you! We tried the worlds famous fish dip...the worst famous fish dip that one of your friends brings to a pot luck that doesn't know how to cook. Drunks from the boats liter the bar like its their second home and... More

The happy hour was perfect! Cheap great tacos and cold beer. The view was great. The boats and sunset would have been perfect for a date.

This place was recommended by a local fellow. We had a hard time finding it, but finally did. The seating is picnic tables, which is hard to get in and out of after having a hip replacement. The food was average and not memorable. The only thing this place has going for it, is that it is located right on... More

It's not in a very conspicuous place but it's a phenomenal restaurant. Seems to be just a local place right on the harbor, I'm not even quite sure how we heard about it. I would definitely go back though. The fish tacos were amazing. Not a great view of the sunset (as it looks out to the south) but it... More

Excellent fresh local fish for the restaurant or for home consumption. It doesn't get any fresher than the Bite Me. Location can be a bit challenging, north of Kona and south of the airport, but worth the effort. Not fancy- just plainly very tasty. Friendly service. Very cold beer. Located at the marina with the usual visual distractions. Highly recommended... More

The fresh fish tasted amazing in the restaurant and we were served by friendly staff. Definitely the best fish we tasted on the island, probably as it was so fresh. It was also very reasonably priced, cheaper than some of the 'posher' restaurants! Would definitely recommend going here for something to eat\drink.

Not a bad place. Had to search for it as it was beyond another restaurant, Harbor House, next to the docks. I had the special Marlin and Shrimp Tacos, they were ok. Small place that didn't accommodate large groups of more than 6. Ended up pushing two picnic style tables together. Service was good. Not a place I would high... More
