Great Seafood

Small harbor side joint. Great food prepared just right. Parking was a little bit of a problem. Worth the trouble though.

We enjoyed a great meal at Bite-Me Fish Market Grill. Discovered a new fish (Mong Chong) and were able to buy it fresh. We watched the fishermen bring these fish from their boats. It is a quaint fishing village style restaurant with a great selection of fish.

Stopped here after snorkeling for a meal- had the marlin tacos and the catch of the day tacos. Both were excellent and you are able to substitute a side salad for beans and rice which is nice. Great service also. Highly recommend this restaurant

This is a bit of a locals den - and I can see why. Positioned between Kona and their airport this can be pretty busy around lunchtime. Simple meals served fresh. It's hard to beat the King Crab legs with melted butter - reasonably priced and always good. The fish taco is also a popular choice. Every time we travel... More

Went back to Bite Me on our most recent trip to Kona and it continues deliver really good seafood . . . great place to get away from the Alii Drive scene for a change . . . locals buy fish and hang out here too. Love the outdoor seating with views of the harbor, and opportunities to watch boats... More

Fresh catch fish tacos should be reason enough to go to Bite Me Fish Market and Grill! Favorite lunch spot when visiting Kona and fish tacos are the best! Very casual and laid back atmosphere and right on the marina for a great view!

After a great day at the beach, this was the hidden gem for lunch. Went south after reading great reviews! Delicious mahi sandwich and a fish Reuben paired with cold beers! Not fancy...very laid back! Great service with friendly smiles! Used the coupon for steamed shrimp appetizer! Delicious! Won't break your wallet! Must stop here while visiting the Kohala Coast...

This was the worst Restaurant experience ever. We walked in and were totally underwhelmed by the atmosphere, very run down looking. We needed to use the restroom first, and were directed to the restaurant next door. They have no restrooms! The food was terrible, cold beans and rice, and the fish in the tacos was over-cooked and rubbery. The price... More
