Fresh!

I felt the portions were a bit small, especially for the price. But it doesn't get fresher than this! It's fun to sit and watch the fisherman come in with their catch of the day

I can not believe that a seafood place does not even know how to boil shrimp! Our shrimp was way (!!!) overcooked, and the seasoning on everything is just kind of thrown on there instead of it getting boiled in it. On top of that, our waitress was rude. "Happy hour" is 50 cents off of beer and wine. What... More

We stopped here just before flying back to the mainland. The fresh Ahi was delicious. I had the tacos and my husband and daughter both had the Ahi sandwich. The sandwiches had a very generous portion of fish on them. The tacos were good, but the fish was in such small pieces that it was a little overcooked for my... More

Tried out "Bite Me" at the recommendation of an employee of the hotel where we were staying. A great little place with red picnic tables and a bar serving really fresh fish. A bit difficult to find, but worth it. The Marlin sandwich was amazing as were the fish tacos. Service is on "Island time," so don't expect it to... More

Aloha, thank you for the wonderful review. Sorry you had a little wait to get the food. Most of our entrees are made from scratch and times a little longer than usual, plus like you said a bit of island time too. But we are glad you enjoyed our food. Come fish with us one of these days.

Had a quick lunch, service quick but not too enthusiastic.One meal was swimming in gravy with bland taste. The other did not taste as fresh as expected from a harbor restaurant .

I went here with my sister because she had seen some great advertising on this restaurant. Where do I begin? Not a fancy place by any means which is ok with me as long as the food is delicious. I paid $12.95 for the sandwich shown below. I realize that this is not much for Hawaii but I certainly expected... More

Aloha from Bite Me. We are not sure why you felt like the sandwich was not sufficient for your choice. It is made with fresh Marlin we caught, blackened and nestled between a standard size bun with choice of condiments. Hope you have a wonderful time in Hawaii. More

Whether for lunch, dinner or take out from the fish market, this place has excellent fresh fish. We ordered the sampler appetizer which had marlin ceviche, smoked marlin fish dip and ahi poke. It was enough for a meal, served with chips and Ritz crackers. I ordered the catch of the day, albacore tuna, which was seasoned with Bite Me... More

This place was recommended to us by our diving crew following a morning dive that returned to Honokohau Marina. They have super fresh fish and the specials change every day (which we know because we went back there about 3 times). They have a great selection of poke and wow, the smoked fish dip, that was stupendous. The freshness of... More
