This family friendly restaurant was great for dinner. Very popular with both locals and tourists alike. The serves are large so be prepared to either leave some or take some home! We had the Reef and Beef cooked to perfection; Kailua pork which was delicious but probably had a bit more cabbage than I would have liked but still tasty... More

It seems like a little restaurant, but once you get in, you realize it is a local hit!! The tables are full with constant customer turnover and the food is hot, fresh and fast. We went for lunch and dinner several times as it was excellent each time with good prices. You can have the catch of the day, other... More

Great food and service in Kon town. Excellent choices all around but the beef teri plate is especially awesome! The desserts are exceptional but you will have to share due to their great size! A wonderful choice on the Big Island!

Food is excellent, portions are big and the waiters are fast and friendly. Kailua pork had more cabbage than I'm used to, but very tasty. It was rather busy, but we didn't have to wait for a table or for the food. If you can, leave room for desert. Probably best to share though.

Yummy! We all had something different - from regular breakfast favorites to Hawaiian specialties. Incredible pancakes and coconut syrup, and had to try the Spam (hadn't had that since I was a child)! The service was excellent. We will be back!!

Food is very good. Reasonably fast service. Great waiter staff. Clean, neat, and 'off the Alii strip makes it a "Go To" place. Eat where the local eat. Braddah!

We found this place to be clean, comfortable, and with a wonderful breakfast menu. The service was prompt and courteous. The price point was perfect. We tried their Siemen soup and found it to be a delightful new breakfast treat. The hot mustard that came on the side added a nice flavor and cleared out the sinus tracts! We couldn't... More
