“Pineapples my first night and last night in Hilo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Came to Pineapples my first night in Hilo, and returned to Pineapples my last night in Hilo. An extremely open-space, patio-like bar restaurant with laid back, cool live music. The staff is very friendly/professional and the drinks are reasonably priced. Pineapples is a homely, welcoming restaurant that is sitting for families or solos.

“Great everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I had the Hawaiian Punch cocktail and fish and chips. That cocktail is dangerously delicious and the food was very good. The fish was fresh and perfectly cooked with crispy shell and moist fish inside. We also tried kahlua pork nachos. Make sure you share those because they are big and super yum.

“Good PuPus Why Bother w/Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Michael the bartender usually works nights and is witty, engaging and fun. PuPus were OUTSTANDING - scallops, shrimp, mushrooms and cheese puffs. Sauces made them all different. Have no idea on entrees but...

“Accomodating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We ran into this place by accident: driving down from a visit up on Mauna Kea we were tired and hungry and saw the sign for "fresh Island Cuisine".They were busy but able to fit us in. We got Coconut crusted Mahi Mahi and Macadamia Lemon Chicken, both were excellent. We split a chocolate decadence which was lovely. The atmosphere was casual and friendly, there was live music but neither loud nor obnoxious. We recommend!

“Relaxing lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

We had an enjoyable lunch in this pleasant open restaurant downtown Hilo. We had mostly fresh fish and salads and had fun with a tasting flight of four different Mai Tais. Service was good and friendly. Great ambiance.
