I usually order the fried aholehole, steamed mullet, or macadamia nut crusted mahimahi, but I just wasn't in the mood for fish, so I decided to try the prime rib, which I love and had heard was good here. It's not good, it's GREAT!!! It was tender, juicy, cooked perfectly, and even had an awesome rock salt crust!! It was some of the best prime rib I've had anywhere!
I almost always have a green salad to start my dinners, but the cream of Hamakua mushroom soup sounded so enticing that all three of us decided to try it, and it was a good decision for all of us. The soup was heavenly!! If it's available when you dine here, order it!
And don't forget dessert. It was hard not to order the Hilo Homemade ice cream, but the brownie delight and mud pie were the perfect ending to an awesome meal.
The Seaside is always on our itinerary when we visit Hilo, but now we even more reasons to dine here. We've always known they served great fish, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover that their prime rib is just as good!
