“Good spot for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Decent place for a quick lunch stop in Hilo. Burgers were huge and delicious. Ahi chowder was a nice change. Lots of drink choices. Reasonably priced, quick and attentive service. Very helpful staff with directions and recommendations for things to do in the area.

“Hilo home cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

Homemade food and local beer; a down home atmosphere . My husband loves his chicken soup after some misgivings ordering it (afraid of something from a can)

“Surprisingly good lunch food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

I had the teriyaki burger which was excellent. Hawaiian kalua pig and pineapple pizza is a must have. Ask for barbecue sauce instead of red sauce in the pizza.

Ambiance was lacking but the food made up for this.

The Hawaiian wraps and crab cakes were quick favorites for the table.
