“very tardy breakfast service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

we had breakfast vouchers for 3 days from hilo seaside hotel and waled in at 7 am on the 1st day...the staff was just walking in and told us to wait... meanwhile... other guests came in and the girls at their tables were taking thri orders and feeding into the computer. our waitress came to the table a good 10 minutes later, we asked for their healthy chioce... without the porridge and coffee as we were in a hurry to keep our 9 am appointment at waipio valley.we were served one tablespoon of yogurt and a small glass of juice , one small slice of banana bread and a half of a tiny papaya after some 20 minutes… we did not use our vouchers again…a buffet would have been easier on us... if we had had a decent service, we might have tried them again for dinner but it was such a bad impression we did not go back

“Very Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

This was our first time at this restaurant and all four had good food at reasonable prices. The prime rib was cut it with a fork tender and the Coconut Shrimp were the largest shrimp that I have ever eaten. We will be back next time in Hilo.

“Smoked Turkey Eggs Benedict!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

I have no idea what anybody else ate but the smoked turkey eggs benedict was all the further I needed to go! Great spot in Hilo to head to after that 6 AM arrival at the airport. In a nice location...across from a lagoon and the famous ice pond! The one place in town you can get a beer or a shot of Bailey's in your coffee at that hour. Super service and decent prices.
