My husband and I stopped here enroute to Volcanos National Park, and we were hoping for so much more after reading reviews on this website. Perhaps it was just an "off" day for the restaurant, but in our opinion the food was just bleh. Nothing to write home about. Just okay. We were hungry, and we filled up on the pulled pork, but it was nothing special. Service was slow, with an indifferent server, and while we each had a slice of pie neither of us thought the pies lived up to the reputation which preceded them. There is always a bit of fun in walking into eateries which have not updated their interiors for decades, and have no desire to do so, but for us, the Hana Hou could use some generous overall cleansers and polishes. When we vacation in Hawaii, we are not looking for "take or leave it" experiences, and unfortunately, the Hana Hou impressed us less positively than we'd prefer to report.
