My word... The food was amazing. We had the Korean chicken and the house special pork. Probably the most local feeling restaurant of our whole Hawaii trip. The employees were super friendly and happy to have us there. The food is decently priced.. Under $12 for almost anything and the portions are fair for the money paid. Go here!!

After 'Fluming the ditch' we headed to Minnie's for lunch at the recommendation of our guide Popo. I had the roast pork special with an additional side of rice and potato Mac salad. The pork could not have been more juicy or tender! The brown gravy was perfect and the potato Mac salad was on point!!! Definitely a place not... More

A small cafe where one can sit outdoors and watch the world slowly pass by.Minnie will greet you with a friendly smile ,take your order, then prepare/cook... More

Recommended by a guide at Flumin' Kohala and such a good choice. Between our group of 8, we had the ono (fish of the day) platter, ono sandwich, barbq pork, turkey sandwich and barbq sandwich. Everything was awesome! The ono was better than the fish we had the night before at a restaurant charging twice as much. The barbq was... More

Small friendly local place. The service was good and the fish was fresh and well prepared. We would recommend this place if you are up in this area.

After some fun ATVing, we got to Minnie's after being referred by Keli'i of ATV Outfitters. I'm always on the prowl for a good Loco Moco, and Minnie's did not disappoint. Their menu is very diverse if you want other things, and the portions are huge! We did not leave hungry, and most of our group skipped dinner after still... More

Good food at reasonable prices. Try to get a table outside as it is a bit warm inside. We stopped here for lunch after zipping with Kohala Zipline. I had the catch of the day (Mahi Mahi) and enjoyed it very much. Be sure to try their cole slaw. It is quite different. It has a tropical spin.

We stopped here on a suggestion from a local and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious! The menu is full of Hawaiian BBQ cuisine.
