Our waitress,very friendly and helpful. Helped and gave gr8 suggestions on meals. She was on the refills of coffee too THO short staffed. The meals was average as any other eatery. Not thing special. Went in for Breakfast on a Sunday which was a very busy day at other places.

Had breakfast here with the family, and I'm a bit disappointed. Food came hot and fast, average taste nothing special and hot cocoa is ok. Roof was leaking when we got there. Styro plate and fork just don't cut it. I'll give it another try next time, since I'm from here anyways.

I love this place! They have the best steak breakfast in town (or in the state for that matter). Love their rib eye steak breakfast - too bad I can only eat it when I visit my family in Hilo (since I live in Honolulu). Don't know why this place isn't more crowded for breakfast - as it's my place... More

The "loco moco", a dish with a burger and fried egg over rice and under gravy, was supposedly invented at another local eatery, the Cafe 100. The versions at Freddy's in Hilo are all fresh and fabulous. Be warned: the "plate" version includes a double portion of everything and comes with sides, so it is a massive undertaking. "Potato Mac"... More

Don's Grill was closed one day, so we went to Freddy's Restaurant. It was after lunch, so there was only one other couple there. Waitress was polite enough. Our food took a long time to get. It was average at best. We decided that we probably won't eat there again. We were in the sit down section. There is also... More

I was a regular at Freddy's some years ago and recently returned for a take-out lunch (salad). In the past the food was OK and service at the counter was iffy. Today, the green chef salad was terrible. Most of the lettuce was beginning to brown and wilting; had to throwaway a portion. I would have returned it but it... More

Wherever I travel to, I'm always looking for where the locals frequent. In this case, WE are locals, and we love Freddy's. The prices are very reasonable and they have a great selection of Hawaiian favorites and regular food. I always get the garden Omelet. I'm 99% vegetarian, so I look for meat-free items. In this case it is consistently... More

Freddies is a long-time favorite place for us. You can order from the counter and take your tray into an open-seating set of booths, or wait a minute to be seated in a sit-down, order from a menu, environment, and have a nice relaxed meal. I eat vegetarian, and there is always something for me, and the menu includes all... More
