We were staying next door, so tried it, and it was a satisfying meal, nothing special, but good. The staff does go out of the way to meet your needs, and tells interesting anecdotes. Closes pretty early. Good for a quick bite.

I had breakfast here while staying at the Hilo Seaside Hotel. I can recommend the Sweetbread French toast with the coconut syrup. The location is very convenient and the food and service were good.

Perfect location as we stayed at the Hilo Seaside and they are connected. Had a good hearty breakfast cooked just the way we asked it to be and decent price.

The fried ice cream was delicious-shared it with 4 others. We thought they reminded us of our visit to see the volcanoes.

Fresh Salad Bar plus good food. We ate lunch here while we were waiting for our room next door at Hilo Seaside Hotel.

We had 31 people dining in a back room, with a delicious buffet chosen beforehand. Everyone complimented the food, and there was a lot of it. Good service, they cared about our evening. Definitely recommend!!

Slow service to begin. Ordered pork laulau. It arrived still frozen and barely warm. Sent it back and switched to the salad bar. Best avoid.

Thoroughly enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Scott, our waiter was awesome. Ate dinner while overlooking the bay. Highly recommend and will be back on our next trip through.

It's a nice little place with a simple and friendly atmosphere. The service staff is good, however the food is only average. I had the fisherman's catch which was just fish and chips made with Mahi Mahi, it was a bit greasy, but the portions were adequate and the in house tartar sauce was a little different, but quite good.

Thank Cole_AK97
