We felt ignored, took about 15 minutes just to get our water. The food was good but a little spendy. The atmosphere wasn't very cozy.

We ate here right after flying into Hilo and it really hit the spot! I had the snow crab and it was so yummy! Plus the coffee was delicious and the service was great! Our waiter was very helpful and friendly. Eating here made for a great start to our honeymoon.
