Situated right off the lobby of the Hilo Seaside Hotel this is a fantastic little restaurant and bar. The staff I've had the pleasure of interacting with have been friendly and upbeat.

We would eat at this place again if we went back. The breakfasts were particularly good - a choice of three options.

We had breakfast there each morning. There is a lot of food and enough to keep us going with a snack for lunch until dinner time.

My friend and I arrived for dinner at 5pm and were immediately greeted and sat. The decor was mostly older pieces with a few modern touches. There were only two other tables sat when we arrived but the restaurant slowly filled during our stay. Our table overlooked the water as well as the drop off for the (attached) Seaside Hotel....

Coconut Grill has a quaint "tiki style" motif, with grass cloth covered walls and just has a nice tropical feel. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was excellent. We had pancakes (light, fluffy and soft) and scrambled eggs with Portuguese sausage - eggs cooked perfectly, fluffy and moist. Coffee was excellent. Prices are reasonable and you get plenty... More

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.
