Besides there being an unusually long wait, this place was totally worth it. MAKE A RESERVATION!! I got the chicken, hubby had a steak and friends had the short ribs. All our dishes were amazing!!! We have eaten out on all the islands for the last few weeks and this was the best meal we had yet! It's a must... More

We did the Lava Oceans Tour to see the Kilauea lava flow and at the end of the tour Capt Shane suggested a few places in Pahoa to eat dinner. We are staying in Waikaloa so we had a 2 hour drive to get home and we were hungry having skipped eating food prior to the expected rough boat ride.... More

Have eaten here each and every time we visit this area and have always enjoyed the wonderful food. A varied menu with fresh daily fish (s) and wonderful wine selection and the service is always enjoyable. Great times are had here.

Went there on a Thursday, at around 530 for dinner. Seated in a side Lanai, which was out of the way but fine. Took a solid 15 minutes to get a drink order in. Ordered the Tempura Ahi roll, which was well fried and tasty. Spicy Wasabi mayo was great. Shared the Dynamite and Hawaiian Chicken teriyaki with the wife.... More

We came at about 2 and had a wonderful lunch, curry, fish, shrimp pasta dishes. All were great! Service excellent. To top that off, we stopped in town that evening and tried to park in their lot not realizing that it was a dedicated lot. The attendant was very cordial and suggested another area in a very friendly manner. They... More

This place doesn't look like much from the outside but inside - WOW! The food and service were amazing. They also had live entertainment that was just the right background for the dining experience. If you are in Pahoa - make it a point to stop in.

We loved this spot! Great food! We had MahiMahi Volcano Style and the Dynamite (spicy mayo seafood). We had the poke appetizer, banana spring rolls and cheesecake for dinner. It was delicious! Rupert Tripp played guitar and Loni the bartender gave us a Luau show! It was like spending time at my favorite hometown bar and grill! It was perfect!

We came here on our first night in the area after reading a number of positive reviews, and we weren't disappointed -- so much so that we returned the following night! I would definitely recommend having the daily fish, and having it served in volcano style. The fish was much better than the meat course (Korean ribs) that I had.... More

This is one of the very few local restaurants in the Pahoa area. We stopped here for lunch. The seafood and the pasta were quite good, the chicken was ok. The Kaula pie is very good. Service was attentive and food is reasonably priced.
