Fish tacos smothered in cole slaw with burnt tortilla chips. Based on the other reviews I thought I couldn't go wrong. Not the case.

Staying at nearby condos and didn't want to cook or eat at a pricey sit down. We've been seeking fish & chips and tonight this fit the bill. It is frozen fish but it is cooked to order. I ordered the fish, shrimp & chips basket. It was good served with way more fries than anyone can eat. My husband... More

You get a pretty good bang for your buck here. We ate at quite a few places on the Big Island and this on delivered a good amount of food for the price you paid. The food was quite good as well. It's not the best fish and chips I've ever had but you could tell that it was made... More

This was our second trip to the Big Island. After spending high prices for eating out, Island Fish & Chips is a great relief. You place your order at the window and the fish is fried for you immediately. Seating is outside around the lagoon. The restaurant is located in the King Shops on Waikoloa Beach Drive. I had the...

standard fish and chips with fast service, but really hits the spot for a fast meal after traveling or on the beach all day. One in our party even had the chicken and said it tasted great.

The tempera veggies were great! Enjoyed eating them outside next to the pond and watching the fish. My mom tried fried pineapple with a sweet chili powder dusting, she enjoyed it.

I enjoy shopping at the Kings shops in Waikoloa but I want lunch at a reasonable price. Island Fish & Chips has a wide variety of seafood. It is a take-out kiosk with tables on the lakeside. I had a mahi-mahi fish sandwich for $8.49 and a tiny side of pineapple slaw for $1.50. I ordered the fish grilled. My... More

This take out fas food place specializes in fried foods like oysters, shrimp, fish and chicken and tempura vegetables. The fried items come are served super hot and crispy but very moist in the inside. Very good sized portions. You can do take away or eat there is their small seating area, which overlooks the water. The price is extremely... More

I ate here 3 times during my recent visit and enjoyed every bite. Situated outdoors at a walk up window, there is plenty of covered seating and tables overlooking a nearby man made lake. All in all a great experience and I recommend it.
