This place has become another regular stop when we are on the Big Island, for lunch or breakfast. Both menus are varied and everything we have tried has been delicious. Servers are always friendly and the bacon... well, it's called the Home of Bacon for...a reason.More

This restaurant was by far our favorite on the Big Island. In an area (Waikoloa) that is trying to be Wailea in Maui, with most restaurants way over priced. No wonder so many people eat at the deli at the Island Gourmet market. Anyway we...ate there two days in a row at the same table with the same server. One day we had a burger which was easily the best burger I had devoured in a long time. Next day it was Sunday brunch, while the live music was just okay, the breakfast items we had were outstanding, in particular the bacon! Our server, Joyce?, was great; very attentive and friendly and down to earth. Amazing food, great atmosphere and reasonable (though still not cheap) prices, would highly recommend.More

The good is the bacon. It was sourced locally and came nice and crispy. They also do a shout out to the local suppliers on the menu. Service was acceptable but just barely. The other reviews are spot on. This location needs a hands on...owner that demands better from their wait staff.More

We were a group of 7, one of which was a child. We got seated right away but noted that others after us had to wait. Service was friendly and efficient. Two of our party had a the breakfast burrito - excellent and would return...for it. Another had loco moco and said is was good not excellent. in comparison, the general eggs breakfast was terrible. Eggs runny. No potatoes available at all for breakfast, only white rice. Only sour dough bread available. The banana brown sugar pancakes were doughy and terrible. They looked like an English muffin. Still trying to find the macadamia nuts. Coffee was not drinkable by two of our party. Fresh squeezed orange juice was good. Overall 50% loved it and 50% would never return.More

We walked from Hilton Village...we went for lunch and were not disappointed with our choices. I started with a lava flow frozen drink.( after the walk) was a real threat!! Then went for the poke nacho...which was fantastic and huge!! My husband choose the fish...and chip and loved them too!! Would recommend without reservation!! And the pricing was actually very decent!!!More

This is a great breakfast restaurant with wonderful food (one order plenty large enough to share), and with excellent and enthusiastic service.

Ono grinds all around! We had the pickled onion rings; nothing short of brilliant! The half pound bacon might have been half a pound before cooking but seemed a little shy but wonderful tasting. The ko mau jang chicken wings with fresh made mint sauce...were huge, moist and delicious. The BLT on a sweet roll was wonderful with summertime tomatoes. And the happy hour cocktails at $8 each were a great way to top off the meal. Service was friendly. Will definitely be going back before we leave the Big Island.More

This restaurant smoothly handled a big party of eight people. The service was quick and friendly. The coffee and water were quickly refreshed. Each person found a delightful dish, as the menu selections were varied. At end of breakfast, the evidence was clear that every...family member enjoyed this tasty breakfast, as not a morsel of food was left. Upbeat atmosphere. Kid friendly. Outside dining.More
