Came here to try some traditional Hawaiian food, and we were not disappointed. Very good drinks, fresh poke, and good daily happy hour deals. Bartender was very nice. Would come back for another meal.

Things get pretty quiet In Kailua-Kona after 10. We arrived late from mainland and tried a restaurant that was closing right at 10 pm. They directed us to Chill’n and we had some great fish and pork tacos. Folks were friendly too.

Small bar that serves limited food. Great location to wind down your last day in Hawaii. Good tacos and burgers. You can watch the surf break and the sun set and have a great local draft beer!

This is a very small place, but the food was amazing and the views are spectacular. If you like spicy chicken wings, this is the place to go.
