Pineapples has fresh fish and local greens. The food is good. Prices are good with the exception of a few items. It is clean and open air and centrally located to downtown Hilo. Clean bathrooms It's decor needs warmth but like I said the food is good and they are friendly. They have a bar.

Many of the recommended places in downtown Hilo are either very expensive (Pesto) or really small. Pineapples offers a nice choice, with an ample dinning area. Yes it is on a busy street and its an open air restaurant, but that is also the very reason we chose it. Get some fresh breezes and a good view of the farmers market and water front areas. We found the service very friend and prompt. There were two wait staff helping out on our table and a few others checked to see if we needed anything.

The food was excellent and generous. We had Kahula pork tacos and two burgers, including the amazing pineapple burger. On a side note, they didn't have a kids menu but there were some easy choices for kids including a plain burger and chicken sandwich. Although they were full price ~$9.

This is a great choice in downtown.

I'm so glad we found this lovely open-air restaurant right after we arrived. Pineapples has a great atmosphere, open-air on a busy street corner, a live musician played both nights that we dined there and was so entertaining. The menu had a great variety of fresh dishes and they run a special every night as well. Tropical cocktails were delicious and really made the tropical dining experience complete. Our server was top-notch both nights as well. She was prompt, friendly and sincerely cared about her tables. We loved it so much the first night, that we returned the second night and enjoyed it just as much. To top off the great experience, the prices were very fair.

Great atmosphere- set on a busy street corner. Looks extremely promising. If you want Hawaiian tourist food this is the place. Looking for some thing more authentic, than I suggest you go elsewhere. Decent entree sized portions, but the best part of our meal was the over priced scallop appetizer. $13 for 6 small scallops. Not the best food but definetly not the worst.

My friend and I went to this restaurant and it was amasing!! My friend has been a cook for over 15 years, she has been able to tell me that the sauce was home made with quality wine. It was really good!! Cheesecake was really good too. I really recommand it to anyone.
