“Looks can be deceiving. A wonderful place!”
Reviewed October 16, 2011

From the outside, it is just a small storefront. However the dining area goes thru to the back where you can sit on an open air patio with a bit of an ocean view and the ocean breezes through the trees. The food was terrific, with special little touches like roasted garlic and basil on the fries. We both liked the food but it was the service and ambiance that made this cute little place stand out. $40 for lunch of 2 burgers, an order of fries and one glass of juice. Seems high but typical for the big island, I imagine. A must stop when going south from Kailua-Kona!

“Awesome burgers”
Reviewed September 27, 2011

This place was such a pleasant surprise as we thought it would be a dive but instead it had a nice dining room with awesome burgers, fries and onion rings. We ate there our first night and liked it so much we went back again a couple of days later.

“Yummy!”
Reviewed September 20, 2011

Not the most inspiring of locations, till you see the view from the back terrace!
but undoubtedly this place serves good food with a smile. We visited a couple of times and i tried both the veggie and fish options and my friend the meat versions, all were tasty.
They also do great onion rings and milkshakes :)

“The best buger on the Big Island”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

Annie's is an outstanding casual restaurant located about 15 minutes from Kona.
We have eaten there no less than 7 times over the last year. It's that good.
The onion rings are some of the best I have ever had. The homemade sweet potato
chips are wonderful and of course the burgers are outstanding!
The service is friendly and fast.

“So fresh!”
Reviewed August 26, 2011

This restaurant uses uber-fresh ingredients and produces some of the most delicious food we've found in Hawaii. To top it off the preparation of the food is simple, but inspired, and the service is friendly and prompt.

The restaurant is very clean and comfortable. The big open windows at the back let in the breezes and sounds of birds and frogs, but are screened to keep any insects out. :) Both times we've been here the servers were super friendly and efficient.

The onion rings are awesome, as is the potato salad. Try the chocolate pudding. You won't be sorry!

The fresh catch sandwich with a light wasabi dressing is perfect and not overpowering.

I can't wait to go again.
