4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

Ate here twice on consecutive nights, the first time on a recommendation from our B&B. Good with some emphasis on locally grown, good service.

“Great Food on the east side of Hawaii”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

We stayed near Pahoa for a week and this was the best food we had in the area. It's very unassuming but the service was great as was the food. We had nice wine, an ahi tuna appetizer, organic greens in wonderful salads, New England Clam Chowder with Ahi tuna, followed by mahi tempura for me and grilled maui for my husband. Everything was wonderful and had there been more time we would have gladly gone back again. Pahoa is also worth seeing--an eclectic little town.

“Must go! Excellent food and music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

Perhaps the best food we ate on the entire island! Great seafood and kalua pork, inventive dishes (we had ahi sliders with little Maui ferns on top and they were TO DIE FOR) and great ambiance. There was live music while we were there, which was also really nice. Prices were good for such a wonderful meal (around $100 total for 2 cocktails, appetizer, 2 entrees, and dessert) and we had 10% off from our B&B, Hale Moana! If you eat at one place on the East side of the island, this should be it. We loved it!!

“Great stopping place in S.E. corner of the Big Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Kaleo's Bar and Grill was recommended by Captain Shane on OceanTours. It is on the main road back to Hilo from Isaac Hales Marina Park. Parking lot guy was directing cars in the lot, opening doors, showing people inside, answering questions, etc. Busy dinner time, place was busy. Got seated on the lanai facing the road, beautiful weather and a nice feel to the place. The mediterranean platter and the fish and chips were nice. Coffee was fresh and tasty. Not the kind of location to drink alcohol and then drive, is there ever? But the area has dark and narrow roads, some were literally one lane. Service was knowledgeable and helpful.
