Have never had fresher or better tasting fish, prepared in their beer batter and deep fried. The Combo Shrimp Fish & Chips basket is also awesome. More than one person can eat!!! Try their Onion Rings, best in the world. Prices from $10 to $13 for five big pieces of Ohno fish or three shrimp and three pieces of Ohno fish. Local Kona beers on tap are great. Great wait staff.

Not just a small piece of fish and a glop of batter. Instead had nice size pieces with little batter. Five big pieces in an order. Excellent ribs and stuffed mushrooms - appetizer platter a great choice. Waitress left a lot to be desired.

So this place does not look like much from the outside. In fact it looks like a bit of beer hall dive, however as several locals had recommended it to us and it was close to our hotel thought what the hey. We were not disappointed. We sat outside in the beer garden (not sure if that is what they call them in the states), but it was lovely. The staff were super friendly and helpful with information on size of dishes and recommendations. We ended up ordering the tasting plate of entrees which consisted of 4 different dishes - buffalo wings in a gorgeous spicy sauce, squid (ok), teriyaki beef and some other seafood which for the life of me can not recall now. The size was ridiculous with a side order of fries and the accompanying sauce was the size of a soup. "Would you like some meat with your sauce sir?" We are still not accustom to American servings however a couple from Arizona on the table next to us also exclaimed surprise when their meal was placed in front of them. So a very relaxed and tasty experience however I would recommend ordering less than you think you need or alternatively do not eat for a few days prior to your visit.

We went there because I was dying from the humidity and wanted to go inside near the Courtyard for lunch. The restaurant touts that it has A/C...which is kinda true. There is one smaller room that is cooler, but it wasn't quite what I would say is air-conditioned. Food was fine, a little expensive (but you have to factor in the location). I may or may not go back, it was just so-so.
