A perfectly 4 star food place. We stopped here while driving through Hilo and it didn’t disappoint. Nice staff and average food. Chicken tenders were great and place was big.

Usual average to poor food. Does have air conditioning which is a rarity in Hilo. New large screen televisions for game watching is nice. Typical meal in Hawaii about 20% overpriced

Pretty good burger, nothing life changing but I eat a lot of burgers and I'm pretty critical. Not terrible, just not awesome. Great service though.

Travelled from Australia landed in Hilo and found this little gem. They didn’t have Bacardi or southern comfort so I settled on Diet Coke to drink. We ordered onion rings, popcorn shrimp, chicken tenders, steak and shrimp and a cheeseburger. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Staff...More

We do not have the NHL package, but we do have the NHL network channel. We also show West Coast NHL teams playing on Fox sports or Comcast networks.
