A lot of people really like this place. I was not so pleased with the food. Kinda more cafeteria taste to me. Waitress was very nice. Good value. Just my opinion, my husband really liked coming here.

Food was terrible and so was the service. Our waitress was extremely rude from the moment we sat down.. would have been better off going to McDonald’s.

Really cold beer at a fraction of what it cost at a resort hotel. Outdoor seating. Limited menu- but good and with a huge potion. Enjoyed watching the boats. Hidden find.

Harbor House had an amazing ambiance and we all enjoyed our meals. After eating, we all agreed- it was good, but it would not make our Big Island Must Stop List. The price was right and the food was good.

Head out of town, back north toward the airport. Take a left for Honokohau Harbor at the spotlighted intersection. Harbor House is in the first little group of shops on your right.
