We were in search of the Parker Ranch Museum, which several sites stated it was in the Parker Ranch Shopping Center. Unable to find it, we decided to stop in at the Parker Ranch Store. Greeting us in the entry way was the owner of The Broiler Restaurant. He asked if he could help us. After giving us great advice (the museum has been closed for years), we decided to have lunch at the restaurant. We were not disappointed! My husband had the loco moco special and I had the brisket sandwich. We both enjoyed our selection; even purchased 2 bottles of their barbeque sauce....some of the best we've ever had! In all, we enjoyed our visit to The Broiler and do plan to return when we're in town again.

Three of us had dinner here, it was okay but not fantastic. I thought my steak was a bit on the fatty side but the taste was good and the other meals were fine too. The desert definitely let them down, by the time we ate there was one choice ... strawberry cheesecake with not a strawberry in sight. The base was fine, there was a definite taste of mascarpone cheese but the topping was strawberry jelly! Hey ho, maybe they're just not big on deserts but the waitress was pleasant and attentive. We visit Hawaii most years, will we return to eat here? maybe.

This was our first stop at the Broiler and it won't be our last! We were welcomed like family into a lovely setting with an amazing fireplace which made for a very cozy and relaxing atmosphere. The service was friendly and prompt. The food was excellent! Husband had the special of furikake crusted ahi with salad and I had the brisket (braised for 12 hours) with a fabulous BBQ sauce. They had no problem with accommodating our dietary restrictions. We will be back!

We were traveling through a lovely small town up in the ranch country of the Big Island and were hungry for a steak dinner after eating seafood the first ten days of our vacation. A local person suggested The Broiler and we were not dissapointed. In fact the steak was great and perfectly cooked as one might expect but what surprised us was the quality of the seafood. Try the Ahi Tuna Tower as an appetizer which was so creatively presented and delicious you might just order two. Next we tried the surf, turf and bird special which was a huge amount of food and the fried calamari which was excellent. The burgers are also made to order so you can design your own and my friend who was traveling with us said it was awesome. One cool hint is we were lucky to go on Tuesday night where young kids eat free so if you are traveling with the young ones this will be a very cost effective option on a Tuesday night.

We found this to be a very good choice if you are looking for a steak dinner on the big island. The service was friendly and prompt. Their Caesar salad was fantastic. The steaks were good although a little thinner than we're used to. It wasn't very busy either of the 2 times we went. Atmosphere is casual/cowboy. The food was consistent both times. It was raining in Waimea both times we were there and they had a fire in the fireplace.
