If you want a place that has good food, from local food to prime rib, this is the place to go. If you have a large party you might want to call ahead and make a reservation, or at dinner time you will be standing in line to get in. The employees are fast, courteous and they know there stuff. Always a good time while eating at Big Island Grill. They also have an awesome Mud Pie Dessert!!!

We have had breakfast and dinner here, no disappointments! Wide selection to choose from so you really can't go wrong. Service is on Island time so if you're in a rush or by hurry you may want to go elsewhere. If you're looking for a good meal at a very relaxed pace, then this is THE place!

Wonderful food and not too pricey. We went with friends who were vegetarian and there was lots of options for them. Best fish and chips I have had in a long time. Good food.

Every trip to Kona we try to eat at Big Island Grill. The friendly, welcoming service makes the visit special. The grill serves a local food menu, with daily specials. My wife ordered the chicken katsu plate, you get two side dishes. I ordered the loco moco, you get your source of meat, hamburger patty, chicken katsu, Portuguese sausage, spam are among your choices. But the best thing about their loco moco is the absolutely best brown gravy. No mix here. BTW, the server read my mind and brought me extra gravy. Best lunch in Kona.
