We stopped into Harbor House on our way to Kona from the airport. The restaurant is in an industrial area right next to the Harbor. This is a no frills place. There is a good beer selection, and they advertise that it is the coldest on the island. I didn't have my thermometer handy, so I took their word for it, the beer was definitely cold. Food is typical bar fare with fried foods, sandwiches, a few entrees, and salads. I had the fish and chips, which was quite good. Another member of our party had a chicken salad that looked really tasty, piled high with chicken. Prices were very reasonable, and the wait service was good. Overall a good experience. If you want atmosphere, drive further down the road to the town, but if you want some good food and drinks at fair prices, this is a good spot!

On way in from or out to airport we ALWAYS stop. Great wait staff - some there for many years
Always some of the locals having beer at the bar
Seating near bar area or in open area. Seldom any wait, and if so it is short.
Fried anything is good
Chili/rice dish enough unless u r really hungry
Recommend

Ciao

We were sick of fancy food. We needed a dinner menu with the classics...no improvements on the hamburger or anything like that.

This place delivered! Our total bill was $35 and we each had an 18oz beer and an entree.

This is a simple sports bar on a marina crowded with locals doing their usual thing. Don't expect to be catered to like you would on a resort. This place is $100 real.

Great seafood restaurant serving fresh fish adjacent to the Honokohau Boat Harbor. You can watch the fishing boats come in with their catch of the day. Relaxing, enjoyable time.
