Stopped here on way to Blue Hawaiian volcano flight. Lucky find. The loco moto used good beef and an egg on a tasty fried rice. Ono platter came with a good salad and bland brown rice. Lots of locals eating here.

This was recommended to us from local friends. Very good range of food, it wasn't expensive. It was just a nice place with tasty food. Not fine dining but great food.

We stopped here before going to the airport, based on some locals recommendations. Not disappointed! It was quiet, food came fast, and was good...a nice plate dinner.

Good food from soup to main entre and desserts. Great place for family gatherings or any home cooked meal for 2 people. Quick service with a smile. Wide selection on the menu to choose from. Stopped in on a rainy day and ordered the won ton soup combo (teriaki pork and macaroni salad), and the loco moco. The portions are... More

I chose to eat here based on all the reviews. I do not understand how everyone is rating this place so good. I ordered a chicken dish. The chicken was so fatty that I could not eat it. The rice was dry. My husband ordered the same as I did. We ate a few bites and could not eat the... More

The first time I had one of these, I thought I wouldn't like it. A friend recommended it, so I gave it a try. It's excellent! Kuhio Grille is known for a lot more than burgers, though. Seafood, salads, poke, etc. are all very good. Service is excellent, but make a reservation if you're planning on dining during dinner hours.

If you want a clean restaurant to eat, diner style with most items you usually eat, than this is the place. If you get there before 8am there is usually a breakfast deal. If you want lunch, you can get a great burger meal with Chocolate shake!

Not sure what all the fuss is about, but this place was packed the night we ate there. Maybe it is the convenience of the location or the prices, but I honestly felt the food was below average. Not just basing opinion on what I had which was simply a chef salad (which was just ok), but the oyako donburi,... More
