Shared a prime rib but it was only OK, not all that good. The stuffed potato was not very good, but the service was nice and friendly.

This restaraunt just felt uncomfortable to me. The way it is arranged and the lighting is depressing to me. The service was hit and miss. The older ladies were awesome. The young ladies acted like they were bothered by even asking for a refill on the tea. Imagine rolling their eyes and that look.

30 or so Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, who trained just north of Hilo before moving onto Thailand stayed at the hotel and had two special meals catered for us at the Coconut Grill. The food and service was excellent!

We stopped for lunch with friend and enjoyed a very good meal. Both the Pastrami Melt and Burger were great. Our friends had shrimp and fish tacos which they really liked. We would stop here again. Service was good and prices reasonable for the islands. They offered a salad bar but we didn't try it.

The price is high, $40+ each. We only ate there on Valentines Day. They had prime rib and crabs legs, service was poor, food was OK.

I ate here 4/5 mornings during my stay at the attached hotel. The breakfast was included with my stay and included 3 options from the menu. I tried all 3 and they included: 1) the local breakfast with eggs, meat, potatoes and toast. 2) healthy option with papaya bowl, oatmeal, strawberry yogurt and small piece of banana bread. 3) pancakes,...

We went here because it was close to our hotel and was recommended by someone from the hotel. We went at lunchtime and were only 1 of about 4 families in the whole place. Even though there was literally nobody here (should have been a clue) the service was slow and the food relatively bland. In a pinch we might... More

Dinner menu has a number of good local selections. My wife's New York strip was cooked properly. Kalbi ribs were tasty and well seasoned. We will be returning.
