“good for a quick bite”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

You order at the counter-loved that the gal had a sense of humor-go outside to five tables under a lanai. They bring the food. I had Ono poke, my first. It was quite good, came with rice and a salad for $10. Hubby had the lobster tacos, naked, which were in a sauce, so where naked comes in I am not sure. you get your own water, and bus your table. Good for the price for sure.

“Great roadside grub near the end of the road.”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

Fish tacos were excellent, so were fish and chips, and quesadilla. Staff was very nice. Perfect stop for a bite after zip-lining at Kohana.

“Great Island atmosphere.”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Happily stumbled upon this little establishment on a drive north on the big Island. Very laid back, outside seating. Very small but the menu reasonably priced and included fresh fish. I had the Mahi and my wife the fish taco.... Took a little time but in fairness they were pretty busy with takeouts plus the sit downs. Fish couldn't have been fresher and was cooked perfectly. Very laid back, low key kinda place........ I can't wait to return.
Like the sign says, We're open at 9am, or maybe 10.........at least by noon......
