Reviewed 6 August 2013

Had lunch with family after spending a few hours at the observatory, friendly staff and a very clean facility, great views out the entire dining floor, would certainly visit again.

“A Good Lunch”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

We had lunch at the Sky Garden Restaurant while visiting the museum. We ordered off the menu rather than partaking of the buffet. The food was plentiful and the patty melts were huge! There are 3 large viewing windows, which also gives you a lot of light. Service was quick and efficient.

“lunch buffet, the view was nice.”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

The lunch buffet is around $12. Make reservations because there are lots of tour groups who shuttle in and out. The BBQ pork and salt & pepper shrimp were the only notable items. The selection is not that great only a small salad bar and hot line w/ about 8 items. No beef or fish dishes and very little dessert options. The pot-stickers and other Chinese dishes were really bad which is weird considering the website boasts that the Chinese owners are "noted Hilo restaurateurs". At least the service was good and the view was nice.

“Out of this world.”
Reviewed 10 April 2013 via mobile

Excellent salad bar and lunch buffet. The dinner buffet is also great. Eat an early lunch, since it gets quite busy when the tour groups stop by.

“Very relaxed atmosphere...”
Reviewed 9 March 2013

Awesome Buffet... Make sure to call for reservations on Thursdays and Saturdays. That's when they normally have Crab Legs on the Buffet line. The buffet has a variety: peppered shrimp, crab legs, roasted chicken, to name a few! Includes a very unique selection of items in the Salad Bar: carrots n raisin salad, cold noodles, poke, broccoli n raisins-very delish!, several choices of Desserts, and drinks. Seating is on time if you have reservations. Service is excellent! Very relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff.
