No matter how badly you think you need to go to a sports bar while in Hilo, don't go to Cronies even though it appears to be the only one. It's your basic sports bar: lots of TVs and uniforms on the walls. The menu items that aren't your basic bar fare are pretty good (e.g., pork rolls). The basic bar fare is mediocre. The main problem is service. I've been trying to think of a term that conveys how awful the service was (terrible, atrocious). We had to hunt down a server every time we wanted anything, from water to food to refills to the bill. Almost as disappointing was the signature bucket of fries. Servers delivered heaping buckets of fries that looked like a good deal. It wasn't. The bucket had a false wax paper bottom that made the quantity of fries far less than appeared.
