“Awesome barbecue...”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Stopped for lunch on 6/10/2014. We split the barbecue sampler ($24.00). It includes 2 ribs, sausage links, beef brisket & pulled pork, with sides of slaw and fries.

The sausage was a little too spicy for my taste, but everything else was beyond delicious. We ate every scrap of food on the plate. The amount & quality of food for the price is a super value in Hawaii.

Service was excellent. If you're looking for lunch in Waimea, you've found it. No need to search any further.

I should mention that the fish is very fresh. A fisherman pulled up to the front door, pulling his small boat behind his pickup truck. The cook went out to meet him in the parking lot. The cook inspected & weighed the day's catch, and then took his choices back through the dining room into the kitchen. Wow. Does it get any fresher anywhere? I think not.

“EXCELLENT BBQ and Great Service!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

We were taking a drive to see some of the sights and were driving thru Waimea a little after noon on a Sunday and saw this place. The name sounded interesting and the place looked decent from the road, so we turned around and decided to check it out for a bite to eat. Saw a BBQ sampler on the menu and thought it would make a great lunch - turned out to make a FANTASTIC dinner! There was SO much food! Which was good since we had flown into the Big Island the day before from the US East Coast and had only had a sandwich the night before, along with the cookies and juice on the plane and were still hungry. The pulled pork and beef brisket were the BEST we have ever had - and that is having eaten at some great BBQ places in Colorado, Texas and in the South! The home-made Andouille sausage was spicy, but not too hot - definitely better than anything we have bought in a grocery store and the the ribs were very good. Servers kept our ice tea glasses full. And the price was nothing more than we would have paid back on the mainland. Spoke with the manager and she said they try to buy as much local as possible. We even saw someone come in with fresh vine-ripe tomatoes (the stems were still bright green!) and she took them. This was the BEST meal we had all week on the Island and we had some good meals at other places!

“Excellent food and lovely staff!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

From my initial phone call to inquire if open, to the end of our meal, the staff at The Fish and the Hog were extremely kind and pleasant. The food was amazingly delicious and well priced. Three of us got pulled pork sandwiches and when I couldn't decide on the Paniolo BBQ sauce or the Li Hing sauce, darling Jeanne brought me a little of both to try. I loved BOTH!. The slaw was wonderfully savory and the fries were delicious. The triple layer chocolate cake we shared topped off the meal perfectly. We wanted to lounge in the comfortable atmosphere longer but we had to head home. Beautiful Jeanne waited on us with lots of aloha! Love her, the rest of the great staff and we hope to visit to try more of their fare soon!
