“Delightful way to energize for your next foray”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

Annie's is relaxing, nice ambiance, built around a huge coconut tree, friendly service, yummy bar drinks, fantastic burgers of all sorts. The portabella mushroom burger is still my favorite! So far there is nothing I've tried that I don't like. Even the desserts delight.

“A little beef with your coffee tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

If you are in South Kona for coffee touring and have a hankering for a burger -- I highly recommend Annie's. We read about Annie's in the Avis Drive Guide that said "rated #1 burger" so we thought we would try it -- WOW! Fantastic service, great burgers, excellent purple potato salad. Yes, it may seem high to pay $14 for a burger but for the quality, atmosphere, and deliciousness I say "YUM" -- on the kid's menu the burger was $8.95 and my son ate the whole thing. Perfect stop in between coffee tastings/touring!

“Some special choices, interesting decoration, but the cook needs training”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

Once you get inside, you immediately see, that the restaurant tries to capture the (tourist) idea of a relaxed Hawaiian feeling inside the decoration. From the carved chairs to the palm trees growing through the restaurant it all seems to be a great island paradise. The server was likewise relaxed and friendly as well as fast.
The choices of burgers range from classical cheese and bacon to self made BBQ and onion ring. The cook however didn't manage to get the burgers to the requested points. My wife ordered hers medium well and got it more then well done, while my order of medium was close to well done. Also the buns would have been better if toasted a bit less. They have interesting local craft beers.
All in all a nice decoration but a better cook might give the right impression. Oh and no amex.

“Great Burgers & Fish & chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

We stopped in with our family after a morning of kayaking and it was perfect. Laid back, clean, good food. The burgers are tasty but so is the chicken sandwich and the fish and chips were fresh and delicious. Great casual place.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

While the staff was friendly and helpful, the food wasn't that great. I'm not sure what exactly happened, but my husband wanted a medium burger and ended up with a well done. I asked for medium well and mine was well done. Unfortunately, I've had better and it didn't cost near as much. The fries were good and my kids were happy.
