We decided to just "go next door" because we were tired and hungry. Boy were we surprised and pleased. The service is excellent. Friendly and super nice server. I ordered the bbq chicken with potato salad and rice and my husband had the fish and chips. Both portions were very large. My chicken was the best I had on the... More

We went here on Easter Sunday and they were having an all you can eat buffet with crab legs included. Everything on the menu was delicious, but the crab legs were the highlight. They were sweet, fresh and succulent. The waiter service was exceptional and the food just kept coming out fresh and was restocked without any wait time. Dessert... More

I have been so impressed with the cooking at the Coconut Grill that every year for my only evening in town I always eat there. Even if I do not stay at the Hotel on the premises. The staff is friendly, good value for the meal, and the taste of that glazed mushroom sauce over the rib-eye steak has nothing... More

Service was very friendly. I had the Kalbi ribs and they were the best I have had in 20 years of visiting the Islands. Had the free breakfast the next morning...basic (eggs, meat, taters, toast) and very good.

Shared a prime rib but it was only OK, not all that good. The stuffed potato was not very good, but the service was nice and friendly.

This restaraunt just felt uncomfortable to me. The way it is arranged and the lighting is depressing to me. The service was hit and miss. The older ladies were awesome. The young ladies acted like they were bothered by even asking for a refill on the tea. Imagine rolling their eyes and that look.

30 or so Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, who trained just north of Hilo before moving onto Thailand stayed at the hotel and had two special meals catered for us at the Coconut Grill. The food and service was excellent!

We stopped for lunch with friend and enjoyed a very good meal. Both the Pastrami Melt and Burger were great. Our friends had shrimp and fish tacos which they really liked. We would stop here again. Service was good and prices reasonable for the islands. They offered a salad bar but we didn't try it.

Large servings, but fresh foods and friendly service. Great for travelers of all ages and families with children.
