We went for dinner on a Saturday evening. I rate this as an average place to eat. It is a no frills place. Steaks are griddle cooked, and vegetables consisted of corn. Mashed potatoes come from the box. No free refills for sodas. Prices are acceptable but stick with the specials. It most likely is a good place for breakfast... More

I went there for dinner. They have a good menu selection. The prices are good. I had the hamburger. It was very good. I plan to go back before I leave the island.

3rd time on the Big Island and several trips to Kamuela for breakfast. The Paniolo Country Inn is the best place for a reasonably priced breakfast on the Island. We ate there for half the price of the hotel, and the breakfast was great! We will be back.

We stumbled across Paniolo Country Inn on a recent trip to the Big Island. As we drove back from the north coast, the skies were gray and moody. We were both hungry. We didn't know any of the restaurants in town, so Paniolo seemed as good a choice as any. Truthfully, there was something inviting about the place. The inside... More

We went around 3PM for lunch, and the place was completely empty, However, that did not dissuade us. We ordered grilled chicken and steak. Needless to say the steak was an A and the chicken a B-. If you are going to a steak house, order steak. The food arrived promptly since we were really hungry, and we had a... More

We try to frequent this local restaurant. It's basically the best place to eat in Waimea. They offer a variety of dishes and they also have a bar.

We went to the Paniolo (cowboy) Country Inn about a week ago for breakfast. It was our first stop before the annual Paniolo Parade. It's a huge, popular restaurant with good, home cooked food. I had a half eggs benedict with rice rather than hash browns. Yumm. There were five of us. Service was quick and courteous,

We stopped in here on our way to Hilo from Kona. Great basic breakfast offering, kids enjoyed as well. The French toast was great! They also had some homemade cookies for sale at the counter and we picked up a few for the road. Would have grabbed more if I knew they were so good.
