The Kailua pork is as good as it gets and the wahoo was well prepared. Desserts are freshly made and worth saving room for.

We went here for lunch and liked it so much we came back for dinner. Great mix of Island specialties and good portions. Best of all, this bartender makes the best Mai Tai's, Pina Coladas, etc.

This is a popular, casual restaurant which I found to offer good food in a somewhat crowded and very noisy environment. Of our party of four, three agreed that the food was decent enough, but I can't recall a time when I had service this poor. This waiter was so bad he should really find a new way to earn... More

Went with family for dinner while visiting lava flow. Prices a bit on the steep side for the area, but food overall was tasty. They were busy so service a bit spotty but were very accommodating when they came by. Good place for dinner if in the area and don't want to drive to Hilo.

First, the good: the local Hamakua salad was excellent and the service was very good. The live music was excellent. The not so good: the sesame crusted ono was dry and over-cooked. It had the appearance, taste and feel of an entry that had been prepared in advance then nuked or re-heated before plating . . . possibly even frozen.... More

It's pricy compared to Luquins, Thai, or Pizza, but it is a VERY good restaurant. We have never been disappointed in the years we've lived on the East Side. And you'd better get reservations! We alsi love the local musicians they feature, and often try to sit near them.

Kaleo's offers an extensive menu in a high energy place with live music. We will definitely go back when we again visit the big island.

Visit this place in mid December last year. The food was nice. I order - can't recall the name of the menu - a kind of chicken which turns out tasted quite sweet, but they serve it with rice (so I won't complain as an Asian (;). Place was okay. One plus point is because they had such a hug... More

We had coconut shrimp and the blackened mahi mahi blt. Both really good. Our server was not the best, he kept giving the wrong bill to a few different tables, including ours, but the food was really great. Perfect spot for lunch in between Hilo and the various coastal spots and beach parks.

The setting and environment was really fantastic and they had the one of the best restaurant performers I've seen. The food on the other hand was absolutely terrible.
