This rundown hole in the wall place must buy the local fishermans catch and clean it and put it up for sale. People come by to pick up whatever is fresh. They have poke too and it is good.

This is probably the freshest fish that can be had in Hawaii. The fish selection depends on what is caught and brought to the store in the morning. You will see fish being leaned as you walk into the store. Try the Ono and Opapaku, which are delicate white meat. I served ours with a hollandaise sauce. A must is... More

This third generation market has some of the freshest fish on Hawai'i. Located across from Kawaihae Harbor they have access to the freshest. Use caution and do not park where the boats come in to unload. They will cut ahi, mahi mahi and ono to order. They also have some of the best traditional poke that you can find.

Wow, so much to choose from and extremely reasonable prices. And did I mention fresh? And best of all, you're supporting locals, not outside corporations.

Ate at the food truck today for the second time because the Cajun mahi mahi is delicious as is the papaya dressing for the green salad! Good lunch stop.

Stopped by on Tuesday to see if they had any ceviche. I was told that they were a little short on Ono, but they should have some ceviche by the next day. I picked up a small tub of "California Roll" to tide me over. Went back on Wednesday and they did have ceviche, and still a little short of... More

Small selection but really fresh fish at teasonable prices. If you're staying anywhere in Kohala and want some really good fresh fish, this is "Da Place!"

This review is for the food truck parked outside. The fish was cooked well. The French fries were good, but the serving size was so small my 6 year old was asking for more. (Fish) For the price we pay vs.the price they pay the fisherman. The size should be larger. They could afford to give plenty more, and still... More

This is one of the only places where we buy fish on the big island, since we are never disappointed. The workers there happily answer questions on how to prepare and to cook the fish. They also have a great taco van in their parking lot!
