My wife and I dropped in yesterday right at the peak of lunch time. All the tables in the restaurant were full, but we were seated immediately at a table in the bar. The service was non-stop great from multiple members of the staff. They were all very friendly and helpful. The hostess was awesome and even assisted us with drinks and our order.

We tried their Lilikoi iced tea and pineapple iced tea and both were great. We each had one of the highly recommended daily lunch specials by the hostess. My wife had a spicy Brie burger with jalapeños, bacon and crispy fried onions. Everything was great- the beef, the smooth creamy Brie, crispy bacon and spicy jalapeños. I had fresh caught Ono with Brussels Sprouts and Hamakua mushrooms, served over garlic mashed potatoes. The fresh and other ingredients were fresh and delicious- spot on!

I would highly recommend this as a lunch spot and if they serve dinner, I suspect the service and food would be on par then as well.

Awesome food! Best pulled pork sandwich I've ever had! Best food we had in Hilo! Also the speciality drink that comes in the pineapple is worth it, amazingly yummy!

We ate here two nights while on the Hilo side of the island. Being a family of 5, it is sometimes hard to find something for everyone. Pineapple's had something for all tastes and ages. The staff was very friendly and the prices are reasonable (for Hawaii!). While it was often busy, we never had to wait long for a table. Highly recommend going here!

This is a must stop when visiting Hilo, Hawaii. An open air restaurant and bar on a busy corner of old town Hilo, you are completely shielded from Hilo's frequent rains, but can watch traffic and pedestrians while feeling the cool ocean breezes. Food and drinks are good quality, prices decent (you ARE in Hilo!)

This place was picked on a whim and what a great choice it was. If you are a pineapple fan this place will be heaven. For a drink, i chose a pineapple/jalapeno margarita. That was so good. Sweet heat as they put it. Appetizer i chose half pineapple bbq half buffalo wings and again, did not let down. Delicious. For the main course i got a 6oz pineapple teriyaki burger. It was incredible. I would go back in a heartbeat!! Highly recommended.
