Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

Having just arrived on the Big island, my spouse and I were looking for somewhere to eat dinner. We found the Tropics Tap House as it was near where we were staying. Our server (Kennocha) was a little slow bringing our drinks and food (apparently on "Island time") and also a little odd, bursting into laughter when we asked where we might find a grocery store. Turns out there was one across the parking lot from the restaurant but we had arrived in the dark and didn't have any knowledge of the island. The calamari appetizer was very good, very different than any calamari we'd eaten before. We shared an order of fish and chips which was good. The beer and mai tai were good, too. Plenty of free parking is available

The food was delicious, and happy hour prices were good. The small hamburgers were perfect for the grandkids, and the adults tried every other Happy Hour selection. Pulled pork sliders were delicious, as was the caprese salad. Service was great, and the outdoor seating was nice for the whole family.

Stopped in to have a drink and snack. Great view to the west, Pacific Ocean. Bloody Mary was good beer was cold, but it was bar food. My nachos were so bad the waitress took them off the bill.

Stopped in for lunch. The BLT salad and the fresh fish sandwich were great. The service was great - thanks Kimi. Skip the bad food at the restaurant up the hill and come here for better food with lower prices.

We enjoy the fish tacos and the Kailua pork nachos at this place.
Happy hour 7days a week provides some of the least expensive food and drinks around. Pork sliders are delicious!
It’s pub food but better.
