You’re absolutely correct on those two spots. the one by the boats is the Harbor Grille and has darn good American food and cold beer to boot.
the other place has good Hawaiian style food but too sweet and greasey for me. others flock to this place. being a Southerner I can’t stand sweet BBQ etc or basically any BBQ west of Alabama.
hey lets not forget big island grill,great place to eat and good prices.also kona plate ,by the pizza joint ,down from the drug store parkin lot.2 good places for food while in kona.and the at the marina,great fish and chips and burgers while your watching the boats come back.mic
Adhering to road food guidelines for good and unique food at reasonable pricing I have tested and submit the following spots on Hawaii due to uniqueness and ambiance and darn good grub. Please feel free to add to this list in the forum as it will be constantly updated due to high turnover on Hawaii. Some are more pricey than others but all offer above average dining experiences. Mahalo!
