Hilo Bay Cafe – Downtown Hilo

Address:  123 Lihiwai Street, Hilo HI 96720

Website:  www.hilobaycafe.com.  Closed Sundays

As shown in the picture, below, the restaurant is nothing to look at.  Pretty much a rectangular building up on stilts.  The inside isn’t much better as the tables are in a few rows straight down the building.  The first picture, below, is the main reason I go.  The food is the second reason.  If you go, go early and get outside seating.  It is in the rear of the building.  It provides a great view of Hilo bay and downtown.  If you can’t get outside seating, I wouldn’t bother going here.  It is the only restaurant I know which has views as nice as these.  As you can see from my other posts, the weather and the views are just too nice to sit inside.  I love a place where you can enjoy being outside with a view.

The food is great.  We have yet to order anything that wasn’t excellent.  The service is nice and friendly.  As you can see from the menu, it isn’t cheap.  You can also go just for drinks and appetizers.

  1. Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!

  2. The very core of your writing while sounding agreeable originally, did not sit perfectly with me personally after some time. Someplace within the paragraphs you actually were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a short while. I however have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and one would do nicely to fill in those breaks. When you actually can accomplish that, I would surely end up being fascinated.

  3. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
