Its kinda not the best looking place from the outside. The food was good and the service was as well. There is a lot of local folks so you hear the local chatter.

The best spot in Hilo to watch your favorite team and grab a beer. The sandwiches are all very good and go well with a decent selection of beers on tap and bottled.

Expansive hours, reliably good grill food, and good selection of beers. Usual sports decor, but you can find a quiet table away from the rowdier bar.
