The buffet is one of the very few buffets in Hilo. Great location for those coming in by ship or staying at the hotel. Lots of locals, too.

Food is amazing however when you first walk in the customer service is Horrible a lady walks you to your table and then leaves without saying anything.But when your done they help out a lot.

The food was pleasurable, wasn't cheap, but was not expensive either. Did not seem to be the most popular place to eat as the tables were quite empty. The meal was good and service was excellent. Having the Mahi, I would say it was cooked to long, but their chief would say differently, due to wanting to get the color... More

We've been here twice for the Hawaiian Seafood Buffet. We enjoyed the buffet thoroughly the first time we were here on a Saturday night. The Lomi Lomi salmon, poi, sashimi, crab legs... everything was on point. We decided to indulge in the buffet again for Valentine's Day...celebrating on a Sunday. The Lomi Lomi salmon wasn't as good (not as much... More

Did the weekend buffet. Food and service was great. Just not $50 worth. If you are someone who feels they can digest this much food, this is the place for you. Food is 4star. With the price, I give it 3star.

We were staying at the Hilo Hawaiian in January 2011. This is the hotel restaurant. We missed out on the breakfast buffet which looked pretty good. We were only here for 4 days. We managed to have dinner here once after a long day of activities. Nice to have a restaurant on site on days where you come back tired... More

We ate at the Queen's Court during a stay in Hilo. It's not the greatest food we experienced on our Hawaiian adventure, but it is quite good for buffets. Man, was the place jumping in the middle of the week, too. It must be the must-go restaurant for large groups. Each protein,starch, salad, and so on was really pretty well... More

Went to Queen's Court for our annual Family/Employee appreciation blast. This year we made our reservation in September, just to make sure we got in. Last year we waited too long, had to eat at Coconut Grille...big disappointment. RESERVE EARLY. The food is awesome, The whole pig was almost gone when we got there.

This is the place to go for an up-scale buffet with wonderful assortment of well prepared foods. Guessing over the years we have eaten at the Hilo Hawaiian may 10 times and don't recall a time when the meal wasn't worth the high price. It had been several years since the last time we went to the Hilo Hawaiian but... More

We stayed at the Hilo Hotel, Nd going downstairs to the breakfast ended up being more convenient than going out. They have an assortment of proteins, pastries, and fruits. The service was on point and the coffee on my table was always filled. We will be eating there for our final breakfast in HI today. I believe the cost for... More
