Hawaii’s Very First Seafood Restaurant Has Literally Been Around Forever

The Hawaiian Islands are steeped in history, from the first Europeans visiting the islands in 1778 and the establishment of the Kingdom of Hawaii in 1795 to Hawaii’s admittance to the United States of America in 1959. And while we love a good history lesson as much as the next person, sometimes we would rather experience that history for ourselves, perhaps at one of the island’s oldest seafood restaurants?

The Seaside Restaurant & Aqua Farm is located at 1790 Kalanianaole Ave., Hilo, HI 96720, and is open Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 4:30 to 9:00 p.m. For more information, visit their website.
