About Merriman's Big Island
Twenty-Five years ago, no one dreamed of growing vine ripened tomatoes, fresh sweet corn or crisp baby lettuce in Hawaii. Sugar cane and pineapple plantations dominated the farming landscape, and most food was shipped to Hawaii from thousands of miles away.

Chef Peter Merriman had a vision for the growth of local agriculture and the potential of Hawaii’s rich volcanic soils. He along with twelve other prominent chefs encouraged farmers to grow local fruits and vegetables, raise meats locally, and start a healthier more sustainable Hawaii.

Peter Merriman is proud to be known as the pioneer of the Hawaii Regional Cuisine Movement, and feature authentic Regional Cuisine at Merriman’s Restaurants on Maui, Kauai and the Big Island.

Showcasing 90% locally sourced menus of fresh line caught fish, grass fed meats and Hawaii grown produce, the authentic flavors of Hawaii await you at Merriman’s, The Home of Hawaii Regional Cuisine.

It's good to make a reservation when going to Merriman's because it's always busy. We went for lunch and had the Ahi Poke, Cheeseburger, Island Fish Tacos, and Waipio Taro Enchilada. They were all good, but the best thing I ate was the Waialua Molten Chocolate Purse dessert. If you love chocolate you must absolutely try this amazing dessert.
