Original Hawaiian bacon

It’s simple, we’re the original home of fresh, homemade Hawaiian Bacon.

What Is Mai?

Relax and play a little because we’re chill like that. Be inspired to try something new at Hawai’i’s Original Bacon Hale (aka House of Bacon). Here, award winning Chef Allen Hess smart-sources local ingredients, infused with the same bold passion and fortitude used to prepare them. Have our signature house made Mai bacon, with a side of bacon. We triple dare you!

So, what is Mai? The better question is “who?”. She is the daughter of Chef/ Owner Allen Hess. Who better to represent this playful, down-to-earth, progressive concept than a child? She approves the Keiki (kids) menu & loves the bacon business too. The signature coffee-cured, hand cut, thick strips also carry her name.

Join us for breakfast or Sunday brunch overlooking the Waikoloa Beach Resort’s Kings’ Golf Course green. Enjoy a family meal inside the Waikoloa Beach Resort Golf Kings’ Clubhouse. Catch the game, gossip or news with a round of drinks at the bar (or, wander the grounds). Special events can party late night exclusively at this Waikoloa Beach Resort location.

Play more, see you at the clubhouse!
