This little hole in the wall has great food and generous servings. There is very little space to dine in so take out is probably the best option.

I haven't been back to Kauai Island Grill for quite a number of years, mainly because we just aren't in the area that much. But we needed to catch lunch and head over to a destination nearby, so we decided to stop by and try them out again. I didn't recall anything really negative about the last time I was... More

Rude owner, terrible food, lowest quality meats, just awful. I lived in Hawaii, and this is garbage. It is not just a question of being poor Hawaiian food, this garbage would be bad under any label. DO NOT EAT HERE.

A friendly family run establishment serving the best Hawaiian food in town. One of the few Hawaiian restaurants serving laulau and on Friday and Saturday they have poke (something I pick up each Friday for a tasty weekend snack). I have eaten her at least weekly for years and have yet to be disappointed in their food. The only drawback... More

This is a small family run restaurant run by some really wonderful people. I live in the neighborhood. I eat here about three times a month. The food is always Great. The service is always very friendly and welcoming. The prices are very reasonable. If you are "painfully trendy" or expect a McMeal in 90 seconds or less - this... More

Having been married to a "Local Girl" for over 30 years, I have had many different styles of "Local Hawaiian" food. We have been coming to Kauai Island Grill for years and never had a bad meal. In fact of the several so called Hawaiian restaurants in the Portland metro area, we feel this is the best. They do not... More

Been coming here for many years. The family that runs the place is always so friendly and nice. They always remember us and our usual orders. The food is awesome and always cooked just right. Come visit this local establishment.

Best place to eat when away from islands. Serving very generous and onolicious. Staff very friendly and makes you feel at home. Don't know what the other guys were talking about but will tell all locals to go to Kauai Island Grill when in Oregon and missing home. Owner makes you feel like Aunty is taking good care of you....

I have gone to Kauai Island Grill about 3 times the food is so so , but not great. However I have decided not to go back due to the service. There is a short wahine girl that looks like she is in her late 30's, who has waited on us numerous times, and is absolutely the WORST waitress I... More
