The high point of our meal was that the Owner went to Virginia Tech, and one of our party lives in Virginia, and someone else there has a connection to the Arizona Cardinals, and we live there. Other than that, the "double pastrami" sandwich, the Reuben sandwich and the grilled chicken sandwich were entirely average. And, the french fries were... More

We ate here twice during our stay and both experiences were fantastic. We came the first time to try their fish taco special, which was extremely tasty! Lisa, our waitress, was so kind, upbeat, and on top of things. We left wanting to go eat here again. We were delighted to have Lisa as our waitress during our second visit.... More

We stopped here for lunch and it was wonderful. I had the crab cakes and truthfully, they were just ok, a little too bready and pre made. But the rest was wonderful. Nachos were great.

Everything is great! I always order the chicken salad sandwich either as a sandwich or in a papaya or and avocado boat! The fried artichoke hearts are a favorite, but they are hot and will burn your tongue if you don't wait. All of the fish specials have been great, too! The bar has quick service.

Set in the old Hanalei school building, Hanalei Gourmet is a laid back, casual spot with a straightforward menu: burgers, fish and chips, chicken tenders, salads. Good vacation food. The only Hawaiian element is the live music and the surf competition showing on the flat panel TV. Put your name on the chalkboard, and if it looks really long, know... More

Ken had the fresh Fish and Chips (EXCELLENT) and I had a delicious egg plant sandwich. Very friendly and laid back atmosphere.

We stopped by the restaurant on a busy night and added our name to the chalkboard mounted by one of the doors. Our wait for a table for four was not long. The food was very well prepared and good. The restaurant is usually busy and the bar somewhat noisy so don't expect a quiet meal...but the food is good... More

Waited quite while for a server to take our order. Waited a lot longer yet for the food to arrive. But once it got to us, my chicken sandwiches was very good with a nice sauce. Good cold beers,too!

we stop there often for a quick lunch or take out. It gets a little busy at times but if you're patient it's worth the wait. Friendly staff.
