The ahi tuna on tortilla chips was amazing. My husband had beef and goat cheese tacos which were to die for. Loved the food and the service was great too.

Stopped here for some appetizers and drinks. It's definitely a relaxed place, as most of Hanalei is. The coconut shrimp were fantastic, probably my favorite.

We really liked the atmosphere here. We were seated within about 15 minutes, even though they seemed very busy. Our food arrived quickly, and we had great service. We split the fish tacos and an appetizer of the coconut shrimp, which was plenty since the portions are huge. The coconut shrimp was delicious. The slightly spicy thai sauce was perfect... More

Menu had a number of great choices to select from. Appetizers were on special and could make an entire meal. Drinks were perfect. Nachos and chicken skewers were perfect. Another person in our party loved the fish and chips.

We enjoyed our stay in this friendly local style restaurant where we ordered a fresh fish sandwich and two burgers ! Service was efficient and quick and the food was really good. A place we recommend if you are looking for a low key local atmosphere and a quick lunch for a reasonable price.

Our favorite restaurant in Hanalei. They offer fresh fish and island specialties in addition to the usual burgers and other bar fare. Open air dining which takes advantage of the trade winds coming off of Hanalei Bay. They offer locally brewed beers as well as imports by the bottle and domestic beers on tap. Don't miss Happy Hour! A good... More
