I'd probably give it a 3 or 4 for atmosphere because it can be incredibly noisy but the meal was perfect. Scallops and coconut shrimp. This was the best food we had in 10 days on Kauai.

The restaurant has a very casual atmosphere but the food is excellent. I had the Fresh Catch a fish called Hemi which I had never heard of before. I loved it and the vegetables served with it were crisp and tasty. The Caper Mushroom and Wine sauce on the fish was superb. Friends had the Scampi they didn't skimp on... More

Stopped for an early lunch with my wife. She ordered a chicken salad in a papaya. I ordered a bowl of soup and a Waldorf salad. After about 5 minutes the waiter returned and apologized that they had no papaya. She then ordered the chicken salad sandwich on wheat bread (she always orders wheat or a whole grain bread). We...

Have lunch here most days. Fresh food, good service, very friendly and welcoming staff. I'd have to say my favorite spot for lunch, hands down.

We had the fish and chips, and the shrimp scampi. Both were good but would like to have seen more than six shrimp, especially for the price. Cocktails were very good, service was fair.

Had one lunch and one dinner here. Salads better with chicken or fish. Service ok. If it's full gets noisy. About 4-5 draft beers on tap. Located in old school house. Our lunch shrimp sandwich great.

Another recommendation from our concierge at the St Regis. Hanalei is a very sleepy, tiny town but really cute. We stopped here for lunch after doing a short hike. Food was fresh and service was friendly. A really nice stop for lunch in an adorable town.

Great bunch of folks work here!Looks like a little deli from the outside so we missed it out first trip to Hanelei. Second trip we discovered there is a great bar with a fantastic crew when you look closer. The atmosphere is friendly and laid back and the food is casual and quite good with daily specials and fresh fish.... More
