Simple, fresh and friendly meals on offer here. I had the fresh grilled mahi mahi sandwich and my partner the kalua pork sandwich. Both of us were satisfied and the food delicious. Good iced tea!

Ono and Amberjack are my favorites. This is the best Ono I've eaten. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. Moist. Could not be any fresher. Simple place with that Hawaiian feel and Aloha service.

We were in the area for a late lunch and we're given this address from a local so we jumped at it. The food is good and prices very reasonable. Would stop buy again if I was in town.

The chef - Minnie- really knows how to prepare fish . The fresh Ono and ahi are excellent. The Friday night prime rib special was delicious. The staff is friendly and really makes an effort to accommodate even large groups. No one is afraid to move a table or two to get things right. An observation: community member or visitor,... More

We've been to a lot of places in the Hawaiian Islands, and we've eaten a lot of good food, but the best fish sandwich we've found is at Minnie's in Kapaau. Not only is this one of the least expensive fish sandwiches around, it is reliably the freshest as you can stand at the window and watch Minnie slicing the... More

The prices are amazing for the amount of fish. It is a walk uo counter. No wait help here but very good "local" food.

This is a place that is popular with locals with reasonable priced meals! We liked the close location to the Fluming da Ditch starting point.

Stopped here because of the Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Nothing fancy about the place but wonderful food and the most friendly people! The fresh fish of the day was Mahi Mahi and it was some of the best fish I have ever tasted. My wife loved her hamburger and the other couple both had the pork... More
