We love fresh fish and decided to stop here on recommendation of others -we weren't disappointed. The fresh fish of the day was ahi (tuna) and we ordered it seared so it was rare inside-it melted in your mouth! A very reasonable price too and served with a smile by Minnie herself. Take the drive up here and enjoy the... More

What a great little place! My husband and I were exploring the north end of the island, and this place stood out in the Trip Advisor reviews, so we gave it a try. We both tried the fish-of-the-day sandwich, a yummy piece of Ono with the fixings. The service was friendly, and we really enjoyed sitting at a window table,... More

The lunch we had here was one of the best meals we had on the island. So simple and delicious. We had the Korean Chicken & Mahi Mahi Mixed Plates and they were sooooo good. The owner was incredibly friendly and warm. Highly recommended.

I had the fish of the day burger for lunch (the fish was Ono today). It was very good. The service was also good and the staff were friendly. It is a relaxed atmosphere. You order at the window and they bring your order to you. Both indoor and outdoor seating is available. Eat at Minnie's. You will be happy.

I liked the fish and the relaxed atmosphere. It has a very relaxed atmosphere and a small menu but very tasty.

We eat out a lot, high end restaurants, hotel restaurants, ethnic restaurants, the list goes on. Every now and then a "favourite " pops up, usually by happenstance, just one of those moments where we say let's try this place. In this case it was "Sammys" a few years ago. The same place became Minnies, of course ther's a good... More

If it's time for lunch or dinner and your in Havi. Don't stop, keep going north to Minnie's, open for lunch and dinner Monday through Friday. Minnie's serves authentic Plate Lunches, service was great.

Were else can one go to get prime rib and lobster for $30pp? Every Friday the ladies at Minnie's serve up huge plate fulls of this meat/fish duo. But wait, there's more! The fresh fish of the day, means just that! Fresh! Our cottage is nearby, so every morning we walk by to say "Aloha" to the girls. At 10am... More
