Sometimes Yelp is true!

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

Minnie's restaurant, a hidden gem in the small village of Kapaau on the far Northern tip of Hawaii Island, an area called North Kohala. Minnie's in my humble opinion is by far the finest restaurant in our area for a variety of reasons. Literally everything is fresh, nothing frozen. The menu is limited which is just fine by me as...

I was looking for a place to grab lunch, and I figured I'd stop somewhere in Hawi. I drove by Minnie's and was attracted by their sign, which was an interesting tropical design with a bit of a graffiti motif. Being a Monday in a slow tourist part of the year it was quiet in the restaurant. Hospitality was fantastic,... More

Friday night at 6:00PM begins your adventure. This is definitely a locals restaurant because most tourist miss it. Friday night features prime rib and lobster for $30.00...best buy in the state. BYOB. Great service, great food, and always enjoyable to meet new friends and the lucky tourists who found it. Reservations on Friday night's a must as they sell out... More
