The best reason to go to this place is because it’s a very local place with a very laid back feel. A couple... read more

This hole-in-the wall place is frequented by locals and snowbirders. It's nothing fancy, but the service is friendly and the food is great. There's quite a range of options, so you never know what you'll find. Their menu has standard Hawaiian plate lunch fare (like slow-cooked pork with mac salad and rice). When someone has caught some fresh fish, their... More

We had a nice meal down at Guys Grinds on the Friday night, the band was amazing and added a lovely vibe while dining outside. - Try the Banana Split! Yum

I ordered food to go when I got there it was not ready then it was cold and there was a cockroach in my meal. Go at your own risk. When I complained Guy the owner went off on me, it was scary, I think he needs the health department and a attitude adjustment.
