The first visit here was fantastic. We went on Taco night and they were great. Taco's were served with black beans and Spanish Rice. Service was great, and the evening special was just 12.95 from 5:30 til 6:30. We figured on going back 2 night later and called to see what the evening special from... read more

We stopped for lunch and although the place was packed, we got prompt service. The food was excellent- Waldorf salad, Reuben sandwich, chicken sandwich. The mushroom soup was particularly yummy. Would eat here again!

Hanalei is a great little town for tourism - kitschy shops, gorgeous beaches, cool clear ocean, and many lunch spots. This is our favorite that we revisit each trip. Specials are posted on an old fashioned chalk board on the wall. Nice touch. The food is not fussy or elaborate, but fresh and simple. There are some interesting sauce and... More

We had dinner here one evening. The menu is fairly basic - burgers, fish & chips, pastas, seafood, chicken, steak, etc. Nothing was bad but nothing was that memorable either. The bar and large screen TVs dominate the main room but sitting outside wasn't an option because they don't serve alcohol there. OK in a pinch but not a place... More

Ultimate Kauai Guide and they recommended Hanalei Gourmet. Located in the old school in Hanalei across from the Ching Young Village. We ordered the special,Fish & Chips... More

I've been to many dining establishments on the North Shore from the hotels to the burger joints. The Hanalei Bay Gormet is my favorite place hands down. They have a nice mix of locals and tourists. It's not a tourist trap like some places where they will soak you for a $10 Mai Tia full of ice because it was... More

This quaint restaurant occupies two classrooms of the original Hanalei Elementary School. While the restaurant itself can be noisy at peak lunch time and the space is cramped, the food is good. The Marlin Fish and Chips was one of the best I've ever eaten! Next door to the dining room is the deli.

Judging by the fact that we wound up going back every single day of our trip and eventually tried a good portion of the food on their menu, I have to give 5 bubbles. The burger was amazing. Among the best burgers I've ever had.

Cramped quarters but decent food make for an average lunch spot. Nothing truly gourmet but the fries are awesome! Popular place makes for limited seating availability.

We had several meals and the food is good and very reasonable. Highly recommend the fish taco's, fish and chips, and coconut shrimp. Burgers are good if you like them cooked well done. Recommend stopping here for one of your dinners.
