Located in the old Hanalei school, you may walk by without noticing this place. But stick your head into the friendly dining room to find a good mix of locals and tourists enjoying great food and drinks. Definitely one of our favorite places in Hanalei.

We have been coming back to this place every year for 10 years. Love the fish sandwich and fish n chips -- always made with fresh catch of the day. Nice local place with many choices and reasonable prices.

No, it's not gourmet food, but given the choices from Hanalei to Kapaa, it's one of the better food joints. Nothing fancy, but we liked the bar area, and it's in an old building that has all windows along the north and south walls, keeping it cool and refreshing. Good parking availability across the street. We had the Asian-style crab... More

Our server had just a great attitude and sense of humor. Looks like food would be down and dirty but was quite decent with some items being delicious.

We had a group of four for lunch here over the Christmas break. We had a wait of about 15 minutes and then were seated. I think that there is nothing in this restaurant to absorb sound. There are two TV's playing, a bar area and many tables with some tables outside for small parties. All I can say is... More

Great place for a rest from local shopping and sightseeing and by sitting at the bar you can learn all kinds of information about the local area. My wife and I have been twice on this trip and while we have only had appies, the food wa s good and the variety of local beer was excellent.

This is a restaurant and deli and great hangout. Small bar but nice ambiance and great town center. We had drinks here number of times as well as dinner.

We had a pretty good smoked fish platter, good drinks and ok service. One of our orders was wrong, but not worth sending back. Mac Nut fried chicken was fried boneless breast meat only, and it was $22, that's a lot for chicken strips. Burger was good, but they didn't asked me how it should he cooked, so I came... More

Honestly, we found Hanalei Goumet was about average and probably won't be going back. Service was ok. Food was ok. I had the fish n chips, which was supposedly swordfish but I have my doubts. My wife had the fish sandwich, my son a reuben sandwich, and my daughter a burger. It was all ok. No drinks, just water. $60.... More
