Casual fun place, great fish.

My husband and I had a really nice dinner here in July. It was very crowded when arrived but we happily waited at the bar for a table. My husband had a beer and I had glass of wine. Both were nice and cold. The bartender was really friendly and quick. I wish I could remember her name but she... read more

We stopped in for a light dinner. You can dine outside on the porch but if you do you can't have any alcohol with your dinner. If you want a drink, you have to dine inside where the bar is located. We dined inside so I could have a Mai Tai with my dinner which was properly prepared and reasonably... More

The portions here are HUGE. I recommend sharing an entree unless you are starving. The food itself was just good, hence the 4 stars. Small place, but friendly staff and a kids menu for families.

The service for us was pretty decent. Seated quickly and attended to. I liked the space with wooden benches and perfect for a beach town like Hanalei. But I felt like I was back at college drinking a beer and eating flavorless fried food. Got the burger which wasn't seasoned and the crab cakes which (being biased from the east... More

The food was delicious but the service was slow and the servers were not pleasant. I ordered a veggie burger and fries. The fries were ice cold and it took about 10 minutes to locate our server and 30 or more minutes to bring me the fries. Had to eat my burger and everyone else at my table had finished... More

I shared the artichoke dip along with a Waldorf salad and fish sandwich with my husband. It was more than enough food. Everything was great, service was great, and we were happy we followed the Yelp reviews and stopped in.

Situated in the old Hanalei elementary school, this is a go-to place for sandwiches and burgers. Daily specials and soups, which are almost always really good. A nice bar with a mix of locals and tourists, very casual, not very big, sometimes a bit noisy, in a good way. A few outdoor tables, but no booze outside. Family friendly, good... More

the restaurant is open late for the lunch. it is a small restaurant but it is a very light room. it is easy to go there with kids, the suggestions around soups, sandwiches, salads, pasta and burgers are enough to find something with taste.

Loved, loved, loved this restaurant! The menu is very diverse, the foods are fresh and flavorful, and, the prices were great! We were there one evening and they had some live music as well. This is a great spot for a bite while visiting the beautiful Hanalei.
