Delicious fish sandwich

It was raining….. raining only like it can rain in Kauai on the wet side. We are talking DELUGE! We had plans, ya know, drive to Ke’e beach, pay our respects to the Hula heiau, ya know plans. But the rain encouraged us to find this place and have lunch. We didn’t have high of hopes and it turned... read more

We went to Hanalei Gourmet for dinner twice while visiting Hanalei. It's a small place with a casual, local feel. Good drinks. On our first visit for dinner they had live music which was great, but because of that the tables were not turning over very quickly so we had to wait a while. Our server seemed very tired and...

We stopped there on a rainy night. The first impression was a grumpy waitress. I had the fish and chips and my wife had a 1/2 Waldorf salad with grilled fish. Let's just say you aren't going to get filled up on the fish and chips. The fish was marlin and was ok, but there were three small fish stick... More

We came here for dinner last week on a weeknight, and sat outside. Just an FYI, if you sit outside, you may not order an alcoholic drink. That's fine for us. Also, we ordered the coconut shrimp and mussels as appetizers. Shrimp--amazing, great crunch, addicting pineapple sauce to dip with a kick. Mussels--meh, and you get only 6. For entrees,... More

Fresh, fresh, fresh--reasonably priced, solid drinks. Looks like a little deli but the quality of food is higher than that and their little bar has one of the best mountain views in Hanalei.

This place is great and so are the burgers. We shared a 1/2 lb. beef burger and it was more than enough. We got an outside seat and watched life pass us by on the Kuhio highway. The restaurant is in the old Hanalei school. We did not see Puff the Magic Dragon, as was out that day.

Just back from a great week in Kauai. We visited Hanalei on several occasions and our favorite dining and drinking hole was the Hanalei Gourmet. The staff was extremely accommodating in helping us find seats each time we arrived. The fish and chips were delicious. The Caesar Salad was incredible, too. Perhaps the best part of eating here is getting... More

The Hanalei Gourmet is a regular stop on our visits to Kauai and it never disappoints. The food is good enough. They have great fish and chips although we usually get the fresh fish sandwich. The main draw is the lively casual atmosphere where visitors mix with locals at tables and at the bar. There is usually some kind of... More

we had the fish and chips and wished we were across the street at Kalyspo. Also charge $2 for refills on coke. Also tried eggplant sandwich and not too good. Don't waste your time.

I liked the variety of food offer on the menu, as well as, the daily specials that they offered. The portions are good and I especially liked the shrimp scampi. Servers were very friendly and attentive. If you like your hamburgers other than well done, then I would not recommend having one here or, for that matter, most places on... More
