This place seemed popular, but we did not care for it. It is kind of like an island grease pit. Being health nuts it was really not for us. the seating outside is really an issue too.

I stopped by Harley's twice during my visit. The first time, a female employee snapped at me that it'd be an extra dollar for ranch when I picked up my order. I handed her a dollar but she didn't ring it up as a sale or charge tax on it. I thought maybe she was just having an off day... More

Found this after eating breakfast at Eggberts one morning so we decided to come back and try for dinner that night. Glad we did. We got the Korean short ribs and teriyaki and we licked our plates clean. I'm a huge bbq fan, mainly traditional American bbq but I've had my share of Hawaiian Bbq and this was probably the... More

We ate here a few times while on the island. The food was excellent! Eat there or carry out. We did both. Loved the Korean Kalbi ribs.

This food hut will delight you with unbelievable flavors. Their Teriyaki sauce is homemade and simply wonderful. Beef, chicken, or pork with their teriyaki is a trip to heaven. One cannot go wrong with anything on the menu.

Great for take out as there are not many seating options. Try Mahi Mahi fish and chips. Prices were very reasonable and food tasted fresh.

We stopped here to grab some lunch after shopping at the coconut market place. We had mani fish and chips and Thai rolls. Both were really good. Corn dog was a hit with our four year old too. And great prices. Got ours to go and walked down to the beach and ate it. Highly recommended.

After shopping in the Coconut Marketplace, we ordered one meal and a drink. Nobody is in a hurry here, so one needs to be patient. I had the teriyaki kabob and it was delicious. Prices are reasonable. Part of the reason things were going slow is a guy had ordered meals for a work crew of 8 or 9 guys.... More

We enjoyed this hole-in-the wall place near Kauai Shores. Loved the BBQ and grilled chicken sandwich with pineapple.
