Generous sized breakfast, Little Interaction with Server

We ate breakfast rather early the first day of our vacation. It took several minutes for either of the two waitresses to notice we were waiting to be seated. Being an open air restaurant allowed us to see the few other customers, so we knew it was open for business. After barely being acknowledged... read more

This place sounds like just a burger joint, but they have great breakfasts with terrific pancakes. The cocoanut syrup is good in coffee, too! Their waitresses are very friendly and helpful. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because they are unwilling to substitute anything on the menu or change anything even for an up charge. I... More

Good food for decent prices. My wife had an gigantic angus hotdog and I had the Ono fish sandwich special of the day. Both were very good. Try it, you will like it.

This was the nearest shopping village from our hotel - Hyatt. About 2 kms. They offer variety of burgers, fish & chips and other items ... which taste great with cold beer!. I had fish and chips - both the quantity and quality were great

Been frequenting this place for many years over the course of many vacations. The staff are always smiling and friendly and the menu is extensive. We had a vegetarian in the group alongside a meat only eater and everyone found something on the menu. The burgers are filling without being monstrous and the omelet was gigantic. There is plenty of... More

We had lunch here on a recommendation from someone at the resort we were staying at. We had lunch in the late afternoon on a Tuesday with very few others in the restaurant. The service was a little slow seeing there were only 6 customers. We both ordered off the burger menu. I have to say we were pleasantly surprised... More

We had burgers there and really enjoyed them! Sometimes they have live local musicians playing Hawaiian tunes. Great ambiance, very nice people, great burgers.

We stopped here for dinner after doing some shopping at the center. My husband ordered the Teriyaki Burger med/well. The bun was soaked with grease and the meat was way overcooked, to the point of not being able to cut through it. It smelled awful, yuck! My fish and chips were also over cooked and the coleslaw was soupy, again... More

We wish we had not had our last meal of Kauai here. Breakfast at Tropical Burger was pricey & greasy. The coffee for $2.50 is bottomless but the omelets were served with a lot of grease/oil. Even though the hashbrowns were toasty brown, they were not crisp. My husband wanted to just quit eating here & get a Starbucks breakfast... More
