There is no place to eat your meal and you are ordering from a fresh fish market. WHO CARES! The plates are about $10 and you get some super fresh fish and rice and salad. I had the ahi the first time and we went back and got the ono. Both were flaky, tender, and tasty. Just find a spot... More

If you visit Kaua'i this is a must. Right across the street from Walmart. They have a lunch plate special everyday for $10.95, fish, rice and Mac salad. Good size serving and very good. This is a fish market so their is no place to sit, I just turn on the AC and eat in the car. Poke is good,... More

Wonderful-we never miss this place-coming into Kauai or leaving-just across from Wal-mart-not far from the airport. Small and always busy, everything is de-LISH! Excellent service-fast and they encourage sampling. Very economical but they aren't open for dinner. Don't miss it-you will be glad you didn't!

We asked about a place where locals go for good fish. Oh, was this the right place to go. It is a seafood market with take out food. We had tasty fish tacos and took them to a park to eat. Lots of different choices for take out already prepared as well as will make items you order. We'll be... More

They don't have tables, but you can get lunch for $10.95 (macadamia nut fish in a sauce this is incredible, rice and salad)--Grill is open until 3 p.m. Take your lunch to go and eat at a nearby park or the beach. There is not a better deal in Lihue. They also sell poke and fresh fish. Highly recommend. We... More

we tried the spicy ahi tuna poke and the lobster salad poke and both were excellent. It was very cheap and we were served quickly.

I have always had great food from here, poke is usually wonderful, everything from the grill has yet to disappoint. Today I went there and it was a little different. There was a help wanted sign on the door so maybe they were overworked and tired? Anyway I ordered a shrimp and chicken plate for my other half, whatever was... More

We purchased the lumi ahi poke, ahi and the mahi. They were excellent. We grilled the fish and it was melt in... More

We were starving in the late afternoon after ziplining, and based on recommendations we decided to stop for some fish-to-go. It was yummy! My ono with garlic sauce was light and flavorful, and my husband's ahi wrap was well sized, and well put together. The service was very fast, and they sell fresh caught fish by the chunk if you...

Wish we found this place at the beginning of our trip rather than toward the end. Fresh, affordable seafood, nothing costs more than $10.95. The grill closes at 3pm, and it's all takeout (nowhere to sit and eat), but really really good. We had the macadamia crusted ahi, and the one meal was enough for the two of us for... More
