Tucked away in a little town call Lihue

We had 4 diners and no complaints. Delicious food and waitress friendly . Food was fast but you take you time and eat.

We went there because the reviews we rad were very good and we wanted barbeque. Unfortunately BBQ was not on the menu. We both had the teriyaki chicken and it was very good. The meal came with pie which was also very good. I love mashed potatos and was glad that they were real and not instant. The atmosphere is... More

The food was good, service pleasant, but the restaurant could use some updating. Location a little out of the way. Although called a barbecue place, there was no barbecue on the menu.

When I was in college one of my roommate's friends came over and cooked us some broiled teriyaki beef. It was one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten and I've never been able to order it or figure out how to make it. The teriyaki beef at this place was pretty darn close. I liked that it came... More

This was a small "dive" diner. The food quality was poor (fatty pork and heavily breaded chicken/shrimp) but the staff was friendly. I wouldn't go back, find an alternative or be prepared for a sub par dinner.

We have been going to this place for over 10 years. it is a very local place with good food and low prices. You can get a four course meal for under $30. It will include generous portions of fish or meat, salad, soup, and pie. The food is always cooked well and it tastes delicious. The atmosphere is old... More

Ten years ago this place was outstanding. But our recent visit revealed that this place has lost that special something it used to have.

Asked the valet for a restaurant that the locals liked to find a good hole-in-the-wall dining experience. He recommended the Barbeque Inn. Meal included a generous portion of food, delicious sides, and dessert (awesome cream pies!). We were very pleased with the food, service, and value of this location. Met with the owner who told us the 74 year history... More

Food was mediocre but the service was excellent. $$ for the price. A little bit hard to find. Dessert was good.

From Rice St, turn down Kress (Salvation Army store on corner). Halfway down is the Barbecue Inn on the left; at the end is Hamura's; follow the street around and it becomes Hardy St. At the light, across on the left is Garden Island Barbecue and Chinese Restaurant. Three excellent places to eat, all close together! These are local favorites,... More
