Mark's Place is not easy to find, located in the middle of an industrial park area, but it is worth the effort. Reasonably priced real Hawaiian food. My wife really enjoyed her Loco Moco. I had Mark's Famous Mixed Plate, which is Beef Stew, Beef Teriyaki, Chicken Katsu, with Mac salad and rice for $8.95. All was very good, but... More

Mark's Place is a gem! Had dinner & was still able to get one of the days specials. Portions were huge and food was great! Korean chicken is excellent. It's in an industrial park which at dinner time 6:30p is pretty deserted which is kinda weird but makes it quiet. Picked up some baked goods add well and they're perfectly... More

This is great if you're in the mood for some local food. You will see more workers stoping here for lunch than tourist during lunch. Its good food and very large portions so go hungry and expect left overs. I had the sample plate and didn't even make it through half, but i was more than happy to have some... More

What can we say? We have been dreaming about Mark's Place ever since we planned our trip back to Kaua'i. We even declined dinner service on the plane just so we can go there hungry! Just a tip: Mark's closes at 8pm and is closed on Saturday's for catering. This is important so don't forget!!!! We were on the island... More

We found this place on yelp and wow, we ordered chicken katsu and a combo plate with two drinks for a Meir $23. They gave a lot of food and it was delicious. Would go back for sure. It's a little hard to find but worth it!

Mark's had come highly recommended by frequent travelers to the island as well as from the locals. The location is definitely unusual being in the middle of an industrial park, but the picnic tables with the umbrellas are a great clue to locating the restaurant. We tried the sampler platter which presented itself with stew, teriyaki, and Katsu chicken. There... More

Based on the TripAdvisor reviews, we went directly to Mark’s Place after our plane landed, and were not disappointed. We had the Korean Chicken, Loco Moco, Teriyaki Beef and Teriyaki Chicken. Good, tasty fare; inexpensive and a solid four-stars. Thankfully, the food was flavorsome without being too salty, which we’ve experienced with a lot of plate lunches. We didn’t experience... More

This place had inexpensive local Hawaiian food and was located in an industrial area in Lihue. We bought the mixed plate to share and a salad to share and took it back to the terrace of the hotel. More than enough food for the two of us and boy was it delicious. I bought some cinamon shortbread cookies to take... More

Marks place should be your number one destination for awesome local food. The mixed plate lunch was great- surprisingly great beef stew, despite initial wariness about eating stew on a warm summer day. The Korean chicken plate was also good. I wish we had a Marks Place near us, because we'd go all the time. Food is tasty, prices are... More

Try the mixed plate so you will know what to order on your return visits. Large filling portions are a great value if you are hungry. Do not forget to try their chocolate brownie or butter mochi, seriously, you will thank me later.
