Good basic dinner

There aren't many restaurant choices in Waimea, and this is one of only two "nice" sit-down restaurants. (The other is Kalapaki Joes). The menu is good, and if you are a meat eater it may be wonderful. I had a chicken dish which was okay (chicken caesar salad), and there are fish dishes on the... read more

The food is awesome! We enjoyed the hamburger steak and found it to be the best we've had yet. Fresh mashed potatoes, and veggies that were cooked perfectly.

Wife and I chanced upon this location on our drive along the coast. Had an incredible hamburger and the service was second to none. Would put this on the top my list for places to return. Dinner menu looked incredible !!!!!

We always go to Wranglers for special occasions. The food is always tasty and they have a good variety so it is good for a family or for a nice dinner out. Love their sizziling steak, bento and there fresh fish dishes.

The location is on the main street in Waimea....no real atmosphere, but if you sit on the porch, you can watch the main street activity, which will include a lot of loud traffic. The food was ok...nothing to write home about. Had a burger and I expected a bit more from a "steakhouse" but it was just average and I... More

The service is friendly and professional. The food is basic but good and the atmosphere is that of a tropical village.

On our particular trip, they didn't have locally raised meat, and that was our main reason for stopping (perhaps we were silly; it happens). The wait staff was amazing and the salad bar was simply fun--get the beef/onion soup as it is to do die for. Really, it IS that good. The meal was good. The ambiance is fun, given... More

Complete with saddles and rope. The food was pretty good across the board--between everyone in our group we had fish, steak, and chicken. Sitting in the back patio is the nicest--we were seated in the front by the street but asked to be moved. If you sit by the street, it's noisy, distracting, and hot.

Fast seating inside or on the front porch watching the world of Waimea. Simple surf & turf menu with grilled marlin on the day we visited for $27 with a soup and salad bar included. Like many restaurants on the west end of the island, closed Sundays.

Our steak was good and cooked how we requested, but the salad bar was pretty disappointing. Especially considering we chose to split the steak (very reasonable with the large size), and one of us paid $10 to just get some mixed leaves and about 4 toppings. The service was great and super nice, but I liked the actual food at... More
