This place seems to be a family type atmosphere restaurant. Older style place. Could use some fresh paint and bathrooms updated kinda gross in men's. Service was pleasant but slow.

Friendly service, the building itself wouldn't be out of place in the actual old west. I had the hamburger steak, which was good, but simply a hamburger patty under some onions and mushrooms. Wife had filet with their house sauce and it was perfectly cooked and flavorful. Salad bar was ok, the soup was a Portuguese bean and very tasty.... More

Good burgers, fish and other light lunches some what limited in their offerings but tasty where there are not a lot of other choices for a late lunch in town.

We had just come back from visiting Waimea canyon and decided to stop for a late lunch, so after 1pm. Our waitress was very nice, however, the service was slow, even for Hawaii time. The food was fine. The salad bar is not worth the cost and we would suggest sticking with the other menu items. The cost was reasonable... More

After a morning drive viewing the canyon, we were starved. We had seen positive reviews for Wrangler's so stopped here. We both ordered the grilled fish sandwich, which was moonfish that day. The sandwiches had good sized pieces of fish, and were accompanied by fries. They were quite good and filling. This is not a speedy place to eat, so... More

This is my usual meeting place for a business meal. You can dine in or out, and in feels more upscale than most restaurants on the island. Always a good meal with good service and the soup/salad bar included provides excellent value and opportunity to enjoy business length dining (plenty of time to chat). Plantation iced tea is a must,... More

This place is right on the Kaumualii Highway in Waimea, across the street from the Big Save grocery store -- you can't miss it. We sat on the porch out front and had a nice breeze. There is another porch in the back (on the ocean side of the restaurant) but you can only sit there for supper. We were... More

Been coming to this restaurant for 20+yrs. Delicious steaks. This time we were 4, each had a different steak and we all loved it. Dinners were around $30 each, included soup &salad bar. Drinks were reasonable.

It was a friendly restaurant with attention to detail. There were several restaurants near by but we are happy that we chose there to eat. Great food, great service.

Called earlier in the day and made a reservation. Drove 45 minutes to the nearby beach, watched the sun set, and drove five minutes to the Wrangler. Arrived and were told they didn't have our name. As they dug through their notes they said "we have you for tomorrow night". No apology at all and acted like we had done... More
