Disappointed

Our friends had eaten here a few years ago and apparently it was much better. There were few choices on the menu and the restaurant closes early (around 3 or 4 PM ever day). They brought our sandwiches to us in a Styrofoam box. We went over to get our own drinks, silverware and napkins. We had... read more

We picked up a couple of sandwiches here for a picnic lunch and were very pleasantly surprised by how good they were... Definitely a recommend if you are looking for a quick and easy packed lunch.

I have been to this place for years and just realized I had not reviewed it. I was there this morning after a wonderful hike on the Pihea trail and Kalalau lookout. I had the Portuguese bean soup and some hot chocolate, my wife a serving of cornbread. Both were delicious as usual. Now the lodge is located in a... More

the worst meal we had by far while we were in Kauai. I had the Portuguese bean soup, the menu stated it was their specialty......it was not good!! If you're starving do yourself a favour and drive all the way back down to.... anywhere but here!!

A quaint little place, the only little place, in Waimea park. The staff seemed indifferent and the food is not bad. My youngest daughter had fun running around in circles in the big grass field that fronts this restaurant. If you're hungry and this place is not crowded then I would recommend it. If you're not so hungry and this... More

Great little lodge style restaraunt in the mountain. Beautiful scenery, pictures will not do it justice. But the food is no good and over priced. Honestly it tasted like a TV dinner that was heated up and served to us on a paper plate. The place is very run down, but the waitress was so sweet. Great place to stop... More

We stop here a couple of times a year and generally with guests. My two favorite things on the menu are the Portuguese bean soup and the quiche. The soup does change a little but it is always the first thing I think about when looking at the menu. If you are visiting kokee state park this is the only... More

and service was not as 'rushed and indifferent' as many reviews state. Very 'old' Hawaii feeling. Good creative salad.

The Bean Soup needed to be cooked for a couple more hours. We stop on the way back down specifically for the Bean Soup. Corn bread was OK.
