Kokee Lodge Restaurant

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... read 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!!

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.

Nice little stop by while driving up the mountains. Yummy Veg Quiche, I ordered and hubby ordered the Hamburger Steak. Both home cooked and very lodge/country feel to this place. Walk around this area and walk through the small trails and visit the museum as well. Overall a very comforting place stop by!

So we spent the whole morning exploring Waimea canyon, which was beautiful, and decided to grab a bite to eat at the top. I generally try to keep my posts positive, but this was a complete waste of time and money! The service was snail paced, the food was mediocre at best, and the two bags of chips I had... More
