glorified cafeteria food

First of all, the staff is very friendly. Secondly, it is wonderful to have hot food after a chilly day hiking or taking in the views of the Koke’e State Park. But, if it were anywhere else, it would just seem like glorified cafeteria food. It wasn’t bad, but I wouldn’t go there if there were... read more

We went here after doing a hike. A rain storm was coming and this was a nice place to watch the rain and have a nice meal. Yes, a bit expensive, but the service was good and the grilled cheese sandwiches were basic, but tasty. There was also a nice gift shop with some local crafts and books - and... More

Putting it into the context that she was working alone and handling not only the dining room, but also the banquet room with a tour group in it, she did well. Still maintained a friendly outlook and was helpful. In my opinion the Portuguese Bean Soup is worth it, along with the cornbread. Yes, the menu is a bit limited... More

however, we found the service delightful. We ate there 4 times. Their food is very tasty, but do know they bring it up in their car--hence the convenience "fee". My fave shirt from the trip is their

Great setting, very pretty to sit and look out the windows, but mediocre food at best. Nothing at all special in the way to eat, tasteless and over-cooked. Prices are high for the low quality food. You are paying for the scenary. Don't stop here, keep on going for better food than this.

We had lunch here after getting cold and wet at them Canyon. Service is a little slow, there was only one waitress working. Once the order was in the food arrived quickly. My husband had the chili which was excellent and I had the soup. Be aware that the menu is a little confusing as it looks as if the... More

Great little place in the middle of nowhere! Stopped in for lunch, felt like I was living the past.... Food was fine, view was better! Just go & see for yourself. Great little store / museum next door.

After schlepping all the way up through Waimea canyon and maybe taking one one of the trails you may be hungry. The Kokee Lodge Restaurant is very convenient, comfortable and has good food. The staff seems disinterested in a typically Hawaiian way, but they are quick and helpful enough. You eat on a porch where you can watch the birds... 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.
