Very nice spot if you are looking for a change from the hotels restaurants. Great food, we had steaks, seafood and rolls. Good wine selection as well. Excellent service and not too expensive. So a must go if you stay a few days in Lanai.

The food was excellent! The menu had a lot of great variety, and the server was really helpful in explaining how the dishes were prepared. The restaurant was a little warm - particularly for dinner so don't worry about needing a sweater.

This was a favorite spot to eat outside of the resort!! Closed on Mon/Tue but well worth scheduling around that. Food is excellent!! Best sea bass I have ever tasted. Don't miss!!

We have dined at Lanai City Grill twice this week and twice last year. The food is terrific, the setting and service is classy, yet casual and the prices are fair. The Sea Bass dish is a house specialty. The restaurant is closed on Monday and Tuesday evenings and reservations are highly recommended.

Evening Live bands make this fun if you are there when the music is playing. Quite refined inside you will see it has a blend of what makes Lanai a one of a kind island.

Had dinner at the Grille about 5 years ago. And the food is still outstanding. Prices better than the two island resorts. Menu is great and service is excellent.

We had dinner here a couple nights ago. Atmosphere was nice and service was great. Our waitress was very helpful and kind. Food was better than average, but not great. We ordered the BBQ baby back ribs and venison. The venison was very well prepared and a little gamey, but such is venison. The ribs...well, they weren't Carolina ribs, but... More

We'd heard the buzz about Lanai City Grille from the moment we landed. Went to dinner on a Wednesday night and were blown away. Simply the best sashimi tuna in Hawaii. I had the sea bass, my husband the venison. No problems accommodating my dietary needs. Dinner was so delicious we had to return Friday night. Had an amazing white... More
