Good Burger in a Beautiful City

My wife and I stopped into to Blue Ginger last fall on a quite day in Lanai City! I made sure to get their cheeseburger which was good and buy a t-shirt for my dresser. Next time I would go with another dish and sit outside on their Beautiful front lanai. Good luck with all of the renovations on... read more

Probably the best restaurant on Lanai. Easily the most popular. Veggie sandwich was good as was the fish and fries.

Service was great, the kind that only exists in a small town. Coffee and breakfast were great. Comfortable atmosphere.

During our first visit to Lanai a decade ago, we had lunch and dinner at Blue Ginger. Hoping that things haven't changed much, we stopped by this time for dinner. It was a nice early evening and there were a few patrons dining inside. We went inside and ordered the Kahlua Pork plate and Grilled Pork Chops with Mushrooms. Add... More

I had breakfast at Blue Ginger when I took a day trip to Lanai. I read many reviews saying how great this place was. They were right! It's a small restaurant that has a lot to offer. I had a breakfast plate with eggs, toast, and bacon. The food was tasty & the staff very friendly. They had a line... More

We were on Lanai only for the day with our primary visit to the Lanai Cat Rescue Center. We decided we had to get some lunch so went into town and stopped at this wonderful restaurant right on the park with outside seating. The food and the atmosphere were great! WE had a huge hamburger for only $5 each...needed that... More

Right when you walk in the door, you are overwhelmed with the smell of fresh baked bread... it smells amazing. I ordered the fresh mahi burger which was amazing served with crispy fries. I will definitely be back on my next visit...would love to try some of their other dishes... the only drawback here is that they only accept cash.... More

Excellent food and service. We ate here during our trip to Lanai earlier this month. We noted that all the locals were here. The prices are reasonable, the food was delicious, and we had great conversations with the numerous Lanai residents that were eating here.

This is a cheap breakfast alternative. The food is not all that, is just regular breakfast but it beats the pricy Four Season buffet breakfast. I wish I would have know about this place sooner.

We arrived in lanai and this was the only place open on a Sunday. We walked up to the filthy screen doors and stepped inside. Our eyes were greeted with a greasy spoon Cafe. Four people entered the cafe and she seemed completely shocked by the arrival of guests. We ordered our food (3 grilled cheese, fries, 2 sides of... More
