If you visit Lanai for more than two days, you will want an alternative to the restaurants at the Four Seasons Resort. For the price of one dinner at the Four Seasons, you can feed a family of four at Blue Ginger and experience some true "local" style cooking. I recommend the chop steak plate (pictured) with generous servings of... More

Stopped in at the Blue Ginger Cafe for lunch on our last vacation in Lanai in August 2014. Unsurprisingly there was a line, as it's a popular spot. The wait line was good, as it gave us a chance to contemplate our choices from the wall menu -- lots of plate lunch options ("plate lunch" for non-Hawaii people is an... More

My husband and I ate at the Blue Ginger three times on a recent trip to Lana'i and would recommend it in a heartbeat! During our visits I tried the veggie omlette (filled with assorted veggies - brocolli, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, peppers/etc.) and the cheese omlette and my husband ordered the ham omlette - and switched to the cheese the...

Been here numerous times. Food is very consistent as is service. If you are hungry this is the place to go. Homemade pastries and bread are a plus.

Great food, reasonably priced informal eatery in Lanai town. Eat in or take out. The Mahi Mahi burgers were a great choice and we sat at outside tables which offer a cool breeze and the company of many mooching sparrows.

Nice local place, great food...perfect place to start upon arrival in Lana'i. We flew over on the 6AM flight, and ate here before our private tour of Lana'i, and LARC.

We took the ferry over from Maui just to visit Lanai and have lunch. Lanai is not as populated as Maui and the choices for eating are somewhat limited. We took the shuttle up to the "city" and found the Blue Ginger Café. We ordered fish sandwiches and fries. We could easily have split one and still been full. The... More

Our whole family loves it here. Great food & it's a fun way to experience some Lanai local flavor away from the resorts.

We came here for lunch. The food was good and portions were quite large. If we didn't have to take the ferry back to Maui we probably would have taken the rest of our food to go because the portions were so large.
