Stopped here for lunch: I ordered a cheeseburger and my gf ordered a bacon cheeseburger, both with fries and a drink. the burgers were large, probably 1/3 pound before cooking, and mine was good (perhaps a little over-cooked), and the fries were great. My gf said she loved her bacon cheeseburger and fries. She had bottled water, and said it... More

Service was Ok. Seemed like they did not enjoy their jobs but food was good! For a quick bite! Very well located in the center of the other shops and market!

Burger was one of best on three islands we visited. More food options than anticipated. Food and service was very good, neat and clean place.

It was nearly closing time but the employees couldn't have been nicer. Clean restaurant. Clean bathrooms. Free WI-FI and most of all excellent burgers!

Went here for lunch, on the last day of my business trip to Moloka'i. Everyone said I needed to eat there and try the breaded teriyaki. When I finally made it there, I was not dissapointed! VERY ono! Thought it was funny how they posted all of the bounced checks on their "wall of shame" Moloka'i is a small island!

Since there are not a lot of places to eat in Molokai, we tried to go to as many as possible. This place didn't leave a lasting impression. The food was about average, nothing special but the service was good and the area was very clean. Portion size is about what you would expect for pricing. Not great, but not... More

The food is good, but it needs to be cleaner and the bathrooms need cleaning on a daily basis. The staff should take their jobs a bit more seriously than they do, service could be better.

On vacation on Molokai my wife and I had both a lunch and breakfast at the Drive Inn. My hamburger was so-so but the fries and shake were great. She had "great" grilled cheese and fries. I had scrambled eggs with cornbeef hash which were very good, she had toast & hashbrowns also very good. Reasonable prices. Would eat here... More

This is the oldest eating establishment on Molokai and enjoys the patronage of the locals. The food is fresh and excellent! The hamburgers are outstanding as are the breakfast sandwiches. Many complements were heard regarding the Saimin and fresh fish.

My husband and I are on our first trip to Molokai (we frequent the other Hawaiian islands). Yesterday we ate at Molokai Drive Inn. The food is OK, I had the deluxe burger and he had the Saimin combo. My burger was fine---patty was good, cooked properly and toppings were standard. My husband's saimin was just OK although he says... More
