Molokai is super expensive but here it's not that bad and yummy food. We all liked it breakfast lunch and dinner.

This is a funky local restaurant with a very friendly proprietor and great island food. We enjoyed our dinner so much that we went back for breakfast the next morning and it was wonderful too. Consider splitting a meal. There is plenty of food. They do not take credit cards, so bring cash.

Great Prime rib. Great boneless fried chicken. Do not expect table cloths, candle light or anything else that will make this romantic. IT'S AN EATERY!!! And if you would like a beer, cocktail or wine with that. Bring it yourself. Yes, they do not sell alcohol. Don't be embarrassed, you will be in the minority if you don't bring your... More

On the island of Mokokai there isn't a whole lot of choices for food. We were here 6 years ago and remembered having breaking at the Cookhouse, so we decided to give it a try for dinner. Lucky for us that prime rib is a special on Thursdays! My husband and I both had the prime rib with French fries... More

My husband & I arrived on Molokai late Saturday night. Come Sunday morning we needed breakfast before heading to one of the open markets to stock up our kitchen. We ended up being customers a few minutes before their actual opening time but the local EMTs beat us in the door. We dined inside. There is also outdoor dining at... More

Other reviews we saw encouraged us to try this place, and it's not real fancy, but the food is very good... If you're in this area of Molokai and need a place to eat, this is it!

This restaurant is small un imposing building in the Moloka'i village of Kaulapu'u. They have buth indoor and out door seating. The staff is fiends and seem to be a family and treat customers like part of that family. Most of the menu consists of mixed plates. I had the Chopped Steak Plate. The steak was on a bed of... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of dining here with another coouple, who live on the island for the majority of the year. This is their "go to" place. Note my rating is calibrated to the locale. In most locations the Cookhouse would be only ok. But on Molokai I rate it as very good. Note: I did see... More

Hi All. Remember where you are - back country Molokai - and I reviewed it as such. This is a cookhouse where the locals, the cops and the EMTs eat - hence the name, so leave your credit cards in your wallet - they don't take them. Having said that, they have a nice choice for breakfast and lunch. The... More
