I used to cook. Okay, I cook all the time, but I mean professionally, from 3000 people a day to about 500, depending on where I was. So I can take food very seriously. I also understand that no one can ever stand up to my sanitation expectations, so when it comes to local holes-in-the-wall like Grass Skirt, I'll let... More

The fish served at this little restaurant is absolutely first rate! We stopped here for lunch and braved a small crowd at this tiny little eatery. With the very first bite of my fish sandwich, I knew I had discovered a seafood eater's paradise. They were out of Mahi Mahi but were offering Hebi which is a Hawaiian billfish similar... More

Im not a chicken fan, but they make excellent Teriyaki chicken. Now the price is a bit much, at 8.99 a plate...BUT....for the price you get 4 big pieces of chicken, two scopes of rice, and a good portion salad, which has an amazing dressing. I did not have a chance to try the ahi, due to shortages, but i... More

We shared the fish lunch plate here which was very good. I disliked the plantation tea, but that's probably just me. I'm a southern girl who loves sweet tea and the added pineapple didn't seem to pair well. As for the lunch, the fish was good and the the salad greens were very fresh. They are super busy for lunch... More

Our visit to diminutive Grass Skirt Grill is definitely in contention for best meal we've had in Hawaii ever (and there have been numerous meals on Oahu, Maui, Hawai'i and Kauai.) Fresh, lovely food and big servings aplenty. I had the pulled pork plate lunch and it was completely delicious. My partner had the burger and made noises that indicated... More

This is one of the best places to eat on the whole island. The fish is fresh and taste great. The portions are large and the prices are reasonable. My wife and I loved it. We had a great lunch there and already made plans to return next year.

We were tipped off to this place by some folks, who had been tipped off by some locals. Went by the first time (2010) and one of our group didn't want to eat there because of looks. He and the wife split a meal. The next day we were all back because it was so good. Next trip, same person... More

We had the Ono burger, the Ahi burger, and the Hebi burger...all excellent! Even the fries and onion rings were very good. Great friendly service in a local atmosphere. Don't miss this place.
