Best Coconut Shrimp Ever!

A guy who worked at our hotel told us about this spot, which he thought had the best shrimp on the North Shore and boy was he right! It is not the North Shore garlic shrimp but coconut macadamia shrimp. They were O-M-G delish! You have to look past all the chickens that walk around and jump on... read more

Had the delicious coconut macadamia nut shrimp. I loved the salad too. Service was good and pretty fast (they make it fresh!).

Wow, these burgers can't be missed, simply some of the best we've had! Also very nice coconut shrimp. Outdoor dining with cats and aggressive chickens.

We visited the Kahuku grill twice during our stay in Hawaii, due to the fact that it was within walking distance from where we were staying. The first visit was late in the evening and the place was packed I only saw one other empty table. The line was long and it appeared as only one person was working the... More

My boys had a couple of burgers that they ranked as one of the tops they ever had. The special sauce for dipping the fries was a favorite. My third son had the Basa fish plate and loved it. I had the Basa fish and garlic shimp combo. All around a happy family wanting to go back for more. Service... More

We were here on a Saturday afternoon. This place only has outside seating and right after we ordered our food it started pouring! Everyone ran and took cover. We're from Seattle so we just stood under the umbrella. Rain doesn't really bother us. It rained really good for a good 10 minutes then it stopped. The workers all came out... More

This burger place looked really good at first. The burgers were juicy and large and you could add on home fries and/or salad. I was happy they had a salad option since I love veggies. The fries were OK. I would have liked them crispier, but they were a little soggy. It took them about 20 minutes to even take... More

Agree with many of other reviews. Food is good but remarkably poor system of providing food with long waits to order and long waits for food. Agree with annoying feral cat problem...

Food was not exceptional for the price. I expected a better variety to choose from and better tasting.

We always try to eat where the locals do, and were not disappointed by the Kahuku Grill. The coconut shrimp is worth the trip no matter where on the island you are staying. My fiancée usually doesn't like seafood, but ordered it instead of a burger because well... we are in Hawaii! She loved it. The owners and staff are... More
