The Kahuku Grill is located at the historical Kahuku Sugar Mill. From the street you can see a large wheel that was part of the old mill. When entering the parking lot to the right there is a gas station. Parking can be found on the at the curb in front of the large wheel and to the left of the entrance. The Grill is right behind the big sugar mill "wheel". Hope to see you soon.

The best coconut shrimp I ever ate!

We began our trip eating at this place and ended our trip eating here. It was the best food all around during our visit to Oahu. The coconut shrimp, fish and burgers were out of this world. The salad that came with the meal was awesome as well. Customer service was outstanding. The one young... read more

So I decided to go here to eat after that I heard that it had great food, but I almost died of hunger just sitting in line. It took me about 15 minutes to put in my order for 1 plate of coconut shrimp and there were only 2 people in line before me. On top of that the cashier... More

Great food, decent prices but service CAN be slow as it can get very busy! There's a good shaved ice place on the premises, also. The burgers are loaded, salads are tasy and garlic shrimp very garlicky!

The servers were very sweet and helpful. When we talk about food though... The Garlic Shrimp did not have any flavor and coconut shrimp tasted burnt. The only thing we really enjoyed were the Rice and Fries.

We all had different types of burgers and everyone loved them. The fries were so good and 1 order would have been enough for all of us to share. The place was busy but service was pretty quick and everyone was friendly. Had to ask to have our table wiped off but totally understandable!!! Would definitely go again.

Loved the Grill Seafood Combo ($15) and Shem's Big Bad Burger Combo ($10). They're located by North Shore. It is well worth the 45 km drive from Waikiki.

The coconut shrimp was unreal, but do not be fooled its a large meal and you will not need anything else to fill you up. Very friendly staff and with the owner walking around making sure everyone was ok (Dont think this occurs every night) it was the perfect local food without the need of eating off the back of...

We stopped here because all these little places are supposed to be awesome. They opened at 11. Around 11 a girl came out and said they wouldn't be ready to open until 1115 . And they were out of butter so the garlic butter shrimp would not be available. I can live with that. So at 1115 they started taking... More

Kahuku Grill features burgers and fish plates and we had their "World Famous" coconut & macadamia nut shrimp plate with five large butterflied shrimp, seasoned white rice and a tossed salad for $13/plate. Even though you order at the window of a fixed building, the experience is more like ordering and eating at one of the famous North Shore Shrimp... More
