“A little gem, great place for lunch ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Tucked away in the old Hanalei school house, this place has charm and serves up delicious food. The old school black boards are still up inside--that brought back memories of diagramming sentences at the board when I was in grade school. There are tables inside but that seemed hectic and noisy, so we sat outside on the porch which was delightful. I had the grilled fish sandwich which was Hepi that day and my spouse had the chicken salad sandwich. Both were excellent, each stuffed with fresh sprouts, lettuce, and tomato. Definitely a keeper!

“They know FRESH!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Hanalei Waldorf and Good Ol' Greens salads with fresh marlin were exceptional!!! They know how to do fish, too! Fun place, definitely worth a repeat visit. Good mix of locals and tourists. Save room for Kauai pie....Lappert's ice cream with cookie crust and trimmings......mmmmmmmm!

“Great food, great service, but noisy.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

The good here is great, but get there early because specials sell out quickly.
Service is excellent.
It can get quite noisy in the restaurant, so if you don't like noise, you may want to reconsider.

“Fun, music, good food, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

A Hawaiian group was playing and singing and a very graceful hula dancer added to the fun. It was loud in there but the food and service were very good, friendly atmosphere.
Specials were moderately priced and drinks were good.
