“Fresh food, traditional plate lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

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 and service can be slow, but that's expected when the volume of people the quality of food....no complaint here.

“Grass Skirt Grill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

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 it was also pretty delicious. They only take cash but if you're in Haleiwa, you want to eat here. It's the business.

“Great Fish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

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.

“worth trip from Waikiki repeat visits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

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 had forgotten how good it was. Ate there anyway, returned next day for more. The food is excellent and good value. Grab a table and get ready for some of the best casual food on the island. Recommend catch of day or anything else. We've never had a problem getting a seat. Service is fast, friendly. Quality unmatched. Owner says that the same fish meal in Waikiki would cost $60. Here approx $15, or less. Interesting bulletin board. Also go to adjacent parking lot...sale of fruit, etc by locals. I just love this place.

“Best fish sandwich I've ever eaten!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

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.
