Loulou's Griddle in the Middle is the tiny diner on Wharf #2. We always say we're "tiny but mighty." We cook with a lot of heart, soul, and deep care about every detail. We aim to make your experience comfortable, fun, delicious, and a little like being at a home-away-from-home. The kitchen is open so you can see our chefs preparing right in front of you. Our community of customers--both local and visitors from far away--also make Loulou's special. We bend over backwards to accomodate your requests, when we can, and we might crown you with a tiara if your requests are many....but all in fun. The diner opened in 1948, so it's rich with history. We're blessed with one customer, Henry, who has

it's a small spot so you might feel a bit cramped. it's also a friendly spot so perhaps cozy is a better word! It's a great spot for a post-dive meal if you want a change from hulas or one of the other popular spots....More

We had great fun seated at the counter where we could watch the cooks do their thing a mere arm’s length away. It’s a tiny place, but well worth the 45-minute wait — we walked the length of the pier to pass the time. I...More

Loved this place. Breakfast was good and plentiful with selections to meet everyone in our group’s individual taste. Lots of options for small children. Fast and friendly service and an A+ for atmosphere.
