If you are going to the Hanalei Pier, you must have lunch at Pat's. Yes, it's just a taco truck with a minimal menu but it's amazing food. Perfect for a day at the beach.

The best pork taco on this island. There is also a great jalepeno quesadilla. Make sure you get there at the right time, only open from 12-3... Then take a nice dive off the pier, about 10 feet deep. Kids and adults loved it.

You should contact the owner of the establishment through their website. I know some places though small can sometimes accommodate with pre arraignment. I hope this helps.
