Set in the old Hanalei school building, Hanalei Gourmet is a laid back, casual spot with a straightforward menu: burgers, fish and chips, chicken tenders, salads. Good vacation food. The only Hawaiian element is the live music and the surf competition showing on the flat panel TV. Put your name on the chalkboard, and if it looks really long, know... More

Ken had the fresh Fish and Chips (EXCELLENT) and I had a delicious egg plant sandwich. Very friendly and laid back atmosphere.

We stopped by the restaurant on a busy night and added our name to the chalkboard mounted by one of the doors. Our wait for a table for four was not long. The food was very well prepared and good. The restaurant is usually busy and the bar somewhat noisy so don't expect a quiet meal...but the food is good... More

Waited quite while for a server to take our order. Waited a lot longer yet for the food to arrive. But once it got to us, my chicken sandwiches was very good with a nice sauce. Good cold beers,too!

we stop there often for a quick lunch or take out. It gets a little busy at times but if you're patient it's worth the wait. Friendly staff.

My wife and I decided to try Hanalei Gourmet for dinner one evening while on vacation since it was fairly close to where we were staying in Princeville. The atmosphere was that of a slightly noisy sports bar, which it essentially is. The service was just average and our server wasn't very outgoing - can't remember her name, but she... More

We went in to have a drink, watch football and maybe lunch. But after sitting at the bar which was overflowing with dirty glasses we decided to eat elsewhere. Of course this was not the only issue. The dirty glasses were stacked so they were higher than the bar, when the bartender ran out of counter space, he began staking... More

Hanalei Gourmet is a must do when in Hanalei Bay. In the old Hanalei School and a real local hangout.....great food and beverage. Reasonable pricing. Best for lunch.

After spending the day at on the North Shore, we headed back "home." Stopped at Hanalei Gourmet and ordered Big Tim's burger, Mo's ultimate burger, a Hebi fish sandwich, and Fish and Chips. All were very good, all served quickly (we had 10 people), service great, atmosphere very relaxed. Prices good, portion size satisfactory. A good place to grab a... More

The burger was good. The fish tacos and breaded shrimp were very overlooked, boiled in oil too long, or the oil was old. The shrimp was not edible, the fish tacos were just ok. If you do go here, just get the burger.
