We visited Gaylords on recommendation from TripAdvisor and were so pleased we went back for lunch another day! Wait staff was excellent (what we've discovered is that wait staff is excellent on both Maui and Kauai) and the food was very good as well. You must try the caprese salad and short ribs for dinner, and the chicken crepe for... More

We had a wonderful lunch here after our train ride around the Plantation. Upscale menu with fresh fish offerings. Try the plantation paid for dessert - you won't be disappointed.

We were here for dinner before heading back to the mainland. This was a first trip to Kauai. It is such a beautiful island. Eating here was a perfect ending to our trip. The food and staff were fabulous. There was even singing entertainment while we ate. 👍

We did this after our rum tasting. The spiced rum is so good I had some on the rocks, which I can't normally do. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Lunch was served outside around this peaceful courtyard.

Description
Gaylord's offers one of Kauai's most beautiful settings for lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch. Located on the ground floor of the historic Kilohana Plantation home, diners are seated around an open-air courtyard with views of the plantation grounds and Mt. Waialeale in the distance. Our kitchen uses only the freshest, seasonal ingredients supporting our local farmers and fishermen. Our 67-acre sustainable farm provides much of the produce and herbs used in our dishes and cocktails. Menu items include starters like fresh Ahi Poke, Seafood Spring Rolls and Organic Greens Salads; Local Fish, Meat and Vegetarian Entrees; and Banana Cream Pie for Dessert! After your meal take a walk around the Kilohana grounds, shop in our assorted boutiques, visit the rum shop or take a ride on the plantation train. Join us at Gaylord's to enjoy the best of what Kauai has to offer in island food and experience. Call for reservations and details on weekly entertainment. Memorable by day...Unforgettable by Night.
