Our local friend recommended this hole in the wall place to us to try their lunch plates. Their selections are somewhat limited with chicken and beef as their primary choices. On the day that we were there, they offered 2 daily specials (one ahi and one opah, both are fish dishes). One of us took their combo (3 items including... More

Where many locals go. You may need your GPS to find it. Sort of in an industrial area. Many choices. I had their mixed plate. Katsu chicken, teriyaki beef and stew. Also included a salad... All for about $11. You won't be hungry afterwards.

Driving back hungry for lunch at midday, googled "plate lunch", got Mark's Place, located in Lihue at the intersection of local and industrial. Popular for good reason. We shared two specials: the roast pork and the fish tempura. Awesome plate lunchness. Picnic tables with umbrellas outdoors, friendly locals and visitors, reasonably polite roosters on patrol (don't jump on tables til... More

We visited Mark's Place for dinner and ordered two of the day's specials. The first was the Chinese Crispy Pork Salad and the second was the Fish Tempura Plate. The fish was better than the pork - but was still only average. The tempura was overly greasy. The mac salad accompanying the fish was pretty good, and the rice was... More

Mark's Place is tucked away from the main drives in Lihue, but is so worth punching into your GPS and trying. Authentic Hawaiian food, daily specials, fast, hot and best of all DELICIOUS. Once you've been here, you'll make it a habit to be back.

If you didn't know it was there, you would likely pass it right by, but that would be an egregious error! Mark's Place is an off-the-beaten-path keeper! Open from 10 am to 8 pm they serve up a remarkable selection of lunch and dinner delights. I had the Mark'sFamous Mixed Plate composed of Chicken Katsu, Teriyaki Beef & Beef Stew... More

When we left the Lihue airport we were very hungry. We had been told about Mark's Place which is located near the Safeway, and Costco. The are reminds me of an industrial park.......but don't let that turn you away. Mark's Place prepares sandwiches and other deli type food on the spot for visitors like us, as well as locals who...

Tried Mark's Place for the first time and I know why it is named Kauai's best plate lunch. As a Kama'aina (Hawaii resident), I have to say it's one of the best places in Hawaii to get a plate lunch!

Mark's Place is one of the best and most tasty take out spots on Kauai. They also cater and have provided the meals at many events I have attended. They offer a wide selection of local cuisine and all time favorites are sure to please. The staff is friendly and one of the hardest working on the island. Oh, so... More

Take out facility. Great plate lunch in Lihue. I recommend the beef teriyaki. You won't regret it. Chicken Katsu is good.
