While visiting the canyon, we stopped in for lunch. The open air eating in Hawaii is great except when it is 90+ degrees outside. Nevertheless, we had a nice lunch. Cheeseburgers for everyone except me who said they were really good. I had the pork cabbage and rice Hawaiian dish which was very healthy and delicious. The accompanied salad/soup bar... More

After a day of incredible hiking and views at Waimea Canyon, we were ready for a relaxing evening and a good dinner. The Wrangler was perfect. Attentive service, friendly, helpful staff and delicious meals. My "make no fuss" husband appreciated the low-key birthday dessert

Staff really nice, Steak was really good with the Pelehu sauce, the peach cobbler was so so delicious!!! If you decide to get the peach cobbler order early it takes 20 min. If you don't like peach, their Bread pudding is also excellent

We have been to Waimea many times and never tried this restaurant because i am a vegetarian. This time we checked out their menu and there are good veggie options. We stopped early in the day to see the menu and were met by two very friendly women at the entrance. They showed us the salad bar and made us... More

We had a nice and relaxed dinner here with Sashimi at the beginning, which was very delicious and tender, the fish almost melted in our mouths. We also had the Filet Mignon which was fantastic. Just one little point of criticism: my "medium-well" order was pretty well done, luckily it didn't ruin the taste. The meat was tender and juicy,... More

We stopped in for lunch on our way through Waimea and had an amazing meal. I was served the best piece of fish I have ever eaten- the most tender, meaty, marlin sandwich. The staff was super friendly and helpful, the atmosphere was perfect- we sat on the covered porch which was very private and breezy. Bathrooms were clean, they... More

We really like the food here...except for the steaks. The cooks should get better trained on a perfect medium rare. My steak never comes out right. The salad bar is great! But, what we found out about many places around here including this Wranglers, is the hiring of felons to cook food for people. I can't conscientiously eat where felons... More

We went to Wranglers twice on our last visit to Kauai. We had the specials and really enjoyed them. My lobster was perfectly cooked and my husband's steaks with the daily special sauce were very good. We had very attentive service and the server was happy to talk about the special family recipes that produced the various items on the... More
