The menu had a good variety and we were happy with our selection and the portion size. The staff is attentive and the setting is fun in the little town of Waimea. Felt like an old rodeo place atmosphere.

We stopped here for dinner after doing a long hike in the Waimea Canyon. If I had to do it over again, I probably wouldn't go back. Compared to the other options on the island, Wrangler's is a definite letdown. My steak was overcooked (medium rare should at least be pink), and everything lacked seasoning and flavor. My other half... More

After viewing the majestic canyon we were hungry and saw the wrangler restaurant so we decided to stop in for a bite to eat. We ordered the prime rib special sandwich and we both felt that it was mediocre at best. We should have just ordered the burger. The fries were tasty though and the service was fast.

Reasonable prices, good service. We stopped for a late lunch and were the only ones there, but the place was full with an early dinner crowd when we walked by a couple of hours later.

We make a trip to Wrangler's Steakhouse every time we are in Kauai. We think the mai tai's are some of the best on the island. And the food is always top notch. They always have a fresh fish option, but the steaks are what we come for. Affordable, and always hits the spot. Strongly recommend you make the trek... More

Stopped here after our drive to Waimea Canyon. The service was very good and so were the burgers & beers. I had a bacon/cheese burger that was grilled right outside the door and it was YUMMY! My girlfriend had a steak salad and it was beautiful fresh greens with a perfectly cooked flank steak. We had a couple of Longboard... More

Was visiting the West side and wanted to try out Wranglers for lunch. What a throwback....really unlike anything on the island but then the west side has always had a different vibe. Had one of the pork dishes (Kalua Pig if I recall). Small salad bar with soup included with the entree...some Korean things in it). Sat out on the... More

Have never tried Wranglers Steak House before since we don't get to the west side too often. Will be making a point to go out there at least once a month from now on! Great steaks and incredible pork chops!!! Can't believe we never stopped here before.

Awful! I sent my steak back and got the same with just fat. The wait staff is very nice, however rhe whole food experience is awful. I am easy to please and it was so awful.

This place is appealing on first sight. It does not have AC. Dining is inside a very warm building or outside in the back, next to the parking lot, or in the front along the main highway through town.The food is OK. The service is poor. It took quite a while to place an order and then a long time... More
