Every time we drove by, we could see that it was a busy restaurant. We went there for dinner, and if you like steak, the steak is large and tasty. However, the other menu items weren't that great, especially for the price. It was nice that they had a salad bar (small one).

Great place to eat on Kauai, in Waimea! Great burgers and fries. I had the burger with mushrooms & bacon and husband had the plain one. Both excellent. Great fries. The Plantation tea is excellent. No sweet tea here, but they add juice to the tea and it is delicious! You won't be disappointed.

We stopped for a late lunch after seeing Waimea Canyon. Service was friendly but very slow. The salad bar was a disappointment. However, my cheeseburger was excellent, and my husband's New York steak was above average. They have both indoor and outdoor seating and a small gift shop. I was able to buy a locally made angel ornament and meet... More

Arrived before the annual Christmas Parade at exactly the wrong time. Place was empty and the staid ladies at the front desk gave us no hope of a beer and a snack at 3:45. Fortunately for us, the young man downstairs in the bar took pity on us. A couple of Fat Tires, fries and calamari later and I was... More

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
