Good food and drinks. The bartender was the son of the wonderful lady that served us at the hotel restaurant. The waitress a polish girl that came to visit a friend and stayed, was friendly and advised us well on what to ordered. It was a fun place. Expensive.

Enjoyed a relaxing dinner in a dining room with local history. Soup and fish entrée were both delicious. Menu changed from previous visits when the focus was on BBQ and steaks, new menu is lighter with options ranging from hamburgers, to pasta, to chicken and fish dishes. Service was attentive. Would visit again.

Enjoyed the fresh interesting food offered at the Lanai City Grille located in the Lanai Hotel. We stayed at the Four Seasons Hotel and wanted some alternative choices for dinner and the locals all suggested Lanai City Grille.

We ate her several times and loved it. Staff was awesome and food really good. The only thing not so good was the mud pie. All else great!
