Wide menu and local supported, very casual. Burger was very good and the specials looked really good. Next time we will try the chicken.

Had dinner here one night during our stay on Lanai as a break from the high end meals at the Four Seasons. It was also important to us to eat where the locals eat and support a true mom and pop establishment. Blue Ginger was fresh, authentic, well priced, and a true local spot. Had saiman for the first time... More

This would be our local haunt, if we lived on Lanai. We actually came here twice in a day, because we loved the atmosphere, the food and chatting to the staff there. We'll be back next time we come to Lanai!

Friendly staff with seemingly 100s of options, ranging from grilled mahi mahi to hamburger steak plates with macaroni salad. Side salad consists of head lettuce, grated carrots, and a single piece of cucumber. CASH/CHECK ONLY. With few options for meals in Lanai City it is frequented by locals and guests alike.

I had the tuna melt, which wasn't very good, and my daughter had an onion bagel, which was stale. I couldn't recommend this place to anyone, though they seem to have a locals following.

Stopped on our first visit to Lanai for a bit of lunch. Cute little cafe that had the greatest fresh bread smells! We both decided on the Mahi Fish Sandwich with fries. It was fantastic. The piece of fish was very large, lightly breaded and very moist. The fries were hot, crisp and definitely not greasy -a big plus. The... More

This is a great little place to get a bite to eat while visiting the island. The food is made to order so a little patience in required. The food was good and our group of 9 were all pleased with our selections. They do have a good amount to choose from as well!

I had a great club sandwich and everyone else's food was equally good. This cafe has genuinely friendly people. We sat outside and enjoyed the "comings and goings" on a Sunday. This is not fancy...but sometimes the basics are just what you need.

Thank Glenkare
