We inadvertently interrupted the locals coffee klatch trying to get an early breakfast to get on the Koloiki Ridge hike before the heat became stifling. The guys were all happily having coffee at 7:30 AM (at their regular tables?) and commenting on the news broadcast on a tv overhead. We ordered at the counter, and I didn't have to scan... More

We ate here twice during our recent visit. Good food, delicious bakery items, and the employees and owners were very friendly. Definitely worth it!

My wife and I visited Blue Ginger on the way back into town from Garden of the Gods and Polihua Beach. I heard from one of the employees at the Four Seasons to try the Loco Moco here. I'm glad I listened to her. The plate lunches are huge. I had the Loco Moco, which included two burgers, two eggs,... More

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.
