“Not Hula food.”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Compared to Hawaiian food in Hawaii, only the macaroni salad and rice make it identifiable. Not good enough to go back; I only tried it once for lunch with my friend. Also, they had no desserts!

“What a great find!!”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Great, very authentic, owner-operated and detail-oriented place for a fun casual dinner. I ended up here since I was driving around looking for a spot for dinner - saw the signs for Grass Shack cafe and followed them to the back corner of a shopping center. Lo and behold as I stepped through the door I felt as I as transported miles away to Hawaii. Thoroughly authentic in every detail. The owners are on site and were very welcoming. I enjoyed my well-prepared meal as I thumbed through the current issue of "Honolulu" magazine and listed to Hawaiian music. If you are in Medford or the area this could easily become a favorite haunt of yours as there are many dishes to try. Check out their website (linked here) which was very interesting too. Skip the chains and fast-food joints and find this place soon you will be fascinated and not disappointed.

“Unique”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

This is a fun little place that is trying some different things. First, the food is very good. You place your order at the counter, which help keeps cost down. The owners are super friendly and work hard making sure you are happy with your meal. They have live Hawaiian music on weekends, but I have not been there for it.

“Sooo good”
Reviewed September 1, 2011

Neat little place with the nicest owners that are always there. Everything ive tried there is tasty and at a good price. Dont waste your time with Noho's. Trust me if you like island food like kaula pig and ribs this is it. Mac salad is real good too. Live music if your lucky too. Give it a shot!
