The Deli is located at the northern end of the Big Island in Hawi. It isn't anything fancy, but the food is simply excellent, and the service is small-town friendly. Loved it.

Super-delicious reuben and generous in size to boot! Awesome selection of beverages, including several beers. Nice selection of sandwiches; reasonable price given location and quality of meals

We went to this restaurant based on reviews on Tripadvisor. We had just done the flume ride with Kohala Ditch Adventures (awesome) and were looking for some lunch in the nearby area. We drove past the Lighthouse Deli a couple times looking for it. Even though it is on the main road through Hawi it is still a little bit of a challenge to find. There was parking on the street available. The Lighthouse Deli is not very big inside, just a few tables, with a few more outside. You order up at the deli counter and then they bring it to you. 2 of us split the meatball grinder and 2 split the turkey and stuffing sandwich. We also got one of their pretzels. That was plenty of food for 2 kids and 2 adults. My 2 daughters said the meatball grinder was the best they ever had (and they are picky!). My husband and I also loved the fresh turkey sandwich. The food was so good! The owner who took our order and brought us out the food was so gracious and nice. He was passing out bowls of kettle corn to the customers and checking on everyone. If it wasn't so far from where we were staying in Waikoloa we would have gone back another day as well. Highly recommend it if you are looking for good, quick food in a nice, relaxed environment.

We had such a wonderful visit on a rainy day in Hawi. These guys made us feel very welcome, despite the fact that we were obvious tourists. Even though the price was steeper than we are accustomed to paying back home, it was one of the best sandwiches I've ever eaten! The place was clean, welcoming and had a wonderful beverage and meal choice selection. Highly recommended!

We stopped in for lunch on our way to Kohala Zipline. They have a terrific menu of sandwiches, salads and more. They also offer beer and wine and had we had more time, I would have enjoyed lingering with a cold draft beer and sharing some appetizers with my teenage sons. Definitely worth a stop when in the Kohala region of the Big Island.
