The fish store attached is good and has quality food but the dolphin was overpriced and the food was average at best. With the amazing local produce and access to fresh fish they should be far better than they are.

Recently had a meal there on a trip to Kauai. Drinks and sushi at the bar were great but when we sat and ordered fish it was basically inedible and no one in our party finished their meal. Stick to the sushi if you go there. It is worth going for the sushi but the entrees were over cooked and very disappointing.

I can never get enough of the teriyaki ahi which is GREAT. Miss the old large salads, but who cares with such wonderful fresh fish. My wife had the grilled opah and she was as enthusiastic as I was. Been here for years and hope it stays for many more. My only complaint is no reservations and sorta noisy. But who cares as it has great fish.

A great place to eat, the first time we had lunch there and we had to wait half hour, we sat outside, it was beautiful. We had the Fin sandwich and sushi was so good we came back for dinner and we only waited for 5 min, we sat inside and got the lobster, the fish of the day and the scallop dishes and they were all yummy.. will def go again next time.
