Very selective menu, best fish and chips $13.95 . Great hamburgers, shrimp sandwiches and corn beef sandwiches. Great service and portions for the price.

Hanalei Gourmet is located in a former school house in central Hanalei alongside some small retail stores. We had walked past it on our prior visits to Hanalei, but decided to look more closely this time.

We were surprised to realize the the "Gourmet" in their name is there for a reason! The food is well-prepared and delicious and reasonably priced. It is frequented be a lot of locals who all seem to know the staff well--certainly a good testimonial for repeat customers.

The only reason we didn't give it a top rating across the board was because it was noisy that night from a happy crowd at the full service bar (fortunately they quieted down after they were seated and began eating the great food) and one waitress who was very efficient but completely impersonal. Our primary waitress was warm and gracious, however.

We recommend the restaurant highly. Indeed, we now have another favorite spot to go on our next trip to Princeville!

While there is nothing outstanding here in terms of food, it had a very good vibe, with many regulars, hugging, and energetic waitresses. We had the good fortune to eat when 3 local mucisians played and sang traditional Hawaian music and local women danced the hula. The small restaurant was packed. The Mai Tais were delicious, though small. Crabcake appetizer was spicey and good. Encrusted fish special was so-so. As I left and walked past the very stayed and proper people of Bar acuda restaurant, drinking their martinis and white wine, i felt very fortunate to have had such a lively and pleasurable experience at Hanalei Gourmet. Appetizer was $10. Shared meal was $27. Mai Tais were $6 apiece

Hanalei is a beautiful place but the food is no match for our home town Portland but this place in a former school comes close to finding a taste that pleases. We have been here before in previous visits and remembered it as good and satisfying. We particularly remembered the fresh unpeeled shrimp in a garlic sauce as fun to eat and it remained a great choice. We added the grilled vegetable salad as a second choice and were completely satisfied. We would recommend it as the first choice for lunch in Hanalei in the mid range of cost.

Our group of 6 waited a while to get seated, but we enjoyed every minute once inside. Everyone liked their meal and drinks. There was an Oktoberfest special - large, heavy mug of Sam Adams for only $7.50 plus you get to keep the mug. Fish and steak are great. Old Bay Boil was fantastic! It was the first time I have had it and according to our friend from Maryland, authentic. I would go back just for the beer and shrimp - it was that good. Our server was attentive, hostess was okay.
