Description: Gaylord's offers one of Kauai's most beautiful settings for lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch. Located on the ground floor of the historic Kilohana Plantation home, diners are seated around an open-air courtyard with views of the plantation grounds and Mt. Waialeale in the distance. Our kitchen uses only the freshest, seasonal ingredients supporting our local farmers and fishermen. Our 67-acre sustainable farm provides much of the produce and herbs used in our dishes and cocktails. Menu items include starters like fresh Ahi Poke, Seafood Spring Rolls and Organic Greens Salads; Local Fish, Meat and Vegetarian Entrees; and Banana Cream Pie for Dessert! After your meal take a walk around the Kilohana grounds, shop in our assorted boutiques, visit the rum shop or take a ride on the plantation train. Join us at Gaylord's to enjoy the best of what Kauai has to offer in island food and experience. Call for reservations and details on weekly entertainment. Memorable by day...Unforgettable by Night.

Loved the food....but only had a couple of options with the Plantation Owners dinner prior to the Luau Kalamaku. After dinner escorted directly to front row seats to the show. Great tour after dinner.

Dinner was in a beautiful courtyard with a live musician adding to the ambiance. Very romantic. My wife and I had beautifully cooked fresh fish that was completely ruined by a punishing amount of salt. My daughter had pasta with "prawns" that was ok but the prawns were mediocre frozen shrimp. Nice place for a salad and the drinks were ok but the chef needs to learn to season the food.

This was a wonderful way to end our trip. We started the evening walking the beautiful grounds, enjoying the farm animals and gardens. The atmosphere for dining is so charming, I felt like I was in a Charleston estate. Dinner was exceptional- large portions and a great menu variety. Definitely don't miss the chicken and waffles!!!!! Thank you Gaylord's!

We have dined at Gaylord's several times over the past decade, but I have to say this time was by far the best. The food and service were excellent, even something as "typical" as the country greens salad was outstanding! The setting is amazing, an old sugar plantation - Kilohana - and in the beautiful mansion home of the former manager. Mostly outdoor dining and just a lovely beautiful setting. AND what really took it over the top was Hank - the pianist - who we learned has been a concert pianist since he was 11 years old. He can play just about any song you request, and does a fantastic job. You can't have background music any better to make for the best ambiance ever! He's only there 3 or 4 nights a week, so call ahead.

Lunch is an excellent option at this site. Without a doubt, I had one of the most attractive Cobb Salads. It was tasty, quite large, with grilled chicken, lovely avocado, plus many other ingredients. The presentation was second to none. Others in our party, enjoyed the Ruben sandwiches. Main courses were affordable and under $20 per person.

This was a return visit and we looked forward to their banana pie. It was good, but we preferred their past presentation of more like an individual tart than a slice of pie. Plus, at about $9+ per slice, the pie is now off limits.
