“Good food and an Excellent view”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

The wife had a burning need for a cheese burger so we went where I knew we could get exactly what she wanted. A double Kobe burger, big and juicy satisfied her need. I had the Big Kahuna burger with a couple of ice cold Downtown Brown drafts. While the food was not overly creative, it has been always very good and I have enjoyed it for more than 20 years. They have at least 25 tables on the beach front and the people watching is great, with whale watching there too. I cant speak for dinner, but lunch was fun, beautiful and exactly what we wanted. The sunset views from both levels is better nowhere in the world.

“Can't beat the prices for the food, ambiance”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Ate twice in one day at Leilani's. Certainly can't beat the prices for the locale. The food is great, as is the service. Would definitely recommend!

“Okay food, excellent mai tai's.”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Rude greeter/hostess and not very clear on difference between restaurant upstairs and downstairs. View is beautiful, but very hot as they put down shades and prevents breeze from coming through. Food was okay, we all ordered cheeseburgers and they were average. But smoothies and mai tai's are awesome. Also ordered Ahi and shrimp ceviche appetizers, both were very good. My suggestion, drinks and appetizers at sunset!

THE location for casual delicious dinners & watching the sunset at Whaler's Village in Kaanapali. Kid friendly, delicious cocktails & the best fish tacos around!
