“Love it”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

We've been to Leilani's many times. Had to make another visit on this trip. Great beach views right along the Kaanapali beachwalk at Whaler's Village. Food is good. Drinks are good. Staff is great. Highly recommend the fish tacos!

“Lunch maybe, definitely not dinner”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

Ended up at Leilanis based on the recommendation of a local concierge. Maybe he misunderstood our request. Great location on the beach side of the Whalers village shopping area. Service was friendly and efficient. Overall the food was average to disappointing and resulting pricing is completely out of whack. Specifics include their top listing beef dish, the Teriyaki sirloin, which was minuscule, tough and flavorless. Another of our foursome had the vegetarian plate anchored by roasted sweat potato. Flavor was ok, but a tiny portion goes for $27. Our dining partners had an Asian Spicy Ahi Tuna and the Filet. The filet was in the same category as the sirloin. The ahi was the lone entree that receives a "good" rating. They have great warm sourdough bread and desserts. All in all, a very disappointing meal.

“Relaxing lunch on the beach”
Reviewed August 20, 2014 via mobile

We had a relaxing lunch on the beach walk. Our table was on the beach walk level under an awning. We had a great view of the ocean and the beach walk.
The service was good.
The food and drinks were good. My fish and chips were good and the fish was moist. The fries were good. The hamburgers looked good. My group ordered three different types of burgers.

“Great food & great view”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

Leilani's on the Beach was great - yummy burgers, fresh fish and great appetizers too. We loved the view of the beach. We had an excellent dessert there as well! Not cheap but dining in Hawaii is always kind of pricey!
