When I'm on Kauai, I usually stay at the Kauai Coast Beach Boy, and I ALWAYS make sure to eat on site at the Hukilau. The food never disappoints, nor does the service. You cannot top the ambiance - open air with a beautiful view...More

Food was generally good, but just came with plain rice or mashed potatoes. Drinks were good, but pricey. Appetizers were very good.

Sandra was our server and she was awesome. She knew the menu back-and-forth and was very helpful. We had the coconut shrimp as starters and the mixed grill, everything was great. No room for desert but know it would be great.

The service here is unreliable --- as is the food. It is a nice setting.... at least that doesnt change. The Wally's Salad is tiny. And, vegetarian options are extremely limited.
