The atmosphere is old Hawaii. We were a family of 10 that went to the cookhouse on New Year's Eve. They do not take reservations, so we went early --at 6:30. There was no room on the outside benches, so we ate at 2 tables...More

We stopped in here for lunch one day during our Moloka'i vacation, despite having read a few negative reviews. We received good service from the lady who was apparently the only waitperson on Sunday. The place got quite busy after we arrived. All tables were...More

A must stop for breakfast. Right on the main road and some indoor and outdoor seating. Cook to order. Nothing fancy but hot fresh hometown cooking. Don't worry if the place looks like grandmas decorations on the inside.

Wonderful rural Hawaii restaurant. Nothing fancy, but good food. Local after local dropped in to eat or take out. The cheeseburger was out of this world! Perfect iced tea with free refills.

The girls were getting a little hungry and stopped at the Cookhouse for a burger and some fries. The food was good and the girls were happy. With a full stomach we crossed the street to the Kulaapuu Market which is a historic plantation store....More

We've been on Molokai for one week and have tried lots of places. Haven't really had any bad food at all, but this place was the best! My husband had the roast pork (on special) and I had a combo plate with beef teriyaki and...More

Great place to stop for lunch. Whether you sit inside or out on picnic tables, good food is here. My husband ordered the daily fresh fish and he wasn't disappointed. I had the breaded chicken cutlet, large piece came w/cole slaw and fries. Service is...More

It is highly unlikely as they are very non-technical. If you want to try for a gift certificate I would try either Paddlers Inn or Molokai Pizza. they are both quite a bit larger and are more tech savvy. Just google them... More
