Closed 7/4/17 and what a shame. Just reopened as something else, but can't find the name. We ate at the newly opened place and the service was awful, food good but they've got a lot of issues to work out before we'll be dining there...More

Driving to Ha'ena and Ke'e Beach this was about the only place to eat after Hanalei. Located next to an isolated hotel on a windswept beach. Owner was friendly and provided great service. Steamed local clams and a Greek salad hit the spot
