Great local music on Thursday evenings. Had delicious lunches and dinners. Service on island time, but that's fine with us.

This was a wonderful restaurant..... the owner is charming and the staff incredible! Our server Jeri was amazing. You definitely feel the " Aloha spirit" The prices were great and the food was wonderful. You can even BYOB ( seriously) I would definitely give the Cookhouse another visit! Can't wait to visit the magical island of Molokai again!

Anything and everything is wonderful! Most dishes can be shared as they are huge! Cash only. Indoor and outdoor seating. As in all thing is Moloka'i - "if you are in a hurry you are on the wrong island" - order your food, sit back, chat with people and the delicious food will arrive in the proper time needed to...

Hubby thought fish was bland. My ribs were okay. It was the most expensive meal we had on vacation and I did want to like it more. I upped it to 4 stars because of the really friendly servers.

The rental car people told us to go so we did. Good food and lots of it. Actually we were glad we split the omelet and potatoes. Super tasty and so much food. Made to order so prepare to wait!

If you're looking for a hearty breakfast on Molokai this is the place. The coffee is good, the bacon perfectly done and the pancakes are great fuel for an active day of exploring the island.

Totally huge meals! Very tasty! Lot's of Aloha in this food. Loco Moco for breakfast will mean you don't have to eat the rest of the day!

Every thursday, this small restaurant serves prime rib. My wife and I really enjoy it, and usually get it to go so we can eat at home. It's one of just a handful of restaurants on island that serves a decent meal. As a retired chef and food blogger here on Molokai, I would recommend this restaurant.
