The breakfast buffet was awesome - but it is very pricey for $30. Luckily, our 5 year old daughter was able to eat for free with the purchase of an adult buffet. They have a very nice omelet station and so many other options, so we were happy. If you want to eat on the Marriott property, it is a nice place for breakfast. However, they do close at 10:00AM which in my opinion seemed early -- we came back from a helicopter ride and wanted to get breakfast at 10:30 and were unable to do it there. :(

Went for family dinner. Ordered from the Friday special menu of prime rib and fish. Salad bar was included, shrimp soup was awesome. Dessert was good. Environment was great. Service was great, but the wait was a bit long.

This is a good poolside place for lunch or a mid day quick bite but close to terrible for diner. Was there on Fathers Day, made reservations but did not know until we arrived that there was a "Father's Day menu" only. The three of us ordered the prime rib which came back either way under cooked or way over cooked. It tasted terrible and with the exception of a couple of bites taken, we all sent it back. This diner came with the "ice cream desert bar" which at 7:30PM was unmanned, with a line of people waiting for service. I waited for 15 minutes and went back to the table. When the server brought the check I complained about the meal and the lack of service ad all she could say was "Sorry". I asked for the manager and was told that he was not there. Two days later we went back for diner to try it again but found when we arrived that it was "Prime Rib night", and was told that was all that they were serving. We did not stay.
My Father's Day dinner fiasco cost me over $200 for a major let down.

We stay at the Marriott in Lihue often. Always seem to have a meal or two at Kukui's. The food here is great and so is the service. The prices are way too high, though, for what you are getting. When our laziness overcomes our thriftiness, we eat here. Otherwise, we drive off property and get a similar experience, at literally half the price.
