We recently stopped at the Garden Island Grille for lunch while visiting the town of Koloa on Kauai. We were greeted warmly by Dawn, who showed us to a table overlooking the lovely garden area. She is a wonderful asset to this restaurant due to her extremely friendly and outgoing personality! She genuinely seemed like she cares about taking care of her customers. We each ordered tacos - - one order of fish tacos and one order of kalua pork tacos, which we shared to try both kinds. The beer was good, the food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Thanks, Dawn!

The food is tasty and prepared by a kitchen staff that obviously takes great pride in their product. The selections are reasonably priced, A great place for value family dining that won't break your holiday budget. Many different menu choices, hard to decide and looks and smells so delicious as the waiters pass your table to serve the other diners. Cocktails are unique and generous. There is also local live music entertainment most evenings consisting of nostalgic, romantic and happy Island sounds. This restaurant is in an adorable garden setting, with lots of movie memorabilia on the walls. it is extremely clean and well run with the owners working along side the staff. A local favorite, tucked away off the main street of Koloa town. This place is worth it, you won't be disappointed.

Food was excellent and service was fantastic. Our server was so friendly. There were geckos hanging out and the kids got so excited our server put out cherries so we could watch them eat. I can't say enough about this gem. Check it out!

Just returned from 10 days in kauai, the first three in Lihue and East Coast. On Saturday we came down to Koloa Town at Poi'pui to move into our timeshare condo at The Point in late afternoon. Being hungry and after 1pm, we decided to try this lively restaurant/bar. Happy hour was nice start, followed by fish n chips for me and BLT for my wife.

Our lunch was great. Very good fish, ono, I think. Moist cooked just right. Fries were perfect. The BLT also got high reviews for lots of good bacon cooked just right and good bread. Our little 85 yr old waitress was funny, knew everything and everyone. We would come back any time. We read later that it got top reviews.

Thank jq
