The word lanai means porch or veranda, and at this elegant open-air eatery, the outdoor beauty of Kauai will surround you as conversation is enjoyed over a fine meal. The Lanai, a family owned and operated restaurant invites you to join them on their veranda, where tiki torches are blazing, the soft glow of patio lights twinkles overhead, and the lifestyle of the islands comes easy.
Opening at 11:30am, the lunch menu features local favorites such as the kalua pulled pork and catch of the day sandwich. For dinner, you’ll definitely want to start off with the kale and beet salad or Hawaiian ceviche. Mains include items such and shrimp and grits, steak, and an upscale twist on the loco moco, a local favorite that includes an egg and meat over rice. Be sure to save room for dessert, because you won’t want to miss the refreshing key lime cheesecake. Kick back and stay awhile with drinks in hand. The Lanai in Kauai offers a variety of specialty cocktails, wine, and local beer. Happy Hour is 3-5:00pm daily – perfect timing for a post-beach drink.
