They transplanted an old wooden house inside a building. Stepping through the doorway, you are transported back in time. The mother serves as hostess, the daughter helps serve and the father was in the kitchen. They didn't know much English and so we had to make do with our dictionary-based japanese.
Tables were traditional. No cheater holes on the floor.
Favorite Dish: With our little Japanese, we managed to tell them we wanted the Hakata specialty and their set dinner. The specialty was seafood omelette but unlike any omelette I have tasted. The flavor was so subtle and it lingered deliciously in your mouth.
The set dinner was an 8 course dinner which started with sashimi, the freshest I've tasted. Followed by cold tofu that was so delicate yet firm (a contradiction that I could not put into words). Next came soup, a bit spicy for me but husband loved it. Followed by 2 meat dishes and a squid dish, then some greens and finally ice cream. Everything was superb!
The only downside was that I was wearing tight denims and I had to unbutton my pants. ha ha Plus its difficult to sit Japanese style with denims.

If you wanna try something a little risky, this might be what you're looking!! I found this restaurant on Hakata Station's basement (again) and what clicked me is that the price isn't as expensive as I expected. Like what I had that evening, an Ika set; Fugu Slice appitizer + fresh white squid Sashimi + Tempura Tago (giant squid) + rice + soup + a glass of beer at only 1500Y. And another Fugu Nabe (hotpot) at a very reasonable price.
-- Only restaurants with license can sell Fugu, as we know it's poisonous --
Favorite Dish: FUGU the blowfish....

If something doesn't popped up, let's start at Hakata Station's basement. Wide-varieties of food and snack; from pastry to Traditional Japanese.
This time I want to recommend Hakata Ramen. Typical Hakata Ramen in thick white pork-bone soup, the noodle is a little slimmer than ramen from other parts of the country, topped with 2 slices of shashu pork slices and spring onions. This set (in the picture) has a bowl of ramen, Mentaiko (pickled cod roe) rice and Gyoza (fried dumplings) for only 740 Yen.
Favorite Dish: The set with Gyoza and Mentaiko rice.

This place is actually several Ramen places, providing Ramen from all over Japan. Choose from the dozens of options available at each place. After wandering around and looking at the options in each restaurant, choose what you want from the machines outside the restaurant. There are no English descriptions, so if you don't know Japanese, just pick one and go with it (or you could ask the waiters to clarify). Unfortunately, for vegeterians, all the ramen soup is meat based.
Favorite Dish: The Ramen here was above average compared to the Ramen that had in other places in Japan, but it wasn't significantly different. The great thing about this place is the variety, and the ability to compare Ramen form different parts of Japan.

We all know the ubiquitous Hard Rock Cafe. For those of you wanting American style food, or who just want one of those t-shirts, here it is!
The restaurant is located at Hawks Town Mall in Momochi.
*** Just a note: I didn't actually eat here, hence the lack of ratings below. I'm sure it's of the same quality as all the others.

Hakata Station has an entire level devoted to one of my favorite things - food! There are dozens of little restaurants and cafes offering all sorts of fare. If you're looking for something Western, stop for some pasta or pizza at one of the delis. Want to try some traditional Japanese treats? Head to one of the sushi bars or noodle shops. I tried two little places while I was there: a pub-style place offering pasta and yaki, and a sushi bar (a must!).
Prices will vary depending on where you eat.

The small riverside restaurants make an enjoyable place to eat out under the stars and watch the night life go by around you. These little establishments are more numerous in the summer season and stride the modest night club / red light district - pretty civilized.
Favorite Dish: Ramen

Fukuoka has so many great eating establishments. There are quite a few beer gardens and yatai which are outdoor eating stalls.
I think the best ones can be found in Tenjin and Nakasu area both of which can be reached for 100yen by bus.
