    Canoe’s Lanai Restaurant: Canoe’s Lanai Restaurant

    by JRiel Updated Apr 4, 2011

    A typical hole-in-the-wall eatery, this place is well known by the locals. Formerly known as Tanigawa's, recently remodelled and under new management, this breakfast, brunch and lunch shack is just that, as it closes every day by 1 p.m.

    Don't expect tablecloths or winelists, this is homecooking in it's natural form, hot plates and hot cakes served right off the greasy griddle.

    Thurs-Tues 6:30am-1pm, Closed Wed

    Favorite Dish: Kalbi ribs and tempura shrimp combo

    Hawaiian plate lunch (lau lau, kalua pig, poi, lomi lomi salmon, mac salad)

    Shrimp burger

    Borge's special (bacon, egg and cheese sandwich)

    Crispy gau gee mein

    Lots of places to eat: Stop to eat in Lana'i City

    by malianrob Written Aug 5, 2009

    There are not too many places to eat other than in Lana'i City. You can eat even if you arent a guest at one of the resorts but Lana'i City has great food and its a nice place to hang out at.
    We went to Blue Ginger Cafe and the food was great. The people were nice and it was a relaxing atmosphere. I heard Canoe Lanai was good too and the burgers are popular here. Pele's Other Garden is another popular place but I didnt try it on this visit, Maybe next time. But I here you can grab a boxed lunch from here and go to the beach or have a picnic. Cafe 565 is known for their pizza. So these are just a few places to choose from but there are more.

    Restaurant owners Mark and Barb Zigmond are East Coast transplants, and their homestates carry over in the overall feeling of this New York style Deli & Bistro. It's open for lunch and dinner, and staffed with friendly and efficient workers.

    The only place on the island that offers beer on tap, this a favorite stop for tourists, hotel workers and locals alike.

    Mon-Fri 10am-2:30pm; Mon-Sat 5-8pm

    Favorite Dish: French Dip sandwich

    B.L.T. with avocado

    Michelob Amberbock beer on tap

    Blue Ginger Cafe: Hot Plate King

    by JRiel Written Aug 11, 2007

    This restaurant is the islands indisputable king when it comes to hot plates done local style. For decades now, the manangs under the blue tin roof have been serving the community their fresh baked goods and brown gravy soaked lunch plate specials.

    Recently reviewed online at, this little cafe sitting on seventh street is a real crowd pleaser.

    Favorite Dish: Loco Moco with Mushrooms

    Shrimp Tempura

    Roast Pork

    Chicken Katsu

    The challenge and Manele Bay: The food! the Views!

    by whitneyone Written May 15, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After our trip into town for lunch, which somehow we missed. I was FAMISHED.
    Waitress brought me bread and apoligized that the butter was frozen as they didn't serve bread until dinner. Right then I knew these are people who go out of their way to make you happy. and then there was the FOOD!

    Favorite Dish: Salt and Pepper Chips, potato chip style and made to order were heaven. served with a maui onion dip I didn't think i'd want. LOL ended up asking for more.
    Who knew that fish and chips could be this good? Mahi Mahi, deep fried on a bed of seasonsed skinny fries was just outstanding.
    mahi mahi sandwich with ginger and wasabi...and a substitution of a ceaser salad in place of yet more of the salt and pepper chips was a nice touch at no charge.
    We had heard the food was 'decent'. If this is only DECENT then i have NO idea what people are thinking!!
