Skip it unless you really need something to eat. Average food reasonably priced but you can find better off the mountain.

Stopped for a quick lunch after Waimea Canyon State Park visit. Interesting place. Museum was nice and the grounds are well kept. Looks like a spot for hunters to stay. Restaurant was clean and the staff was very friendly. Food was just average and they...More

My friends and I stopped here. We were seated right away but it was a little confusing as to which employee was taking care of what - bar vs restaurant order. The food was good and served hot and we enjoyed the drinks from the...More

Our party ordered the Lau Lau special, Apple Salad and Pulled Pork dinner. The dinners were much better than expected. Our order slip was lost in the shuffle so we were awarded a free lillikoi (passion fruit) chiffon pie with whipped creme. OMG! It's the...More

We didn't know about this place until driving by. After going to the end of the canyon and hiking the thought of lunch sounded good. The menu wasn't enormous but the selection was fine and the prices were average. Everything tasted good and the waiters...More

The burger was awesome, and the pulled pork outstanding, but for goodness sake, get the coconut pie! It's not a coconut cream, more of a straight coconut. Out of this world! Hike the Canyon Trail to work off the calories.

We stopped in here to look for some food while enjoying Waimea Canyon. We had a nice burger and bought a yummy lilikoi (passion fruit) ice cream pop. The burger was good, but pretty expensive at $10 with no fries or chips. The whole menu...More

We ventured into Waimea Canyon this morning and after stopping at all the viewing points on our way, found ourselves at the Kokee Lodge Restaurant. A simple restaurant with little fuss, but the food was great. The best kalua pork we've tasted so far.
