Enjoyable break from modern life. Simple, casual, inexpensive. Mahi sandwich was excellent. Soak up the vibe of unhurried life on the island of Lanai.

Had a delicious mahi mahi sandwich and salad here. Friendly staff, indoor or outdoor seating. Commune with locals. Reasonably priced, relaxing.

We eat breakfast here upon arriving on the island. A great spot downtown where the locals gather. Food is great and a large menu to select from.

The food is fairly good, service is fast and staff is nice. Must check it out while in Lanai for its popularity.

Just what we needed. Good food cooked fresh with good flavors. Honey chicken is delicious. The pot stickers were yummy too. Fresh sautéed veggies were loaded with flavor. Pan fried Mahi was simple and delicious. Friendly smiles at the counter and the game on the TV. There's no wonder this place is #1. We are going back for breakfast!

The Blue Ginger is a Plantation style cottage where you'll find many of the locals dining. They have a varied menu but some of the local items you may not know by name.As busy as it gets on the order line you may not get a chance to have the menu items described so many visitors go for the hamburger...

This is a small diner with hamburgers and fries type of food. They only take cash and check - no credit card. Takes a little while for the food to come out. Re food was tasty but no real healthy menu items.

Very good home-style breakfast. It's a combo carry-out and sit-down. Lots of locals eating here, which is always a great sign.

Excellent food at a very reasonable price! Highly recommended. The only recommendation I have to maintain the place, we did see some bugs running around.

Thank Archana G
