I would add

Keoki's in Poipu (it's fun there, but we prefer the bar area to the dining room)

Duke's at Nawiliwili Harbour - we've eaten upstairs in the dining room and their fresh fish every night prepared the way you want is excellent - good salad bar too. Have heard the bar downstairs is good too, and we'll be trying that next month.

The other guys have already given you a good list. in addition, we always make a stop at Duane's Ono Char burger (little shack type place along the highway at Anahola) and Ono Family Restaurant in Kapaa -- great place for breakfast.

Roy's in poipu has really good food - best on the island, imo.

Keoki's is fun and okay, and scotties is good if you feel like BBQ (the beef brisket sandwhich there was really good).

The best shrimp I ever had was from the Green Truck parked on the side of Lawai Road (on the way to Poipu to the right for Spouting Horn just past the Y). She's been there for years, around lunch time. She cooks right there in the truck. Don't let the appearance scare you, incredibly wonderful shrimp with garlic! Cheap and lots of shrimp.

I can't wait for September when we'll be back on Kauai....

Good call on Duane's. Forgot about that. I always stop there too.

Also add Tropical Taco up in Hanalei.
