Loco coco shave ice

Loco Coco is a food stand serving delicious, all-natural shaved ice topped with local fruit.

Reviewed By Dumdoc - Boise

This is a shave ice shack that is almost great. It has delicious sauces on the shave ice, but they don't have the balance of flavor and texture with the ice cream at the bottom quite perfect. It is as good as any shave ice that we had on Kauai, but not as good as Vintage shave ice on Oahu.

Brick Oven Pizza

Reviewed By sabers86 - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

We ordered their largest pizza with black olives, italian sausage, and mushrooms. We chose to have the wheat crust (which we never had on a pizza before). We could have had garlic along the perimeter of the pizza but my wife objects to garlic so we said no to that. We certainly have had larger (large pizzas). It wasn't bad but felt it was slightly overpriced ended up with one coke also and with a good tip totaled $44.00.

Anake's Juice Bar

Aloha! We serve freshly made Juices, Acai bowls, smoothies, wraps, sandwiches and parfaits. Located in Kukuiula store next to Da Crack, Outfitters and Seasport Divers. Just look for the yellow submarine. Mahalo!!

Reviewed By comingtoyourcity - Kirkland, Washington

Yes the sticky buns and shave ice around the island are wonderful. But sometimes you need a healthy alternative. The juice, smoothies and acai bowls at Anake's are wonderful! The pictures other people have posted don't lie. It's hard to choose which one to pick and no matter what you pick, you won't be sorry. Must try!! It's about $8-9 per person.

Kalaheo Steak & Ribs

Reviewed By Malice6 - Bainbridge Island, Washington

This is our favorite Island dinner place.
Starting with great hospitality and decent pricing, this is our destination for Prime Rib Thirsday through Sunday.
I find the appetizer portion pork ribs to be an ample serving as a main course for dinner and beef prime rib enough for two.
Get away from tourist trap resort places and come here for real American dinners.
Kids menu items are ample for pre teens.

Makai Sushi

Reviewed By Chapsbaby - Atlanta, GA

After reading all the great reviews decided to walk over from Koala Landing Resort. As many reviewers indicated, it's in a small, local grocery store that we thought was cool - but others might be freaked out. Makai Sushi is basically a walk up stand and it's made in front of you. Two people were behind the counter - a gal who was quite pleasant and a guy making the bowls. Perhaps my expectations from all the reviews were too high as my husband and I both thought the prices were high and the food average. $ 16 dollars for a Gorilla bowl at a walk up stand in a grocery store. Glad we tried Makai Sushi but don't plan on going again during our next visit to Kauai - will try Da Crack which is right next door. Do regret not trying the Poke bowls from the grocery store, Ishihara, in Waimea - heard their food is great at good prices - also on the hit list next trip.
