What to Eat in Lanai

Though it's the smallest inhabited island in Hawaii, Lanai manages to provide a diverse range of culinary offerings. If you're on a budget and in search of a local haunt, head to Blue Ginger Café, which past visitors recommended for its burger, homemade bread and relaxed setting. Pele's Other Garden Deli is equally lauded for its sandwiches and pizzas. Coffee Works – one of the only coffee shops on the island – is another must-visit spot if you need a cup of joe and some souvenir coffee to take back to the mainland.

If you're in the mood to splurge, Lanai has you covered there too thanks its handful of high-end resort eateries. Lanai City Bar & Grille in the Hotel Lanai specializes in local dishes, including venison, and offers live music on the patio. Meanwhile, ONE FORTY offers a menu of wagyu beef and seasonal Hawaiian seafood inside its perch at the scenic Four Seasons Resort Lanai. This is also where you'll find Lanai's own Nobu, the acclaimed sushi restaurant with locations around the world. Rounding out Lanai's cache of formal dining establishments is Views, the lunch-only restaurant at the Manele Golf Course, known for its (no surprise) ocean views and Hawaiian small plates (called pupus).
