One of the best finds on Molokai! The hot bread at 9pm is the BEST and I love the adventure! We bought bread and cookies during the day - wonderful coconut bread and the cookies were great too! Coconut, of course! :) The staff is full of aloha - so nice and friendly! This really IS a MUST DO! Not only the hot bread at night, but it is a great place to grab some great food and enjoy!
Rude counter girl. Dirty tables. Filthy restroom. Greasy food. It's one thing to be "authentic" and unpretentious, another to not seem to care.
Wow! "The works bread" is worth the trip! You must go! 8:00PM, be there!

Maka’s Korner

Reviews:
Food is pretty basic but good. They have a bunch of different burgers so I tried the Teri-chicken burger. It was good but not spectacular. Quality of chicken was good. Bun was excellent. The wife really enjoyed her Mahi Mahi plate and the sauce that came with it.
One of my favorite places to eat in Kaunakakai I guess. The Mahi Mahi plate is really good. Compared to Paddler's, their prices are decent, you get more food, and it is way faster. You can also eat outside, which is rare in Kaunakakai where most places are indoors; however, the flies are a real inconvenience.
Maka's is awesome!! There food is fresh and made to order. I've loved everything I've ever ordered from here. It's a cute little corner restaurant with sitting outside. I know the owner and they keep the place very clean and they always have specials daily. Currently they are only open for breakfast and lunch but they are planning on being open for dinner soon. Now to get to the food. My all time favorite here is the Kalbi. I usually just get the mini plate because it's a pretty big serving for lunch but the regular plate of course comes with rice and Mac salad but you can substitute with green salad. The Kalbi is onolicious!!! I also love the onion rings and cheeseburgers. The teriyaki wrap and salad are also good. Reasonably priced!

Molokai Burger

20 W Kamehameha V Hwy
Kaunakakai, 96748
Reviews:
Good food on Molokai is very hard to find. The reviews were not great for this restaurant so we were worried. We both got the Molokai burger, his with meat and mine with a veggie patty. Burger, cheese, lettus, Terri sauce, BBQ sauce, mayo and onion straws. This pregnant lady was very happy and very full at the end of the meal.
If there was a Teddy's on Moloka'i, this would be it! Fortunate that a friend of mine wanted to fly to Moloka'i just to have lunch and we decided on Moloka'i Burger. The inside of this place looks exactly like Teddy's Bigger Burger. Very clean and spacious which made the dining experience very pleasant. Moloka'i Burger is located just at the beginning of Kaunakakai or at the Mile 0 marker of Moloka'i.. From the airport it is about 6 miles so plan on ground transportation if you are flying to Moloka'i, the island is bigger than you think! I had the Paniolo Burger Meal which was the a Moloka'i Beef patty with BBQ sauce and an onion ring. It was very good. I actually prefer this burger to Teddy's. The fries were thick cut and cooked with a nice crisp to them.. They offer you free fries sauce which i suspect is ketchup, mayo and hot sauce. It's pretty addicting if you ask me. You're gonna spend about 10-14 for a meal here, maybe a little more, but for Moloka'i what did you expect? The dollar menu? UHHHH, no. Come on their gas is 5.31/gal for regular. It's very reasonable and they take credit card! The ladies who serviced us were very local, very friendly, and very professional. The have a drive thru that they service so their attention is divided between the counter and there. But for us first timers, they were more than willing to answer any questions.. The only problem I had was with their menu, I wish they gave descriptions of what was in their more creatively named burgers.. I suspect if we ever have a flying session and do lunch on Moloka'i again we will be dining here again! Moloka'i Burger, She Go.
When coming back home to Molokai this is one of my spots for a great burger. My wife and I have no complaints when it comes to it's burgers.

Molokai Drive Inn

Not expecting much from this slightly dingy-looking roadside diner, I popped open my styrofoam plate lunch to find that fish plate on Molokai means...a whole fish, caught that day, gutted, fried or grilled to order, and put onto a plate, with rice and tossed salad. It was fantastic, and all for under 10$. Molokai Mo' Bettah. I can't stress enough the perfection of this fried akule: crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, without any greasiness or grossness. I devoured the fins, eyes, everything but the spine. It was that good. All over mo'bettah, Molokai (Drive Inn), I will return!
CLOSED. We searched for this place and finally asked locals where it was. It closed two weeks ago. Locals were sad about it.
Because this place is a drive in along the main street in Kaunakakai and you're on the tiny island with not many choices our expectations were pretty low. But, everything we ate here was great. Perfectly cooked, moist, tasty, well-seasoned and delicious. LOVED the honey dip chicken which was so crispy it crackled during every bite and the chicken meat was tender and moist, it was no doubt the best fried chicken we ever had! The ice cream sundae's are a staple and the other specials looks ono too!

Hotel Molokai Restaurant


Kaunakakai, 96748
Reviews:
Restaurant temporarily closed but the bar is open, stop by and make friendly conversation with the hotel manager, Michael, some of the locals that work on the property (ask David about the flora on the grounds), and relaxed hotel guests. Nice spot to catch a sunset. Come Friday night for the luau & live music. See clear across the channel to Lana'i.
Unhappy with the food poisoning I received here at the restaurant. I had three days of runs and no eating thanks to Hotel Molokai.
We ate here because it's about the only place to eat if you're staying in town! Needless to say, you pay for that monopoly! We went on a saturday night and had drinks at the bar first...our bartender was awesome! She made the best Mint Chocolate Love shots! Like drinking a Thin Mint! So ono! We had the opakapaka and the hawaiian plate for dinner. All was good, but you def pay for it (~$25 for a plate). The Mai Tais are REALLY GOOD too! Great entertainment/hula on Saturday night! :)

Mrs. K’s Concession

Reviews:
I lived in Molokai for a good couple of months and this is my least favorite restaurant on the island. It's just bland and tasteless for even Molokai standards. The last menu I had there was their roast pork. It didn't taste roasted but more in line with pork lau lau except no banana leaf and just a oily soggy mess. I had their chicken cutlet katsu which was soggy and dry. Even there rice is wrong: there rice is literally just mush (that's what happens when you put your rice in a ziplock bag in the oven. To be honest,I have never really seen locals eat at this restaurant. Nor do locals ever talk about it. It's just there, another place to eat.
Hubby has Loco Moco, hamburger didn't taste like meat! Uncertain as what it is, honestly....the only good thing on his plate was the rice, egg and salad. I had the breakfast special 2 egg, brown toast and luncheon meat that was ok. Should have read to reviews before coming here.
Nothin special. It is a small store in the heart of town, most people completely miss that it is there. They mostly sell burgers and fries. The food was edible, but I would probably never choose to go there again.
