Wailua Marina Restaurant

Updated 01/24/2014

Fodor's Review

Offering the island's only river view, this marina restaurant—an island fixture for almost 40 years—is a good spot to stop for a quiet, leisurely lunch after a boat ride up the Wailua River to the Fern Grotto, and worth a visit on its own merit. With more than 40 selections, the menu is a mix of comfort food and more sophisticated dishes; portions are gigantic. The chef is fond of stuffing: You'll find stuffed baked pork chops, stuffed chicken baked in plum sauce,

and ahi stuffed with crab. The steamed mullet is a classic island dish.

No frills, good home cooking

Right on the Marina. Don't let the funky warehouse looking building scare you off. Best bang for the buck on the island. Try the 2" thick stuffed pork chop, seafood combos. Small salad bar. Friendly staff in a no frills atmoshphere. A local favorite.
