Gaylords now rebranded as The Plantation House by Gaylords offers one of Kauai's most beautiful settings for lunch, dinner and happy hour. Located in the historic Kilohana Plantation home, diners are seated around an open-air courtyard with views of the plantation grounds and Mt. Waialeale in the distance. Our kitchen uses only the freshest, seasonal ingredients supporting our local farmers and fishermen. Our 67-acre sustainable farm provides much of the produce and herbs used in our dishes and cocktails. Menu items include starters like fresh Ahi poke, fried brie, fresh seafood, delicious steaks and vegan entrees too. Don't forget about our famous Banana Cream Pie for dessert! Take a walk around the Kilohana grounds, shop in our assorted boutiques, visit the Koloa Rum shop, go on a rum safari adventure or take a ride on the plantation train.

Discover Lihue

Lihue, the capital city of the Hawaiian Island of Kauai, is home to arguably the most diverse array of restaurants on the island. The restaurants in Lihue serve everything from authentic Italian cuisine to organic pescatarian food to "ono local grindz." However, all of the local eateries have something in common: the fresh seafood. The locally caught shrimp is especially popular with visitors. Known throughout the Hawaiian Islands as some of the tastiest shrimp around, the shrimp of Kauai is much sweeter and softer than the shrimp sold at mainstream grocery stores. As a special surprise, Kauai shrimp is usually served with the head on.
