Bali Hai
Views of the bay are as memorable as the cuisine at this open-air, tropical restaurant that is richly appointed with natural wood. A specialty is Kauai onion soup topped with melted provolone cheese and croutons. For entrées, choose from fresh seafood dishes, lamb, filet mignon, and vegetarian offerings. For breakfast there are poi pancakes, fried taro, eggs, and griddle fare. The adjacent Happy Talk Lounge has nightly entertainment. AE, D, DC, MC, V.
