Gaylord’s Restaurant

“By far the best Sunday Brunch on the whole entire island of Kauai… It's worth the money, it’s worth the drive... It's really a must.” —Kelly W., Carmel, CA


Sesame Seared Ahi




An island tradition since 1986, the award-winning Gaylord’s offers one of Kauai’s most beautiful settings for lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch. Seated around the manor’s original courtyard with views of Mt. Waialeale in the distance, diners enjoy fresh, delicious flavors in island-influenced seafood dishes, traditional meat selections and unique interpretations of lighter fare. Chef Todd Barrett and his culinary team use only the freshest, seasonal ingredients, supporting Kauai’s local farmers and fishermen. Kilohana’s 67-acre sustainable farm provides much of the produce and herbs used in the dishes and cocktails.“We loved the delicious island-influenced dishes. Our relaxed, elegant dinner in the courtyard was accompanied by local musicians. And, the lounge & shops were open when we finished dinner! A perfect Kauai evening.”
—R. Jenning, San Diego, CA

Menu items include starters like fresh Ahi Poke, Seafood Spring Rolls and Organic Greens Salads. Lunch features Cobb Salad, Fresh Fish Tacos or our ranch-style Kilohana Burger. At dinner enjoy favorites like the Sesame Seared Ono, Hoisin Glazed Spare Ribs or our Grilled NY Strip. On Sundays Gaylord’s offers an extensive brunch buffet with specialty a la carte entrees. Don’t forget the Banana Cream Pie for dessert!“We fell in love with Gaylord’s! Outdoor dining, tropical breezes, live music…and did I mention the food? The fresh island cuisine was excellent. The experience was everything you could want, and a great mai tai too!””
