Gaylord's Restaurant

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.

“Memorable by day, unforgettable by night”

Chef Mark Sassone 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.

Menu items include starters like fresh ahi poke, seafood spring rolls, and organic green salads. Lunch features cobb salad, fresh fish tacos, or our ranch-style Kilohana Burger. At dinner enjoy favorites like our grilled fresh catch of the day, hoisin glazed spare ribs or our Filet Mignon. On Sundays, Gaylord’s offers an extensive brunch buffet with specialty à la carte entrées. Don’t forget the Banana Cream Pie for dessert!
