Came here for breakfast because we wanted fried rice with fried eggs and Portuguese sausage. They didn't fail us; it was delicious and the best we've found so far between Lihue, Poipu, and Kapa'a. It's a very old time Hawaiian restaurant that we loved when we lived on Oahu in the 70s and 80s. Lots of different breakfast entrées to... More

I was skeptical about having fried rice for breakfast but it was a side item...LOVED IT, my omelet, I believe it was the Boston or the Brooklyn was amazing. I was full in a hurry.

Service was a bit slow for the shave ice, but it was a hot busy day, and only one person working. Nobody was in a hurry so it really wasn't an issue. Huge shave ice at an really reasonable price, complete with ice cream. Flavoring was generous and very tasty. Can hardly wait to go back again!

We stopped in for breakfast and realized quickly that this is a place the locals go to eat. My wife and I both had the Ono breakfast burrito, I had hash browns o the side, my wife had fried rice. Plenty of seating and parking close. Great breakfast!

No idea why this woman was so nasty to us. Service was slow even though there seemed to be enough help. Pood substandard.

We've been coming to Ono Family Restaurant for years on our visits to Kauai. Very friendly atmosphere, excellent food and very responsibly priced for the islands. They have a huge selection of made to order breakfast items. Very casual family friendly atmosphere.

Enjoyed tropical pancakes for breakfast, and a shaved ice one afternoon. Open for breakfast and lunch -- not dinner.

We have been coming to Kauai for the past 6 years and have had the same excellent food,service and friendship every year. Their breakfast menu has something for everyone. The asparagus omelet and spinach, artichoke and cheese omelet are excellent. Kenny, the owner, will gladly sit and chat with you for a minute or two.

This place holds up to its reputation. There a little understaffed which is why I'm giving it a four but the food is way worth the wait.
