To be honest, I was going to rate it average until I had the teriyaki beef burger which was really good. Old, Hawaii style building with seating inside and out. Friendly people. Good iced tea. Pricing is a bit wonky with the various burgers well...More

Enjoyed our meal at the Kualapu'u Cookhouse. Found it quickly and believe it's probably one of the better places to eat on the island.

It is highly unlikely as they are very non-technical. If you want to try for a gift certificate I would try either Paddlers Inn or Molokai Pizza. they are both quite a bit larger and are more tech savvy. Just google them... More
