The Monkeypod was about a 15 minute walk from our hotel. We tried it for lunch and found the food and service to be excellent. As a result we came back several days later for dinner and had another enjoyable experience.

Great spot to eat. It has an upper and lower floor. We like the upper floor near the rail overlooking the live music. Nice varied menu.

The food and service were quite good but it’s really the drinks that stand out. The mai tai is the best we’ve ever had! They hand craft this beverage with the finest ingredients, you won’t be disappointed!

Great place to stop for a lunch on a Saturday. They had live music on the patio and it wasn’t too loud or anything. Would recommend the garlic fries, and the wild mushroom pizza. Awesome! Always go with Wailua Wheat too!

The food here was excellent and service was quick. We sat outside and there was live music on a weekday, that's a plus. The prices are high but you are eating an a resort area. And that's expected. I can recommend heading here for lunch

Perhaps one of the easiest ways to answer the food and beverage question is to visit the Monkeypod Kitchen website. (TripAdvisor doesn't allow me to post a link.) Other reviewers have answered the question about children. We... More
