Hanalei Dolphin Restaurant, Fish Market & Sushi Lounge
Set on the bank of the Hanalei River, this celebrated seafood restaurant serves fresh local fish at riverside tables shaded by bright blue umbrellas. Seating is also available in the open-air dining room, which is furnished with exposed wood and fishing nets. Specializing in high-quality seafood since 1977, the Hanalei Dolphin offers signature dishes like the ahi steak marinated in homemade teriyaki, while the adjacent sushi lounge serves fresh, simple rolls such as the Flyin’ Hawaiian, made with soft shell crab, avocado, cucumber, and onion. Nearby, the Hanalei Fish Market sells fresh seafood, organic produce, and the Dolphin’s homemade dressings.
