The Tavern by Roy Yamaguchi is based on the childhood memories of his Grandfather, who owned a tavern in Wailuku, Maui. Grandpa Henry’s tavern was a gathering place for the community. He served great food, prepared simply but with love. When he opened his tavern in the 40’s, he relied heavily on local farmers and fisherman for much of what he needed. Roy’s Grandpa used to cook for the family when they visited him on Maui. Many of the dishes that Roy ate growing up were dishes that his father would prepare based on his experiences working in Grandpa’s tavern.“Obviously, times have changed but the spirit of Grandpa’s tavern is what inspires me. My goal is to provide the community with a comfortable, humble establishment where families and friends can get together for good food, good drinks, and good times. I developed a menu that celebrates not only the local bounty (some from our very own “Garden Farm”), but also some local style favorites that are to me, feel good dishes. I also wanted to create some diversity in the menu that shows off and incorporates our local products on more of a global palette. I hope you enjoy what the Tavern at Princeville has to offer.” Located in The Prince Clubhouse at Princeville Resort
