We stopped in for a cocktail and dessert. The Mai Tai has a house name and no grenadine but was very good if VERY strong. Apparently I'm a lightweight because it was more than enough for me. We also ordered the creme brulee because it was the only gluten free dessert choice. It came as three separate flavors of creme... More

Id like to say that the overall feel of this place was very nice and upper class. One thing to keep in mind is that kids are not allowed in this bar at certain times, I think that they are permitted in from 6pm till 9pm, which I was fine with. I have a child and it didnt bother me... More

This was a good place to hangout in the evening while sticking close to home so to speak. Also with the limited on site dinner spots this was a good choice for a couple drinks and some bar food... pizza, sliders, desserts as well. No it's not cheap, but you shouldn't expect that here. Jazz music, koa wood bar, $220... More

We ate here two nights when we stayed at the Grand Hyatt. We had the pizza which has fried prosciutto, guava jelly, caramelized onions, 4 cheeses, and arugula; and the wedge salad which were both very good. We did not have sushi as we were fished out by this point, but the sushi rolls looked tremendous and incredible. The bar... More

We went there to listen to music, but couldn't stay - our sons were under 21, and not allowed. Although I understand the age rules, it was unexpected in the family reasort. Especially that our sons are high school and college ages. I guess word 'library' didn't register correctly for us. Left boys outside and walked in with my husband... More

We loved this place! We were staying up in Kalaheo, but we would come down to the Stevenson's Library to have cocktails and read our books. The ambiance is great, as are the cocktails. Be wary of ordering wine, which can be $14/glass -- yikes. Ask for prices first, if you are concerned with that. Friday through Monday they serve... More

Great place from dinner or late nite snack..located inside the Hyatt in Kauai. The food choice are varied from burgers to sushi. The atmosphere is that of and old mansion library with table games like pool chess. And there is always live music!

Wonderful jazz in the evenings. Good drinks and some interesting food items. The Koa wood bar and trimmings are beautiful. There are 2 pool tables to offer a distraction from the "typical Hawaiian fare". All in all, a nice oasis in a busy hotel

Great atmosphere and fantastic bartenders. We spent a lot of time meeting friends here. Actually handed out wedding invites on coasters. Very comfortable, plush surroundings.
