Had Ahi tuna wrap with wasabi which is amazing. The winner is black n blue flatbread. It goes to my home receipie book for sure. Very busy place but the service is fast and friendly.

The bathroom is a far walk which I thought was funny. You have to walk a block to use the restroom. Their pulled pork sliders were spectacular

An awesome location with THE best servers and service around anywhere. It was a tropically hot 90 degrees and we needed some libations! Even the names of the drinks were fun, and our server, Melissa, made it memorable. Would definitely recommend this as a stop! It had been recommended to us, and now passing along that valuable tip! ENJOY!

Spent some time here while on vacation in St. Thomas. We were a group of three couples. Our wives went shopping so the boys went to the Big Kahuna. We had a great time. Great rum drinks. Cold beer. Good food. The service was great! Our bartender, Tanji, was terrific. Very attentive, without being overbearing. She was a lot of... More
