I had been weary of trying ahi due to the deep red color and assumed it was a very strong flavor. Something about this place made me go for it and give it a try. I got the ahi n chips. WOW. I was so wrong about ahi and it was flaky and fresh. I believe I got ahi 3-4... More

No A/C here and the air was still but that did not detract from the good food and cold beer on tap. Two of us had salads that were crisp and refreshing. The special fresh fish with grilled veggies and rice were a balanced meal after a day of hiking and swimming. VT fans will find a warm welcome.

Located in an old school, it is the kind of place where you immediately feel comfortable. The food is fresh and good, what we consider typical of Kauai (this is a compliment). The service excellent. The value is OK. We have eaten there twice this trip and will go again.

On our tour of the North Shore my husband and I stopped here for lunch. First off, the lemonade was amazing! It was super tart, which is how I like my lemonade. The food was wonderful as well. I had the nachos, which were super tasty, and my husband had the fish sandwich which he also enjoyed.

The 5 of us returned (Sunday 6th) after having good memories of previous trip visits. They are very friendly and have wonderful local musicians. It was wonderful again! Sadly we retuned again 2 days later and had the opposite experience. A bit after we ordered we were told that they were completely out of fish! We had already waited for... More

Girl who works behind the counter for deli/to go food is high and rude. Forgot one of our sandwiches after taking 30 min to make them.

Great steak, great fish (their fried fish and chips were great as well as their grilled fish). Cole slaw was a bit on the "garlicky" side. Good service. Relaxed atmosphere. We came here a couple of times during our island visit. Would definitely eat here again!

Just are here. About an ounce of fish on my fish sandwich. My daughter had more fries with her kids burger order. Drinks never refilled. Have spent several weeks in Hanalei. There are much better options.
