After a day of snorkeling on the north shore of Kauai we were quite hungry. We found this small hole in the wall restaurant . The food was absolutely great! I had the coconut shrimp and my daughters had Marlin fish and chips and the crab cakes. Freshness, tasty sauces and very affordable prices. The bartender made us great Blue... More

The wait staff is excellent, the food is fresh and nicely prepared, and they can accommodate all food allergies. Watch surf competition or sports on TV ad you enjoy drinks at the bar.

Stopped in here for dinner one day, and it was pretty bust. We were seated inside quickly and facing the bar. There are huge windows which provide a beautiful view of the mountains! I ordered a Mai Tai which came in a small tumbler glass as they should, not an insane tourist size monstrosity drink, so that was a definite... More

They were really busy and the wait was reasonable and the service outstanding. We enjoyed the food and local music. The service probably stands out the most! Fun and very reasonable

Had an excellent fish sandwich here. Nice, casual spot for a quick lunch. Menu had a lot to choose from and there was a parking lot next door, which can be very handy during busy times in Hanalei.

For a hearty quality meal without fluff or a premium price for the presentation, this is a good place to try. We had the fresh Marlin fish and chips, and it was excellent. The batter was light and crispy and the fish was not overdone. It was served with a slightly spivey wasabi tartar sauce which I found delicious. Portions... More

The fish and chips at this restaurant are delicious. There is a sauce that they serve with their fish that is to die for.....wish I had the recipe! This is a friendly, easy place to go and relax. It seemed to be one of the few places open at night in Hanalei to get something to eat.

Ate here twice. Very fresh ingredients. Great service. The Moa (chicken) ginger sandwich was very tasty. The chicken salad boat was substantial but could have used some onion-a little bland. Very welcoming place-try it!
