We enjoyed it AND ran into Mr. 007 himself!

We ate here on two occasions during our trip. Once for lunch, the other for dinner. Both dining experiences were casual and comfortable. Food was enjoyable--Fish and chips, fish tacos...they have a little of everything. Mango margaritas were fabulous! And it's apparently a popular stop for Mr. 007... read more

Best sports bar in town! Beer was cold and Mai Tai's were good. Nachos are a must. The bar seating is directly in front of HD tv's. Has an open atmosphere with nice breeze.

The service was horrible. Not sure the waiter could remember he was waiting on us. The muscles and clams were good. The Huli Huli chicken ordered by my husband and my mother was soooo dry, that you could not choke it down without washing it down with your meal. The tuna sashimi appetizer that I ordered with my meal was... More

Great Kalua pork nachos, excellent drinks and good vibe to the place. Family friendly and good food. Lively noise level appropriate for a casual dinner.

This is an old place. We visited 17 years ago & I have maintained that theirs were the best potato skins ever. So I had to try them again. Still the best. New favourite too...the coconut shrimp. Best Mai tai on the island as wel

Nice atmosphere in town. Small portions. Nice place to visit. Close to the beach and other shops in town. Nachos were good..... but sampler plate very small.

Following a day of sun and surfing, we were greeted with a smile. The menu has fresh offerings along with some typical bar food. Fish tacos were our favorite. Good drinks and a decent kids menu.

We came here for lunch to fend off cabin fever on a thoroughly rainy day in paradise. They had a high chair for our 18 month old, which always earns bonus points. The food was great. I had the chicken pesto sandwich which was so good I kept commenting on it to my family. They do a lovely home-made mac... More
