A large group of vacationers went here to celebrate a birthday. We were told that the restaurant was unable to give us separate bills. That should have been our first clue... After our bill came, we were told that we had to figure out our individual bills and that the payments had to work out exactly. Our server said that... More

Stopped as part of a tour group. The fish sandwiches are huge with perfectly cooked mahi mahi. The waffle fries were crispy. The dip went with everything. Service was fast and friendly.

I ordered the fish tacos and they were best I've had in a very long time. The waitress was great too and a fun place to stop and grab a bite. Would definitely go back again when I'm in Kauai.

Right in the middle of Hanalei with veranda seating and a very extensive menus. The fish tacos and fish and chips were very good. As was the Taro Tower.

this North Shore eatery offers a fun menu . We started with cold wines , both chilled red and white. There were lots of deep fried appetizers but we started with the Caesar salads .

We ordered fish tacos and the fish was like powder and clearly over cooked. My friend and I had not had dinner the night before as we had flown in and we were starving. We could not get our waitstaffs attention, so ended up eating our first taco. The amount of fish was miniscule as well. When we did get... More

Great spot for a quick and relatively inexpensive dinner. The service was quick, the food (Baja tacos, salad, and pasta) & drinks (Mai Tai and lava flow) were very good, and the staff was extremely friendly. Recommend for a casual and/or quick night out.

This is another place people should check out. A lively restaurant and bar. All the fish used was fresh caught and local. the fish and chips were spot on with just a light coating of batter on the fish. Also the fish tacos were the best i have had in a very long time. I reccomend this place.

It was one of those rainy days in Kauai. The place was jumping. The drinks were pumping. And the food was plentiful. Great nachos!
