Wonderful Dinner in Kapaa

We had dinner with our family of four at The Eastside. Dinner (grilled ono) was indeed ono. They had a kids menu which my children enjoyed (chicken tenders). Live music was playing but we were in a back room so did not get to hear very well. Waitstaff was a bit aloof, but because the food was... read more

Food and drink was fantastic. Place was nothing fancy but that was what we were looking for. My issue was the man who was there (assuming owner) was visiting with us, we had nice conversation. He told us the specials and pointed out one on the menu that was $25 and said the special was just like that only a... More

We visited the Eastside simply because it was near the resort we were staying and we are certainly glad we did. This little bar & grill sits on the corner of the main road and doesn't really look all that impressive as you walk or drive by, but the food is outstanding! We had the Eastside burger and the fish... More

Atmosphere was casual, dinner was excellent. The happy crowd at the bar made for a good balance, because the sound of 'good times' overrode the traffic noise from the main street. I do recommend The Eastside to friends and visitors, because I've always been pleased with my visits here. Service has always been good, as well.

For the price I guess we just expected more. The caprese salad was $14 and definitely nothing different than any other caprese salad we've had before. The ahi poke appetizer was forgettable as well. The best part of dinner was the Hawaiian fillo dough log. It was filled with spinach, garlic, cheese, and came with a yummy beet sauce. I'm... More

The Eastside was recommended by a group of young people. They said the food was good, and it was, but they peaked our interest when they told us the owner was also the entertainment. The owner played guitar, sang and even entertained us by playing the "spoons". It was an very interesting evening and dining experience on Kauai. The young... More

We have been several times all as good as it gets. The seared ahi is to die for and the ono almost as amazing. We had great service and nice cold beverages. Owner is uber nice making it our best dining experience on this Island. Don't miss this one if you are around Kapa'a.
