Food was Fabulous!

We discovered this gem in Kapaa on Memorial Day when everyone else was closed. Even without a reservation, the owner accommodated us, had a great sense of humor, and made our evening so enjoyable. There was not a bad order in our group of 7. Onion rings were to die for, burgers were amazing and... read more

While this place offers a limited menu, what they did offer was fantastic! The service was the best we have had on the island. They truly worked as a team to ensure their customers had everything we needed. While we had one main server, two others always checked in as well. The Huli-huli chicken was to die for!

The Eastside is so easy to walk past and you really should go in. Really good wine list, food is remarkable. Try it at happy hour for ridiculously good prices and equally good pours. Crisp cold white wines, robust reds and frosty beers; love it. The Happy hour pupu menu will have you sampling delicious calamari presented as a work... More

If you decide to patron The Eastside, just know that your server is getting paid 0$ an hour and doesn't even get to see the tips after a shift. This is tax evasion and I'm turning them in.

If I had not been told to come here I would have walked right by. Decor is less than exciting but the food is outstanding. We had the Poke appetizer which was truly delicious. For the main we had the fish and chips. The chips are purple yam chips, not fries, which were good but the fish was outstanding. The... More

I'm finally getting around to reviewing some of our favorite places from a July return to magical Kauai. The Eastside was a wonderful experience, not because of the food (which was o.k., but not great), but because of the ambience and the live music. We went quite late (after 9 PM, I recall), and the restaurant was almost empty. My... More

Stopped here after hiking for 3 days, so I'm sure anything would have tasted good. The portions were enormous, food was quite good, a little pricey (but that's Hawaii). The place is kind of like a fancy pub.
