We knew this restaurant catered to a young crowd so we avoided the nightlife and ate there when it first opened at 5:00 PM. Server was cheerful, efficient and friendly. Food arrived in a timely fashion and was hot and very good. I had the gumbo which had kits of flavor without being too spicy. My husband had the ribs... More

It may cater to a younger crowd but the food was good, the live music an added bonus and it was walking distance from our Kauai coast resort.

Live music was great on other nights(particularly a young woman-sadly i did not catch her name) but on New Years Eve they had a D.J. He was very entertaining so we stayed ...Later we were at our hotel-Kauai Shores... on the beach and the power went off on the whole east side of the island...Lovely moonlight and we heard that...

This place was fun, hip and very busy, Service was ok for such a busy place. They do need to treat the moldy ceiling sheets. The music was trendy and fun but the airflow could be better. We had the New Orleans staple beingets and loved them.

I couldn't believe what a great meal we had at Trees. Outside is alittle tired, inside alittle tired...but the ribs and shrimp can't be beat!

We came to Trees without any expectations but intrigued by the Caribbean-inspired menu. My partner had the jerk chicken (no bones in answer to another review's complaint) and I had the ribs. Both were nicely spiced and generous portions. My partner had the key lime creme brûlée and I had the beignets... Again both excellent. With live music (no cover)... More

Good place to hang out. We came on a Wednesday so it wasn't too crowded. We learned that Monday nights are the busiest.

The food is excellent and well varied. We ate there most every night except the Hukilau next door - ate there one night each time there - every year in late Jan-Feb, but Trees is fantastic. Ate all over Kapaa and up toward the north and south, but always go back to Trees. Good food, reasonable drinks and food, good... More

You walk in and it seems like its a "dive" bar. But don't walk out! There was always a live band playing (not too loud). Drink specials from 5 to 7.. And the food is terrific. Especially the sliders, the monapouia, the nachos, the Cajun fries, and the house salad with lillicoi vinegrette. Not expensive . comfortable seats. Service was... More
