Very good for the price.

Service was good and the young lady behind the bar who was the waitress was very helpful. My Husband had the fish and chips which is one of his favourite meals and they did meet his high standard, the chips which were large and cross cut were very nice. I had fish tacos which were good but I would... read more

My group had various meal selections. I am gluten reduced so I had the corn taco with chicken. The tacos were rock hard and the the dish was lukewarm. Others in the group seemed to enjoy their meals. The fish and chips seems to be a good choice. The apple dessert is excellent and worth going in just for that... More

Simply put: the food is mediocre, but the staff was great! 2 of us had fish tacos, but we were both wondering if there was any fish in them, and the fish we did find didnt seem fresh. 1 had fish and chips, which he enjoyed, and 1 had a burger, which she enjoyed. Bartender/waiter was a really nice guy,... More

Hole in the wall with unexpected delish pub fare style food. We decided to try this place based upon trip advisor reviews. I had a green salad with fresh ahi which had a great flavor. My husband had the famous fish and chips which were amazing. If your looking for a casual, tasty dinner I highly recommend.

Friendly staff and excellent food, everything was fresh - and we tried it all (sandwiches - fish, chicken, burgers and a garden burger). Each meal came with criss-cut fries, perfectly done (crispy). Great beer selection (local, mainland and European).

We tried the burger and the fish and chips (Ono that day). Burger was good but the fish and chips were excellent. The ac felt good but the restaurant atmosphere was kind of dingy. Our waitress was just doing her job and not much more. We'd probably go there again as the food was good. The menu says something like... More

The food here was tasty, priced well for what you got. The service was decent, which is more than I can say for most places we went to. The fish is really fresh, and the drink prices were good especially during happy hour. The decor is dated, but I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

The service and the food was great, however this place is in the Safeway Mall in Kapa'a so the ambiance is not the same as being near the ocean. Good gang working there!

Good food, feels "local" and bit of the "everybody knows your name" feel. Welcoming and not hurried.

Wonderful food, awesome atmosphere, and non touristy. Once you try it, you will go back!!! My husband had the fish and chips and I had the fish patty melt. I am just sorry that we found Pau Hana right before we came home. The employees are very nice and helpful.
