Friend's recommendation

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.

Try your hand @ Dollar Darts on the ceiling, then order the Fish n' Chips. Don't expect long, skinny fries – they're the best waffle fries ever.

We decided to try this place after a long day...we were the only ones in the bar except for a few people at the actual bar. The waiter was very friendly and told us his story. Very small bar but it's adequate. Several of us ordered the fish and chips, which was the best we've ever had! The other ordered... More

Gotta love it. Just right for a stop between the hard work of touristing. Nothing fancy. Little hard to find. Pull into the Kaua'i Shopping Center and look along the strip to the right.

While the one waitress/bartender was friendly and the cook seemed competent enough, this place really doesn't have a lot to recommend it. They were out of more than half of their beers. Service was incredibly slow, because they only had two people working the entire place. The Fish and Chips was good but not great. My $20 grilled fish platter... More

My wife and I went to Pau Hana by accident. It is right next to the Safeway in Kapa'a, where we had stopped to pick up a few things, and we needed to get a quick meal before a dash to the airport, so we stopped in. What a pleasant surprise. It is a homey, authentic place, clearly family-run. There... More

We have an opportunity to visit Kauai every year and we always make a special pilgrimage to Pau Hana Bar and Grill for the fish and chips. We have NEVER been disappointed and have recommended this unassuming looking place to everyone we know who is going to be near Kapaa. It is located right across from the Safeway store in... More
