After reading great reviews we decided to try it. There were about 10 people there when we arrived at 6:45PM. One bartender/waitress, one cook and one other employee that I couldn't determine what her job was. There really should have been at least one other employee there. They certainly would have benefitted from a dedicated bartender. Since this is a... More

Stuck with the fish & chips, very fresh & delicious. The waffle fries were very good, & a nice change from regular fries. Wish they had a sauce to dunk em in, but ketchup worked at the moment. The fish sandwich & fish wrap all with fresh Ono were very good as well. My daughter said the Patty melt was... More

Location is a little difficult to find, especially with the construction in the shopping center. The good news is the new construction is more parking and will make it easier to get to this location. Limited seating in this establishment; seating includes stools at the bar and a few booths. Feels like a step back in time. Lighting is dark... More

This is a small local bar and grill tucked back in the Safeway shopping center. Don't miss it! Great Mai Tai's and the food is wonderful and definitely reasonably priced.

The food was good, we had lunch, one fish and chips, the other a burger. Washed down with a beer it was all we needed. The bar itself had a lot of character and the bar staff were attentive, to be fair there were only 4 or 5 tables used so it wasn't busy when we were there.

Pau Hana is a bar and grill hidden behind Longs Drug Store in the Kauai center...They offer a short fish menu, but are best known for their fish and chips...They were doing ono fish the night we were there...firm texture, thin, crispy batter...Very good! Informal, 5-6 booths,, worth a visit.

Checked for reviews, which were good, before going. This is a very small, local bar, which is understaffed. We waited for nearly an hour for our order, it took almost two hours to finish the meal. Regardless of the quality of the food, which was fine, the experience was spoiled by the lack of service from the very nice but... More

Ate here the first night because it was close to our hotel and we wanted to try someplace new. Enjoyed the food so much we ate here later in the week. Among our meals were a fish wrap, fish and chips, steak sandwich and ribs. Have to say each meal exceeded our expectation. Surprised that the ribs and steak were... More
