Tasty food and good value

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... read 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.

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
