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

We all had the fish and chips, great! Easy access from Waipouli to pop in for a quick bite. Hidden around the corner by Safeway.

We just stopped in because the restaurant was in the same shopping center as the Safeway grocery store. What a pleasant surprise! We had a really good lunch. The food was very good. The service was very friendly. If we're in the area again at mealtime, we are likely to stop again.

Just a little hole in the wall in an old strip mall... Great fish and chips!! A little dark and old looking but the prices are great, food is great, and the service is friendly.

Convenient place to grab a very good burger and fries ~ and a drink, as well. Excellent service. Just a hop across the road from Waipouli Beach Resort.
