Great burgers and beers!

Enjoyed dinning here in May 2015. Had a delicous burger and amazing local chocolate beer! Would return again and recommend if in the area!

We have come here for years every time we come to Kauai. The fresh catch fish tacos are always good, as wars this time. Service was disappointing yesterday though this time. It is a local, hole in the wall, place but have never felt like a haole until this trip. Fish tacos were great but my wife's Caesar salad was... More

Went here for an early dinner last week because after reading the reviews, we thought it would be a good place to check out. Upon entering, we noticed that there was only one other person who might have been a customer. The waitress looked up and told us to sit where ever we wanted...no greeting just "pick a seat." She...

This was our go to place for lunch. Just opposite Waipouli Beach Resort where we stayed. If you like seafood, you'll love their catch of the day. The sauteed Ono fish was absolutely mouth watering. We also had excellent cocktails here - they run a happy hour from 4-6 everyday. For dinner, the place tends to get somewhat crowded, so... More

This is a great little local bar and grill, tucked away in the Safeway shopping center. I had the Ono Fish n' Chips and my husband had the Ahi Patty Melt. Both were made fresh and were very good. The Patty Melt was FANTASTIC!, made with Ahi tuna, grilled onions, and swiss cheese on sourdough bread. The fries were OK,... More

We visited twice during our weeklong stay and ordered four different dinners--they were all great. Very fresh and hot and the service was extremely friendly and fast. Note: This is not a touristy tropical place-- its a neighborhood bar and grill just like you would find in your own hometown.

For the moderate price, the restaurant was quite acceptable. The service was friendly and attentive. I had sauted ono over sticky rice. If you are tired of paying top dollar for dinner, this is a good alternative.

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

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 have... More
