One server for the whole place. Not a big place but definitely too big for one person. Food was average...nothing special. We had just arrived and needed to eat before we got groceries. Got fish tacos for husband and fish and chips for myself. Average size portions. Good but nothing to rave about. Probably wouldn't go back for mediocre food... More

The service was slow. Had we seen the bathroom before we ordered we would not have had dinner there. Took 15 minutes for anyone to get us a drink and service slow. The food was below average and nothing worth noting.

We went to this establishment after reading the numerous positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Visiting from the Seattle area we wanted to try out place that wasn't so touristy. Upon entering the bar, it took a couple of minutes to get the attention of the host/waiter (Shannon) to be seated. He told us to sit anywhere we wanted. After finding... More

We arrived at 11:20am to find door locked but "Open" sign on. Door opened by highly agitated individual who said "Sit anywhere" not Hi, Good Morning or Have an apple. Although we do in fact drink alcohol, we were not there to drink but to eat, so we requested water. The man says..."you know this IS a BAR right" and... More

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...
