If you like burgers, you'll enjoy something different "Hawaiian Style" here

We like the convenient location of this place. Although basic burgers are their forte, the variety of choices in types of Hawaiian style burgers is vast. For an average meal, we enjoy this place.

It used to be that the burgers were good here, along with a few fish dishes. Now everything seems to be overlooked, even if you requested rare or medium rare. Prices are too high for what you get, and there's no atmosphere at all.

The Poipu Shopping Village seems to have some hard times. We stopped here not for a light lunch and several shops were closed and Tropical Burger had posted a notice that they were closing towards the end of August. We had a nice lunch and our server was fairly attentive. So not much to say as they will be gone... More

Been here a couple times, left disappointed both times. Burgers dry and overcooked, the French fries were pretty good though.

Nothing to write home about. The food was average and the service was meh. The main draw was it was open and not expensive. Probably wouldn't go back if I had a choice.

It's only going to be open a few more weeks but I would not rush here. We stopped for lunch about 1:00 on a Tuesday in August. Pretty empty (as was the whole Poipu shopping center). There was actually an employee laying facedown on a table sleeping in the middle of the restaurant. Weird. Milkshake was good. Fries were good.... More

We live southside and have tried eating here several times. We keep hoping it will be better but never is. Food is not great at all and service can be slow but thats part of island life. After our breakfast experience today we wont ever be back. If your looking for breakfast then its worth the drive to Kalaheo Cafe... More

Nice, friendly restaurant. The waffles with pineapple and coconut syrup were excellent. We made sure that we made a return visit before our holiday was over.

Plenty of seating for our large group. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. Food was ok, but not spectacular.

My husband and I ate breakfast here the first morning after our late arrival. It was good food. The service could have been better as there were few customers at the time. It took quite a bit longer than I expected to be seated, then given a menu, followed by taking our order. I really enjoyed the open-air dining. That... More
