Great family restaurant in a mall setting

We were on vacation in Kauai and it's hard to eat out with kids and find reasonable fare for a reasonable price.

This place was in the Kukui Grove shopping center and had a pretty good vibe for a sports bar. We ate outside and enjoyed the trade winds while having good conversation. There were lots of good items to choose from and wouldn't mind going back to try more. Service was quick and friendly.

Kalapaki Joe's offers both great inside and outside dining. The atmosphere is great for enjoying a late breakfast, as we did, or lunch and hanging out with family/friends. The proximity to great bargain shopping is quite a bonus as well. I fully recommend Kalapaki's Joe's.

Kalapaki Joe's boast that they are the "Western Most" sports bar in the US...they are! They have an awesome happy hour with the best bear selection on Kauai, and inexpensive appetizers. My wife had the fish and chips, and much to our surprise they use the "fish of the day"! It came with a ton of fries and a large... More

My husband enjoyed this place more than I. It is pretty local. Only a couple of tables upstairs, an outside counter and stools downstairs. I had fried rice and eggs over easy. Now, call me crazy but I need toast with my over easy eggs. THEY DON'T SERVE TOAST!!! What?!!! My husband wanted to go again, I didn't. Only tried... More

This location appeared to be closed when we visited in June. There were no chairs or tables inside, so perhaps they moved to a new location? The Poipu location was closed for remodeling, as well, but the Waimea store was open. I only gave it a rating because the field was required, but it does not reflect the quality of... More

My comment to the server was "This is not ordinary bar food" and that's all you really need to know. We went for the tv's and the NBA playoffs and it happened to be happy hour. Apps and beers are $2 off, which made it quite reasonable. My wife had the best swordfish tacos and I had a very generous... More

Love this place for Happy Hour. Best deal in town. Nice open atmosphere with lots of TVs to watch the games. Mixture of people...some locals and some tourists, all having a good time.

Before our late flight home, we did a pupu tour of Kauai. We ordered the Tostada Seared Ahi Pizza. Unbelievably wonderful. Pieces of grilled ahi with goat cheese and veggies on a crispy tostada. They class it as an appetizer so the price is also very good :)
