I WOULD AVOID THIS PLACE IF AT ALL PSSIBLE. This place was very dirty in every way. We ordered hot tea and the cup they gave us was dirty with ketchup stains or something on the outside (didn't even want to find out what was on the inside) and in a water cup they gave us there was a clump... More

Very casual sports bar restaurant. I had a good salad there. Prices are good for Kauai. Garden tropical views.

great deals on all types of drinks from 3 - 6pm and deals on appetizers. The nachos were good. Located on the 2nd floor, open-air seating-nice breeze.

The patio doesn't have nice views but it has a charm atmosphere. If you like a mix of sports bar and a happy hour, this is your place; fortunately for me they shut off the TV sound after the happy hour ended, lucky of me so I didn't get mad of the very HIGH volume sound of the TV. They... More

Ate here for lunch, the nacho's while large were not very good, some cubes of chicken. The fish sandwich, mahi was a very small filet, 4 ounces or less, on a huge bun & onion twice as large as the fish. 6 small coconut shrimp & chicken strips were average. My wife couldn't eat the steak on her steak salad... More

The food was maybe average. The burgers were dry, the nachos marginal. The service was beyond terrible...and this is taking island time into account. I had to find someone so that I could pay the bill. I don't think we saw our server again once she took our order. Other people brought the food, and when we wanted another drink... More

We liked this place so much that we went twice! It's got a covered outdoor seating area with beach views, friendly staff, and delicious food. Sports are on the televisions all around you, and the happy hour can't be beat. I recommend trying the "Pizza Fries" appetizer if you love cheese, and their "(real)Lobster Tacos". Everything we tried, both times... More

Our burger and fries were pretty expensive and the service was lacking. We had to ask for a refill on our beverage. We did not want to visit the restaurant again.
