Staff Needs Skills

I am wondering if this restaurant group is getting too large too fast. The staff needs some training! Food was not good. This was definitely not up to any quality. Waiters confused orders.

The dragon salad is superb. Don't miss this item. We saw this salad on a table next to ours and immediately ordered it. Delicious......... That being said, the service is somewhat laid back and a tad slow. However, that being said it's a fun place that's a little too loud for our liking.

We stopped by here this evening to kill some time before our 10pm flight and watch the NCAA games. Our waiter, the bartender, was eager to tell us about happy hour but the look on his face when we ordered iced tea and diet coke told the story. We went to the bar twice for refills. I had the pizza... More

We have stopped by here 3 times now for a happy hour beer and snack. The chicken lettuce wraps are our favorites. You can watch the surfers and catch a game. Service was a little sketchy on the first visit because it was shift change, otherwise, we were very satisfied.

noise a little too loud during game time, but Kalapaki Burger came our perfect! No consistency between restaurant at Harbor Mall (preferred) to Kukui Grove location. I like the original spot much better. Cocktails on the strong side but a nice selection.

Breaded mozzarella sticks were OK, but the fish part of my fish and chips was awful. The fish was battered AND crumbed (as per menu description), but very greasy on the underside. Inside the crumbs on the underside was grey, and I couldn't tell if it was fish or batter. Needless to say, I removed the mystery part and just... More

This was our first meal in Kauai and it didn't disappoint. We sat outside in the evening and it was very pleasant. The food was good and the service was friendly.

We were in the area to kill some time before our flight and decided to grab a bite. We were going to eat across the street but they only had outside seating and it was raining. 1st mistake!!! This place has a great location and a good menu. But I have to agree with the other reviews and say they... More
