Great Place for Happy Hour

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.

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

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 :)

Kukui Mall KJ: First time there the food was great but service slow & the place was half empty. Second time, waited 30 minutes never got my drink, pupu finally came but was cold from sitting on the counter too long, after 45 minutes, still no food. My son approached the waitress & told her our food had been sitting... More

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.

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.

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
