Food was subpar, even for bar food. server was very disorganized - we didn't get to put in our dinner order until after our appetizer was finished, and she forgot our waters completely. Otherwise, the restaurant was ran well.

So we're here as I write this review & I am NOT happy. We've been sitting here for about 20 minutes & we haven't been served yet. While we sit here & wait, we see 3 waitresses go behind the bar and help themselves to a shot!! We had to stand up and ask the hostess which waitress was ours,... More

Loved it so much we went there four times during our week stay! I am a picky eater but found lots of great stuff on their menu. Great staff and fun atmosphere no matter what time of day you go.

Good thing to know is that the staff is attentive and friendly. Everyday between 3 and 6 they have discounted appetizers and specials on drinks. We had 2 appetizers and our drinks and didn't even eat everything for a meal the day we arrived. It is close to the Marriott in Lihue and very convenient. We were never disappointed with... More

Very friendly mix of locals and tourists. Biggest selection of beers on the Island. Very good food at reasonable prices. Shrimp tacos were righteous.. Took three generations of my family to dinner and we all enjoyed the place. Well done.

The burgers were average. The service was painfully slow. The fries were terrible, thick, greasy, tastless. Had a rum and pineapple juice that was very good and (you could taste the rum).

We stayed across the street at the Marriott for 10 nights and were at Kalapaki Joe's 5 times - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Great happy hour specials, Poke was very good, the ahi tacos were outstanding. Nachos could feed a family of four (beans are on the bottom under the chips so they don't get soggy -... More
