Decided to stop here for lunch.. total of 8 people. Hostess was nice seated us almost right away. The server on the other hand, was barley seen. She stopped by our table once...only to take our food order. Hostess brought our drinks (which the server was making because there was no bartender) and our food. The food was horrible. Anything...

We had eaten at Brennecke's beach broiler already and were looking for something different. We found this one on Poipu Rd and decided to give it a try. We were starving. We had a large group of 9 and they accommodated us no problem. The atmosphere was fun and just what we were looking for. The children's menu was great... More

I get the impression that if you're not a local then they would rather you not bother stopping by. We had a reservation for a large party of 10 or so. At the appointed time the tables weren't ready and they made us wait, put us in the very back and then didn't bother to come by and service us... More

We were seated at a tall table and my husbands back was bothering him so we asked to move to a lower table and they made us feel very uncomfortable for asking. Then when we were moved, it took the server over 15 minutes to come and bring us water. We ordered 1 beer and 1 appetizer and decided to... More

Stopped in here the night we landed. Had some great fish and chips. Love the bar's atmosphere. Open air and lots of tropical type landscaping and lighting. My husband loved his meal as well. Would go again.

We came here several times while on vacation and loved the food and atmosphere! Great way to watch a football game with the beach in the background.

Ok, I have spent 10 years coming to Kauai and this last trip was all about Happy Hour. I was joined by a cousin who isn't a big drinker so if we were going to hang out and watch a game, it needed to be a fun place, great view, good drinks and great price. We tried 6 different restaurants... More
