While not on the beach this restaurant met our expectations for a couple of beers and burgers. Lots of beers on tap, TVs all around, deck-like open air atmosphere and a good location in Poipu. Only one word of caution - don't go on a night with no breeze, it was a little warm in there for our taste.

Ono 25cent wings! Ordered dry-sauce on the side. Met up with local friends that meet there every Friday. Great food and drinks!

Our group of 11 people ate here and we wouldn't go back. It's a great location but the food was average at best.

This is one of the best values in Poipu. It's not on the water, but close enough. Fun younger crowd atmosphere with bar type food. This is a 'go to' place to stop when in Poipu.

Great food, great staff at the one in Lihue did not go to the other one but I heard it was good too. Happy Hour is the best fun. It is a sports bar but not many were watching TV, just drinking MaiTais!!!

It was great. Had some sort of Kaulu pork scramble. Yummy. Kids had longboard breakfast. Also very good. Decent service. Good food. Would go again.

Looked like a Hawaiian TGIF or Applebees when we walked in, but food selection is very broad and we were pleasantly pleased with how well prepared the dishes were. waitresses were very attentive. Drinks were well made.

The very good review is for breakfast. We had dinner one night and everyone's fish was way overcooked. Huge portions, friendly service.

There are now 3 Kalapaki Joes on Kauai. All are just plain lousy! I don't like to write things like this, but seriously the food and service are poor. Cheap drinks and beer for happy hour. That's nice. Food is all Costco bought and prepared. We have not been to the new location one can only think that it is... More

We stopped in to try it out and the food was really mediocre. I ordered the pork sandwich thinking it would be Hawaiian pork but in reality, it tasted like one of those supermarket BBQ bowls you heat up in the microwave. I couldn't eat it all. Save your time and avoid frustration, stay away.
