Happy Hour

This was a go to happy hour place for our friends. We did not find the food or the drinks acceptable for happy hours. Doubtfully we would return.

Friends had a bad meal there. We tried it & had a waitress decked out in tattoos who just sat & talked to friends, completely ignoring us. I even went up to her & asked her to stop at our table & she ignored me. We walked out. Restaurant is down for renovations. It should stay down permanently imo.

We were a group of six and stopped here for happy hour and an early dinner. I had the fish and chips and they were delicious. Someone else had shrimp with a side salad and both were very good. This is a sports bar and the noise level is high so it is difficult to hear a conversation. The food... More

Typical sports bar food. One of my kids favorites. We often hit the one near the Airport (across from Anchor Cove) before our red eye flight home.

The fish & chips were greasy but the lobster tacos were delicious. Standard bar food & drinks, good service, leave your best artwork on the walls.

Have not eaten at any of their locations but the Poipu restaurant is closed for remodeling. There isn't any indication on their sign as to when it will reopen. Hopefully it won't be too long because it is right next to an active tennis center and would be a great location for a post match beer. Don't know what else... More

Searched the west shore for food and someone recommended this. TV's blaring different sports. The only place where we were allowed to sit had NO view, no ambiance and poor service. We left while we were ahead. Seems that all of Waimea had special functions which meant no one could get a decent meal. Ended up at a DIVE in... More

And people had a lot of drinks with breakfast. Loved the bloody Mary's. Cheap tables and chairs but the food is worth it

I have gone here several times more recently. First, I highly recommend the Cuban sandwich. You can choose a side salad or onion rings for a small fee in place of the fries. The atmosphere is laid back, the staff is attentive, and the service is outstanding. I've never had to wait more than a few minutes for our food.... More
