We were looking for a place to eat breakfast and saw this place while driving. It's a typical sports bar, but has some nice views of beautiful trees. We happened to show up while a game was playing, so it was pretty busy. We were seated by the hostess and after 15 minutes of waiting, she dropped a bill off... More

Thought maybe I was just being over sensitive because the Seahawks were playing Iike crap. However, three other tables walked out on her while I... More

Had dinner here recently and it's one of those places that you here someone say, "I'd go there for drinks but not the food". The food was nothing to rave about just "ok" for the prices they charge. Great environment for football, tv's everywhere and the staff was really nice. I heard they have a great breakfast so I will... More

We were able to watch the first Seahawks game here and enjoyed our table with fellow Seahawk fans. They were having issues with their TVs so only two TVs were available for the game. The staff was friendly and the food was perfect football food. All prices were reasonable for the island.

I couldn't tell you how many times we visited Kalapaki Joe's while in Kauai! It was our favorite place to go for a very affordable and good happy hour. Staff are super friendly. Good food and drink for a great price on the island.

We came here after a day of zip lining for some apps and good beer as the zip lining guides told us about it. They were on par with that, the beers were good and moderately priced and they had great fish tacos. There are happy hour specials which is a good thing and we enjoyed them.

called ahead specifically for the game we wanted-was reassured it would be available--and it wasn't. The food was bad, bad, bad. Place was dirty. The service careless

We've been to Kalapaki Joes happy hour (3-6), three times. It's a fun setting, good service, and well priced bevs and food. The 25 cent wings are outstanding. The $3 fish tacos and pork nachos (and homemade guacamole) are also very good. The burger and tempura shrimp, not so good. Kalapaki Joes has become a family tradition for us.

We watched a US Soccer game here during the World Cup and there was a great crowd there to watch at 10am Hawaiian time. The breakfast was delicious, the servers were attentive and the crowd was friendly and boisterous. It was a great time - would definitely go back when visiting the South Shore of Kauai.
