We stopped by at 3 pm to watch the USC/UCLA game. They had it on, but as we prepared to sit down, the hostess was running around the place telling customers that all the TV's would be changed to boxing in an hour. What? Every TV...all, maybe 25 of them? Weird. We went downstairs to the Feral Pig...a dive with... 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

The three course Sunset Menu is the best value meal in Poipu. Quality food at a great price. The wines by the glass are decent and fairly priced.

We were there to watch a football game and take advantage of the happy hour. The service was somewhat slow, the first round of drinks was somewhat weak, the second round was a lot better. Food was good, although nothing really exciting. It is a sports bar.

This is a sports bar and rather noisy. It's not a great place for little kids. We had MMA fighting going on over our hears and somewhat drunk and noisy girls at the table next to us. It deserves a pass.
