I was there on the oct 18th review below. It was an unintentional mistake. My husband was the "local" guy from the review, that went ahead of the gentleman. He is not a local even though he does look like one. I did ask her if she had seats available and she said no that we had to wait 10-15... More

I read a bumper sticker as we came out of the restaurant that said there are 2 speeds on Kauai (slow and slower). That definitely applies to this restaurant (along with my review of Kauai Pasta). They sat us right away but took 10 minutes to get back with us for our order. It is a nice restaurant/bar (akin to... More

Hostess did not want to seat us right away, even though there were open tables. We were seated, seemed like a local spot. Games going on with lots of cheering. Happy hour prices were great along with appetizer prices. The onion rings were great, and also got a pork with cabbage dish with tortillas that were very good. Not sure... More

Greeted by an indifferent hostess, but online menu for happy hour looked great so we waited...and waited, and waited in line for a table while unused tables sat open. When the family in front of us asked about the availability of an open table the hostess mumbled a response about a large group that had to be served first...poor service... More

We stopped here while going through Poipu. Nice little view of the ocean. The lunch prices were reasonable and the portions were good. Wife had the lobster tacos and I had the fish and chops. Both were great, nice and fresh. Service was good and they were'nt too busy. I'd go back!

Best happy hour prices for drinks and food. We had the best chicken wings (spicy & teriyaki). The spicy chickens were great tasting and not inferno or burn your lips wings. Happy hour prices for the chicken wings were $0.25 each. The chicken wings had a lot of meat on them and were cooked just right. $4.00 dollars (16 wings)... More

If you want a place to party, its OK and has good deals during Happy Hour. If you want to go some place for a decent dinner, go elsewhere. The Service was rediculously slow, the food was tasteless and generally the service was poor and no management to be found to discuss the problems with. I would only go back... More

My daughter and I just dropped in on this restaurant. No one was saying try-it but we decided to take a chance. Walked into an amazing sports bar. TVs all over the place all on different sports stations. Am not a sports nut, so was worried about the food. Now for the food. Had the best cheeseburger I have eaten.... More

Do not confuse this place with the similar named restaurant in Lihue. Ownership may be the same, but this is the far better Sibling... Daily Happy Hour extends from 3 PM to 6 PM and includes some awesome deals. $3 fish tacos and $1 Tempura Shrimp topped our selections. The tacos were a little wet, but had generous portions of...

Fun pub that was within walking distance of the house we rented. The happy our deals are great and the food is surprisingly good - especially the wings and the fish tacos. Really great servers and bartenders as well.
