We have eaten at Keoki's many times over the years. It is one of our favorite places on Poipu even though it often does have quite a wait. Eating in the dining room is a fun experience with all of the lush scenery and tiki torches and such. Definitely worth doing at least once. However, we now prefer to sit... More

I had Ono/Mongchong combo which was good but not exciting. Hula Pie great. Service very good. Bar? Never had a Mai tai made with grapefruit juice - not my choice. Made reservation with Open Table for first time - that worked out well.

We dined 3 times at Keoki Paradise during our stay in Poipu, Kauai. They have a dining room and bar seating. We chose the bar for quick seating, but you can order from either the bar or dining room menu. Tropical lagoon setting with live music. Food was very good with a good selection using the dining room menu.

We tried this place fairly early on in our trip and we actually plan on going back before we leave! I got the slider trio which had 1 pulled pork slider, 1 hepe fish slider and 1 grass fed beef slider and they were amazing! My husband got the hepe fish sandwish. The fish was the best fish we have... More

After a short wait, we were seated by the pond to enjoy the beautiful setting. It was happy hour and the place was crowded, but the service was good and we never felt rushed. We had kalua pork sliders, mahi mahi tacos, and some other island delights on the happy hour menu, and the prices for food and drinks were... More

Very nice staff. However the atmosphere, food and live music were pretty poor. Might be good if you have kids, reminded me a lot of Denny's...

If you are on vacation and have an image of going to a tiki bar then go here. Went with my family and the atmosphere was great. The food was good and the beer is kept at a chilling 29 degrees! You have to try the hula pie.

A south shore institution, Keoki's might have to pick up its game a bit with the new restaurants established at Kikuiula about a mile away. But for the walk-up visitors from all the condos on Poipu shores, it will always do well.

We have eaten at Keokis a few times and have never been disappointed. Excellent menu and excellent service. We love the atmosphere! You can't tell from the parking lot, but when you get inside it is like stepping into a tropical paradise! Beautiful, lush gardens in an indoor/outdoor setting. A little pricey but we have paid more at other restaurants... More
