We saw previous reviews and took a chance anyway. The food and service were excellent. The catch of the day was cooked to perfection and the wait staff were all friendly and efficient.

This was one of the worst dining experiences of my life. The food was terrible. At one point we heard the cook say to the server "I don't know how to cook the special", which was a simple fish meal. Apparently, he didn't know how to cook any of the food as the bruschetta and shrimp were really bad. The... More

We got off the plane a bit peckish! Found easy parking and greeted by a super friendly server with the most amazing fake red colored head if hair I have ever seen! We ordered the catch if the day and it was good, we asked for rice, got french fries, but hey on vacation! They ran out of beer we... More

Waitress spent more time gripping at the waiter then taking care of her tables. The waiter then quit. The cook barely moves, very slow. We sat there watching all this drama, finally we got a drink and left. We will not be back!

This place is a dump! The only flavor was the old fryer oil! My wife's pasta was just that pasta no sauce at all and 4 over cooked shrimp. They forgot my sons food and wanted to charge us for it! Don't eat at the poopoo lounge! We left for Taco Bell! Yuck!

When we paid our bill I asked to speak to the owner,I explained how disappointed... More

The food at the Pupu Lounge was really quite good, we had the catch of the day. Unfortunately the portions were very small, the men in our group were still hungry following this meal.

Okay, we went for fish and chips, but "no fish today because they only got one today and sold out of it". So, had the "shrimp from Kauaii" (the special she said". ) Very bland. Also ordered "chicken sandwich" - it was awful. Didn't eat it. The place has dried bird poop on the chairs on the porch where we... More

We have stopped in to the PuPu Lounge occasionally over the years for an appetizer and drink. We thought we'd do the same this trip and were so disappointed. First of all, there were only 3 tables filled, which should have been the first hint. We were seated and given menus. Waitress came to take our drink order and when... More
