Nice airy restaurant to get some good eats and have a drink

We came here on Sunday for dinner, and it is one of the few restaurants open for Sunday dinner AND they serve alcohol. 2 of us ordered a local favorite that was like a large bowl of noodle soup - Wo Gau Gee Mein if I remember correctly. It was very good. Had a couple of beers as we watched... read more

Recommended by a friend, this fun filled venue has a great vibe. First night I ordered the "honey-walnut shrimp special. Good call! Tasty succulent shrimp, rice pilaf, & a pretty dam good coleslaw. I noticed most locals hanging out in the bar for possibly happy hour. I looked at the Pu-pus menu and found out why. an extensive selection of... More

We dined at Paddler's Inn both nights we stayed on Moloka'i. Both evenings were very good, and I would definitely return if visiting the island again. The restaurant is a tropical-style. open-air building with plenty of seating. The public areas are clean and well maintained. The menu is certainly robust with a wide array of dishes, ranging from Hawaiian cuisine... More

Great food, fun place, decent prices, nice waitstaff. This was our first meal on Molokai and were all exhausted. It was nice to find a comfortable place with a menu that covers a lot of appetites.That the food was good was a terrific bonus. GO THERE!

First visit was not so good, slow service and not so friendly waitress. Wanted to try the fresh fish that we were told would be in tomorrow so we went back. Totally different experience, friendly staff to include the bartender and the fish was worth the trip back... Only thing negative they need more fans!

Just went for a late lunch one day. My mango daiquiri was to die for! The mahi fish sandwich & fries were pretty tasteless. It's a cute tropical-style restaurant/bar with a large menu for food and drinks. I made the mistake of eating outside, so flies were plentiful (I should have known better!). There's also an inside dining area and... More

The day we went the special was baby back ribs. Turned out the cooks forgot to put it in so the wait for ribs would've been another two hours! So we ordered some other unmemorable food... It was fine. The pool and darts were cool.

Only restaurant on Molokai that serves alcohol with their meals. We met a great bartender named Michael who gave us tons of great information and the best Mango Margarita I've ever had!. We went back a couple of times. I had the bacon burger and my husband had a burger as well. The food was good, prices not bad for... More

The food is simple, take a long time to delivery, but the taste is good, the owner is a good guy and makes you feel well.

Having just arrived on the island after a trip from the East Coast, were tired. Service was friendly and efficient. I had a local fish, sorry the Hawaiian name escapes me. Very sweet, salad from local produce. Older gentleman on the piano, young lady singer playing lite tunes. Very pleasant time!
