We had several meals there over the holidays-very nice staff-good value. People were so cordial; and welcoming to all who came to eat. They offer lots of activities including Kareoke/live music etc Food is typical "bar" food -good quality and prices-but they offer daily specials as well. Worth a visit when on the island.

This was a great place to stop for a cold beer, appetizers, or a meal. We stopped by a number of times while doing our shopping in Kuanakakai. All of the food we tried was great and fairly priced. The mahi-mahi and the ono was especially good! It's a lively place with music playing. Super friendly service made it easy... More

I would not say food was great, but by far it was the best we had in three days on Molokai, service was good and no complaints with either of our meal and would say go to Molokai for the activity but not the food. If you go this is the place for dinner.

We stopped in here for a few beers and fries. There was a football game going on so was pretty busy with enthusiastic locals- which was sweet! The service was very fast even though it was busy. The waitress was friendly enough. Would head back for sure to try some food and hang out. There were pool tables in the... More

This certainly isn't a gourmet restaurant, but we had a good lunch. We were looking forward to having some fresh fish, but the waitress said that previous night (Friday) they were completely packed and the fish was all gone. The barge with the fish that was supposed to come that day had not come. So, we got no fish. We... More

It's a Sunday night. Moderately busy. Food backed up 1 hour+ for no reason. Waitresses out of breathe. Chicken dinner special and it's ready and they can't serve. This is bad management. No excuses. Just ordered a pizza down the road. Molokai no bettah.

We drove into town for dinner at Paddler's Inn and were delighted that there were local musicians playing on a Saturday night. At least two we recognized from Aloha Friday at the Hotel Molokai. We ordered the prime rib and the kalbi ribs. The food came out quickly, but they were out of kalbi and had substituted teri-pork. I guess... More

We stopped here for lunch. It was pleasant and the wait staff were very efficient, but the food was average bar food. People on another table had a salad which looked good.

This restaurant, like the whole island, is in a time warp. Here it was as if we were waiting for the Pearl Harbour air raid to be announced on the tannoy. There was old music and ballroom dancing. The food was great, but what was really great was how friendly and helpful were the staff. We had read about purple... More

We ate there twice and enjoyed it both times. There aren't a lot of choices but this one suited us just fine. It is where the locals hand out for good food, music and sports TVs. It definitely isn't fancy, but it has good food and friendly servers. We enjoyed the funky atmosphere.
