Not a gourmet find but does a good job. The shrimp was very good. Had a mediocre prime rib but the twice baked potatoes were excellent. Salad was also good. There is live music every evening, nice to just sit and enjoy. Pool tables too, good for families.

The restaurant is under new management, it shows and there are pleasant improvements. Service was much better, the pork pulled sandwich was very very good. The best tasting food I've had there, ever. I ranked Paddlers average due to the following: The excessive noise detracted from our dinner experience...there was a rowdy, noisy bunch having a grand, noisy time. We... More

The only restaurant at present on Molokai for business lunches. With the hotel restaurant reopening, that too will be an option.

It is a fun place for a casual supper. The night we ate there there was a live band. The food was fine and the setting, typical Hawaiian, a roof and fencing was relaxing.

We heard Paddlers Inn served up decent food in a fun atmosphere. The restaurant is a large building looking very island style with high ceiling, palm fronds and large timbers support the ceiling. The night we went there was live music- good jazz and covers. The service was friendly and the place obviously gets support from locals. It's apparent early... More

We were on a one-day guided tour of the Island, and lunch at Paddler's was included. We could only choose from three sandwich options, so we couldn't experience the full menu (which looked appetizing). We had the burgers and didn't expect much (as this was part of the tour), but they were really very good. Fries were good too. Got... More

We were only on the island for 3 days and we ate at paddlers 2 of the nights . My wife loved the half rotisserie chicken. I enjoyed both meals I had. The staff was friendly. Seating is on a covered patio. No views from the restaurant and prices were a little steep though we expected it on Moloka'i
