Great atmosphere & friendly.

They have music on Fri, Sat & Sun. Sunday we stopped in to check the menu for the next night & listened to the music. Next night we had dinner & enjoyed it very much. Staff was very friendly & accommodating. Food was good.

We had a late lunch on Sunday. Mahi mahi sandwich and fries, average. Ahi poke, good. Service was pleasant but not overly inviting. Nor was it overly attentive. We would go back again, and probably will. Having said this, Molokai is not a place you go for the food. You might think that being on an island you would have... More

Food is very good. They have a nice bar area. Live Music at certain times. Casual and Friendly. Try their Salads and any Plated Dinner; and enjoy a MaiTai.

It's okay if you've already eaten at the other five restaurants on island. Service was good food left a little to be desired. But hey at least your eating on Molokai.

I had fresh catch Mahi, it was wonderful. Get there early, the fish caught that day goes fast. We had fast and very pleasant service as well as wonderful hawaiian entertainment. Fun, open air atmosphere.

We went here for an early dinner on Sunday. The music from the locals was nice to greet us as we came in. The food though was not good and our waitress was not on her game. We had the fish and chips which were taste less and the shrimp salad. The shrimp they claimed were from a local pond... More

Dinner with the family when traveling means trying to satisfy a variety of desires. Paddler's does a good job with options for every taste. Salads, burgers, grilled fish, we all found something to satisfy our cravings. Even the little guys were happy - why not when you can get mashed potatoes and gravy as the side for your burger. The...

This is one of the more higher priced places to eat on Molokai. We were not too impressed. I prefer the cheaper plate lunch Hawaiian style meals sold elsewhere, but I would try this again as Molokai has so few dining options. Visited Sept 2012

I have a friend who did an internship at the ranch, and she said that this restaurant served the Molokai beef. She informed me that I should go before any major holiday (Valentines Day was that weekend), as they run out of certain dishes. I got the rib eye, which wasn't terribly appealing to the eyes, but it was pretty... More

I last reported on a very disappointing dinner a number of us had on Valentine's Day at the Paddler's Inn. Fortunately one of my favorite places has returned to normal. I have eaten there over a dozen times since then and everything worked out fine. The food was good to very good, as was the service was great as well... More
