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.

We went for the Fried Chicken Sunday dinner! We got to hear more than one local band, watch people celebrate a birthday and also an anniversary. People were singing and dancing and watching football! Great meal and fun people.

I keep hoping for a good-tasting meal...not to be. Why do I go back? Not many other restaurants on Molokai. We went for the Chinese dinner on Monday. None of the food was served warm... The appetizer egg drop soup was not very appetizing; none of us at the table ate more than a few spoonfuls. It had an overpowering... More

Four of us recently enjoyed an anniversary celebration dinner at the Paddlers Inn. The passionfruit margaritas were delicious, and the fresh mahimahi dinners were also very good. We enjoyed the live music, and the restaurant is large enough to sit far enough away to hear the music yet still enjoy visiting. The staff was especially friendly.

My husband, friends and I had drinks and appetizers on our first visit; we then had lunch on our second visit. This open-air restaurant had a very cool atmosphere. The food and drinks were good, but the service was very, very slow (even for Hawaii.) The restaurant was also very casual (as to be expected on Molokai.) The menu included... More

As you might guess with the old Hawaii nature of Molokai, finding a quality restaurant could be a challenge. Unfortunately, we arrived after 4PM on a Sunday and there were literally no open places to go for dinner. We called several places that we saw on Tripadvisor but all but the pizza place was open. We wanted to try Paddler's... More

We decided to have lunch here and are sorry we did. I had a hamburger. I realize the quality of beef here isn't like I'm used to in Montana, but this burger was horrid. I had the bacon avacado burger. when the burger arrived I couldn't find the avacado. Finally found something under the burger that resembled store bought, crappy... More

Oh, wait, I was! Resturant had good food, reasonably priced (for Hawaii) food and drinks and live music. You couldn't go wrong! 5 thumbs up! Service was very good and it seemed to be were locals hung out as well. Use a designated driver or a cab (ask for Harley) The police run DWI check points. GOOD JOB 5-0!

We had the beer battered mahi mahi and a mahi mahi sandwich for lunch. It was pretty good. And it's a relatively nice place to sit down. Probably the nicest place in Molokai, allthough that does not say much.
