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

Love this place, a slice of Molokai, reduce your velocity, lighten your load and come for a sit at their bar for the afternoon. Buy some beers for the kind locals, and the stories and laughter begins.

The food was good but there were flies as soon as the food arrived to our table. We were there another day for the Hawaiian singalong and that was fun. We just had beer that day. There aren't that many restaurants to choose from on the island of Molakai.

It was okay for food, because choices in this town are very limited. We went there two times and tried different things. Prices were pretty average too.

We had dinner at the Paddlers Inn on a Sunday night. There was live music which was nice. Dinner was very average. It was just ok. I had a chicken teriyaki dinner and my husband had a burger. I thought the best part of my dinner was the piece of pineapple on the plate. I liked the atmosphere. I would... More

If you like flies and cold food and a two hour wait for your meal than this is the place to go. As you may know not much food establishments on Molokai. But Hotel Molokai will be opening soon.
