All the staff are very friendly in this restaurant. We were greeted even when we were just outside of the restaurant. When we went there on Saturday night, there was a live music, and creating a great atmosphere. My mahi was a little dry, but other food was ok.

We stopped by on Sunday evening because I'd read somewhere that Paddler's had live local music then, but were disappointed to see the musicians packing up their stuff as we arrived at about 5:30 p.m. However, our mood brightened when a couple of guys with guitars showed up shortly there- after, and we really enjoyed their music as we ate...

The Inn is comfortable and serves great food and serves up great "Aloha". No matter when I have been there I always meet friendly people...both employees and patrons.

We had dinner at the Paddler's Inn on the recommendation of a local we met at the Hotel Molokai. We'd driven by a couple times since it's on the main highway in downtown Kaunakakai. There is ample parking in both the front and back. Inside, it's a pretty big place with a long bar and ceiling fans. Once we were... More

Molokai is exceptional in many ways, but fine dining is NOT one of the reasons. After trying a couple of the drive-in/diners ( light lunch for 2 = $28) we were pleasantly surprised by the Paddler's Inn. Old Hawaiian style decor, decent food and EXCELLENT music make this the "happening" spot on Molokai. The Mahi salad is a great deal... More

This place is right in town and always seemed to have lots of cars in the lot each time we drove by so we thought we would check it out. Lots of flies since it is open to the elements s if that bothers you then think twice. It may not have that many flies at all times of the... More

We ordered 5 different meals here and only the pulled pork sandwich and burger tasted good. The Terriyaki pork, chicken and beef entrees were awful and seemed as if they had been heated and reheated many times. The meat was tough and tasteless. The manager did allow us to order something else and took one meal off the bill, but... More

The food was average-to good. I ordered the shrimp salad. Little disappointed in the amount of shrimp included on the salad. My husband ordered the chopped steak. It was tasty. The entertainment was excellent. Great traditional Hawaiian music.
