Recently the most improved food and menu on the island. The restaurant is both inside and outside, no views. Service seems a bit slow, especially for a working person's lunch. I love the Saturday Night Jazz.

This was recommended to me by some folks on my tour group. They were right--this place has everything you are looking for--good food, good drinks and music and dancing. Great small town, big party atmosphere. I got the Ahi poke which was excellent!

We did not eat here but the food looked very nice. Had a drink one evening and listened to a man singing with his wife playing the music, was very corny but good. Walked in off the street, no cover charge. I believe you can also stay here.

This is the place locals congregate to share Molokai ohana! Even when the Molokai power went out, Paddlers was there with fresh (not frozen) Mahi Mahi! And...it was screamin' ono!

Really loved the Sunday entertainment with a very talented local group that does the rounds of the island (Na Ohana Hoaloha). Menu was varied, service pleasant, and the open venue felt very tropical. Our friends enjoyed the mahi mah fish and chips while I savoured my aki tuna salad. Ate there several times and not disappointed.

This place has great atmosphere and nice specials. Very island themed, friendly wait staff, and pretty good food. We had lunch twice, and enjoyed the shrimp po boy on Fat Tuesday. The chicken teriyaki, not so good, a little dry. But the nature of the place is what makes it; outdoors, good bar, and reasonable prices.

My wife and I stopped at Paddler's om the last night we were on Molokai for dinner. We were greeted as we walked in and seated right away, two differant servers came to make sure our drink order was taken. A man (who later appeared to be the manager or owner) came by our table as we looked at the... More

The location is very convenient to the main part of Kaunakakai town and they often have live music. We arrived on a "seat yourself night" and proceeded to an open table. Be prepared to wait, a very long time for mediocre food. It took over 45 minutes to get a menu and our drinks ordered. Then it took over an... More
