Good food

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.

I'm not sure that we have ever received such slow service at a restaurant. From the time we walked in till when we received our food it was 1 1/2 hours. It took forever to be seated, but other people were being seated. The staff was pleasant enough, just not very efficient. People around us that have come in at... More

Even before the Hotel Molokai Restaurant closed, Paddler's was our favorite restaurant on the island. Now it is the only full-service restaurant, but since we were here a year ago it has dropped in quality and in service. We went with another couple for a Valentine's Night prime rib and crab leg dinner. The only good thing about it was... More

Not a lot of choices for dining out on Molokai, but this turned out to be a find for us during our four-day stay. Wait staff was delightful, music was good and really fun, food was fine. Good Grief; it's a wonder they have anything to serve out here in the middle of nowhere. We had nice salads, mahi-mahi, steamed... More

Seemed to be the biggest attraction for food in this town. Service was slow but the waitress had very little help from the bartender. Portions were good sized but nothing to write home about. My calamari had breading like a mozzerella stick which took away the taste. My wie's pulled pork was extremely greasy.

We went here twice. The first time was on a Sunday, the day before the supply ship came in, so the restaurant was out of everything from Longboard Lager to hamburger buns. Fortunately, ground beef tastes OK on a sandwich roll, washed down with Rolling Rock. A manager apologized for the spotty menu and gave us a free dessert. On... More
