“Great creative fish entrees”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We just had dinner at the Wahooo grill and it was very, very good. We had the Lillian B appetizer which was very different and really good. Two of us had the sea bass, one tried the opakapaka, and one had the BBQ ribs. Every entree was delicious and very creative with flavour and presentation. The service was very good as well. We were very happy with our meal at the Wahooo and would love to go again.

“Good fresh seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The restaurant is located on the main highway in Kaapa and being open air with patio seating can be noisy at times due to traffic sounds. However, that being said, the quality and presentation of the entrees is very good for Kauai. Prices are high-medium, but the selections are fresh and varied. Waitstaff are helpful and knowledgable.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in for an early dinner on a Saturday night and was pleasantly surprised. I ordered the rib-eye and It was good. My wife had a cheeseburger and overall the meal was good. Prices were a little high but food had good taste.

“Inedible Seafood and Kalua Pork”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Four of us had dinner here, and two out of the four dinners were inedible. The bouillabaise was vile, the steamed clams were severely overcooked, the kalua pork was dry, cold, and tasteless. On the other hand, the osso buco was wonderful. The staff here is lovely and considerate, and the atmosphere is very nice, but the food was so inconsistent that I would never return. It is very disappointing to find a kitchen so incapable of serving a quality product to all diners.

“Best Meal on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Best meal we have had on the Island all Week! If we could ever make a recommendation for a delightful evening this would be the place, with a Magnificent Dinner, WAHOO'S WOULD BE THE FIRST OUR FIRST CHOICE, The only downside would be visiting Wahoo's first, and setting the bar so high, All other restaurant would fall far Short. WE HIGHLY SUGGEST TRYING THE STUFFED SHRIMP! Waitstaff was by far the most attentive we have experienced during our visit. We will be back on every visit to the island.
