“good food, slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I ate there three times and the service was best when we did take out. The food was good but expect at least a 20 minute wait after you order food.

“Slow and kinda lazy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Food was good (burgers + bacon - what can go wrong) but took them some time to deliver. They always seem short on servers so they assign you bad spots to sit.

“Not very good.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

We stopped in here for a quick dinner while on Kauai for our honeymoon. Service was slow and inefficient and the food quality was poor. I ordered a burger with grilled pineapple on it and when serverec it was a canned pineapple. My wife ordered a chicken dish that contained gristle, not very appetizing. It appears that this place does a good deal of prepared foods vs. fresh items.
There are several good reviews out there for this place so perhaps we went on an off night but, definately not worth the price we paid....

“Don't...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

If you have kids especially, don't order the chicken nuggets - hard as a rock, supermarket frozen bad. French fries tasted the same. Burgers were OK but if you're in Poipu shopping center area there are much better choices in the same price range...

Delicious burgers for a very good price!!! The staff was very friendly and the location is very close to the resort we stayed at.
