“Unimpressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

This place was overpriced for their food; basically, fish burgers and fries. Nothing unusual and we went there only once and would not return.

“Family Dining”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We had a dinner here. The food was average and kind of pricy for what it is. I got the New York steak and the mashed potatoes were instant. Not expected when you pay over $20 bucks for the dinner. Service was slow and inconsistent. We kept being ignored for things like getting menus, water, silver ware etc. I thought it was going to be a burger joint but the menu had lots of things on it which seemed sort of a mish mash. Go next door and get a Puka Dog instead it is cheaper and fresher and faster!

“Walk away”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

I should have known by the old tattered menus, but we wanted a quick dinner. It was a mistake. The burgers were not very good. The selection was varied, but the quality was poor.

“poipu burger absolutely delicous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

We had a little difficulty finding these hidden gem but certainly worth the extra effort. Best burger I have had in a long time 18 different types to choose from so everyone will find their favorite. Pricey for a burger joint but everything in Kauai is pricey. Next door is Puka Dog, another great place to try something that is delicous and unique.

“Take A Pass”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

Chose this restaurant, because the one we were going to eat at had just closed. The meals are really over priced considering the quality, my daughter and I split the hawaiian pineapple hamburger it was over cooked and tasteless. My wife had the Mahi Mahi sandwich, it was also over cooked and very dry. We also received about a dozen french fries with each of our sandwiches. The highlight of the restaurant was the hawaiian musician that played the guitar and sang 70's and 80's classics, he was very kind and played the requests that we asked. I would not recommend this restaurant, with all the other restaurants in the plaza.
