“Great for Breakfast and Happy Hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2011

We went to Kalapaki Joe's for happy hour and lunch both were very good. The breakfast however is excellent. Plus if you're a sports fan there are televisions with every sports team on.

“Eh, bar food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2011

Read the reviews, decided to go.... It was a loud sports bar with so so food. It's bar food. Our server was not real interested in working, hence, we waited a bit to order. Asked for hot sauce for fish tacos so she brought the habanero sauce. They had Tabasco on the shelf next to habanero sauce. Oh well, I can handle spicy. If you want to visit a sports bar and have normal bar food while vacationing in Kauai. Go for it.

“Best hawo ppy hour on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

We stayed in Poipu for two weeks and came to Kalapaki Joes at least six times! We watched a lot of football, drank a lot of good beers and devoured the 25 cent hot wings! By the third time we visited, the staff already knew us by name and we felt like family. Love this place!

“Terrible management”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2011

Seared ahi sandwich was mostly inedible due to poor piece of fish. Manager would do nothing for us and server said that it is hit or miss with ahi and that is how it goes and that is how their manager is. Go anywhere other than here!
