“Excellent happy hour 3-6”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

This is a very good sports bar kind of spot for happy hour everyday 3-6. The wings were good but a little spicy. The nachos were good and the fish tacos were excellent. The drinks were good but a little watered down. Happy hour prices were very reasonable and the view/setting is nice. Service was pretty good considering it was kind of busy. We would definitely recommend this place especially if you aren't looking for something too fancy or expensive after a day on the beach.

“Great meal to wrap up an amazing day on Kauai!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

C.C. Was our server and she was awesome! All of her recommendations were Home Runs!
The Ahi appetizer and the nachos with Kalua were an amazing start! Our family ordered a steak, a patty melt, a blackened ahi salad and the fish tacos. All our meals arrived quickly and looked as great as they tasted! The cocktails were plentiful and delicious! A giant brownie with ice cream was dessert and was more than enough for a family of four to share! Well done on all levels, especially CC and the rest of the staff!

“Gross food, dirty restaurant, poor service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We went to this restaurant for lunch when we were super hungry and left disappointed and still hungry because the food was too gross to eat much of it. I actually went and got an awesome hotdog at Puka Dog's right afterwards. We had a shrimp appetizer which was pretty good, but our main meals of steak sandwich and lobster quesadilla were nothing short of disgusting. The tables were sticky, birds were flying in and sitting on other tables, eating leftover food. The waitress was unfriendly.

“Generous servings, good quality food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Kalapaki Joes is our go to place when we want a casual place to eat-I love salads and they have the biggest and best salads that I've tried in Kauai-since lettuce and other salad ingredients need to be shipped to Kauai, most restaurants salads are on the skimpy side, but not at Kalapaki Joe's. the non salad items are delicious as well. We will definitely continue to eat there when we're out in Kauai!

“Horrible service!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

My husband and I went there on a Sunday afternoon. It took about 15 minutes to be waited on and after another 10 minutes we asked if we could PLEASE be served our drinks. Our lunches arrived much later. They served me the wrong salad. I was so frustrated by this time that I was going to go ahead and eat it. The waitress walked by and said OOPS! That's the wrong one and swooped it away. I'd never go back.
