“Breakfast, with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

It was great. Had some sort of Kaulu pork scramble. Yummy. Kids had longboard breakfast. Also very good.

Decent service. Good food. Would go again.

“Surpisingly Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Looked like a Hawaiian TGIF or Applebees when we walked in, but food selection is very broad and we were pleasantly pleased with how well prepared the dishes were. waitresses were very attentive. Drinks were well made.

“Good Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

The very good review is for breakfast. We had dinner one night and everyone's fish was way overcooked. Huge portions, friendly service.

“Ok happy hour”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

There are now 3 Kalapaki Joes on Kauai. All are just plain lousy! I don't like to write things like this, but seriously the food and service are poor. Cheap drinks and beer for happy hour. That's nice. Food is all Costco bought and prepared. We have not been to the new location one can only think that it is the same as the others. Food is fried, overcooked, under spiced and is just not that good for the money. The service is C team at best. Lots of kids and families here for cheap bar food. We will not be back, Sorry!

“Good place for a beer but BBQ is microwaved, nothing spectacular”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

We stopped in to try it out and the food was really mediocre. I ordered the pork sandwich thinking it would be Hawaiian pork but in reality, it tasted like one of those supermarket BBQ bowls you heat up in the microwave. I couldn't eat it all. Save your time and avoid frustration, stay away.
