“Atmosphere and Dessert!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Beautiful open-air restaurant with excellent service. The appetizer muffins and sweet butter were delicious! My vegetarian meal was good, not great, but the Hula Pie alone would take me back.

“Nice spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

This was recommended by the concierge at the hotel ...& after checking Trip Advisor, we figured we would give it a try.

Glad we went ... The food was good. There was live music & we were glad that we weren't seated by the bar area where the music was (it wasn't too loud... It's just not how we would like to experience dinner)... The hula pie was great! It was brought out with a spork, which prompted a conversation by a neighboring table...& after further investigation, sporks are also known as foons... According to Wikipedia.

Great atmosphere & food! Overall a great memorable dinner!

“Great time and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

We originally made reservations for the dining room. As we got to the restaurant, we decided on something more casual. The hostess had no difficulty seating us in the bar, offering the bar menu and the full menu as well. It was great to have the options. In a more casual mood, we ordered off the bar menu. Starting with the calamari, it was excellent. The hamburger and steak sandwich were great as well. We finished with a piece of hula pie. We barely made a dent. The bar had entertainment which was perfect. Funny with good music, but not overbearing. You could still have a conversation. We had a great time and would certainly repeat if we had additional nights on the island.

“Another trip, another good experience at Keoki's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

On the annual trip to Poipu, we try to hit Keoki's at least once. This time it was a luncheon adventure, and as always, found it to be a good choice. Food, service, atmosphere all combine to make this a good "go-to" for a nice meal. It continues to be a good dining experience in an area which has many.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

We have eaten at this restaurant several times and had outstanding meals each time. The food is fresh and tasty. The Hula Pie is also amazing.
