“King Cassava”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Fun place to grab a beer and talk with locals from Hopkins!
Beer is cold, weather is hot. Easy to find, right on the corner!

“Drumming anyone?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

If you are as lucky as we were, you'll be there on a night when Jesse is drumming. King Cassava is THE place to have a beer, catch up on sports on the TV, watch anyone coming to town drive by, and listen to the locals.

“Nice little restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

The location of King Cassava was great for us, as it was a short walk from our guest house. It is right in the centre of the main street in Hopkins. The owner has friendly, prompt service and cooks up a great meal! We even brought a barracuda that we had caught ourselves, and she cooked it up for us no problem. The fish and meal with it was very tasty. Prices are very reasonable. I would definitely recommend King Cassava to Hopkins travellers.

“Don't Eat or Drink Here”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Possibly the worst meal I have ever eaten. Ordered nachos with chicken and my wife ordered a beef burger. It took over half hour to get our food. The waitress seemed to be having a bad day, and wasn't friendly at all. Even worse, we decided to finish our beers at the little bar there. The owner "king" was behind the bar, and we witnessed him overcharging a group of 8 or 9 people who had come for drinks. When one of the group questioned the high prices, king told the man that beers were $5 each and margaritas were $18. Funny, we had just paid $4 and $15 ???

“Great Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

King Cassava is located right at the main intersection when you first enter into Hopkins. Staff is very friendly, bathroom is clean, and daily specials include rice/beans/chicken, etc. $10 BZ for rice and beans with stewed chicken. Average wait for food. Nachos with chicken are tasty. Conch steak was very good and shrimp cooked with vegies/garlic also enjoyable.
