The place to go on Wednesday night this side of the island. Great live music, great variety of food both hot and produce, well poured highballs. An excellent mix of locals and tourists.

A Hawaiian experience. Go on Wednesday night. Bring your appetite, and your own shopping bag to stock up on produce, clothes and crafts. We really enjoyed the live music and dancing. Go early to trek to the black sand beach before the market.

Was so glad we decided to go, was worth the drive. The kalua nachos were a favorite. Was a nice mix of locals, visitors, young and old... very aloha.
