Off the tourist strip and frequented by locals, my niece who lives in the area suggested the Korner Pocket for dinner. We enjoyed the laid back casual atmosphere and everyone loved their dinner.

Can be a bit noisy at times since people are having fun. The wide selection of food is good. I really like the prime rib sandwich.

I'm super picky and can be a difficult customer. Cassie handled me just great. I would recommend requesting her if she is working.

You wouldn't know if from the outside, but this this spot has the best food we've found on the Island in 9 months. Great prime rib. Excellent bands. Cool local vibe. Chilled people. Highly recommended.

Ahi Pok Nachos were different. Wanted to try on the advice of a friend. Wonton chips tasted burnt. Ono fish sandwich was over cooked and dry. Fries were great and the beer was cold. Service was slow but they were busy when we got there.

Simple food. Great taste. Ahi Poke Nachos is a MUST. Try it. You wont regret it. Waitresses were very friendly and food was fast. It's also a bar but its not a dark bar. Very well lit with glass walls to let light in.
