Excellent service and food. Great beer selection is coldest on the island! We shared the nachos and the muscles and clams. Both were very good. Sit outside and enjoy both the view and the breeze.

This is usually the first, and last, stop when we come to Kauai. Their breakfast menu (served until 4pm) has some wonderful delicious items. The pancakes are great, but good luck eating more than one as they are huge. My favorite is the locomoco, best on the island. All lunch and dinner items are equally great. The place is usually...

Came here on an early Sunday for breakfast and was super impressed! I had the florentine and couldn't shut up about it! My husband had the loco moco and I couldn't stop stealing bights! Bonus points for good bloody mary's and tropical mimosas too. Extra credit for having big TV's without making you feel like you're in a sports bar... More

We were on an organised tour The Directors Cut from the Pride Of America Cruise Ship. Although a set menu there was a choice of three meals. I had the fish and it was delicious. I am going back to Kauai next year but will be staying in Hanalei not cruising. Will definitely return.

Drinks took a while to come out, the happy hour nachos were huge but the chips were stale. They at least have us a 10% discount, so that was nice (yay $0.70!!! off!). Would only come back for a beer. They had a good selection of crafts.

Stopped here for a quick bite right when we arrived on Kauai. We shared the fish & chips & ribs. We were thinking of ordering something else but our waiter steered us to the fish & ribs and it was very good. Friendly people, the Mai Tai cocktails were good, it you sit near the window facing the street it... More

Stopped for dinner after walking around the shops. Everything was very good. Outside dining was nice. Good service and good prices.

We visited Kalypso's during our Honeymoon for the All night happy hour on Wednesday. We also enjoyed a Poke Bowl and each got dinner. I got the steak which was pretty thin for the cut of steak but it was seasoned perfectly. We'll definitely go there again when we come back to Kauai.

Food and service were disappointing. Had coconut shrimp (over cooked) and fried artichoke hearts (mushy). Clams and Mussels were excellent.

The Kalypso Bar and Grill is a great place to eat and enjoy a favorite beverage. To tourists new to Kauai the menu has a variety to choose from. To locals it is a great sports bar far away from the action on the mainland. The wait staff are friendly, they know the menu well. Children, dogs and the island... More
