The fried artichokes were perfectly cooked. The shrimp and wings were over cooked. The ahi stacker was very good and had lots of ahi. The lettuce wraps had a lot of ahi and calamari. The drinks were good

One of few restaurants in this small north coast town has excellent service from a friendly, almost comical, staff. The menu, either lunch or dinner, has a good variety of Hawaiian specialties with just enough American standards to keep the kids happy. Prices are reasonable.

If you’re looking for the best Loco Moco on the north shore this is by far my favorite. It’s HUGE and absolutely delicious. My wife doesn’t care for Loco Moco’s and this place got her hooked. We ate there 3 times and all the food...More

Tried this place on a lark. Great eats. Even the gluten free options were good. Service was prompt and courteous. Never had to ask for anything. Server was always prompt and kept us very happy. Open air and no A/C, but still comfortable.

Best Happy Hour deals in Hanalei! Great Mai Tai's and OK nachos. We went to every happy hour in the town of Hanalei and found this to be the best deal- 4 drinks and a plate of nachos for $40.

We went early for dinner, not realizing it was happy hour, because we saw a very long line the other night. We were pleasantly surprised at the happy hour specials and the coconut shrimp were out of this world probably the best we've ever had....More

This was the first day meal my family ate on our recent trip to Kaua’i. For the most part everyone really enjoyed their meals. They had Vegan options (for myself) but they were a little limiting. I decided to go pescatarian (shrimp) for this meal...More

We went for HH this past week. Great beer list and the coconut shrimp is to die for. The wings were also pretty bomb.

I confess, I didn't notice, but my sister in law had a pasta style dish made with zucchini noodles instead of pasta. Does that help?

I don't know if they take reservations. We did not mind the wait. The place is very informal and the maitais at the bar made us forget we were waiting for a table.
