I'll start out positive here. Waitstaff was very nice, our server Kellie was very helpful and pleasant. Lots of decent food choices and the food was very good and worth returning for. Parts of the downside.... it is an outdoor dining with birds and chickens local to the are free to roam ( not their fault) but I would suggest... More

We had dinner here and the food was excellent. I had shrimp scampi with linguine and my husband had a local favorite of beef and tomato. Both meals were delicious. The entree prices were in line with the other restaurants. There is an ocean view but the out door patio overlooks a small parking lot to a nearby park /... More

We shared two meals here. Great Reuben sandwich. Burger also very good. I love their rice and steamed cabbage. This is a football sports bar and grill. They have coconut por pie on the menu but we were to full to try the desserts. Nice place for a quick lunch

The location is great. The wine was good, the drinks were good. The teriyaki chicken was lacking teriyaki, and flavor. The Kalua pig was super salty, and the specialty steak below average. We had much higher expectations for what is called Kauai's original steakhouse. Fries were great - burgers probably are as well. Service was excellent and friendly.

We went into JJ's today in hopes of watching the Cubs / Giants game. Unfortunately we are visitors, and today was college football Saturday. JJ's is a "local" hang out place that serves up a bunch of college football on the weekends. The manager at the front desk let us know this as soon as we walked in...of the 20... More

We tried several of the pricey beachfront restaurants, but this was had awesome food for the price. Not as fancy-schmancy, but more low-key and with a great view. Definitely worth the money.

Right on Kalapaki Beach next to the Kauai Marriott. Perfect as a last hurrah before our 10 pm flight to reality and bk to work. Food is good and out back is spectacular view and great sounds of surf and cockadoodle dos. Manager and Colleen our waitress very nice and friendly.
