Been to alot of places and this just remindsme of home. I had the spicy philly and honestly that was done the right way and I can't say that about alot of places. For the right price, considering it is hawii, we returned several times for that trip.

We were on the hunt for great Happy Hours in Poipu, and this definitely wins. All beer and all pupus are included in their Happy Hour. Great for a couple (one who may not care for sports bars when in Hawaii)...beach view, open air, and a sports bar with unending TVs! The Brie appetizer is to die for, and every... More

Visited twice during our week-long stay on Kauai in October 2013. Typical bar food, but great deals during happy hour and definitely the best place we found for sports on the island. If you're staying in Poipu I would definitely recommend stopping by for a few drinks and half price apps!

We went here three times in our 8 day visit. The hostess and waitresses were great, they remember us and provided great service each time. We went for Happy hour and despite reputation, it wasn't that busy and we were able to get a table. The $3.00 fish tacos were awesome, as were the wings and cheezy fries. They have... More

Looking for a break and too kick back? Maybe just a slice of home, a sports bar with great bar food plus great atmosphere. Joe's has it all. Happy hour rocks and food is great. I had 2 racks of ribs which fell off the bone. My wife had coconut shrimp . Both delicious. Dinner portions are too much to... More

I was looking for a breakfast sandwich on a Sunday morning. I sat a a community type of table near the bar and waited, but no one brought a menu until the bar tender saw me and asked someone to bring one. That was about 5 to 10 minutes after I sat down. The restaurant was about 25% full with... More

I have been to Kalapaki Joe's over the years and the food has gone down hill. I think they may have a cleanliness issue as the food seemed to run right through us. We really liked it in the past and suggest to the management that they review the kitchen process and cleaning. We would love to return, but would... More

We were very impressed with the food. We went with my sister the first time and all of us had fish or fish and shrimp. It was so yummy and the portions were huge. We had to go back so my husband and I went back again. I had the lobster burrito with big chunks of lobster and lots of... More

We found this place when driving from our resort, Point at Poipu. We actually walked to and from the resort to the restaurant a couple times via a shortcut that am not able to describe. The food was very good. I had the pulled pork sndwich twice and my wife's food was rated just as high. The prices are on... More

the food was good but a bit pricey. They have many TV's but changed the channel on the TV we were watching a couple of times for new customers while "the game" was on. Very frustrating. They should put fans together so all customers can watch their team of choice.
