JJ's Broiler?

Has anyone eaten lunch or dinner here recently? I haven't dared try it again since having a lousy dinner there, but I'm wondering. Maybe try lunch? Comments?

This is pretty much what I expected to hear. Mahalos.

I also crossed off my list years ago but as PZP also wondered if any improvement.

Restaurant Impossible has not made a visit since mine and the previous posters visits made long ago.

Some reviews on Yelp support our decisions.

actually the last couple of times we went there it hasn't been bad at all. The spot is great. It's defn tourist pricing, but we didn't see cleanliness issues.

Top of the list? not hardly. Vs. Dukes downstairs -- about a push.

Our expeiences.......suffice to say, we passs JJ.'s most every day on our kauai lagoon hikes or beacing it at Kalapaki beach and we do not enter their doors.

Why ?, way over priced and lousey meals.....after past experiences that were bad, we recently gave it another try with our Talk Story Book Store friends......same old not good anything.

That is it, we have written JJ's name down, drawn a line through it, and tossed it in the round file.

We even tried the bar, just to have drinks since the location is really nice......same old indifference and lack of people skills. Some folks like that type of attitude, we do not.

We have , however, over many, many years have had wonderful and fun experiences at Dukes Canoe Club downstairs.....freindly greetings, great service, and tasty meals. That is 100% of lots of meals and drinks there.......Duke's is far and above JJ's, no contest at any level.

I guess JJ's survives on the one-time cruise ship visitors who don't know any better and won't be back anyway. Sad. Their deck isn't a bad spot for lunch.

I really can't believe that place is still here. I had absolutely the most awful meal on Kauai ever there. Granted, it has been a number of years ago.

Strangely, the more recent reviews on TA are pretty positive. I don't trust them.
