“Couldn't get rid of the gnats!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

I like outdoor dining but this evening the gnats were everywhere and there were no options to avoid them except to have it to take home (which we should have done). The food was okay but it was too distracting to keep swatting the bugs. By the time we finished, our table was covered with dead bugs which was really disgusting. The waitress kept apologizing saying the recent rain caused a swarm to come out. This Poipu area doesn't get much rain so this was unusual (it has been raining all week). So maybe this review may be unfair - I can only relate what we went through.

“OK burgers in the tropics”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

We had two burgers and the mahi mahi burger. The fries were out of a bag. The burgers were good and the mahi burger was good as well. the service was ok. It was very busy but they should have been ready for a Saturday night.

“Good food, varied menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

We ate here for dinner, finding this place by accident. The food is about the same price as other comparable places. It is in the Poipu Shopping Village and has a front porch overlooking the courtyard of the shopping village. The waitress was friendly, helpful and efficient. Our food was served promptly and was tasty. Their specialty is burgers although I had the chicken sandwich with pineapple.

“meh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

we decided to stop here for lunch on our way back from walking the mahaulepu heritage trail. The server was trying his best, but unfortunately the food was horrible. My fiance ordered the tropical burger, specifically asking that the patty be cooked well done. The burger came half cooked on one side and about medium on the other side. We brought this up with the server, who tried to make the best of the situation but it's hard to make up for something that was specifically requested and disregarded.
