“Not impressed”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

My husband wanted to try one of their grass fed hamburgers…their special burger with everything on it sounded like too much food so he had their regular burger. He said it was okay but nothing spectacular. I had the fish and chips…the fish overcooked and dry but the chips (fries) were good. The fish and chips came with coleslaw which was okay but drowning in mayonnaise. Our waitress was definitely “all business “ -- not too friendly. We’ve been there a couple times now and probably will move on and try someplace else.

“Great burgers and fish-N-chips”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Food was great. All kinds of burger combinations and the fish and chips were delicious. The owner (who is native to the island) stopped by our table and had a great conversation about the area and history. We would definitely visit again.

“Excellent Burger with a Hawian Twist if you would like”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Found this place by accident and we are very happy we did.

We had great service start to finish from our waiter, he was super polite and checked on us a few times, enough to make sure everything was ok but not so many times to be annoying.

The burger is the real deal here, very tasty with 5 or so options, depending how much Hawaii you want to put on your burger you can go all out with their signature burger or there are scaled back options, if one or two toppings arnt your thing.

This is a place I would go to all the time knowing I was going to enjoy myself at a good price if I was local.

This Burger will be the measuring stick for the next while for me.

“Poor service and so-so food”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

This restaurant had a convenient location in the Poipu Shopping Village, but never seemed very busy. We tried it twice and both times we had slow and unfriendly servers. The pineapple waffles had a few pieces of canned pineapple in the waffle and a small scoop of canned crushed pineapple on top. The burgers were of average fast food quality, but were more expensive. We cannot recommend this restaurant.

“2 for 4”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

We waited forever, forever. We had gone after the lunch rush hoping the service would be good. After about 60 minutes, 2 plates came out. 20 minutes or so later, mine arrived. Every time a server walked past, they continued to say, you're next, you're next. Well, we weren't. And they didn't seem the least bit concerned that one of our party still had not received his food. Needless to say, we left before his food arrived, come on, it was almost 2 hours! And they weren't going to take his off the bill. Really. We left in disgust, leaving my husband to deal with the bill. And it was a fight. The food was mediocre, the service shockingly bad, and the customer service abysmal. We won't be back.
