I have eatten here every year that i go to Kauai. Thats like the last 5 yrs. Nice view, good service, and the price is right. During Happy Hour theres music. nice ocean view. It gets crowed when the cruise ship is in port. A lot of passangers seem to drink there. Please try the Hula PIE. Its great. One slice is good for 2 or 3 people.

“Great location, good prices, great time”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We went there during happy hour 4-6 and were surprised at a lot of the values during that time, especially for Kauai. We were basically able to eat off the happy hour menu and save a ton of money, and it was tasty. Save room for the Hula Pie, its something else. Also the Mai Tai's were quite tasty.

“Nice beer selection”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Good place for lunch with a beer. As with all Duke's, location, location, location! Fish tacos are a good choice.

“Nice Place”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

This adults is all open air dining a nice waterfall flowing through the middle. The salad bar is simple, but very good and fresh. Lots of fresh, fish on the menu and it .is good. The is prompt and friendly. The price is typical of a resort (a little over priced for what it is). I would recommend this place and the bar makes some great island drinks.

“Great spot, great food”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We were in a hurry to eat something before our long flight back to the mainland. We were seating immediately downstairs with their more casual bar menu. Coconut shrimp was good and so were the fish and chips. Nothing fancy but great service and quality food. Nice view overlooking the bay. One of the better casual meals we had on the island. They were very accommodating to speed up the process in order to help us make our flight.
