“Nice spot for lunch”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

After a morning of paddle boarding we decided to have a bit of lunch and a couple of beers. JJ's offers outdoor seating overlooking Kalapaki Beach. The beers were $4 and cold and the food was good but not great. It was a nice lunch...in a nice spot...our server was attentive and its hard not to like the laid back location.

“Great food and drinks, attentive service, beautiful location”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

This family run restaurant is a gem of Kauai. The service aims to please, the food is awesome, the drinks are unique and hit the spot, and the location is very convenient. From watching football games at the bar, to sitting bayside on the balcony, you can't go wrong by visiting JJ's Broiler.

“Views and More”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

Food was good, drinks were good. Fairly inexpensive for Kauai. We tried the Steak, ice cream pie, French Onion Soup, Ruebens. Waitress and host were friendly and outstanding. Parking was good considering the area.

“If you like Frozen deep fried food, eat at JJs”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

The reviews here puzzle me. You can go to any grocery store, buy some frozen food and drop it into a deep fryer and get something better. Our waitress seemed very bitter about something and was cold and inattentive.

I ordered a Mojito since it was one of 4 drinks on their specials list, and was told they were "out of Mojitos". Mojitos take some effort to make, I think that is why they were "out", but who knows.

The $8 chocolate cake was still almost frozen and soggy. Go across the street to Kalapaki Joes, better food and better prices, but views are nicer here.

Maybe we caught it on an off night?

“Good food and great service!!!!!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

Stopped by JJs for lunch and to watch the bronco game. The food was great and the service was fantastic. The restaurant is within walking distance from the Lihue Marriott and less pricey than the restaurants within the resort complex. Great place to go if you want to watch a game.
