“Good food, service and view...”
Reviewed June 7, 2011

We have been to the island for the past 11 years and always stayed on the south shore. Kalapaki Joes's was a refefreshing change this year. The food was great, the staff and service wonderful! Show up in beach wear or what ever and they provide consistent service and food. We enjoyed the seared ahi, which was perfect, but after a day on the beach our favorite was the Kalapaki Joe Classic burger. We recommend adding the avocado.

The view is unexpected... yes you can see the ocean from the windows, don't let the little beggar birds bother you, they are charming. They had live music each night we were there, not sure it fhat's the norm. Relax enjoy the vibe, good food, drinks and service. If you don't care for it, you should probably stay on the mainland:)

“Best service on island”
Reviewed May 28, 2011

We went to Joe's on our first night on Kauai after leaving rat race of Oahu. We had the fresh fish tacos and the chicken flautas(?). Joe's also had a huge beer selection, including several Belgian beers. The food was excellent. But we were amazed by the good friendly service.Up to this point, our restaurant experiences all showed a serious lack of decent service. I know we are on the islands, but I never thought a disdainful attitude made you much in tips. We will be going back...happy hour prices and selection looked great!

“Would not go back”
Reviewed April 29, 2011

Service was friendly and the burger was good but, upon visiting the restroom before leaving I was horrified. If the kitchen is anywhere near as dirty as the restroom......

“Very good at a great price”
Reviewed April 26, 2011

Four of us ate at Kalapaki's for their happy hour special - $2 off appetizers and cheap drinks. We had a seat at the window overlooking the tennis courts. Perfect! The service was friendly and efficient and the food was very good. It is is typical 'pub' or 'bar' food done very well. I would highly recommend for a casual meal.

“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed March 16, 2011

We hadn't checked the reviews but decided to try it anyway. We were very pleasantly surprised. We had the lobster tacos and the steak burrito and both were great. I couldn't believe the size of the lobster chunks in the tacos and very tasty; price was excellent as well. The view was nice and the service was good. Highly recommended for lunch.
