“Great spot for good food, entertainment and true Aloha welcome!”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

The food is very good and served by a wonderful staff. Breakfast, lunch or dinner...we have never had a bad meal. The Manager is superb and knows how to make you feel the true Aloha spirit. The local entertainment and wonderful Tuesday nights with Hawaiian musical favorite Lono are super. Paddlers is a favorite with us!

“Very good food”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

Food here is very good, Ono fish excellent and pulled pork sandwich is yummy. Good atmosphere, we went different days, for lunch and dinner. Sundays they have the Na Ohana Hoaloha band, they are so good. Paddlers do have local entertainment other nights as well tho we didn't manage to see that. Some days service is very fast, other days not so quick. I agree with other reviewers, the flies were a nuisance, must have been wrong time of year (March) ! I guess it's difficult to control them as restaurant is open to the elements, maybe a couple of electric fly killers might help. It's a shame as the food is so good and everyone very friendly.

“Good Food - Bad Flies”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

I ate at Paddlers several times and the food has always been pretty good. Service is great and the owner is very friendly and helpful. Prices are par for the course.

Unfortunately for us, the trades weren't blowing in Jan and Feb. and the flies got to be a real nuisance. I don't know what could be done, since it's an open air setting.

“Food GREAT, seating and flies, POOR”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

The food here was soooo amazing, I would love to give Paddler's Inn 5 stars. However, when when you have to inhale your food while swatting away the flies, it pretty much kills it for you! BBQ pork sandwiches are to die for...just order it to go! The outdoor setting is just too open for flies to really enjoy yourself.

“Waitresses need TRAINING!”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

The food is good, but the place is always very dirty, the waitresses need training, the orders are always wrong, it seems 1 waitress takes your order, & another one TRIES to find who it belongs too. Way to many mistakes, the waitresses do not seem to take their jobs seriously, or they just do not care. On most week end nights, they are out of many of the items on the menu, this should NOT keep happening.
