In Kauai you can visit the "high priced" restaurants near Poipou or you can dine on the river for reasonable prices. This restaurant is by no means fancy, just good basic food. You will find many locals visiting. They have a small salad bar which...More

Not a very busy place. The view is gorgeous. The salad bar was not well stocked with variety. I ordered grilled chicken. The waiter said they were out so I ordered grilled mahi. Generous portion and cooked just right. Not a bad place. Could be...More

We sat on the patio with a nice view of the river. The servers were attentive, but the food was not great. Basic bland salad bar with watery lettuce, Entrees were below average. Too bad because the service and view were good.
