Very casual dining. Hawaiian California fusion cuisine. Inexpensive and generous portions. Try the pig nachos, enough for 4 people easily unless its 4 hungry teenagers. Great happy hour deals.

Excellent food with a carribean feel. The ahi tuna was fantastic. Low key and kid friendly. The man fries are just awesome

They gave us way too much food for what we ordered. I wish that they had concentrated a bit more on quality of the food instead of the quantity, though.

Second time visiting. Ordered the Nachos with pulled pork - "Outstanding". Service was superb. Six adults and one infant. Very accommodating staff. If you're new to the restaurant; don't be afraid to go with the recommendations of the wait staff. They have been spot on!!!!!

Hapa J's has a pretty kick back atmosphere true to its Hawaiian Style. Came for a business lunch and the food was spot on. I had the Short Rib Sandwich stuffed with avocado, peppers, and little slabs of Galbi meat slathered in the sweet chile...More
