This is a fun restaurant with excellent service and delicious food. Their mai tais are legendary (or so I was told). They're sweet, smooth and go down easy. The fish tacos are the best I've had anywhere. This is a great place to start your...More

We got recommendation from local taxi co. - Walked in without a reservation- we had coconut shrimp and sampler platter to start- both were outstanding. The sauces were flavorful and the fish fresh. The platter had shrimp, chicken wings, fried artichoke and calamari. My husband...More

Definitely a sports bar. But its so airy and open that you dont feel all closed up and dark like a typical bar. Food good, lots to pick from. Great portions and helpful staff. Very busy so get ready to wait

Had the fish and chips. Great choice. Finished off with a chocolate shake. Watched NFL kickoff game here. Great service. Great friendly staff. Make it a point to get here while in Kauai. Slightly pricier, but you're on vacation. So it's worth it.

My poke bowl was really good. Wife's burger was okay. Fried artichokes squirt oil out when we cut into them. Shrimp were good, but standard frozen coconut shrimp you get anywhere. Atmosphere is loud and fun. Lots of locals in for a drink. Small kids...More

I confess, I didn't notice, but my sister in law had a pasta style dish made with zucchini noodles instead of pasta. Does that help?

I don't know if they take reservations. We did not mind the wait. The place is very informal and the maitais at the bar made us forget we were waiting for a table.
