During a week stay in Princeville area of Kauai, we probably came here 3-4 times and it never disappointed. Its a very comfortable bar and restaurant to just hang loose and enjoy Happy Hour or meals. Loved the Loco Moco for breakfast!

We enjoyed some appetizers and drinks here where we watched our favorite college football teams play. The Poké was delicious, as were the fried artichoke hearts, chicken quesadilla, and seared tuna. As others have stated, the service is really fast, which is uncommon here in...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?
