My husband and I stopped here for a quick lunch, and were shocked at how good it was. We got the chicken quesadillas and they were amazing!! I would absolutely go again and recommend it to others!

Kalapaki Grill has your typical "bar food" and tropical drinks, along with the standard beers, soft drinks and wine. You can take a seat at the bar, sit at one of the tables on the large patio or get chairside service at the pool. Because the wait staff covers such a large area, it may take a while to get... More

Our meal was OK. Nothing special and a bit pricey. It wasn't very busy and we still had to wait for over 10 minutes for service.

this is such a great place to have lunch, a cocktail, watch tv, it's right at the pool at the Marriott resort on Kalapaki Beach and you will be sure to make new friends here. It is a real shame Marriott is closing this down, they have the largest pool in Hawaii, they way (think it might be true) and... More

Food was good. Not the best fish tacos but sandwiches and wraps were good. Also had a delicious quinoa salad with chicken.

We love this place and over the years, staying at nearby Marriott , eat either breakfast or lunch almost daily to save big$$ vs. expensive hotel food and lousy nearby food joints. The food here is always a delight-some favorites include Portuguese sausage with omelet breakfast pr their breakfast egg sandwich; burgers are great, fish sandwiches are terrific-often varied between...

Kalapaki is located on Marriott property in Lihue. The bar is on Kalapaki beach. Richard was our bartender and seem to love all his guests. The guests at the bar were hooked on the fish tacos and mai tais. The food was reasonable but the drinks were very pricey. For example, it was $12.00 for a mai tais, and your... More

Drinks and food is overpriced, but overall the view is amazing. This is the pool bar for the Marriott resort.
