We think that they have the best happy hour in Poipu. Good selection of beers on tap and great Mai Tai’s. Didn’t care for the “fresh-made” guacamole…didn’t have much flavor. The happy hour fish tacos (mahi mahi) and chicken wings were yummy! We'll be back!

While this is a good place to watch a football game or eat some fried wings, it doesn't have much else to offer. The menu is uninspired and the food is barely okay. The location is excellent, the vibes are right and the views are...More

The fish of the day salad was fresh and delicious. A fun place with good food that isn't overpriced.
