I got a fish and chips as it was listed as special. It was a big disappointment when I saw the plate on the table. They used old oil to Fry the fries and fish and the fries were frozen string fries not made from fresh. They could at least make the fries on a special plate. I should have... More

The Paddler's Inn is under new management. The food was outstanding. They had a brisket that was very "Ono" and the chicken sandwich is now a new favorite. Service was helpful and menu had a nice variety. Definitely worth a stop while you are in Kaunakakai!

We went there in Saturday when there was life music. We payed 20 dollars and It was really worth it. Music was excellent,people were having fun. This is how night life for locals looks like so nice to spend one evening there. We ate shrimps and it was veery good.

Good, friendly bar. Michael, the bartender, is superb. After 1 visit he knew what we wanted to drink and our names. Under new ownership and when everything is in place should be even better. Looked at new menu and prices seem to be in line with other places on Molokai. Reminds me of Cheers; everyone knows your name.

For a restaurant still adding finishing touches, they had GREAT burgers and tacos! Come on now, you can't have a plate lunch every day.

This rambling sports bar is multi-purpose. The long bar serves its obvious purpose. There are pool tables for those so inclined, and they have an outside covered beer garden where the bands set-up. The menu also fits all. It's focus is pub-grub, but there's a kids menu for the younger crowd. They take cards and offer carry-out.

We had a fun evening at the Paddler's Inn in July 2016. The entertainment on the night we were there was a ukulele/guitar player who also sang. He was amazing! Food was good and atmosphere comfortable.

Paddler's Inn is one of only a few restaurants on the island of Molokai, and only one of two restaurants that serve alcohol. My husband and I ate there the first night we arrived. We'd heard good things about it, so we figured "why not?" Paddler's Inn is basically a bar that serves food. It was not a bad atmosphere,... More

Lots of character to this place and plenty of parking. You have to order your food at a window. They don't sell bar t shirts anymore. Different types of live music on different nights.
