It's th only place to get draft beer on Molokai. No sea view, but authentic and the food is good. Better said in than the hotel restaurant. Great poke plates.

Great food and fun bar. Had an excellent burger with a fun tomato relish. Wife had a lovely noodle dish for lunch. Bartender/waiter guy is the hardest working guy on the island. Always good music here, especially Lono, and great people watching. Paddle on!

Fun place, varied entertainment nightly. Great burgers and food service. The draft beers are always cold and refreshing. Try an evening at Paddlers when Lono is entertaining with local songs and music.

We arrived early afternoon and stopped in town to make diving arrangements for the next day. This is an eclectic bar/resturant that served okay burgers and great onion rings. A couple of beers on tap with the remainder in bottles or cans. This place looks...More

Molokai is a uniquely wonderful Hawaiian island and Paddlers Restaurant is a part of that beauty. A favorite local hangout and a favorite of those visiting the island. The food is absolutely great, there is a full bar including specialty drinks, a large selection of beer and various wines. Live entertainment is provided with no cover charge most nights. There service is outstanding and every effort is made to make sure our guests are happy and satisfied.
