The big island, like the rest of Hawaii, doesn't lack high priced restaurants that serve good food. Truthfully, you expect it. The food was good. However, the music was too loud and when we asked for outside seating, the waiter responded with attitude and it went downhill from there. We noticed when we came in that nobody smiled.

We originally tried to eat here on Valentines Day but was turned away. There is really only 2 restaurants in town so we were surprised plus we need to make a reservation for dinner on any night. The food was excellent but a little pricey for the size of town. Very relaxed atmosphere plus nightly entertainment.

Found just by chance looking for a place for dinner before a lava cruise. Loved the food and location.

We love Kaleo's and always have special dinners here, with friends! Lunch is a great price to! It is a bit pricey, sometimes for pretty generic dishes, but always good and they have a full bar service!

The food was average. We went for dinner and it was fairly crowded. Seems like a popular place. There was live music, which was really good entertainment. Our waiter was busy and didn't seem to pay us much attention.

We were directed here from our stay at Klimos. A Saturday at about 1930 after riding to the Lava Flow. We sat at the bar and were basically ignored until one of the other patrons pointed us out to the barman. He then ignored us and finally after half an hour gave us a glass of water, and returned 10... More

Kaleo's was recommended by the guys at Lava Ocean tours. We have some time to kill before our flight back to Kauai and decided to stop and have an early dinner. Oh my gosh!!!! The food was FANTASTIC. The waitstaff were extremely attentive. The prices were VERY reasonable and I was amazed at the variety on the menu. We had... More

Recommended by several local people. Food was good- we had prime rib and teriyaki chicken. Appetizer of coconut shrimp. Good food and nice portions. Busy place so a little hard to hear conversations
