While off the main drag in Hanalei, I was surprised how good the pizza was. I also enjoyed the live music and casual atmosphere.

We went to their Wednesday night luau, mostly because it was the closest one to where we were staying and some in our family had never been to one. The staff were very friendly and you do get to see them take the kalua pig...More

Loved this place, the staff was friendly and everything we tried from the kitchen was delicious. Beer was cold and the Happy Hour prices were good. Can’t wait to go back there when we visit again.

This place is such a breath of fresh air. Pure Aloha! Get there early as it fills up fast. It's not a huge place and the tables are almost touching, but what a great way to meet some new people. We went twice...the first time...More

The bands are usually in the evening. Been to happy hour and no bands. We just enjoy the deck outside

We were there on a Tuesday evening, the duo was a father and son and their music was varied and quite good. Family friendly and convivial crowd. Not to be missed for local flavor.
