Fun environment with outdoor or open air seating. Waitress was pleasant and energetic. We went for happy hour and enjoyed the 1/2 off bottles of wine and special appetizer prices. The food needed a bit more flavor but worth the visit.

While the view on the outside patio was GREAT, unfortunately, the fish tacos and kalua pork sandwich and the fish and chips, were not awful, but not great. Next to Dukes in Lihue (near the Marriott), they were not worth eating. That sounds harsh; and really, these dishes were edible. But, next to the quality of Dukes, some 25 miles... More

I've taken my brother here. We've taken my wife's sister and brother-in-law here. We've taken our kids here. And everyone loves the place and the food. Get an outside table and enjoy the fresh air and great food. The staff is friendly and helpful. Nothing but great things to say about this place.

Whatever you do... get the mango vinaigrette. It may have been the best dressing I've ever had. Get it on everything you eat or drink. Ok, maybe not everything you drink. But, still. Sooooo goood! Husband had the poke bowl appetizer, I had the mixed green salad with the best dressing ever (mango vinaigrette, come on!!!). Husband had ahi fish... More

This place is only open for breakfast on weekends. It's pretty good. We had the peaches and cream stuffed French toast and the Crab omelette. It sounded better on the menu than it actually was. Probably won't be back, but it was worth stopping in. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the restaurant is a great atmosphere.

We were visiting the North Shore and stopped in on a whim and were very pleased. The seafood chowder was excellent, best ever! Thick and creamy. The fish & chips and the coconut shrimp were also well above average. Miguel was our server and it appeared he was busier than any other server. Excellent service. Would definitely go back and...

Best service I've had on the island! They were prompt and personable. Added bonus I love waffle fries, and they were delicious.

Thank Callie J
