We stopped here on impulse one rainy day after a hike. Food was inexpensive (for Hawaii), hearty, and there was a diversity of beers available. Service very friendly.

We went here for lunch. Everything tasted like frozen. The burger was just ok. I would only come here for drinks

Nice selection of beers and cocktails. I'd call it upscale pub fare. You should expect to pay more for food on Kauai, so that was no problem. Everything was very tasty and plentiful. A great place to get out of the rain (again, not unexpected...More

I confess, I didn't notice, but my sister in law had a pasta style dish made with zucchini noodles instead of pasta. Does that help?
