Any Packers fans on Kauai? Best sports bar for playoff game?

Husband and I will be staying in Poipu through next week and our only hard-and-fast plans are to make sure we don't miss the Packers game on Sunday! I did some Googling and found a sports bar called Kalapaki Joe's in Lihue. Just wondering if that's a good place or if there is something closer to Poipu.

They have a Kalapaki Joes in Poipu now too and Robs Good Time Grill in Lihue will have Packers fans I am sure.

Also, the restaurant at Poipu Bay Golf Course has the games on - a terrific environment/food and they never rush you out in any way! It's our new find and we are impressed!

Kalapaki Joe's in Poipu is fine. Just a whole lot more rough and ready. Maybe that's what you want? Joe's on the Green has TVs up, too. It's just back past the side road for entering Poipu Shopping Centre.

Die hard Packer fan here, watched at Kalapaki Joe's Poipu as they beat Minnesota in 2010. Great atmosphere, my sister and I (early sixties) were totally comfortable there and probably the loudest fans. Not rough at all and there was even a guy with a cheesehead on. Stayed for the whole game, ate appetizers and nursed 2 drinks. Never felt rushed and our waiter was a Vikings fan. Great experience sitting in an open air restaurant, with a view of palm trees and blue sky while watching the Pack.

I know they have televised MMA there on some nights which may draw a rougher crowd than we experienced.

Mezzsop, I'll have to try the restaurant at the Poipu Bay Golf Course when I'm there next year.

We are also Packers fans, and I wear my NFL Arron Rodgers jersey.

Quite often we go to Kalapaki Joes in Poipu as well a Lihue, and also Robs in Lihue.

They all have a great NFL or sports bar type of enviornment.

Just the the other night after dinner at Keoki's Paradise, we stopped at Kalapaki Joes in Poipu for a while. Had a great time, caught the tail end of one of the games, and was able to visit with a good friend of ours Dan who is now the night manager and bartender.

We were sitting next to a nice resident haole couple, young , on our left, on our right were two local fellahs who were chefs at Keokis. Of the others seated at the bar, some were in to the game, and others were not.

Everyone was having an enjoyable time , in their own way. It was all good.

Ahhh, that explains the comment that the game is on Sunday.

The Packers play the Niners on Saturday, Jan 12th, 5:00 pm Pacific time.

I'm with jebett. GO NINERS!!!
