Second visit in the last few months. The first visit my Kalua Loco Moco was very tasty and my husband liked his breakfast sandwich too. Pork was a little crispy at edges, rice was sticky and good gravy. Perfectly cooked eggs and good coffee. Prompt and friendly service. Prices not bad. Came back for the Kalua Pork Loco Moco and...

Recommended by a shop owner on Kauai, so we went. Small place in the Safeway shopping area. Easy parking. Kids welcome. Typical bar food but a step above the average. No liquor license the first two times we went. Got it back the last visit. Large platters of food. Onion Rings - something different - VERY good.

Great food and place to watch world series. They have 5 big screens. My wife and I of typically split an order of chicken wings and a French dip with fries. They have large plates. We go on Wednesdays because of Shannon.

Not sure what happened at the 9th Island but they had no liquor license when we were on Kauai. Fortunately they allow you to bring your own alcohol and there is a fully stocked ABC store next door. The 9th Island was recommended to us by someone at our hotel because we were looking for somewhere to watch football on... More

Well we went to watch the game. The BYOB took us by surprise but whatever. Food was ok...nothing that made us want to go again. Place wasn't as clean as you would expect from a restaurant but I grew up in a place where some of the best food came from places like that. The only concern we had was... More

Had breakfast twice in this nice little sports bar in Kapaa Safeway shopping center. Unfortunately they have temporarily lost their liquor license but obviously hasn't deterred their customers. All tables full on football Sunday with most patrons bringing their own alcohol and having mixers from the bar. Many televisions. Food was excellent esp the French toast! Clean and friendly. Highly... More

This restaurant seemed pretty new as they were BYOB seemingly waiting for a liquor license. Food was good. They didn't come back for drink refills. Unfortunately there were some "unsavory" looking guys hanging outside in the parking lot and I was not comfortable after dark.

We were a Party of 12; 7 adults, 5 teens. Looked like a place for a quick lunch. The menu worked for everyone and the food was hot and good. They serve Breakfast 7 days a week, the menu looked good but had no time to try. FYI they had their Liquor Licence Suspended and are BYOB. Hopefully expecting it... More
