They forget you once you order, but the food is not bad - a step below a Denny's. For Kauai, it's certainly affordable. They brought my wife the wrong toast, let the waters go unfilled for a long time, and the Hollandaise sauce was just...More

All shave ice is good. You got to do something special to stand out and Ono Stands out from the crowd. We were just blown away with the colors and fantastic flavor as we enjoyed our refreshing taste sensation of Ono Shave Ice

We were Ignored. Didn't take my husband's order except as a side thought. Waitress needs to learn how to be a human being or read a self help book. We got up and left after paying for their overpriced OJ ($3.25). On the way out...More

A fabulous family restaurant on the main drag (is there any other) in Kapaa, that is very popular but manages to keep up with the crowds and still serve wonderful food for good prices. You can eat indoors or outside too!

The shave ice was very disappointing. Nice size, lots of ice cream but very little syrup. The syrup did not even reach the ice cream. More disappointing than the actual shave ice was the very poor attitude of the server. She just seemed annoyed to...More

Forgot about the second question. I cannot say for absolute certain ( I have only been going there since 1996), but I think that there was a menu item called deuces wild, which was 2 eggs, 2 pancakes, 2 bacon or sausage... More
