This was a total drop-in, early dinner our first night in Kauai. We missed lunch traveling, so stopped in here for a quick bite around 5:30p. It's got a casual vibe, but the food is surprisingly good -- this was one of my favorite meals...More

Sorry but we had a great dinner last night but our waiter, Aaron, was horrible. The worst waiter we had during our 2 weeks in Kauai. He was just not interested in -- asking if you wanted another drink? how was our meal? would you...More

Great bar/restaurant at the Sheraton. Food is better than bar quality. Not surprising since the menu is designed by the same chef who does RumFire. Staff is attentive, bartenders are friendly and the managers are great. Making sure to stop by to see how your...More

we ate here only once, were not too impressed with the food. the prices are rather high so if you eat there daily is going to run you up a large bill. The good part it has a nice view.

I loved the entertainment. The portions I had were large and there were special prices at times, though regular prices were a bit high.

Food is a bit overpriced but decent deals at happy hour for a resort hotel. Craft beer was $4, fancy drinks 8-9 bucks.

As you walk from the beach or pool you enter this peaceful restaurant with Hawaiian music playing and you think "this looks awesome," looks can be deceiving. The food wasn't very good since the majority of the menu was fried food. The service was also...More
