My husband and I are visiting Kauai for the first time, and wanted to go where the locals eat. The food was very good, prices are fair, and dessert is included with most meals. I got the teriyaki marinated chicken, and I would absolutely get it again. My husband got a mixed plate with BBQ ribs, fried chicken, and fried... More

I was staying at the nearby Palms Hotel and the clerk said this was a favorite of hers and her husband. I had the sampler plate which had a little bit of three kinds of meat. The dinner comes with soup or salad, sides, and dessert. Great desserts!

On most visits back to Kauai where we grew up, we make it a point to stop in for a meal or two. It is a long-time locals favorite with delicious meals at a reasonable price!!! Service is also great!!!

A family favorite each time we visit. Locally owned and operated for over 75 years. Always a tasty meal. No long waits for a table. Affordable. Friendly staff. Not a beautiful location but very pleasant meal.

We were looking for a local place for dinner on Kauai near the airport. Someone recommended this place as one where we'd find friendly service and great food. Right on the first point: the staff was very warm, welcoming and efficient. The food, however ... not so good. The fried chicken and shrimp were so overdone and hard as to... More

Got a little time between flights? Or tired of the typical resort restaurant fare? This restaurant has been in business for over 75 years. Friendly service and family owned. Guaranteed great meal!
