Best Happy Hour in town - $5 drinks (well poured) and large! $1 tempura shrimp, $0.25 wings and $3 fish tacos. Hint - order and pay for a side of the chipotle aioli for the tacos - Delicious! We have done this happy hour as dinner or a pre dinner appetizer and drinks. And you can't beat seeing the ocean... More

We were looking for a good Mai Tai. This was recommended by our concierge, and we were pleasantly surprised. It is a sports bar, but the happy hour and mai tais were substantial and pretty darn good.

I was looking for a pub- like atmosphere that was mainly locals. I was directed to this place and was immediately welcomed and shown several menus that were quite extensive. Plenty of choices for all. It happened to be Happy Hour and the prices were incredibly good for the size of the appetizers. I tried several and everything was great!... More

We went during happy hour. Great sports bar and waitress was great so she gets two stars. Happy hour food was horrid. Wings were gross. Shrimp was awful. Fish tacos super bland. Worst meal on the island.

We stopped here for quick bite to eat after arriving on the island before checking into the hotel. This place has an extensive menu that provide various choices and has a large selection of tvs to watch for sports. The food was ok, I ordered the Carne Asada plate but the meat did not have much taste in my opinion.... More

We tried Kalapaki Joe's for dinner and then came back a few days later for Happy Hour. The wings were amazing (and this from a Buffalo girl). Very crispy. Sauce on the side. We had a Cobb salad and the carnitas tacos - both were excellent. The 9 year old enjoyed her pasta and the chocolate brownie dessert (big enough... More

Your typical sports bar with TVs, beer and bar food. It's definitely a good place to watch a game. The beer is great and the food is average. I did enjoy the chicken wings and the nachos. The service was a little slow and nonchalant. There is a good happy hour with good specials.
