    Great pizza, and awesome live Hawaiian music (we went around 7:30 on a Saturday night). Reasonably priced and a fine experience when you're sick of hotel dining and just want fun, casual dining.

    I never ever write reviews,Never find the time. But this place is unreal. Friendly staff. Cute waitresses and the REAL Hawaiian pizza(pulled pork and pineapple)is best I've ever had. Fire rock on tap

    ahi carpaccio is a huge serving, enough for dinner, really fresh. The mac-nut ono is slightly overcooked because it's baked at the end to solidify the mac-nut pesto. Better to just get a drink here

    Some of the weakest drinks I've ever had. The bartender was extremely short with us when we tried to order. If these are really the "best Mai Tais on the island" I would hate to try one elsewhere.

    Great pizza, okay service. Pizza took a good 45 minutes and our server didnt make it to our table too often, so we were waiting on refills for a while. The taste outweighed the service though!

    The capriccosa was ok. Mozzarella tasted like it was frozen. Grilled ahi was pretty good and so was the Mai Tai. Service sucked though. If you want an appetizer, specify that you want one!

    A fun bar in Kauai actually open late! Reasonably priced drinks and live music. Go and utilize sue's taxi company because Kauai roads are no joke.

    If you bump into the "Hanalei Boys" -- archeologists Doug & Trevor -- ask em about either the aha fields, or the swingers. Can't go wrong with either story.

    Sat down with a group of 9 people for dinner. wasn't busy, but looks like a place for locals. We got waters and a beer, but then no one talked to us for 15 minutes. We got up and left, no one cared
