We were touring the south side of Kauai and found KJ's by chance as we drove along the beach road. We have a KJ's near our resort in Lihue but had not eaten their yet. This place is overlooking the tennis courts and has a...More

The best hamburger in Poipu, including Bubbas and just as good as the Kauai Brewing Company's. A sports bar with a view and pretty decent food and a good place for lunch. Ditto on the Nawiliwili branch.

We visited two of three Joe's.... Both were great. We liked the atmosphere better in Waimea, the server indicated it used to be a brew pub.... The one in Poipu is more "sports bar". Poke with fresh ahi and avocado was excellent as was the...More

If you've ever been to a Coyote Ugly bar, you know that the place is completely run by attractive women. To me, this is Kauai's version of Coyote Ugly.This entire place is run by some of the most hottest chicks on the island! No joke!...More

We think that they have the best happy hour in Poipu. Good selection of beers on tap and great Mai Tai’s. Didn’t care for the “fresh-made” guacamole…didn’t have much flavor. The happy hour fish tacos (mahi mahi) and chicken wings were yummy! We'll be back!

Stopped in for a quick beer one evening. The selection on tap was nice and the prices were surprisingly affordable for Kauai. The staff was friendly enough. I'll have to try the food next time.

If you're a fan of chain, sports bar style restaurants like Applebee's, you'll probably find something to like about Kalapacki Joe's. The TVs almost outnumber the patrons so you're sure to find a game on you want to watch. About half the tables are open-air...More

Nice view if you sit at the window, a good selection of beers for a good deal during happy hour but otherwise lousy due to uninspired service at best and plain old bad food. Having eaten there in the past I know better than to...More
