We stopped in one afternoon on the way back to our condo for a few happy hour drinks and had such a good time it became "tradition". Friendly staff and good service. We had dinner there one night and stayed for the live music. Awesome time.

It was great to find an island restaurant and bar where you feel at home upon entering. The food choices were wonderful and offered the usual bar fare but also some unique twists on the regulars and some truly unique dishes. Returned here a few times during our vacation. Paddlers can also boast a strong commitment to the environment by... More

Paddlers Restaurant and Bar has been for sale for a number of years. It recently sold and all for the better. The bar and restaurant are open daily except Sunday, from 10:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M. for dining, although the bar closes later after the evening entertainment. It is now owned by a long-time local family that believes in quality... More

We have stopped in twice so far. They have a new chef who cooks up different specials every night that are reasonably priced. They also have music every night. Great spot.

Under new management with a new menu. I was hesitant to try the burger as under the old management it was more of a rubber puck to scoff down if one was hungry enough. To my surprise, it was the opposite of my expectations. What an awesome burger. It was juicy and fresh and for me was one of the... More

We were told the restaurant was under new management. We wanted to try food here as we'd already been to the local burger & pizza joint (not many places on Molokai). A semi-open air place, had a musician playing Hawaiian songs. Husband ordered a hamburger plate, French fries were an extra $3.00, for next to nothing (see pic). I ordered... More

Get serious! I realize all dining on this island is expensive, but this is ridiculous. If you go before 5pm you can't order dinner, just Pupus and hamburgers.
