Was there last night. One person in our group did not even get deserved until the rest were finished eating. My meal was too salty to eat. Service was slow and poor.

Great service, local craft beers on tap, and excellent food. The restaurant is reasonably priced for the quality of the meals. I would definitely go again.

Good service, reasonable prices, nice variety on the menu. We had the aloha burger and it was very filling and quite delicious. No room for dessert. Our waitress was helpful with the menu as well as providing some tourist information. We would recommend this restaurant.

We had a wonderful meal (planked salmon) and listened to wonderful music on a Wednesday evening at Kiju's. The food is so tasty, plate presentation is excellent and ingredients locally sourced. Highly recommend.

Also a local recommendation. The food was good but not outstanding, especially for the prices. The service was excellent and the local beers were awesome. Good for a one time experience.

We are staying at the Hampton Inn which is beside the restaurant and are joined by a glass bridge. (You also get 10% off if you are staying at the hotel.). Anyways, the decor is really nice - very classy. The wait staff was very...More
