We had found this local pub the last time we came to Kauai. Better than we remembered, cold beer, good selection of food items and 1/2 off during happy hour. Had to return for another visit. Plenty of TVs for viewing your favorite sport.

Went here with my family as we were passing through Lihue. It is a typical sports bar, but everyone in my party liked their meals. In particular, the fish and chips and chile peppah chicken were great. We had good service, and the prices were typical of restaurants in Kauai. I would return.

I enjoyed this food. The burger was real beef with lots of available toppings and cooked the way that you liked it. All appetizers are 1/2 price between 3-5 PM and that list is extensive. Their chili nachos is good and filling. Nice atmosphere and servers are friendly. Definitely worth a trip to while on the island.

Went here on a Friday evening during our vacation on Kauai, mostly because I was familiar with Aldrine Guerrero from Ukulele Underground and knew he was going to be playing there. It's a sports bar, the crowd seemed like mostly locals. There's not a big area for the entertainers (basically a corner where they sort of tuck themselves), but Aldrine... More

After our kayaking/hiking tour with Ali'i Kayaks (read my previous review on them), on TC's (our Ali'i Kayaks guide) recommendation, we stopped by Rob's Good Times Grill. The service was friendly, the pupus (appetizers) were half off, and the food was yummy. We ate the ribs off the pupus menu, the fried calamari was to die for, and the garlic... More

We stopped here for a quick beer and appetizer. The bartender was really sweet and made several local recommendations. The calamari is excellent! It looks sketchy from the outside but inside is a locals paradise. Great happy hour deals to take advantage of and would go back!

Stopped in here for Happy Hour a couple of times. Nothing fancy but seems quite popular with locals. Currently all appetizers are half price starting, I believe, at 3pm. That draws a crowd and on one of our visits we enjoyed a combo plate appetizer which ended up being our dinner. Service is prompt and very friendly.

This is really just a sports bar, but the food was quite good and the wait staff friendly. Thursday night is trivia night, so get there early if you want a seat.

We discovered this mostly locals bar/restaurant on our last visit to Kauai. A girl we met recommend that we go there to hear a local ukulele musician. He was amazing. The food is fantastic and affordable by Kauai standards. The tempura ahi bites are our favorite. Watching game 7 of the NBA finals. Lots of locals and vacationers here rooting... More
