We went to JJ's while staying at the Marriott Kauai Beach Club because it was within walking distance. It is in a good location with a nice ocean view. However, the patio is next to a busy parking lot so that distracts from the experience. Drinks were good and the food average. We would not go back there again.

We had a very good time at JJ's. The staff was very friendly, the atmosphere was great, the drinks were good, the food was excellent. We went back a second time we liked it so much. It's a lovely setting.

We are locals and stopped in for a light meal - the French onion soup was good; the crab cakes light on the crab and the Caesar salad covered in processed chicken - which was tasteless - my opinion is that you have to get the simple things right and this was wrong. With no drinks it was $50 gone... More

We ate dinner during our visit to Kauai at JJ's upon the recommendation of a local resident of the island. We asked for outside dining which had a magnificent view of a bay and were able to watch paddle boarders, surfers, and kayakers. I ordered the shrimp scampi and loved it!! I thought the mushrooms added a wonderful flavor. My... More

J.J’s Broiler is located in an interesting shopping center in Lihue, Kauai. The outdoor seating faces a popular beach with great views. We shared the Teri Beef Skewers appetizers followed by Trio Sliders, Shrimp Scampi, and the Slavonic Steak. Food was great! The Slavonic Steak is a Hawaiian specialty. It is a marinated filet mignon, seared and pan-fried. It is... More

The deck over looks Kalapaki Bay. The food is good the best offering are the fish tacos. The staff are friendly and attentive. Good bar food with fresh fish.

This place is deceptive, apparently a traditional sports bar at first glance, but venture farther inside and you'll find a patio with water view, an inviting menu, and surprisingly good food. We liked our dinner so much we returned for an encore two nights later.

My family stopped for dinner and the view and location are wonderful, but the food falls well below average. Average customer service. They took the meals off our tab, but we are leaving hungry.

It's pricey by mainland standards but pretty average prices by Hawaii standards. Food is worth the price both sandwiches and entrees are great. Drinks are well made. Highly recommend.

My husband and I lunched at this wonderful restaurant after spending time on the beautiful Kauai beach, during our Princess Cruise in January 2017. We both ordered fish and chips--no chips for me, rather a Caesars Salad--both large sizes and very, very delicious. Next, although being very full because of the generous quantity of our entrees, we could not resist... More
