We had lunch here to check it out and see if it was somewhere we wanted to be to watch the Superbowl. It is very popular with the locals. We found it to be a typical bar with typical bar food and drinks. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't the sort of place we fly to Hawaii to frequent.

Thanks to Dusty, aka Dusty Springfield, we had a great meal. She answered all our questions and was helpful where necessary. For a group of vegetarians the food was just what we wanted!

Had a delicious breakfast here and came back for a beer a few days later. Friendly service and a very neat open air setting with a view of the ocean.

One of best happy hours in Poipu! We usually go to happy hour 3 to 4 times while we vacation. Awesome portions along with yummy Mai Tia's! I defiantly recommend going for happy hour!

They have a nice menu with local fresh produce, fish and beef. The waitresses were pleasant but overwhelmed by the influx of customers. The live Hawaiian music was beautiful to listen to.
