We went a few times for breakfast, and it was really good food. I had the huevos rancheros and it was delicious, and big portions. I'm a tea drinker and it's the first place I've been to that keeps re-filling your tea cup with actual...More

Our group of six had poor and slow service. Our waitress seemed to not be having the greatest day. In fact the hostess seemed to also not be thrilled to be at work that evening either. Our chips were stale and our entrees were just...More

Moose McGillucuddy’s is upstairs and Fred’s is downstairs. I’m not sure if they have two separate happy hours. I’m sure it would indicate on their website. The beach across the street is Kamaole II. Hope this helps.
