Ate afternoon meal. Outside eating under an awning. Long wait for meal. Waitress shrugged off my concern about flies on my food.

My husband and I went to Paddler's Inn just before Christmas and we really enjoyed the ambiance and friendliness of Paddler's Inn. The happy hour prices for their beers is great and the food, while your standard sports bar fare, was really good. We had the burger special (2 for 1) and it was very big and very tasty. It... More

We needed a quick bite before our flight to Maui. We shared a hamburger and a beer. Service was friendly just like everywhere in Molokai

We stopped in at Paddler's Inn after other island activities on three afternoons. It appears to be a place where locals drop in for a drink. They tend to hang out at the bar itself, while tourists sit at one of the many tables scattered under the hut. There's a large projector TV that was showing football on the weekends... More

We had New Years Eve dinner here. The band was good. My food was good, but my husbands wasn't. It took a very long time to get our order. Not the place to go if your in a hurry to eat.

This is a great place to get fast food to fill you up. The beer was cold, and the food was plentiful. The prices were good, because we stuck to the specials! The ladies in the kitchen were so sweet and attentive, and the bartenders were very friendly.

When visiting Molokai be aware that there aren't many restaurants. And this is it primarily. No A/C as you are virtually outside with only a roof and half walls. It is the only bar on the island as they are the only ones w/a liquor license. Food is just ok, but better than the burger or pizza joint which are... More

We went for some Sunday afternoon local Hawaiian music and a couple of beers with our pupus. Very laid back setting with good music, tasty food, and friendly (but not too attentive) service folks.
