I don't normally write negative reviews. I usually stick with the motto, "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." In this case, I decided to say something, because there are some things we like about Kalapaki Joe's and hopefully they will make some changes to get the ratings up. Their beer list is the longest on... More

We stopped by this place to watch The Holiday Bowl. It was only about ¼ full, but service was very slow. The typical laissez faire approach to customer service was punctuated by the fact that the bar tender “called out sick”. When we finally got to order we found it odd that when our daughter said she just wanted a... More

Great happy hour! The drinks are large and the food is good. Has a sports bar kind of vibe. Two people can get away with about $20.00 for drinks and appitizers.

Stopped by for an appetizer, decided on Kalua pork nachos with a side of guacamole. They were huge with plenty of chips, pork, cheese, tomatoes, jalapeño peppers, refried beans & tasty guacamole, topped with sour cream. Fun, sporty atmosphere.

We were there for breakfast. The food was just ok (French toast was not good at all). The service was mixed. One ok waiter; one surly waitress. Super pricey for what you get. I would not return.

Great place to watch the games on Sunday. The beer is cold and delicious. The wait staff are all very friendly and know a lot about the beer selections too. Awesome happy hour specials and walking distance to lots of hotels!

While this isn't the vacation attraction place many are looking for, it is a good place for loud, busy, watching the games, and not spending a fortune on lunch or dinner. Service can be slow if its busy and on game nights it is always busy. Occasionally there is live music. Locals hang here so you know it is reasonable... More

We tried to eat here on a monday night, but football frenzy was in full force. So we came back on Tues night. I had the loco moco for dinner and breakfast, and lunch! It is huge! My husband had a burger and rings. The rings tasted like food service rings. The waitress seemed to be coving a large area... More

We ventured upto Kalapaki Joes for breakfast and an evening snack/beers. The atmosphere was good and the waitress kept up the icy cold water which was great. The breakfast were of a good size and I really enjoyed the way they served the warm Kale Salad (it was just right!) with my omelette. we also went there to see if... More

It's not gourmet food, but it's tasty, and they pour a stiff drink. Stop in for happy hour if you've been spending too much at the resorts. It also felt like mostly locals in there, but I'm not sure.
