Loved the live music. Atmosphere was ok but a little too commercialized for my liking. Food was decent but we were eaten at life at sunset... the life music made up for it.

After having an ok dinner at another place, we decided to check in our hotel to see their recommendations. I usually avoid that since they send you to tourist traps, but I decided to risk it. This place was just down the road from my hotel. Atmosphere: The setting is nice, it's open air and although there is no beach... More

We've been to Keoki's many times over the years while vacationing and Kauai and have always looked forward to dinners there. Unfortunately our dinner the other night didn't hold up to past expectations. We waited just over 8 minutes after being seated to be greeted by someone with water. Another couple of minutes went by when our waiter finally greeted... More

This ia\s a good place for tourists on the south shore of Kauai. It would be good anywhere, but a must for people at Poipu. We walked in and said "good choice" since we had no idea where Yelp was sending us. Not super cheap unlike the $$ we were told. But each bite was good. Some inventive touches. Great... More

While the the restaurant may be in a parking lot on a street, it has well disguised and pleasant patio seating. The food was quite good. I had a three course meal of Thai shrimp skewers, panko-crusted ono and (for a small extra charge) massive hula pie, which I gave t my wife. She had the risotto and said it... More

If you love eating at Duke's in Lihue you will love Keoki's too. Same dinner menu. Fish is fabulous and hula pie for dessert is a must--it is huge so ask for spoons to share. I love to come here for fish tacos at lunch too. Popular with locals as well as tourists.

The meal was divine! The open air theme of the restaurant was a wonderful touch. Our server was great and had a good sense of humor.
