You wouldn't know if from the outside, but this this spot has the best food we've found on the Island in 9 months. Great prime rib. Excellent bands. Cool local vibe. Chilled people. Highly recommended.

Ahi Pok Nachos were different. Wanted to try on the advice of a friend. Wonton chips tasted burnt. Ono fish sandwich was over cooked and dry. Fries were great and the beer was cold. Service was slow but they were busy when we got there.

Simple food. Great taste. Ahi Poke Nachos is a MUST. Try it. You wont regret it. Waitresses were very friendly and food was fast. It's also a bar but its not a dark bar. Very well lit with glass walls to let light in.

KP is a great place to meet the locals. It has undergone a little bit of renovations (could use some more but then it might lose its "charm") but what it lacks in ambiance it makes up with the food. Prime rib is awesome. Taco...More
