I give this restaurant 1 / 5 only because our server was good, friendly and professional. The patio overlooks a parking lot, so the fumes of exhaust are all you smell. The dinner menu has a very small selection (we should've got up and left when we saw the menu) for $100 US, I had a very dried out piece... More

This area of Kauai needs a total make-over. The restaurants hire unpleasant people to act as their representatives. The only exception is the Marriott property restaurants. The first greeting from the waitress was its against the law to bring in outside cups. We had just come from the beach and we had our souvenir cups from a nearby hotel. We... More

Came in with my daughter and was told by the owner in his shmedium shirt we couldn't sit at the bar.... I told him I was in the industry on the island and had to read the rules and regulations of the law because I'm a bartender. He told me "you're wrong, I'm the only person on this island who... More

The place was quiet lucky for me as my server was very attentive and explained the menu with suggestions. The food was good and well prepared.

Just had a less than expected experience at JJ's. First, we were served two orders that were not ours. When we pointed this out, there was some confusion and then, almost like it was a joke, they said the meals were for another table. They then served those meals to another table. We waited for our meals and when one... More

We went to JJ's for lunch and dinner several times while we visited Kauai. The food is great, my cob salad with warm papaya dressing was huge and very good. My husband got one of the burgers and it was cooked to perfection. This is a great restaurant, the food is well priced, fast and friendly service and the view... More

We ate here after a week on the island, but we wish we had picked a different place for our last night and meal on the island. The view is great and the atmosphere is very casual/sporty and family friendly. The menu seemed a little pricey for the food we ended up with. After eating seafood for most of the... More

This restaurant was walking distance from our hotel. We both had the salmon, which was supposed to be only on the early dinner menu, but the owner accommodated us and the food and service were excellent and reasonably priced. Good choice for dinner
