Friendly service and excellent food. Great happy hour as well. The stuffed pork chop was amazing. It came with breakfast style potatoes, but were mixed with onions and peppers. Best pork chop meal I’ve ever had! Very reasonably priced as well. Would definitely recommend!

The four of us each had different entrees and enjoyed them all. My husband really enjoys the meatloaf as you can’t find that on many menus.

Just a so so experience. A little different feel than typical Hawaiian restaurant with more of a western/rodeo theme. Friendly staff but servers very was really really slow. Had one server taking care of everyone. Filet was good but not a lot of flavor. Ribs were tender but just a different flavor. I know everybody has different taste when it comes to ribs but these were not our style. Prices were reasonable but we’d probably not go back. All inside seating with no views.

Lots of locals eat here. The Service was simply excellent.
Would classify the food as American comfort food. Food was well prepared and tasty.

Prices were reasonable (for Kauai)

We're definitely going back

We had dinner T this restaurant a couple of weeks ago and had excellent food and service (Pops, our waiter was so good and friendly). Pops explained the specials and fish and at his digestion, my husband ordered Hebi and LOVED it. We went back again because my husband enjoyed the fish so much.

There is a very good variety including fresh fish (if the weather cooperates). The fresh fish and garlic mashed potatoes was good as was the chicken stir fry. The apple pie was warm and delicious.
Our waiter was very good but he was the only waiter! They could use another.

We go to Kauai every year and discovered this restaurant. We have always been treated well. We have tried the ribs and the prime rib. Both are excellent. The restaurant opens at 5pm and we recommend reservations. That can be made online. If you place your order before 6 pm,you receive a read pudding free. I love theirs. The atmosphere is country western.

Sat us right away. Waiter Clyde was great . Owner , Carolyn, greeted and showed us to our table. Food was delicious with generous portions. Steak melted in my mouth(filet mignon). Fish equally well prepared. Vegetables al dented with tasty sauce. Bread pudding desert ok not as good as I make. Plantation ice tea great drink. Go before 6 pm for $5 mai tai or margarita on the rocks. Highly recommend a blast from the past.

The lower level “Saloon” is booked weeks in advance. This is understandable given the fun and outstanding entertainment while you eat. Live bands are talented, engaging and inclusive of all guests. If you want a wonderful night out with good food and great entertainment the friendly owners, Caroline and Ernie, will ensure your visit is a memorable one.

Made a 6pm reservation only. Arrived on time. We were greeted & seated immediately. Happy hour drinks we’re awesome. Had Cesar salads, filet, prime rib, shared dessert & adult beverages for around $100. Service was awesome and we were back on the road to Princeville within an hour. Great place to go if you’re on the south side and craving a great steak dinner.

I have been going to this restaurant for over 20 years. It used to be great. Now the owners are trying to sell it, and seem to have lost interest in Customer service. While Ernie is friendly and seems to want things to run smoothly, no one else cares.
Recently went to an evening event that was overbooked, and since a featured event was happening in one area, the dining room went to hell.
Over 15 minutes to even see a waiter after a significant wait for a reserved table. Another 15 minutes to be asked for a drink order. Nearly 15 minutes for a drink. Finally, our orders were taken. Then, after about 30 minutes our food arrived, and 2 of 5 were incorrect.
People who came in after us were served, cashed out, and left before we did.
Final straw. Waiter took our bills and credit cards. Long wait after he disappeared with our chip cards.
Then he returned with our FULL CREDIT CARD numbers scrawled in pen on the receipts with the comment that the internet was down. ( during the 15 minutes he was gone, lots of chances to copy our numbers and ccv numbers. !). I tore the numbers off the receipts and scrambled for cash.

Dreadful and embarrassing experience, as I had invited friends.
NEVER going back. Really sad to see a fine business where people cared deteriorate into a money mill.
