What I really liked about Kalapaki Joe’s is that is was not touristy. The atmosphere is like a sports bar and it was filled with locals when we were there. They have a decent selection of taps plus the food & service were good.

While I was only expecting some happy hour umbrella drinks, this place was pretty impressive. Not many taps, but possibly the longest beer list on the island. It was not cheap, but my ’value’ score is based on Kauai prices. Amazing view of the beach. Also, if you love PPV UFC, you will love this place.
While you should be drinking rum based drinks out of a tiki-head glass with an umbrella sticking out the top, if you need a beer and want something other than Steinlager or Heineken (seems like the local favorites), this is a great place.
