Pizzetta is your run-of-the-mill pizza joint in Old Koloa Town. They serve a variety of pizzas and pastas and do a good job of it. It’s a family restaurant and they cater to people with children but there is also a full bar for the adults. The service is friendly and the food is good. It’s a nice, affordable alternative for a family dinner out and away from the resorts. Work off your pizza with a walk through town after dinner.

The Koloa Fish Market is a great place to go to grab some fresh fish. If you’re staying in a vacation rental or something with kitchen facilities and you want to cook up a meal of fresh island fish go here to grab your supplies. They also serve fantastic hot lunch plates and will cook up the fresh fish right there for you if you’re looking for a ready-made bite to eat. Another plus is a variety of fresh poke to choose from at reasonable prices. All the fish is fresh caught in the islands so the selection changes daily. At the very least stop by for some poke. You won’t be disappointed!
Favorite Dish: Come here for the fresh seafood, of course. Try any or all of the several varieties of poke. And if you want a prepared meal try one of their lunch plates - you can't go wrong with anything here!

Tomkats Grill is an affordable dining option in Koloa. It’s located in the heart of Koloa town and the small open-air dining room looks out onto a garden. It’s definitely a casual, rustic restaurant. The food isn’t the best but it’s cheap. Tomkats is owned and operated by a nice couple, but it’s usually just them on the floor and a cook behind the grill so service can be uneven and slow, but always friendly. I’d recommend it more for Happy Hour drinks at the bar or for drinks after dinner than for dining. Every night they have drink specials and different happening at the bar (like Karaoke night) but I can’t imagine they draw a huge crowd in this sleepy little town. It is definitely a more casual and younger bar option than Stevenson’s Library or Roy’s.
Favorite Dish: The food is your standard bar food, salads, nachos, all things fried and like I mentioned the food’s not great but the drinks are good!

Roy’s is a Hawaiian institution, and if you’re going to eat at a Roy’s there’s no better place than in Hawaii. Known for gourmet fish and great tropical drinks, you can find celeb chef Roy Yamaguchi’s signature restaurants all over the United States and in Japan and Guam but the concept was born here in Hawaii. The cuisine is Hawaiian fusion blending flavors from the islands with European concepts and techniques. The food here is delicious and definitely worth a taste. The website below will give you more information on the cuisine, locations and Roy himself and will even allow you to make reservations for locations on the mainland but not on the islands because the restaurants on the mainland are only partially owned by Roy while the restaurants throughout Hawaii are completely under Roy’s ownership and control.
Favorite Dish: You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu here but I HIGHLY recommend the fish two ways. This isn’t the real name of the entrée on the menu but it’s basically two pieces of fish (the fish changes depending on what’s fresh) one type of fish is macadamia crusted and the other is prepared a different way. Two different types of fish prepared two different ways and it’s amazing! Also if you’re dining with others the appetizer “boat” is a great way to sample a variety of the tasty apps with the entire table.

THE POIPU BEACH BROILER is a dining highlight on the GARDEN ISLAND of Kaua'i. Go to old
Koloa Town and then to the Sunny South Shore at Poipu. There you'll find ampel parking at the P.B. Broiler...big shade trees, Handicapped Access.
My daughter and I went there for dinner twice during her much to short stay on the island. The food was absolutely GREAT and abundant. Full bar, too ! The Aloha from the owners and wait staff flowed like the gentle trade winds throughout the restaurant. And the prices were about like mainland prices, very reasonable.
Favorite Dish: Without doubt, my daughter's and my favorite dinner was the prime rib of beef...thick cut and cooked to your order. Ummm, Ummm. Not to mention the "right off the boat" Mahi Mahi. It's all fantastic. :o)

This was one of our stops on our bus tour of the island. Lunch wasnt included, and ironically, the bus driving chose where we were to eat. Well, this place was pretty good. I played it safe and had a cheese burger. It didnt come with fries, but it was tasty.
Favorite Dish: I had a burger and a sprite

If you need groceries while you’re in Koloa or Poipu you have a couple options. Big Save is the largest grocery store in town. They have a wide selection and here you’ll find most anything you’d need n the mainland. They have a full liquor department as well as prepared foods in the deli area. Their prices are reasonable, but remember, since you’re on an island prices will be higher here than at home.
What to buy: I highly recommend a trip to the prepared foods counter while you’re here. They have a great selection of poke and other Asian and Hawaiian specialties that are delicious. It might not look like much but it’s delicious and worth it.

I just loved this old sugar plantation on the road out to Poip’u. I thought it had some great character. But then again, I tend to find a certain beauty in old buildings and run-down barns. They’ve always intrigued me so why should this old sugar plantation be any different. One afternoon, during a break in the rains, we pulled off the main road and drove up to the plantation gates so I could take a couple pictures. When I returned home I did a little research on the place. It was once home to the Koloa Sugar Company but is now abandoned. The mill was constructed in 1836 and remained operational until 1996.
Take Highway 530 (Kaloa Road) after Mile Marker #11. Near the town of Koloa, turn right on Weliweli Road which ends at the Koloa Sugar Mill.

Built in 1841, St. Raphael’s is the oldest Catholic Church on the island of Kauai. Some of the original structure remains on the property as well as the old cemetery. A new church has been constructed on the site and is in use for religious services. But even if you’re not Catholic, it’s an interesting detour, if you’re in the area, to check out the original structure and the old headstones. It’s not something I would go out of my way to see, but as a photographer I enjoyed the short diversion off the beaten path.
