Someone suggested I check out Kauai Island Brewery and Grill on the West Side in Port Allen. Now I see why. It’s similar to some of the places I’m familiar with back in the South Bay such as Redondo Beach Brewing Co. and Brew Co. Manhattan Beach.
This place looks sort of industrial. I think they started as a brewery and later added the bar and grill. I didn’t try any of their house beers, but Ray had the Lilikoi Ale and loved it.
It would be fun to sit at the bar here, especially when Dodgers games are on. Did you know people back in Los Angeles have a harder time watching Dodgers games than we do in Hawaii? Something about a Time Warner deal. I’m not exactly sure. Anyway, I got to brag to some folks back in Los Angeles that I was watching Kershaw pitch.
The menu at Kauai Island Brewery and Grill has a good selection. Plus, there’s a board of specials that are great too. I got the garden island salad with grilled chicken. I love how all the field greens in the salads I’ve had on Kauai so far are locally sourced. This one included. Delicious!
Ray decided to try something from the specials board. He got a grilled mahi sandwich with papaya salsa and garlic fries. I didn’t get a picture.
Overall, I think this restaurant is just okay. I would come here again because the food is great and the bar has a fun atmosphere. However, I’m not used to swatting flies away from my food. I guess that’s something I have to get used to in Hawaii.
