Reviews were mixed for this place and we were initially unsure. Unfortunately in Hanalei, most of the highly rated places to eat are food trucks, and we were not really in the mood for that so we decided on Kalypso Bar and Grill. It turned out to be a very good experience. We sat outside, which is really pleasant.
Service was a bit slow to take our drink order, and then a really long time to actually receive our beers. The wife got the Bourbon stout and I got the Big Swell IPA. Both are $6 for a pint and really tasty during non-happy hour.
For lunch, the wife got the Kalypso burger and I went with the Spicy BBQ burger. The cows are grass fed and you can taste the difference. Both burgers were very tasty. Mine was a mess to eat but I really enjoyed the mixture of spicy jalapeños and sweet BBQ sauce. Be sure to get extra napkins! Really good burger. Cooked to medium exactly as I requested.
Overall, we were happy with our choice. Aside from slow service it was a good place. But our server Renie was friendly and helpful and we are on vacation so slow service is probably a benefit.
