Paddler’s Inn Cuts Back
While Paddler’s Inn has been facing some challenges lately, the staff hasn’t let that keep them down. In order to keep operating while they await a permanent liquor license, the restaurant has had to cut back on their hours.
“We want to say thank you to everyone who has been supporting us,” said bar manager Mike said. “We really do appreciate it, [cutting back] is just something we have to do to stay open.”
The restaurant is currently open for breakfast and lunch every day, and will only be open for dinner on Mondays and Thursdays.
Helm, kitchen manager Kamuela Purdy, and dining room manager Curtis Akiona said the restaurant will be open full force as soon as the permanent liquor license comes through.
“We have the greatest chance to do good, in the five years since I’ve been here,” Helm said of the Molokai-run restaurant and soon-to-be bar.
Helm added it is promising the license will come in November – surrounding businesses have until Nov. 10 to respond to the mandatory letter sent out, announcing Paddler’s intention to sell alcohol.
