Since Kalaheo Steak and Ribs opened they have grown roots in the community offering something for everyone from the menu to having a special event. The dining room seating is comfortable and air conditioned! The bar is small so they expanded to the other side of the restaurant and opened a room that is called the "saloon" but really it... More

I'm a little confused. I came on here to write a review (which I usually don't do but I had the BEST experience!) and I see several reviews that look like the same person wrote them. I actually had quite a different experience... This restaurant was recommended to me by people I met by the pool at Prince Kuhio condos.... More

This a a surprising little find in the middle of Kalaheo which doesn't have much in the way of dining. The fish of the day was Ono (served everywhere on the island) and cooked to perfection. This place is good for both couples and family and the service was excellent. It's a nice place to unwind after a long day... More

We had dinner with friends tonight at the Kalaheo Steak and Ribs restaurant. It was a fantastic experience beginning with the warm, friendly greeting at the door, excellent service from our waitress, and then the fantastic food. The quality of each of the entrees was excellent and the portion size was generous. The atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly -... More

This restaurant is on a side street off the main highway and we could have easily missed it! We liked the rustic atmosphere--it's nicer on the inside than it looks on the outside! My husband ordered the hamburger (he described it as having everything but sparklers!) and found it to be huge and delicious--he couldn't finish it! It was served... More

It was nice to find a steakhouse that reminds you of home. BUT, although the steak was good, the portions of the side dishes (french cut green beans and baked potato) were EXTREMELY small. The salad was so small as to be embarrassing - - it looked like the leftovers from someone else's dinner. They would have been better off... More

From the moment we walked in the door, this felt like a restaurant that cares....a cocktail at the Bar was generous, service was prompt, and this was possibly the BEST filet mignon I've ever had.....with the owner apologizing for the price which was considerably less than we've paid for much less in quality. Also, a very passable wine selection? Would... More
