Friday evening I decided a steak would be lovely for dinner, so I headed to The Bull Shed. This is situated on the property of Castle Mokihana where I was staying, and the smells drifting across the property were very enticing, and promised great dining experiences. This restaurant had great reviews, so I was expecting a real gastronomic treat. On... More

Old fashioned steak house, pretty basic menu with steaks and seafood. Priced from the low $20s up through the mid $40s to $50 for surf and turf. Nice oceanfront location with view but it isn't open air. All in all, nice salad bar and the steaks were good but prices are high, even for Hawaii.

First visit to the Bull Shed in over 30 years. Very enjoyable atmosphere with our table having a great view over looking the ocean. Some in our group had their specialty, prime rib; all enjoyed the meal. This looks to be a restaurant patronized by a lot of locals, which speaks well of them. I thought the prices were very...

A traveller staying at our resort recommended this local restaurant. It is off the main highway a block but tucked in along the coastline providing a great ocean view. With a name like Bull Shed I was a bit skeptical of what I may discover but to my family's surprise this hidden gem provided a great dinning experience. Portions were... More

One of our "local favorites" in Kauai. The seafood is very good. Always ask what steak specials they have that evening. We love to sit by the windows next to the ocean. When we travel to Kauai we always visit the Bull Shed at least twice.

We went here with a group of 14 people. The service was great everyone was working hard to take care of our large group. The food was great! Large portions and the salad that came with the dinner was a build your own so that was perfect. We all enjoyed our food and the experience.

Want to hang out with the locals? Go here. When I realized the drinks were 50% less than the restaurant next door, that Hawaiian families were here, and the menu looked great I knew I'd found the right place. Right on the ocean!

Everyone seems to recommend the beef here , and I am sure it's pretty good. We had a couple of fish dinners here and they were top notch. Not over the top pretentious, just good well prepared tasty food. We had the fresh Ono and the scallops. Their salad bar is a nice touch. The good food is accompanied by... More

You really have to look to find this place. Don't try to find it yourself in the dark, ask for directions. It's a small out of the way place located right on the beach with the best steaks around. I love the filet & lobster but you will love any cut of meat here. If you are really hungry, get... More
