Good food, excellent view.

The food and service was good. The view was excellent. I think the menu could have more choices. The pricing was moderate.

a lot of the locals recommended this place but we were very disappointed in the entrees and the salad bar is poor, even though that is what people mention when they recommend it. Our dinner waitress was great, but the waitress at the bar was sarcastic and grumpy.

We have been going to the Bull Shed while vacationing on Kauai for over 30 Years (our daughters grew up going here and they still Love, Love, Love it too). The restaurant has been nicely remodeled with the beautiful ocean front dining view not being compromised. The Bull Shed cut of prime rib is huge and always tasty. They still... More

Hadn't been there in YEARS, but it is still as excellent as ever. Remolded, so it's even nicer. Joked and told the waitress that it lost its "shed" ambiance. LOL! Service was spot on and the food was amazing! Husband's lamb and my steak was cooked perfectly! Daughter's shrimp and chicken were also perfect. We all ate everything off our... More

We enjoyed wonderful steak and a view that was remarkable while dining at the Bull Shed. It was one of the best places for a steak on the island.

The Bull Shed has reasonably priced meals and some of the seating has a nice view of the ocean as the restaurant is located right on the beachfront. The service was good and efficient. Entrees come with the salad bar so we ordered one dinner and one salad bar. The 2 teriyaki chicken breasts as an entree (which we split)... More

The view is very nice, try and get a table by the window which out over the ocean. The salad bar was "ok", the prime rib was very good. Kelly, our server was outstanding.

Our experience at the Bull Shed was pretty good. View of Pacific right out our window. Salad bar a little sparse, but my fish and wife's steak were both good.

This is just a regular bar. No outside seating. All inside with large windows to look out at the ocean, but not much Aloha décor. And the host that greeting us wasn't very bright. We'd ask him questions and he didn't have a clue about other sights around us.
