Excellent food and service

First and foremost, the location of this restaurant is impeccable. It's right on the water and you can hear the waves lapping on the side of the building throughout dinner. Second, the food is absolutely incredible. I had surf and turf and it was all amazing. Finally, the service was great... read more

Ate the half rack of lamb and got projectile vomiting a few hours later. What a mess. Diarrhea runs the next two days. You're playing Russian roulette eating at this establishment. Don't take the chance. Plenty of safer places in Kapaa to eat.

We went for a late dinner, we had a skewer and tuna steak. Food was okish, not great but eatable but it was too expensive for the quality and taste.

The place is in the Mokihana Hotel and over looks the ocean! I had the prime rib! it was great! And I'm pretty shure they have live music on the weekends

This restaurant has great food, large portions, great service, high prices and a location on the beach in Kapaa closer to the water than any other on the island. A salad bar is a bonus that we enjoy. We live here and like an occasional meal with friends at the Bull Shed.

After years of going to Kauai and staying in Kapaa we finally tried the Bull Shed for my wife's birthday. It was great. Service was good, view is outstanding and our food was even better. The salad bSr was fine about what we have in Wisconsin. Drinks were good and priced reasonable. My wife had the catch of the day... More

The review in Kauai Revealed was bang on. The view is nice, however the restaurant is outdated. The quality of the food was very disappointing for the price we paid. The crab was overcooked, my steak was overcooked, the salad bar was less than average. I certainly expected more. The service was good, the staff were attentive.

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.
