Great location

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.

We ate here for some beef and baked potatoes and salad bar. The salad bar is great with fresh lettuce and good selections. My teriyaki steak was delicious. Kids meals include steak kabobs and shrimp. Kids ate every bite. This restaurant has fabulous views of the ocean. It was reasonably priced for Kauai. The restaurant itself is basic and not... More

We saw the sign for Happy Hour (4:30-5:30) and decided to stop in. The vibe was really strange. The young hostess immediately started questioning us about whether we wanted to eat dinner. We weren't sure yet. We sat in the lounge; there were only 2 other tables. The waitress seemed a bit scatterbrained; she brought the good $5 mai tai's,... More

I went to the Bull Shed by myself, arriving 5 minutes after it opened in order to get a table next to a window with an ocean view. The hostess showed me to a table well away from the window. When I called her on it she gave me the usual spiel about reservations and distributing guests among the stations,... More

So close to the ocean a strong swell will push almost to the windows, or even past. The fish is well is prepared. The staff pleasant and efficient. The salad bar could be in the Midwest but the view and seafood sure we're not. Many locals and some tourists. We really liked it. Dinner with entrees, dessert and drinks came... More

We were told by two people the Bull Shed is where they go for birthdays and anniversaries. So, the first night on the island we went. To say we were floored, amazed and gobsmacked is an understatement. When someone says we celebrate our special days there one would assume some, at least gorgeous tropical flower arrangements. Paintings by local artists... More
