Had dinner. Food was good. Salad bar was average, could use a bit more choice, but it was nice to have as most places don't. Must be good in general as about 50% of the customers were locals! Always a good sign in my book.

The food is great and sat next to a window that looked out on the ocean. Since I was celebrating my birthday, I also got a hot-fudge sundae and very tasty. The only thing is that it's very hard to find the restaurant, especially at night. They need better signs on the building. Other than that, the food and service... More

Ask for window table. It's open to the ocean. I had the fillet minion and was the best meal of my stay. Nice salad bar. Don't let the fact that it's attached to an old motel deter you, it's right on the ocean and really a treat.

The Bull Shed's salad bar and fresh fish along with their red meat options give us an enjoyable place to take guests.

The Bull Shed has been a favorite of ours for perhaps 20 years, right at the water's edge in Waipouli and noted for great meat and a terrific salad bar. But 2014 has taken a big turn for the worse -- new owners jacking up the prices, changing the menu (any reasonable specials are gone) and reducing portion size. Only... More

If you're on vacation, chances are you're here for at least a week and needing to experience different locations to eat. We came to Bull Shed and enjoyed it. Was it absolutely the greatest, no. The views are wonderful, the service was ok. I think it's the duty of a restaurant server to make your experience worthy of the fact... More

Great food, service and quality. We've come here on several trips and have never been happier with their food and service. That is something that can't be said of many pretentious "up-scale" dinner places here on Kauai. Their prices are still fairly reasonable in the $20-$35 a plate range. Get there early and ask for a window seat where you... More

The Bull Shed came highly recommended by a worker at one of the local spas, so I was excited to try it out. What a letdown. The filet mignon was all right and the baked potato was all right, and the tiny salad bar left something to be desired. If only the good had matched the outstanding service I received.... More

This place has been here forever. I had dinner here 30 years ago when it was The Place to eat on Kauai. The view is stunning and the restaurant is clean and modern. We had appetizers and drinks and it was just ok. We looked at the menu and for those prices there are several really good restaurants on island.... More

We tried this place for two reasons...one, it was suggested by a local on one of our tours and two, it was literally next door to where we stayed. Don't let the outside fool you...its a little old looking. The inside is much nicer. you MUST get a table near the window. OMG the views are incredible and the breeze... More
