We were there the night of their seafood buffet but we wanted something lighter and opted for Hamburgers at the bar. Nicely prepared and presentated

Menu was very limited and drinks were expensive (but that's what you expect at the Marriott). Service and drinks were good. I ordered the pork wrap and I was disappointed.

The grill which serves the pool area is limited with menu choices. Burgers were tasty and accompanied by lettuce, tomato, and a bag of chips(?). The Greek salad was OK and the other meals looked well prepared. a decent stand in for a meal between breakfast/dinner. There is a sitting area to eat or there are servers that will come... More

Located between the pool and the ocean, you can enjoy a wonderful lunch with new friends, watch a sports event or immerse yourself in the beautiful scenery.

We ate here 3 or 4 times during our stay at the Kauai Marriott. The wait staff were always very friendly. The menu is not massive but it's more than adequate and all the food we ate was delicious. The cocktails are well made but do come at the usual expensive resort price.

Kids meals were the best....enjoyed the bartender! Basic selection of sandwiches, salads. Most of the wait staff were friendly except for one particular employee who clearly did not present with a likeable demeanor.

At poolside at the Marriott Kauai. Nothing wrong with it but no imagination. Burgers, wraps, salads all served with chips. Active bar scene with specialty drinks. Attentive waitstaff at the pool. $$$

We came over from the Marriott pool (where we were staying) and had a quick lunch before heading back to the pool. We both ordered the BLT roll-up and an order of tater tots. They forgot about the tater tots so we had to have her come back and order them, but we were on vacation and she came back... More
