We ate here after we checked out of the hotel on the way to the airport. We ordered chicken strips, quesadilla, hot dog, taco's and all liked their selections. The food was good and served pool side. The waitress was fast (considering pool side), friendly, and accurate. Nice view and good food.

They were backed up because the serve the entire pool area. The waitress was great; she made sure our water was filled and... More

Drinks were very good, even at happy hour! Sandwiches were tasty. No watered down drinks and it was a pleasant atmosphere.

Stopped by the grill which is poolside at the Marriott, and the drinks and food were ok, I had a BLT wrapped roll and my companion had a hot dog with a side order of onion rings. Service was good, food was OK. I guess since we were on the Garden Island I'd expected something local and fresh, or even... More

Since the beach at the Kauai Marriott is public, anyone can come and then eat at this grill. They will serve you food at the beach as well. This is a basic pool bar menu with lots of good Hawaiian cocktails, sandwiches and salads. The service is always great and the prices are average for the area.

Good food and drink options. A little pricey but it's in the resort, so that's expected. The service was great. The waitresses are very attentive pool side so you don't even need to go sit at the bar or tables around the bar. They come right to you as you are lounging by the pool. Can't beat that service!

For poolside food, it's pretty average food for what you get at most similar hotels. Burgers, fries...standard fare. What's missing are nachos.

We stayed at the Marriott for a week, so we had lunch here several times, and drinks most every day. While lunch was good food at a good price, the drinks were great! The Nuka Lei Lei is awesome, so don't miss it! Great service from the very attentive hotel staff, too.
