We return to Poipu every year for 3 to 4 weeks. Merriman's is consistently the one restaurant that we visit multiple times during our stay. The views from the lanai and form much of the inside of the restaurant are beautiful. The food is consistently exceptional, ther service has always been very good, and they have a nice wine list...

We ate in the bar/restaurant downstairs. Service was quick and friendly. Food was on par with many other local eateries. Prices were...well, $7.95 for a small portion of flavored fries.

Went there our last night on Kauai - the night after a Tropical Storm Iselle hit Kauai with heavy rain. We had reservations and had requested a view table for our anniversary- the table was perfect with a view across to the ocean. Sunset was bright red, a little diminished by lingering clouds but still beautiful. Immediately after being seated,... More

My family had an excellent meal here in 8/2014. We all had different fish dishes and were universally pleased. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly and appropriately attentive. They have a very good wine list with some unique and relatively reasonably priced options. Beautiful view before dark as well. Definitely recommend.

Our extended family of 5 recently had a wonderful dining experience at Merriman's Fish House in Poipu--in spite of the fact that it was the night of August 8th when the predicted rain from tropical storm Iselle had already begun to fall. We had requested veranda/balcony seating outside, and it was terrific--complete with a view of the countryside and the... More

After splurging at a few 1st class destination restaurants, we were looking for something simple and quick. Merriman's fit the bill. Visiting here mid-week at 8:00 pm, we had our choice of tables in the restaurant but opted for the patio to enjoy the warm Kauai night. There was no wait for the table and our server was prompt and... More

The burgers were good but the ( ok, we broke down and had fries ) parmesan truffle fries were just ok. Tasted like fries with some parmesan very lightly sprinkled on. Our server, a young man who moved over from CA, was super nice. Would eat there again.

We made a reservation and I think we could have walked in and be seated. The water view is distantly viewed from the restaurant. We were seated inside, the views are probably better from the porch. Dinner itself was good, and service was prompt as well.

We made reservations a few hours before because they were one of only a few places open during the storm warning and somehow we got the best table with vast view of south shore and sunset. The mongchong was delicious and the Ono was divine. The pu pu platter was ok but a bit too spicy sauce on the pork... More

This restaurant is a mile or so from the shoreline, but offers excellent sunset views of the ocean and island interior. The menu is sufficiently varied and the staff are GF savy! Our waiter was even a native of Kauai. A bit upscale in atmosphere and ambiance, as reflected in the prices, but all in all, a very good evening... More
