This was our 4th visit to the Beach House and the food has remained excellent. The location makes it a great place to watch the sunset.

This is a great restaurant with unbeatable views - it's right on the beach!! Good food and good service. Great place for a sunset dinner as the sun sets over the ocean right in front of you. The only problem is if you want to get the sunset dinner you have to book weeks in advanced (they were booked for... More

From all the reviews I read about this place. I expected absolutely fantastic food and service. Didn't expect to have to pay to park. nor to have a bee/wasp sting my husband as he grabbed the railing into the restaurant. the view is spectacular. The food was only good.

This was our "splurge" meal during our Poipu stay. The view was excellent, although the sunset did not cooperate. The fish was very fresh, the portions adequate and the service acceptable. But the noise level was very high, which surprised us given how open the dining area is to the outdoors.

Went there for the third time, in four trips to Kauai. The service, food, and atmosphere are excellent! The best Mojito's ever :)

This restaurant is "pure Kauai"... For more than 25 years the Beach House has been one of our favorite dining spots on Kauai. The food is good, the service pleasant, and the views from your dinner table are unsurpassed! Many of fondest dinner memories (including our honeymoon) were made here!

My husband, sister/brother in law and myself went to Beach House for drinks last week around 4:30. We were staying just down the street at a house and it was within walking distance from our house which was perfect. We found ourselves a spot at the bar and didn't move for a couple of hours. The bar quickly filled up... More

The filet was great and my gf thought the macnut was just ok. We went for a late dinner but wish we went during sunset as I bet this place has a great view.

This is our "date night" go to on kauai. MAKE RESERVATIONS for a window side table. Spectacular sunsets. Food and service outstanding. We have never been disappointed with any food or beverage selection. Pricy, but worth the splurge.
