Good for teens and families to have a fun, cheap meal and watch the sunset.

If you are craving a beer with a friend or a good hamburger while watching the sunset come here for a chat with a friend!

The Beach House really has it all! It has become our family tradition to dine at the Beach House every time we visit Poipu. The scenery is breathtaking. We watched the sunset, dolphins and whales! The staff is accommodating, and the food is yummy. Nice selection. We also had a family picture taken with the ocean and sunset behind us.... More

We told them it was our anniversary (30 years!) when we made our reservation. They sat us at a wonderful table right on the edge of the restaurant with an amazing view of the sunset. The food was excellent, the wait staff super attentive and Jackie, the photographer did a wonderful job of capturing this fun event for us. If... More

Our family of 5 had a marvelous dinner at the Beach House last night, and the kids are still talking about the food and the fact that the server "loved his job and knew everything". Meals were uniformly excellent (potstickers, brussels sprouts for appetizer), killer boar burgers (my son ate the entire burger with evident relish and finished off his... More

The Beach House's location by the ocean, esp at sunset, and Hawaiian cuisine has tourists here in flocks like the Kauai chickens each night. Beautiful spot for pics. Very pricey. Cocktails range from $9-13 and fresh market price catch of the day is near $40. Our party of 6 adults enjoyed sharing some apps and entrees to keep our check... More

I have to say I was a bit nervous after reading a few reviews, but our last night on the island was quite perfect and we have this restaurant to help to make it so! Reservations and were seated exactly on time! Table was unbelievable; could not have requested a more perfect spot but most tables were fabulous. It was... More

We made a reservation before leaving home, since we knew that this restaurant was in demand. We were seated quickly and the staff was very friendly. Our appetizers and entrées were delicious. Dessert was huge, enough for several people. A little pricey but no more than similar restaurants nearby.

Annoyed!! Seriously, the nicest place to dine in Kauai in terms of view and ambiance. Terrible in terms of food and service. The place has outlived its vitality as a premier restaurant in Kauai. Fish is consistently dr. Everything is soo oversalted that my wife and I were debating how many packs of cigarettes the chefs smoke per day to... More

Beautiful setting for a sunset meal. We made reservations for seating at sunset. (Reservations are a must as it's a popular place.) The food was very good - I had the restaurant specialty - Macadamia encrusted Mahi Mahi served with fresh green beans and rice. It was good and such a large serving that I couldn't eat it all. Our...

We arrived early and had a mediocre cocktail/glass of wine at the bar served by an overworked bartender. Based on that, we decided to take a walk at sunset instead of staying for dinner.
