My husband and I went for dinner and I was expecting to love this restaurant based on all the race reviews.... BUT the food was actually horrible. You are paying for the location/view and that's about it. Price: 2 cocktails,1 appetizer, 2 entrees = $120 (before tip). I don't mind paying extra for a nice meal add long as it's... More

We went to the Beach House twice for lunch since we enjoyed our first trip so much. The burgers are excellent and made with fresh homemade rolls. The location is on a lovely beach with open air windows and can't be beat. I thought they were a very good value too, especially the kids menu items.

We had an amazing sunset dinner at the beach house near poipu beach on the island of Kauai. Our server was a man named Clyde who was very funny and helpful! The food was akin to that you would find at a Maestros or Flemmings steak house with a bit more of the seafood influence. We ordered lobster and local... More

The restaurant is very nice, beautiful setting. i ordered fish in a red curry sauce over rice, it was delicious but I did have to send it back because it was undercooked. They brought me a new one (fully cooked). My husband ordered pork and it was completely forgettable. It lacked flavor.

We were snorkeling (with turtles) at the beach next to the restaurant and got hungry and went inside for a casual bite to eat. What a pleasant surprise! Excellent, efficient and friendly service. All three of our meals were great and we got to watch some locals surfing off the point. I had the best fish tacos of my life... More

We made reservations ahead of time, because we were told it is hard to get in. Everything about this place is terrific! The view is like nowhere else. Beautiful ocean and amazing sunset! The food was first rate gourmet fare, and be sure to splurge on the bananas foster for desert. Yum!!!

Some people had warned us that the restaurant is a little touristy - but we are tourists! The main thing that makes it a tourist place is the location - the restaurant is oceanfront with a lovely lawn. At sunset, many patrons go out to take photos with the sunset in the background. Presumably, locals would not do this. The... More

I took my Mom and Mother in Law to see Allerton Gardens and didn't realize you needed to book a tour, so we walked around their teaser gardens and then decided to go have a cocktail and appetizer at Beach House. We ordered fluffy cocktails and the ceviche appetizer and thought everything was divine! Wish we would have gone for... More

This is a beautiful waterfront restaurant with great strips of calimari--best I have ever tasted. We enjoyed a leisurely lunch and then went snorkeling right outside in the bay, which made for a great afternoon.
