We didn't make it to the beach house for sunset but Clyde made our experience great anyway. He was expert at explaining their fish dishes (get a fish fish). I had the Ono with coconut curry - great! And my husband had the ahi - also amazing. Clyde treated us to some ice cream as a honeymoon gift - many... More

Great food, fresh fish, boozy drinks, and a view certain to knock your socks off. The waiter Brett was amazing as well. On the expensive side but totally worth it!!

You can't beat the location of this restaurant and wish the food lived up to the same description. We had to sit in the bar area for dinner and until the sun completely set, it was incredibly hot and uncomfortable. The service was just o.k.and our server had quite an edge of caustic humor that wasn't entirely welcome.

We've been her a couple of times on our visits to Kauai. The atmosphere is superb, lovely sunset views. Unfortunately, their menu hasn't changed much over the years and the food quality wasn't as great as other times. I was also annoyed with the water service. The waitress asked us if we wanted plain or sparkling water. When I said... More

Trip Advisor comments indicated that this was a great place to go for a sunset dinner, which I can now imagine is true, Unfortunately, going there during the sunset hours did not fit our schedule so we stopped by there for an afternoon drink and pupu, WOW! The drinks and the spinach salad,that we shared, were excellent, but the real... More

The best thing about the Beach House Restaurant is the view. If you want a stunning view of the sunset, this is the place to eat. However, you're definitely paying for that view! The food is good (not the best thing I've ever eaten), but VERY expensive. For the 4 of us to eat there, it cost $200. You'll need... More

The views are beautiful as the restaurant is ocean front. We were lucky enough to have a table by the window. Service was friendly. Food was ok. Not our favorite meal of our trip though.

A beautiful spot to enjoy the sunset with every table, bar stool and chair offering a perfectly framed view. We had Jay as our server, although the manager (Tim) and the bus boy offered more regular and professional service. We had plenty of time to enjoy the view as we waited an exceptionally long time for our area to be... More

We ate here four times during our two week stay. Enjoyed every meal. Sunset is fantastic. We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary here for dinner and the staff made it special by presenting us with a card signed by them and a complimentary dessert.
