Better than I expected

I was reluctant to go here at first because it looks a little touristy from the outside but I'm really glad we did! I like the range of items on the menu and everything we had was very well made. I had the seafood corn chowder and it was delicious, I would go back just to get another bowl of... read more

As other reviews say, the setting at the Beach House is truly lovely. I'd recommend enjoying it from their bar, though, with a pre-dinner drink, and then eating elsewhere. I found the food to be downright disappointing. I even sent my $40 scallops back, they were so tasteless, and the "risotto" they were served with was mushy and bland. To... More

My husband, who rarely does anything in advance, made sure to get reservations well in advance at the Beach House for our 25th wedding anniversary dinner. We were told it was the best of the best, and we figured with him informing the staff of this special occasion and it being a Tuesday evening, we'd be OK. We arrived on... More

Pros - Like all the reviews say, view, especially sunset, is great. Very attentive and friendly wait staff. The calamari appetizer is worth a try. Dinner portion size was bigger than I thought it would be, if that's important to you. Everybody enjoyed their meal, but not "blown away". The food was served "hot". Cons - We all got hot... More

We had dinner reservations in the restaurant, we got their early and went to the bar for a drink. We ended up eating in the bar. No reservations required, the menu is the same and the view was spectacular. Dinner was good, service was excellent.

Hands down best meal we had on the island. The first thing our waiter said: the table was ours for the night, so take your time and enjoy the view. The walls slide open for beautiful views-- surfers were impressive. Great photo opportunities at sunset and plenty of people to snap a photo or get one from the available professional.... More

Beautiful sunset is visible. Free valet parking is an added bonus. Four of us ate dinner, three meals were excellent, mine was ok. I'm used to Kiwi scallops so my fault for ordering them. The cost is on the high size but all in all an excellent one off night.

By far this restaurant is at the top of "my must" dine when on the Island… and a must is their Mai Tai !!

This was our best dining experience of a two week trip to Kauai. We leave tomorrow. Someone just told us about this place yesterday. Got the reservation for 6:45 PM to be there for sunset. This is open-air and right on the water. On a scale of 1 to 5, this is a 10 for atmosphere. Watched the sunset from... More

This is a great spot for a romantic dinner for two! The food was good and the ocean view even better! Parking isn't great but you can valet for a small fee. Dinner isn't cheap, but the ambiance is worth it!
