Upscale Resort, Upscale Pool Restaurant

This is at the pool at the St. Regis Hotel. It has a beautiful view of the hotel, pool, and ocean beyond. I had the best fish sandwich ever--a blackened mahi on a soft roll ($21). Pricey, as you would expect, for the drinks too. You're not going there for a cheap meal!

This was our favorite dining option at the resort. We ate lunch with friends several times and enjoyed every dish and tropical drink. The service was wonderful and the seating area is lovely.

We had been staying on Kauai a week before we went to order a smoothie at this poolside grill. We had not had a decent smoothie until we were served one by this staff....oh my! So glad we enjoyed the strawberry-coconut one....delish. Wonderful fish and chips!

Great friendly staff and the food is quite good. If you are staying at the St Regis Princeville be sure to get the pork sliders!!

The day we arrived to stay at St. Regis we unpacked and headed down to the pools. It was a beautiful day and we were starving, so we had lunch at the pool. Great food, reasonably priced (for Hawaii) top notch service and surrounding that are second to none! Lunched/snacked there a few times during our stay and each time... More

We ate here 5 or 6 times this week- it is solid stuff, what you would anticipate given the setting. Good salad, good BBQ sliders, chicken sandwich. Service is excellent- prices again- what you would expect- mid teens $ for a salad or burger/chicken sandwich. The fries are very good also. The drink menu is OK- not the best, but... More

Great service. Very good food, but it is a real outlier at this hotel. Just lovely staff, solicitous and charming. If you end up at the Princeville St. Regis make reservations to eat dinner here every night.

My friend and I had a late lunch when we arrived at the St Regis. We sat at the bar and drank cocktails and ate some delicious lollipop wings and coconut shrimp as we listened to the waves crashing on the beach. Simply perfect.

I took a friend of mine out for lunch at the Nal Kai since she was moving. We were seated under an umbrella facing Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai. They could have fed me sand and I wouldn't have cared. The view was like nothing I had ever seen. There wasn't a cloud in the sky that day with a... More

The location of the St. Regis in Princeville is stunning. The pool bar/grill did not meet my expectations given it is a part of an upscale resort. Small, limited menu. Expensive for average food. Bar service was not great.....not what you would expect in a nice resort.
