While staying in Princeville, we really wanted to try Roy's new restaurant. We've enjoyed his other restaurants and understand this was going to be a different spin. The food and service were all very solid. We had a great evening and the server did a great job. The actual layout of the restaurant wasn't very inspired though. At the end... More

First of all, the view at sunset was amazing, overlooking the golf course looking north. $110 for two of us for decent food, two beers, and one glass of wine. I had the chicken. My wife had the shrimp scampi. Wifey was not impressed with the pasta. I had a couple bites and wasn't blown away. When I ordered the... More

A beautiful view, excellent food and perfect service...all at reasonable pricing. We visited twice on our vacation and ate at the bar. Chelsea was delightful and remembered our drinks from our first visit. Servers were still a little shocked that the restaurant and golf course we're closing December 31 under new ownership. We wish them all well.

This restaurant at the Prince Golf Course in Princeville, HI has the most incredible views. While having a nice lunch you have views of the golf course with the mountains as a backdrop. And the flora is beautiful. The Tomato bisque and grilled cheese sandwich was great. Well worth the time on your way to the North Shore and Princeville... More

This is fancy food, not extremely pricey, nor extremely tasty, but it has some highlights that bump it up to 4 stars. 1.) It is in a nice location, and has good atmosphere. This is rare for Kauai. 2.) It has a big bar and you can grab seats there if the tables are all booked. 3.) The ribs and... More

For a number of years I have been coming to Kauai and I have played the Prince golf course on many occasions. This year was the first time we have tried the Tavern at the Prince clubhouse. Part of the reason for trying this restaurant is because it will probably be the last time I ever have the opportunity to... More

Everything we ate was fabulous. It's a noisy atmosphere, but it's nice. The crusted mahi was great. The banana crepes for dessert was ok.

I had done some research before arriving on Kauai. Based on Trip Advisor reviews, we selected The Tavern. We had reservations our 1st night on the island. I had the short ribs (the best I have ever had) and my husband had the buttermilk fried chicken (he loved his food too). We were both happy with our choices. Amy was... More

The Tavern is one of my favorite restaurants on the North Shore. Sadly, they will be closing on Dec. 31 now that the owners of the land have new ideas about the property-- apparently the Prince Golf Course is going private and they are tearing down The Prince Clubhouse which includes the Tavern. Progress is not always pretty or progress.... More
