Met up with some friends at The Tavern. This is the clubhouse on a golf course. It's a very clean, modern facility with lots of windows. The view was fantastic. Lunch was very good, but a little pricey. But we were at the most expensive golf course on Kauai (maybe all of Hawaii).

The burger is amazing. Yes it's $20 for the burger but the ingredients are amazing. The staff is friendly and yes it's on a Stuffy Golf Course but it's beautiful. I would recommend to friends.

Really enjoyed eating at the Tavern. I had one of the best Hamburgers I have ever eaten there and their Mai Tai is the best on the Island (especially if you don't like them too sweet). There is great views of the sunset and prices are reasonable for Hawaii. We ate there twice! A nice change from Hotel restaurants!

The escargot was great. It was more lemony than garlic flavored. I liked it that way even tho I love garlic. There were great chunks of fresh bread for soaking up the seasoned butter. My husband had the onion soup and it to was very tasty. We split a huge Caesar salad and it was so delicious we were too... More

Just because Roy's name is associated with this tavern, don't expect the service or quality of food you get at the Roy's restaurants. I had fish and it was overcooked and dry. The waiter did not know how to serve wine and my husband's rib eye had been sliced thin and covered with sauce - to hide all the fat.... More

The Tavern at Princeville by Roy Yamaguchi (5-3900 Kuhio Hwy, Princeville, HI 96722, tel. 808-826-8700). The setting is beautiful and the service was okay (by Tony). We shared one Grilled White Anchovy Caesar Flatbread ($14). It was like a pizza with salad on top. The flatbread was okay—a little too moist—with parmesan on top. The salad with its dressing and...

Ate here multiple times while staying in Princeville. Food was prepared and delivered by chef. Each entree, whether a sandwhich or a dinner entree were perfect. Could have broader menu. Friendly staff who went out of their way to get to know you

Went in for drinks and lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Cost was no higher than at other local restaurants, however we had a great view of the Prince course and excellent service.

The is one of our favorite restaurants when we stay in Princeville. Food is delicious, Mai tai is the best and the sunset view is outstanding. The tavern is one of Roy's family style restaurants and you don't want to miss this dining opportunity. They also have lunch and happy hour between 4-5pm. Enjoy!

We went in at happy hour, planning to have a drink and snack and then dinner after. We were greeted at the door and told "sit where ever you want (in the bar area).We sat at a table next to the window in the bar (great view of the course with the ocean in the distance) and we sat. And... More
