This restaurant is located in the Princeville Golf Club with a beautiful view of the sprawling greens with the ocean way beyond. It is a Roy Yamaguchi restaurant and we love his food. We sat in the bar at a "high" table and had a very pleasant waiter. It is super casual there with lots of golfers and people drinking... More

Great scenery! It's on a beautiful golf course. Get the market price fish of the day. It's fantastic, but very rich. The service was great, from the bus gal to the server. The timing was perfect. The coconut creme brule is AMAZING!!!!

The Tavern was a delightful finish to our Kauai vacation. The setting is beautiful overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The food was very tasty. The parmesan crusted pork chop was out of this world! The pineapple crisp dessert was really yummy! Would definitely return.

We came here for drinks and dinner and wanted to see sunset. The sun set behind a mountain and the happy hour offerings were mainly fried. Nothing special. Dinner was ok, not great. Service was not fast or friendly.

First attempt the North Shore lost electricity. The managers personally explained, comped the drinks and made us rez for the next night. I eat fish in Hawaii almost exclusively and it must be good. The Mahi Mahi (Dorado) was excellent, service the same. The restaurant lacks a little in atmosphere relative to whats out there, but a very good place... More

Was looking for a dinner place outside the hotel, so decided to look around and found some good reviews for the Tavern. Was easy to make a reservation, and was only a few minutes drive from the Westin. When we first arrived, wasn't sure where the entrance was, so just went into the main clubhouse building of the golf course.... More

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
