“Great steak place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

My steak was very tasty. Loved the side of sauce they served with it. We also had the prime rib stir fry which was also very good. Good service good food. We liked getting out of Poipu and ate in Kalaheo 3 times on our trip.

“Great steak, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Ate here twice when my husband and I were in Kauai. The steak was cooked perfectly and was so tender and flavoursome. The meals are large and the sides served with your steak are great. The staff who served us were just lovely and very attentive. Given the price of other restaurants in the Poipu Bay area, this is definitely worth the ten minute drive if you feel like a more hearty dinner for a reasonable price.

“"Let's have some regular food for dinner tonight!"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We have been to Kauai many times but never really took the time to check out this place that takes you back in time. It is an old fashioned steak house. A bit rustic on the inside, we ate on the restaurant side, not the Saloon side, but the Hostess said that since it was before 6, even if we sat at a dining table we are welcome to order Happy Hour drinks, how nice.
Hubby ordered the Teriyaki Flank Steak with rosemary cream sauce, that came out the medium rare, exactly as he requested, he thought it was tender and a generous portion. I got the Baby Back Ribs in the Hickory cranberry BBQ sauce, wow, nice! We both got a baked potato, they were big and delicious and since we rarely order them anymore it was a nice treat, veggies good as well.
Since again we ordered before 6 pm we got a complimentary Molokai Sweet Bread Pudding, we meant to eat half and leave the rest to take home but it was impossible - Too Good!
This place is not fancy and not gourmet but you definitely should not miss it.

“a hidden treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

after some less than memorable meals elsewhere, I wanted some animal protein and was directed to this restaurant by a local and was she ever right !

Service was great and we were made to feel very welcome

they make their own salad dressings and they were both great.

I had ribs and tried the watermelon BBQ sauce and it was great ( but I love my sauce sweet and not spicy, so if you are a spicy fan you should not order the watermelon BBQ sauce), but a real treat is the coleslaw ( again sweet) with pineapple, a real taste of Hawaii

my wife had the prime rib stir fry and it was pretty good ( she thought the sauce was a little too sweet) but compared to our previous meals this was heaven. the prime rib pieces were melt in the mouth tender and perfectly cooked

our friend had ordered the calamari (not little rings but a calamari steak) and was pretty pleased with her order.

we went on a saturday night and there was some live entertainment in the saloon, old school, but interesting

In summary, a great restaurant, a little out of the way, but definitely worth the effort to find

“Under-rated out of the way jewel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

This is a very good steak place with few frills. It's a very low key atmosphere with a great ribeye to boot. Service is friendly and prices are about what they are anywhere on the island.
