Had a few locals tell me to try this place, it didn't disappoint. Perfectly cooked steaks, great little salad bar with garlic bread. Shrimp slightly over cooked but still had a great flavor. If a make it back to Kauai I'll be back for sure.

We've lived on this island going on three years. Being from California what I can honestly say is I really miss the variety of restaurants. But when we want a great dinner we head to the Bull Shed. The ambience could be improved but it's the food that brings us there. The wife had the bone in prime rib medium... More

First of all, a nice ambience with the ocean backdrop and cool breeze. The food was over all good but not amazing, seemed a bit overpriced for the quality and quantity. The prices were more like fine dining, yet I wouldn't put this in a fine dining category . The steaks were well cooked and the teriyaki chicken was good.... More

My wife and I were in the Hawaiian Islands for over 10 days to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We originally had dinner reservations at Duke’s in Marriott Resort, and at the recommendations from a local resident we met on airplane, she advised us to try Bullshead as a place frequented by local establishment. You are close to ocean, hear... More

So the reason you go to this restaurant is to sit ocean view to enjoy your mediocre meal. We called and requested a reservation and were told only parties with six or more were allowed to make a reservation, parties less than six had to walk in. Ok. So we walked in. After she took us past many open tables... More

Stopped in from our hotel as this was close. We got there and the hostess was stacking customers in the bar area. It was not busy at all, so we ordered two drinks. Not sure how you screw up alcohol but the barmaid did. Dinner was good, prime rib was excellent, grilled shrimp was, well grilled shrimp. Salad bar left... More

The steak was superb, the salad bar and bread was so fresh! We had 6 nights of dining on wonderful fresh seafood, and craved a good steak dinner. Someone suggested the Bull Shed, and we tried it. We're very glad that we did.

Location! Location! Location! The waves literally splashed onto the windows - which were shut! Not sure if the tides were high whilst we were there but is made for a lovely view. The food was delicious, they know how to cook a steak and the help yourself salad bar had a reasonable variety in it. Got to recommend the Lavaflow... More

It was busy, so that might have explained part of the bad service but from the hostess on down, the staff was neither friendly nor attentive. It took forever to get a table and longer to actually get the meal. The food was worth maybe half of what we paid for it and the salad bar was one of the... More

We ate here because I wanted prime rib. It was the worst I have ever had. My husband had the catch of the day and it was dry and tasteless. To have a baked potato with my prime rib (a staple in any other restaurant we have eaten in) cost an extra $3.00 !! The tables and booth in this... More
