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

We went there on our last night on Kauai. Had an Oceanview and great waitress! My husband had a fillet and shrimp and I had the Beef Tenderloin. Both were amazing! The sides and salad bar were fair. But it was nice to have a dinner that didn't cost us $200!

We visit Kauai at least once a year, and we always eat at The Bull Shed. All meals come with bread and the salad bar, which is always fresh and plentiful. I've tried just about everything on the menu and loved them all. Steaks, fish, shellfish, chicken, prime rib, it's all great. Meals come with rice; baked potatoes are $3... More

Short walk from the Marriott Courtyard and wonderful food! If you can go for $5 Mai Tai's first. I had the fresh fish of the day which was Opah and it was delicious! Staff was excellent except the hostess was short & rude with her responses, but don't let her turn you away. Good prices and great food on Kauai... More

We dined at The Bull Shed on Prince Kuho Day, a Hawaiian Holiday. As the result of the holiday, the restaurant was busier than normal. Regardless, our wait was short and we were soon seated where we enjoyed good service plus the catch of the day, a fish called MonChong. This thick tasty fish was expertly prepared. If you dine...

Excellent Scallops! and I don't even like scallops, but I am from the prairies. They were to die for! Had the baby back ribs also and they were also delicious. Would have liked to go there one more time, but it was not to be. Maybe if I go to Kauai again. This restaurant only opens at 4:30 for happy... More

Lovely restaurant with ocean views and live music. Great service too. We had Rack of Lamb which was exquisite. Prepared perfectly with nice presentation. It comes with a trip through the salad bar. We will most certainly return on our next visit.
