Scenery and service I would give 5 stars but the food was just average. We got the lava lava cake for desert and it was smaller than a brownie. The ice cream was better than the cake.

You get to eat right on the beach next to the crashing waves. Friendly, fast service, good food, live music and chickens roaming around the tables. I loved it!

Location was casual and perfect - tables in the sand by the ocean - what could be better? We arrived from the airport at the tail end of happy hour - our server helped out greatly in getting us happy hour goodies (the ahi poke...was heavenly) and we stayed for dinner. The drink menu was varied - I would have liked a taste of almost everything. Just a perfect way to start our trip!More

Staying at the Kauai Shores, wandered down to try the resort's beachfront restaurant. Some inside seating but mostly tables set on the sand outside, overlooking the beach and ocean. Very friendly, modern staff using connected devices for ordering and processing checks. Varied menu but somewhat...limited seafood entrees, given beach location. Adult drink menu offered many local varieties - tried the coconut Mai Tai that drank very smoothly. The Halikau chowder is local version of New England clam chowder and was very good. Ordered the coconut shrimp which arrived almost immediately. Ample number of shrimp and sides were also good. Prices a bit high but expected at resort and great location dining on the beach with local music entertainment. Usual Kauai chickens wandering among tables. Limited parking but valet available.More

Beautiful ocean side dining, the best mai tai's we had on the island, attentive service, delicious food and luscious key lime pie kept us going back for more during our recent trip to Kauai!

Stopped in for lunch. Great burgers. Order at counter and they bring to outside tables. Best sandwich since we have been here. Staff are friendly.

We lucked out and got seated quickly due to another large group didn't show... Drinks and food were all good to great. Pizzas were a big hit... Nice setting and music. We ordered additional drinks that never showed. Then, the bill came with FIVE additional...items charged. The bill was adjusted....More

We ate at the Lava Lava on the Big Island a few years ago and we really liked it. Pretty disappointed with this one. Very limited lunch menu, quality was lacking and the service was not friendly at all, had to ask for drink refill...and never asked us if we needed anything else. Bright side, the view was wonderful.More

This is on the east beach of Kauai. You can only watch the sunrise from here.
