The outside deck is a lovely spot overlooking the beach, situated in the Anchor Cove shopping center. There were lots of lunch choices--I enjoyed the mahi sandwich but would have preferred it without the melted cheese; my husband had a very good burger. It is an easy walk from nearby hotels and the cruise terminal.

Visiting the Marriott Beach Club in early October, we were so disappointed to find that Marriott management closed down one of our favorite places in the resort....the Kalapaki Grill! Kurt, Cissy, Richard and crew have been moved over to work in the less than wonderful Kukuii's Bar and trust me, it's just NOT THE SAME. For some reason, it seems... More

We just learned that Kauai Marriott has closed the beachfront restaurant Kalapaki Grill. The Kalapaki Grill embodied the "Spirit of Kauai" - the exceptionally friendly service and the casual beach dining experience were central to our enjoyment and one of the big reasons we continued to return numerous times to this resort. The servers, the menu, the beachside location and... More

Had to ask for sugar twice, salt and pepper twice, chips that were supposed to come with hot dog had to be requested. We are guests at the hotel and the waitress could not understand our... More

We have enjoyed this little stand on the Marriott property for 15 years. It's great and casual. Food service to the pool and the beach plus a terrific bar you can sit at in your bathing suit and feel very comfortable. Unfortunately, the Marriott management decided to close it and force everyone to use Kukui restaurant and Bar which is... More

Great for afternoon drinks and relatively inexpensive eats but unfortunately Marriott management closed it and combined with Kukui's restaurant in the hotel.

We ordered some drinks & food here on our stay at the Mariott. Nothing special, just your typical poolside drinks & foods at resort prices.

First time eating here! Family enjoyed it. Great burgers no matter which one you get and you can order it your way. Very reasonable priced for what you get. Go upstairs for a beach view while you eat!

My husband and I stopped here for a quick lunch, and were shocked at how good it was. We got the chicken quesadillas and they were amazing!! I would absolutely go again and recommend it to others!
