Not a good experience. Our waiter, Shane, was disappointing. He tried to greet us initially but then retreated and went to 2 other tables! Not ok. Bus boy and food runner made the experience OK. No one liked their food. Then Shane told us the ownership changed last month and it all started to make sense... The rushed service by... More

We got there early to enjoy the view, sunset and watch and talk to the surfers! We got some great pictures of the surfers, which we forwarded to them--and they were thrilled. The place is super busy, but didn't take away from the quality of service or food. We had a wonderful meal in a great atmosphere.

My wife and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary by taking our family (three adult sons, wives and seven grandchildren to Kauai for 10 days. The Beach House was our final family dinner before we left Kauai. Our table was outdoors overlooking the beach. The food, wine, and service was fantastic! The sunset was awesome! What a way to celebrate... More

Excellent view and moon fish. Great service. Both lunch and dinner are excellent. Their mai tai is wonderful as it's not too sweet but refreshing. My favorite restaurant.

Stayed next door. Enjoyed lunch one day. Views were great, food was average and pricey for what you get. Mai tai's were ok. Staff was friendly. The view is what draws you in to enjoy!

I booked a table weeks in advance to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday. I requested a good table for this special occasion. What we received was a table outside of the main restaurant on a back patio with NO view so to speak of and that felt like it was back service area, Our waiter ignored us for the longest... More

This popular restaurant is best enjoyed at sunset, but the food and view can be enjoyed any time they are open. The glare may be an issue for some so in addition to your appetite, bring a pair of sun glasses. And be considerate of your wait staff when you leave your table for photos and leave them standing at... More

Four drinks and two appetizers put us over $100.00. However, you're really there for the stunning views. Good service.

A wonderful meal of fresh fish with a very close view of the sunset and surf. The drinks and dessert were both great. It is a better restaurant and less expensive restaurant than on many of the large resorts. We liked it better than Tidepools. reservations on open table is a must.

Thank Curt2247
