Nice, upscale restaurant with very good food at a high but not too pricey cost. The locals go here for special occasions and for a nice night out. Fresh fish, steak, salads and all of it very tasty. Restaurant is clean and staff are personable. The Oceanside location is wonderful with a view of Spouting Horn and lovely sunsets.
I have been here multiple times and will return again.
Would point out we have only gone here for dinner, so am not familiar with their other featured meals.

Worth the trip for the food, the view and the service, the Beach House near Poipu, Kauai. Nina, our Server for the evening was wonderful. Her descriptions of the daily Fresh Catch options will make your mouth water and choices easy. Not bad for a NorCal Girl. Manager Tim was attentive and a delight to talk with also. We were celebrating my wife's Birthday and it could not have been a better choice. We didn't have the opportunity to sample any of the bottle wine choices as we had to drive back to Lahue, but the pricing is excellent compared to other island eaterys. Oh, did I mention one of Kauai's top Sunset viewing locations? Give it a go.

We are vegetarian and they were very accommodating to us with some very nice options on their menu. The ambiance is worth it let alone the good food. We had a beautiful sunset as we dined.

This is our third time dining at Beach House. We've dined in various high end Maui and Kauai restaurants and here's a quick summary of Beach House -

Location - Excellent... Sunsets are the main event and it's almost comical to see everyone flocking to the grass to get a picture and watch the sunset.

Service - Very good to excellent. Very friendly and knowledgable servers.

Food - Good... Not great. We've enjoyed fresher seafood and larger portions elsewhere in Hawaii. In my opinion - for what it's worth - I'm a bit skeptical of over-reliance on truffle oil and au beurre... If you like those flavors you may enjoy the dishes more..

Value - So-so... Never feel like we get great or even good value here. I would expect more portion of fish and more innovation on the flavors with local ingredients for the prices.

Customers - Be careful of loud obnoxious types on the balcony to the west side... We asked to move after the couple beside us insisted on yelling across to the table next to them (strangers nonetheless) ever detail of every past vacation they had taken in memory. Plus, it was gross to see another patron rest her feet at eye level on the railing (like she was at the pool or beach) while we were eating... Just sayin... Staff were very accommodating in moving us out of there after one drink and appy.

Overall, an ok experience but we're in no rush to return...

Sunsets from the "window" seats are exquisite; make sure you reserve early - we always do even before leaving the mainland. The seafood here is exquisite as well, the best we've found on the island and equal to top restaurants around the world. Service is friendly and attentive. There are many reasons we keep returning to Kauai and this restaurant is on the list.
