“Exquisite view - average food - exorbitant prices.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

Our kids bought us a gift certificate to the Beach House. Having been there several times previously, we knew that lunch would probably be a better value than dinner. The view was beautiful, but the food rated only good, in our opinion. My wife said her mango chicken wrap was very good, but my fish and rings had a paltry amount of protein on the plate - three SMALL strips of Mahi Mahi. Dessert was decadent, as advertised, and the service was excellent. The quantity of fish was disappointing, but we found small to paltry portions of protein to be the norm among most of Kauai's over-priced restaurants, this trip. Go for the view, if you can afford it.

“Not what is used to be”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

We have been coming to Beach House for over 15 years. We were known by first name, had great service and the food and wine list were very good. This is NOTthe case anymore! Food is WAY over priced! Wine list used to be top notch, NOT anymore. New staff is poorly trained. The former local staff are all gone. Food took way to long. We were charged for a picture that we never asked for. Manager looked out of place and was more interested in his wine than saying goodbye to us as we were leaving. Very sad that this place is NOT what it used to be.

“Great views, service, etc. No complaints!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

Went for a night out. Excellent filet, great flavor. Good drinks, friendly staff. Brett was very knowledgeable about the dishes and explaining what drinks would go well with the different foods. Quick with his service, attentive but not overbearing like some places - was able to enjoy the meal and dining experience. He had some great recommendations for things to do on the island too! We had the crab cakes and calamari for appetizers, really enjoyed them. The view can't be beat!

“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

Had a wonderful time with the family here tonight. Food was outstanding as was the service. I would recommend the Mahi Mahi with lobster tail side and definitely sit in Edwins station as he was outstanding (knew the food, kind, polite and very friendly). Would definitely return!!!

Food was so good. Would go back again if we ever get a chance. Book ahead early so you can catch dinner at sunset!
