Many choices for dinner. People had fresh Ahi. Others had meatloaf and mashed potatoes, prime rib, salad with Ahi or chicken, soups and salads. Many choices and six people pleased with meals. Dinners were topped with free warm bread pudding with sauce. Excellent meals and dessert. Choices of any alcoholic drinks and non alcoholic. A very enjoyable dinner.

This restaurant is a short drive from the major tourist spots of Poipu, Kauai. As such, it gets local patrons in addition to tourists. It isn't flashy, but the staff is friendly and attentive and the steaks are excellent. Each meal includes a salad and there are several appetizers on the menu. There is a small bar in a separate...

Enjoyed dinner with friends & kids on a weeknight. They were able to accommodate DH gluten free diet, understanding what GF means and how to best suggest entrees for him! They have kids menu, which includes steak for the kiddos. Also, loved my prime rib, which was huge! The owner even stopped by with Mr Marley, their little dog mascot,... More

This is definitely my all time favorite steak house on Kauai! My wife and I were here on our second visit to Kauai celebrating my wife's birthday. We had dinner on Feb 9, Feb 14 (Valentines Day) and Feb 15 which was the last day of our trip. We had to come back the last day of our vacation for... More

From the moment we walked in, we fell in love with Kalaheo Steak and Ribs. We sat next to such a nice couple from town and learned they hosted a group of students each year from a university in Iowa and taught island studies. They also perform weddings and renewals and themselves have been married 50 years. Everything was top... More

We decided that we wanted a nice dinner. We booked the Kalahoe Strak and Ribs. Three of us had Prime Rib and one had chicken piccata. Everyone was super happy with they dinner. The prime rib looked a little thin when it was delivered but was filling for everyone. A great place away from the resorts with mostly local folks.... More

Steak sounded good after so much fish, which is what drew us to this place. Older, little funky building, but clean and nice inside. Service was really good and steak was very nice. Baked potato, asparagus and dinner salad, plus bread. Had enough steak left to make two sandwiches the next day to take on the plane home.
