Food was great, what else do you need to know. Ok, great staff and service, great views, lots of friendly tourists and lots of friendly locals all dining together. Feel free to turn to your neighboring table and share a story or a laugh or to ask a question. Get there just before sunset!!!

Worth it for the sunset view if you arrive early and book way in advance. What a show! However, the food was just average and a bit disappointing. They also made 2 mistakes on my order and our waitress had to correct these by sending the plate back.

The best way to experience this place is by stumbling on to it. In this day of social media that is most likely impossible. Plan an evening here and don't tell your spouse or significant other anything other than you are going to dinner. Let the surprise wash over you both. In fact read some of the negative reviews of...

Booked with Reef Adventures of Kauai with guides Craig and Jimmy. First class tour and ecology centered pre excursion talk and great REEF expectations fullfilled with half dozen turtels and over 20 species of fish. Excellence continued to the Beachhouse where lunch was provided through the tour. GREAT EXPERIENCE

Amazing sunset views. Snag an early reservation to coincide with sunset. Even if your table isn't right by the window, the restaurant is open access to the lawn and perfectly situated for sunset views. The food was delicious and the service was superb.

The Beach House has Fantastic Food and a Great Mai Tai plus a view that is beautiful. Certainly go there for dinner and see the Sunset but also go for Lunch. There is no rush to leave (plenty of tables) you can watch the surfers and have a good meal.

The Beach House is a superior place to dine and remember to ask for an early seating to time it with sunset. But also know you can sit in the bar area and spend a whole lot less money and see the same incredible sunset.

Arrive just before sunset for a drink on the outdoor patio and have an early dinner in the dining room - drinks are excellent - especially their Mai Tai.....best we have had here. Service attentive and friendly.....Ceviche was delicious - very different from Mexican style...seafood was heavenly., perfectly prepared......Went back the next night......don't miss this institution

Been here many a time. View and location are now the drivers versus the food. Seafood pasta was good not great. Caesar salad just OK. Had to ask for pepper - not automatically offered. Carrot cake was very good as was the homemade ice cream. They were wonderful about celebrating my birthday. Appreciate the effort made here! Not my favorite... More

Wonderful place to watch the sunset. Dinners are a little pricey but food was excellent. They have nightly fish specials and try the carrot cake for dessert.
