We returned to the Beach House after a four and one year hiatus. We had reserved a table for sunset a month in advance and were rewarded with a prime, ocean view table. We were in no hurry for our entrée so we ordered the kale salad and the vegan coconut corn chowder. Both were delicious and large enough to... More

Still amazing view BUT management has changed within the past year and not nearly as nice as before. The artwork used to wow -- now just interesting. Sadly the quality of the food is now just average. Fish and chips was just okay with limp fries and arrivals salad was just a so-so dressing. The view and the wait staff... More

My husband wanted an ocean front birthday lunch, so we decided to try the Beach House. The server, Iris, was wonderful, and so was the food. We started with the calamari appetizer. We usually prefer the tentacles, but these strips were seasoned well and were tasty. 8 pieces were plenty for 2 people. I ordered the grilled fish sandwich, and... More

Thought it was a little over priced for the food and service. I had the Cajun ribeye it was good, nothing too special.

We dropped by the Beach House for appetizers one day and decided that was the spot we wanted to go back to to celebrate my birthday. The Mai Tai's are amazing and the Calamari was so very tasty ! Our dinner evening was fantastic - from the valet parking to the warm and friendly service and did I mention the... More

I eat out a lot and I can always judge a restaurant by their appetizers and coffee. Both here were amazing. Don't miss the salad selections, crab cakes, and their French pressed coffee! (best on the islands!)

We spent to the Beach House Restaurant last night. Prior to coming to Kauai this trip, I read all of the reviews and was not planning on visiting the Beach House. My wife said, "let's go, it is our favorite restaurant on Kauai." Glad she did. I would like to counter a few of the negative remarks made by several... More

Fabulous! Food was outstanding. I had the corn chowder, my husband had the ceviche, and we shared a crab roll appetizer. Great wine and cocktail selections and fabulous view of the beach and the sea. We were on the terrace, and our wait staff were exceptional. Highly recommend this place!!

We were here during our last visit three years ago and were again wowed by the experience. Yes, it was really busy on Christmas Eve, but we got our table really fast and could enjoy the marvellous sunset. Also our waiter was fast, so no problems there. I had the crab cakes for starters and really liked them, hubby had... More

Booked a 40th anniversary dinner almost a week earlier specifically asking for a ocean side table. Nope. Put in the back where the dirty dishes are taken. Sorry, nothing else available. Really? Okay, cocktails are ordered. They finally arrive after a very long wait. The three appetizers we ordered came out immediately which immediately made me suspicious. Yes indeed, they... More
