Came here on the recommendation
Came here on the recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed. Their ribeye was perfectly seasoned and well cooked.
Their ribs fell right off the bone and was moist and tender. I'm getting hungry again just writing this.
Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and wines.
I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking to get their steak and rib fix.

Worth going even with drive
Good reviews in multiple web rating sites. We had a great meal, which was very reasonably priced for Kauai. Server was excellent. It is also a local favorite, which is a good indicator of where to go.
Only complaint was they had no seafood that night.

Good food; rustic atmosphere
Food was good; priced appropriately, I would say. Not cheap; not expensive. Very friendly and courteous wait staff, but inexperienced by city standards. (After appetizers were served, all silverware was removed... Then salads came and no one noticed we had no silverware. I can laugh this kind of thing off... Dumb mistake easily corrected, but indicates lack of coordination and experience).
No need to dress up. Atmosphere is rustic "dress-down".
Lots of cars out front indicate it is a popular spot and they are obviously doing something right. Food itself was very good.

Always a hit
Probably my favorite restaurant on the south side of the island. The food is delicious and Caroline really makes you feel like you're coming to a family dinner at her house. Great food, great atmosphere, and love that its not a huge noisy restaurant. Would highly recommend!!

This is a very simple restaurant,
This is a very simple restaurant, but the steaks are great, good quality meat and prepared well. We had aged rib eye at Merriman's the night before and it didn't even compare to the steak at Kalaheo Steak and Ribs. It's 15 minutes from Poi-Pu, but worth the drive. The staff is really friendly also.

Dare to leave Poipu
Most tourists are in Poipu for one time only and succumb to corporate designed restaurants with fake tropical ambience and service designed to maximize table turnover. I get that. Been there, done that and they are all basically the $ame. There are many places outside the tourist enclaves with great food and local ambience. This place is a very good steakhouse, fish too. Excellent service, local vibes. There's a bar separate from the restaurant with local musicians.

We visited this restaurant at the suggestion of a Marriott employee. We were pleased with everything. This is not a cookie-cutter chain restaurant, but a mom and pop type that takes pride in what they do. They made our evening most enjoyable.

Meet cooked perfect
My husband had the ribs and I had the stuffed pork chop, everything tasted great.

Great place for meat lovers
I try to make it a point to go to Kalaheo Steak and Ribs whenever I am on Kauai, and it never disappoints. The prime rib is just superb, well cooked and seasoned just right, and you have to also try their ribs which just falls off the bone.
Great crowd, good food, and the service is always excellent. If you have a chance, I highly recommend paying this restaurant a visit.

Best steakhouse on Kauai.
Best steakhouse on Kauai. Casual, fine dining. Nice menu, great food, nice wine list, and great, friendly service. A nice touch, the owner visits each table to inquire if you are enjoying your dining experience. While steaks are their specialty, they also do a little of everything else, fish, chicken, etc. Very popular with locals as well as visitors to the island. Definitely will be back next time in the area.

Had a great time!
A special place!
Caroline made us feel welcome, shared stories of the island, made us laugh with her quick wit and charm and truly made our dining experience a memorable one. The Ribeye was amazing and she poured a nice martini!
If you want a authentic neighborhood feel, minus the tourist trap, this is the place!

Will definitely go back
Had an early dinner out first night in Kauai. The restaurant had a country decor and had classic country music playing - not at all loud, very easy to have a conversation. We had the calamari appetizer - absolutely amazing- tender and the aioli had a great flavor. For dinner I had the prime rib and my husband had the filet. Both were tender and prepared perfectly. I have paid more for steaks that weren't as good. The kids menu had several offerings. Our daughter had chicken strips and they were also well prepared. Service was excellent through the entire meal- everything came out at exactly the right time and dishes were cleared efficiently. The owner stopped by to see how things were and chat a bit. We will be back before we leave.

Great little steak house
This is a find , not another glass and chrome , hip, sleek and cool steak house. From the screen door that opens out , too the regulars at the bar you go through to the dining room , the place feels warm and comfortable. The steaks were excellent , cooked to the exact temp. we requested . All the food was very good , mushroom appetizer, and not to be missed , the deserts . If the chocolate and coconut pie we had was an example of all their deserts , remember to save room .
