Aloha and welcome to Kalaheo Steak and Ribs. This establishment has been serving the people of Kauai for over 30 years. Our vision was to restore the original Kalaheo Steak House and create a premier dining experience with a country-style atmosphere, giving it back to the people of Kalaheo and greater Kauai to enjoy once again.

BEST CALAMARI APPETIZER HANDS DOWN!! They make the best vinaigrette dressing I've ever tried! Also, while you're there be sure to try the stuffed porkchop, you won't be disappointed! Their prime rib is another one of our favorites! The entire staff is friendly and attentive! Ask for Noe or sit at the bar with Shelby. Don't forget to get their bread pudding for dessert!

Off the beaten path, locals restuarant.
Best Stuffed pork chop i have ever had !
Beats Ruth Chris at half price.
The steaks are excellent as well.
If you want an exceptional Steak or Chop and not pay resort prices, this is THE place.

Noe was fantastic! My wife cannot eat gluten and Noe was on top of which menu items were ok and which were not. She was responsive and made us feel welcome. When you go to KSR, ask for Noe!
Paniolo burger was fantastic (fries were a little underdone, but minor). My wife said the stuffed pork chop was probably the best she ever had. It was delicious!

We have been enjoying this restaurant for years but this recent encounter was the best experience by far. Noe, our hostess & sever was a delight. The country-western music playing in the background was a wonderful backdrop for the rustic charm of this Kauai gem.....and then there was the FOOD! Fresh Hebe (spearfish) was prepared to perfection! Oh, and did I mention the steak? Our meals were so good we shared them. If you have never dined at Kalaheo Steak & Ribs, do yourself a favor and GO!

This is a wonderful local family restaurant. Food is well prepared and good. It is away fro all the resort locations, only 5 miles west of Poipu. Definitely worth a visit. Service is very warm and friendly.

We were a group of nine and I was the only one to complain.
My prime rib was raw, tough with gristle and full of fat.
Fabulous music.

Kalaheo Steak and Ribs is the perfect place for a relaxing meal with friends or family. The food never disappoints - the service is always top notch. Restaurant is always clean - the decor is wonderful - with a "Paniolo" Hawaiian Cowboy theme - vintage local photographs. Thank you to all the staff for creating a wonderful gathering place for your community. Aloha!

We ordered appetizers and the salads for our meals came first. Service was horrible. We kept having to flag a wait staff person down for just about everything. Very very slow. They were out of filet mignons? So, we ordered other steaks. But we didn’t get any steak knives? Service was beyond bad. This is my second time there (and I’m from the mainland) in 2 months. Quite possibly my last.

Located in the little town of Kalaheo on the Emerald Island of Kauai, this neighborhood spot offers very good food at reasonable prices. The pork chop stuffed with Parmesan cheese atop a bed of potato and bell pepper hash was truly outstanding. Great service and a full bar that celebrates happy hour everyday from 4 -6pm. We were the only "tourists" in the restaurant -everyone else was local. About a 40 minute drive from Kapaa.
