One plate came late. Everyone else were just about done. It happens, but that was the only thing that went wrong. Everyone was nice and hospitable

The children’s rib dinner was a large, and tasty, serving. The filet minon was tender and also very good. Nice atmosphere and great food.

Excellent service by Tracey and team. Very good wine choices. Free bread pudding a nice gesture. Only complaint was steak was over cooked.

On a recommendation from a friend who lives on the island, we gave it a try. The rib-eye was probably one of the best I’ve had. The steak was cooked to perfection with the steak still juicy half way through. The server was pleasant and accommodating. The ambiance was great, with some good country music playing. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Meatloaf was not the same when order it on Saturday. Was very disappointed. That is way we wanted to come back. Would never come again nor recommend the place. We may recommend the place to POTUS supporters.

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.

We were seated right away. Service was prompt and efficient - water, bread drinks, Salad and main course. Each offering was wonderful! I’m looking forward to returning as we found more we want to try!

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.
