We have been going to Kalaheo Steak House for decades. We’ve never had a bad meal. I love the meatloaf and my wife likes the prime rib (available Thursday to Sunday). Order it medium rather than medium-rare as I find that it tends to more on the rare side here. We love the ambience. My father-in-law was a Wisconsin farmer who loved farming with draft horses, and I always think of him when I’m at KS&R. Great place. My only complaint is that I wish they had tap beer.

This is a quaint, old school steakhouse. The service was ok, not overly friendly. The salads were very nice, the poke was good very generous portion. I ordered the rib appetizer plate. The description indicated a 1/2 rack portion and I received 3 ribs, one of which was a very small end piece. Not terribly good value for the money. The garlic mashed potatoes were quite nice. The experience was fine, but not something I'd rave about.

The hostess is always welcoming & friendly. The ONLY waitress is incredible. She is soooo efficient. The bus boy/ waiter is equally efficient. They work well together without having to say much to each other. Food always good with good portions. Good wine selection.
We come to Kauai every year & always have at least one meal here.

We've never had a bad meal there. I Love the Prime Rib. It is my favorite. After dinner they have different types of music on the other side of the restaurant. You won't be disappointed.

The ONLY suggestion I have is that they offer a wee bit more lettuce with the side salad that comes with meal...especially since adding a bit more romaine to the Caesar shouldn’t break the bank. My husband took one look at it and made a comment. Everything else was superb though!

We enjoyed our visit! Our filet was super tender and yummy. Our baked potato was the best baked potato we've had in a restaurant in years! The salad was a bit skimpy but we shared, so even a big one might not have been too much! Our server was careful to keep her eye on us in case we needed another thing, which we didn't because she anticipated everything so well! We'll put this spot on our map for the next visit to Kauai!

We are in Kauai on vacation for a week. Was excited to try this restaurant after reading the good reviews. It didn’t go well. We were a table of 7. Our waitress was very nice as was the manager but it took an hour to get our food. When it arrived, the 2 steaks that were ordered medium came very well done and were tough. I ordered a hamburger with no jalapeño peppers and the aioli on the side. It came with aioli smothered on the burger with jalapeños on top! Unless they get a new cook, don’t bother with this place.

Nice local steak joint. Eaten there a few times over the years. Always seem to come back because of the value. My last dinner was good but the baked potato was hard. Couldn’t really eat much of it. The prime rib was tasty though. My wife was disappointed as they didn’t have any fish that evening though it is on the menu. Though disappointed She did have steak on her salad instead and that was also tasty.

Very disappointed with our waiter.....he seemed very distracted & was very inattentive despite it being a slow evening......As for food my husband's steak was very undercooked....also your bread portions very miniscule for four diners. It was our first visit and probably wouldn't go back.

We did not enjoy this meal at all. His NY Strip was raw, thin and a poor cut of meat. My filet was cooked properly but dry. The French Onion soup was a small cup of very salty soup with a slice of stale bread and cheese on top, not traditional French Onion soup that you'd expect. Neither dinner plate was hot. I wouldn't recommend this place or go back.

Two hour wait for food! They were very busy and it took forever to get our food. A lot of locals eat here and they really act like they do not need your business, and they probably don't. So if you are a tourist, this may not be the place to eat. Owner came by our table at the end of the meal and apologized for the bad service and gave us a gift certificate for $50 (which paid for our wine). But they really dropped the ball and we will never be going back to this restaurant again.

Not sure if there was a different cook but I've tasted better before. The sauces weren't creamy but more gelatin like. Dee made up for the cold prime rib but comping our desserts! Portions seemed smaller too...

We were really impressed with the quality and quantity of the filet. We also loved the ribs! Overall, a pretty good value for the island (little more than outback prices as steak houses go, but far far better) and definitely super tasty! Also a super precious little pooch works the lobby. We really enjoyed the food!

The mushroom appetizer was absolutely delicious. The steaks were cooked to perfection, they flavor wonderful, and you could almost cut them with a fork. We definitely recommend this restaurant. The rustic decor and the old pictures of Hawaiian cowboys was most interesting.
