Hawaii Regional Cuisine
The Beach House Restaurant's stunning ocean-front location with spectacular sunsets night after night makes it an iconic destination on Kauai's south shore that has won the prestigious Hale 'Aina Award for "Best Restaurant - Kauai" for 16 years running!

Our philosophy at the Beach House is simple - take some good old-fashioned Hawaiian hospitality, blend it with a Pacific Rim food experience and add an outstanding view to deliver an experience that delights all the senses. Our talented kitchen team makes the most of local ingredients by sourcing our fish directly from Island fisherman and our beef and coffee from neighboring ranches. We incorporate local fruits and vegetables whenever possible, and delight in being able to find new and innovative ways to use the resources that surround us on the Garden Isle. Our breads, buns, and desserts are all made from scratch in house and we proudly feature the works of renowned local artists throughout the restaurant.

I have been to the Beach House on multiple occasions and usually the food is exceptional and the service is very good. Yesterday the food was very good but the service is lacking. We ordered children's meals. When the brought out the children's meals the food was frozen. In a few minutes the meals were taken away. In about 5 minutes the server took the meals away. After about 10 minutes the meals were brought back to the table. Again in few minutes the meals were picked up. In about 10 minutes the children's meals were brought back. The food was now edible. The restaurant ended didn't not charge us for the children's meals. This didn't leave a good impression on their quality of service.

What a beautiful experience. We celebrated our two year anniversary here and couldn’t be more pleased. From the views of the sunset, the playful bar staff, the wonderful drinks, it was amazing. We arrived early and decided to watch the sunset from their perfect outside venue - beautiful. We then were seated at our table. Our server, Elisha, was above and beyond our expectations. Her presentation and fun bubbly presence really made the night for us. The food was fantastic - the lobster was sweet and succulent. The broth took you on a tasteful journey with every bite. I couldn’t recommend this place more. Go to The Beach House on Kauai for one of the most romantic and beautiful experiences on the island.

our food was cold, they brought the wrong order for my wife, and never brought our drinks we ordered. It was way too loud for an outdoor restaurant and too hard to hear others at my table

Always enjoy Beach House but was a little disappointed this visit with the noise level and maintenance of tables... big stains in the wood on the table. Our server was excellent, food excellent but it appears you are trying to accommodate so many people that you are losing your special atmosphere.
Also the red wine was COLD!

We love the Beach House and went twice during our week long stay. Our servers, Caleb and Joshua, were two of the best waiters we've ever had. The fresh fish is to swoon over. The view is the best in Poipu.

We celebrated Gary’s 85th birthday, everything was perfect! Our server was Joshua, who provided great service. When he described the menu, you could almost the food.
The food came out hot and perfectly cooked for a table of four.
The views of the sunset are stunning, but the views are great anytime are beautiful.
Thanks for another great evening. This was my fourth time to dine at the Beach House!

Pops our waiter was very helpful with selections and made the experience unforgettable. We ate at sunset and the view was amazing! This was our first dinner out on our honeymoon and would highly recommend it. Drinks, entrees, and dessert just kept better as the night went on. Photos of the sunset together was perfect way to cap off our amazing dinner.

Overpriced mediocre food, they tried to sit us in an awkward corner next right next to the bathroom and made a stank face when we said we wanted a different seating location. I'm sorry, I'm not going to drop good money on what was supposed to be a fancy meal only to be sat next to the bathroom. Honestly, I don't even know why this place has a table right there. The hostess then tried to pawn off the table on the next couple, who also did not want to sit next to the bathroom. The view was great, but that was about it.

Kristi was absolutely the best. She’s got hospitality figured out and is a truly great person as well. Took great care of us and made sure the fish was cooked to perfection. Moist and flavorful. We would go back just to say hi she’s so good......well and have something to eat and drink, those guys we’re pretty good too!
Fabulous team!

Beach House went out of their way to give my new wife and I an unbelievable last dinner experience on the island. Beyond the general quality of food (my grilled fish was the best I had on Kauai) and the cocktails we chose, our service was unbeatable. Brooke was a phenomenal waitress, taking time to answer our questions and understand the present food allergy, then to top it all off, delivered with our check was a handwritten note of congratulations from the team at Beach House. I can, and will, recommend this place to anyone on the island or visiting in the future - definitely a special restaurant.

We had a wonderful dinner with friends at Beach House. The Mai Tai's on the lawn were fabulous. Dinner was delicious. We had the outstanding butternut squash ravioli appetizer. For dinner we had the nut encrusted fish and the daily fish special along with a seafood linguini. The sauces on the fish were excellent and the fish was prepared perfectly. Our waiters Dexter and Pops were attentive, informative and fun. We appreciated the happy anniversary card. The lawn and the views are wonderful. It was a truly special, memorable evening.

Great food, beautiful view and excellent service at the Beach House Restaurant. My fresh island fish (striped marlin) with polenta and candied fennel was delicious, so well prepared and presented. The fish and lobster was also very good. The Watermelon salad was huge, and delicious, we could have shared it. I enjoyed the non alcohol drink menu - they were not too sweet.
