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.

One of our ‘must do’s’ when we come to Kauai is dinner at the Beach House right before sunset. Food is amazing, the staff is unbelievable, and the ocean/views spectacular! Kayla took such good care of our family last night. I highly recommend!

We had ahi tuna (rare) which was excellent as was the filet mignonette (rare). Good wine list. Ciabatta rolls a little lacking in flavor. Chocolate cream pie was yummy!

Beach House is a must-visit location on Kauai. Arrive before sunset to watch a gorgeous sunset and an amazing sight as the local parakeets come back to roost in the palm trees right outside the restaurant each evening.
Their specialty Mai Tai is indeed special and worth trying. We found a few more toned down cocktails to be preferable on a repeat visit for Happy Hour the next day.
Dinners at Beach House are all memorable. The quality, handling and gentle seasoning of the uber-fresh fish and the complimentary selections of vegetables and grains or starches are just plain wonderful.

Ambience is amazing! Try to book a spot around time of sunset so you can watch it. I ordered the macademia nut crusted fish, which was okay. Fish was very dry. Would have expected something a bit better considering the price. My husband had the seafood pasta, which he said was bland.

Cocktails were fantastic. Macadamia nut butter fish was incredible - but the fish and lobster was okay, not great. Dessert menu was a disappointment, only cream pies. However, the sunset ocean views were gorgeous. Wonderful location.

I have been to this restaurant several times, but this time I thought the food was very poor. My fish was sitting in a pool of plain soy sauce. I could barely eat it. The dessert tasted several days old. I don’t think I will go back. Too bad, it is a beautiful location and our server was wonderful.

While the beef filet and ahi were perfectly done, the mashed potatoes were barely warm. Great flavor, but not nearly warm enough for the plate. Server was less than enthusiastic as well...made the experience less than memorable and gave us no reason to return. Many other options to choose from.

I’m so disappointed in this restaurant. We made reservations in advance of our trip to Kauai, confirmed the reservation the day before and still got a terrible table. We were sat outside facing the street and view of an exit. I confirmed with the hostess who sat us it was the correct table, she seemed oblivious and apathetic. There were open tables inside the restaurant but we drove down from Hanalei to look at the street. People who did not have reservations came in and were given great tables. Then we could hear a middle aged server keep asking a male server if he was going to do naked activities on the big island. There was a definite lack of experience and customer service among the staff members.

Very overpriced, small portions. I can forgive a lot for a great view, but they rushed us along so blatantly. I am not a believer in big American portions, but I left hungry. That's not reasonable.

We’ve been coming here every year for many years. They’ve reduced their menu first of all and my mahi mahi (their signature dish) was on the dried out side. It’s been much better in the past. Plus the rice was dished up with an ice cream scoop. Not great presentation. We had a better meal at Ruth’s Chris for less money. With all the places to eat I’m not sure we’ll go back.
