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.

We were pleasantly surprised with everything at the Beach House. In recent years we had noticed that the quality had slipped a bit. However, this evening they were back to their former spectacular food and service. This is a great place for a special Kauai meal.

Celebrated our anniversary at the Beach House. We arrived a bit early for our reservation and were seated immediately. Had a gorgeous sunset view with an amazing cocktail. The service was lovely. Friendly and low key. The fish was perfect. It was a bit loud as we were near the bar. Lovely night.

Very nice menu and location. I just felt the deviled eggs which were very good were way over priced or should have had mor lobster on them! Other than that we had a wonderful experience! The Mai Tai was very good as well!

Great experience. Had a small issue, told the manager and they more than made up for it. We felt very blessed to be enjoying lunch in such a gorgeous location. ABSOLUTELY MAKE SURE YOU GO WHILE THE SUN IS UP. The view is absolutely breathtaking, but completely disappears in the night.

We watched sunset while enjoying a bottle of red wine and dinner on the patio. Stephen made some great recommendations on food and some activities in the area. Seared ahi and the filet were perfect. Shared arugula salad with goat cheese and a light dressing. The evening was perfect.

The only reason I gave 4 stars for food was an arugula salad had way too much mustard dressing. Everything else was spot on! Delicious!The atmosphere was amazing. The best on Kauai. It was a fabulous dinning experience! It is our favorite restaurant on the island! Our server, Rachel was efficient and charming! Mahalo

We had been here years ago and, with the surf right there, it’s a lovely venue. Food was good but mine wasn’t very warm. Service very good.

The food was excellent as was the ambiance. When we received a check, we found we were billed for food we did not order or receive. We were never able to get it resolved for both couples. The server stated that he could not give us a bill for the correct amount because the computer would not allow it. I do not believe that. A beautiful evening ended with significant tackiness and disappointment.

As always, the food, service and ambience was outstanding. We visit Beach House first every time we come to Kauai. Our first meal here was in 1987!

Was disappointed that even after making a reservation weeks ahead, and to celebrate a birthday, they wanted to seat us at the two top by the hostess stand.... the second table was great with exceptional wait service.

We came for a 60th birthday party. Our waitress made sure every aspect of our dinner was great, from her knowledge and recommendations to the birthday treat for the group to finish off the night.

Sunsets here are the tops. Especially with their mai tai. Everything about the meal will be a memory for our Kauai vacation. The fresh fish and lobster were perfect, our waiter (Pops was great!) explained where the food came from (mostly local) and how everything was prepared. And the view was stunning. Will definitely be back!

We made a reservation for an hour before sunset and were happy to be seated next to the window wall so we would see it. Our server was excellent: attentive, knew menus, friendly, interested in our dining experience. Even though the place was packed and people were waiting for a table we weren't rushed.

Both our pupu choices were excellent, but a word of warning about the pork potstickers...the pineapple habanero sauce is hot. The arugula, goat cheese, macadamia nut salad went well with them.

My rare Ahi entree was well prepared. It was the largest portion of Ahi I'd ever been served. My wife was less satisfied with the fresh catch and lobster combo. The lobster was cooked perfectly but she thought the fish (can't remember the type) was fishy tasting and dry. We eat a lot of fish and we know some are milder than others; this one wasn't so much. But she likes to try new things.

When a manager stopped by to ask us about our meal she mentioned this to him and he immediately asked if she wanted something else. She didn't and explained it was just her taste, not the food. He was quite concerned, however. When we were finished with dessert and the bill arrived we were shocked to see that her $49 entree was comped. Our server said it was the manager's decision as they aim for everyone to be satisfied.

Would we eat there again? Sure. Very good food, excellent service even when very busy, and management that puts its customers first.
