Hawaii Regional Cuisine
Our stunning ocean-front location with spectacular sunsets makes the Beach House an iconic destination on Kauai's south shore that has won the Hale 'Aina Award for "Best Restaurant - Kauai" for 20+ years.

Our philosophy at the Beach House is simple - take aloha, blend it with fresh and high-quality ingredients, and add an ocean view to deliver a handcrafted, Hawaiian experience. Executive Chef Marshall Blanchard makes the most of local ingredients by sourcing our fish directly from island fisherman and our beef from neighboring ranches. We incorporate fresh and local produce throughout our menu, highlighting Hawai'i farms and the resources that surround Kauai.

Reservations are highly recommended for a dining room table in our open-air restaurant. We also offer lounge seating on our lawn, where the full menu and full service are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please check in with the bar host for lawn seating.

    We came early to see the sunset and got a gorgeous seat on the grass with drinks. It was stunning!! Then our seat was a perfect seat on the covered patio with a view of the ocean and surfers. We each had a lobster egg- yummy! Then two beat salads and one lobster bisque. The salads were fabulous, the bisque was a little fishy and bland. Then two filet mignon which were perfectly done and one with mahi-mahi which was also a treat. The red chard was overcooked but the mashed potatoes were very tasty. We had a Devine coconut crème broullet and a delicious lemon pound cake for dessert! It was all together a fantastic dinner. The price is not for the faint of heart but we’re in such a beautiful heavenly place for a once in a lifetime dinner. And they comped a glass of champagne for our 45th anniversary. Pretty classy!!! The service from Ari was perfect too . It couldn’t have been better!

    This hostess doesn’t mess around with their late policy on their reservations!! Doesn’t matter if you tried to call and no one answered. We showed up 18 minutes late, waited to get to the hostess and as expected we fully understood we would be put in a holding pattern for a table. No worries. We waited 40 minutes. And then get stuffed in a back table next to a party of 12 by a kitchen entrance. Hey, I’m on vacation, no worries, are there any other tables, we can wait? “You are going to have to wait another 30 minutes for a table, you are welcome to a seat at our bar (no seats), I have to seat my 730 reservations.” Out of curiosity I looked online and, I could book a 730 reservation for two!!!!! Imagine my surprise. In summary, willing to adjust but you can’t be rude and dismissive to customers. I’m standing in front of you, but it seems like you just want to go out of the way to not have us as a customer tonight. No worries, plenty of other great restaurants in Kauai!

    4 of us (2 couples) went for dinner. Great views and great service - never felt rushed out. We did sharing plates without any problem - only thing would say is they could have split the plates when brought out as we had to split ourselves onto smaller plates provided. Not a problem in general apart from the soup :) Would recommend

    The view of the Surfers tonight was awesome! Large waves more than made up for the cloudy sunset. Great food as always, I had the Hawaiian fish special and my husband had the Ahi steak. I tried the homemade Ginger beer and loved it. It is spicy with Cayenne pepper so be aware, but I loved it.

    Poor table location ruined our dinner. They wanted to seat us at a table where the sun was already right in your face and very hot. We asked them to move us to a table that had a shade but they wouldn’t give us that table.They instead moved us to a table that was not currently in the sun. We had no idea that when the sun rotated in just a short time that we would all be directly in the sun light and be burnt to a crisp. Why would you move our party to a table that you knew would be even worse than the first table. This is a very nice restaurant with very good food but they blew it by making us feel like they really didn’t care that we were suffering. Our waiter did try very hard to make us feel better but the manager did a poor job. Bad customer service really made me feel like she blamed us for the situation.

    Obviously it is about the location. The lobster that came with the pasta was tough. The macadamia crusted fish was good but the filet was ok. Hostess didn’t seem to care i made the reservation over a month before Mother’s Day and was willing to wait for a table next to the big windows or at least in the main dinning area. Ended up on the corner patio in the bar area. Not want I wanted and i should have been more insistent about what was originally requested. .

    I highly recommend The Beach House. Our dinners and dessert were delicious. My husband had the seared scallops, which were perfectly cooked and seasoned. The broccoli was scrumptious. I had the Fish & Lobster Pasta. The sauce was amazing as well as the seafood. We had a chocolate tart for dessert…Yum! Our waiter was terrific & the sunset views AMAZING!

Our server was an absolute doll and was so attentive and genuine…I feel awful that I didn’t get her name. Sunset is spectacular here and it’s a popular restaurant so book your reservation well in advance…..you won’t regret it.

    Service is always great. Some preparations were good but the fish (Ono) was dry (over cooked) and flavoring was just not present. To be fair we should have sent it back to give them another chance at it but have had similar meals here in the past so we just let it go. We have visited many times and experience has been about the same. Go for the ocean front and drinks. Food can be inconsistent . . . therefore don’t have the expectation that Peter Merriman’s personal ability and standards will be communicated thru the hands of the chef that is cooking that night. I will always recommend because it is a wonderful location and drinks don’t require a lot of finesse. Sometimes the food is actually quite good. We will always return and hope you enjoy it. Have an extra Mai tai and all will be good.
