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.

The Beach House definitely offers a bang for your buck with the views, however, while the food was great, I would have preferred coming here for happy hour and a sunset rather than dinner. They recently reopened from an 8 month closure due to covid, so keeping that in mind, I'm sure the staff was a little rusty getting back to work. Overall, great views but pricey for the meal options.

The best dinner on the island. The filet was cooked to perfection.

Best restaurant on the island.

Appropriately socially distanced.

Set your reservation for 5-6 at night, and get there early to get a seat by the windows. When sunset hits you will not be disappointed. The filet’s are incredible, but the swordfish (daily catch I believe) was insanely good. Recommend very highly.

SO WORTH IT!

Waves gently crashing, a spectacular sunset, delicious cocktails, squash ravioli appetizer was a delight to our palates, macadamia nut crusted fresh fish was perfection as was the filet mignon. So very glad to return to the Beach House, and it reopened in time, to celebrate our anniversary. A perfect setting and perfect dinner to end our perfect getaway. Thank you to the staff for everything.

Ambiance and location is spectacular; even after dark. Our food was all cooked perfectly and beautifully presented. Josh was an excellent server that made a few menu recommendations based on our questions and took very good care of us. We will most definitely return.

The Beach House is always one of my favorite restaurants and it was lovely. Sitting right next to the ocean, even when it is dark and the moon glistens on the ocean, it is perfect!

We happened to dine here on their very first night reopening after 7 months of covid lockdown. As a result, they had a very limited menu which was slightly disappointing. I had checked out their menu online and none of the items I had intended to order were available that evening. We ended up ordering two order of potstickers to start, but they said they also ran out of them and could only give us one order. The food we did receive was good, but not as good as we had expected reading reviews and previewing they menu. Their location and ambience are outstanding, but we didn't feel overly safe. The bar was packed with no social distancing, and with very few masks. I'm hoping they find their groove as they work through reopening, but opening night was just OK.

We absolutely love the Beach House. As a resident it’s our favorite place to go. Warren as always was an exceptional server. Karen and Adam K served outstanding cocktails. Compliments to Chef Marshal and team for delivering an amazing dinner.
Our only concern was the close proximity of a 9 top party, related but traveling from different states. So close we heard every part of the conversation. They moved around their table on numerous occasions for photo ops without masks. Had no concern with standing next to other tables. They were really inconsiderate. Not an ideal seating arrangement with Covid on the rise. We just hope tourists improve in respect for others space.

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!
