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.

Food choices limited. Food preparation of moderate quality.
I’ve been here many times. Food quality and choices dropped.
Likely I won’t return.

Needs an update!! Felt very outdated. While the fish was excellent the sides were a bit lacking. The ice scooped rice was cold and lacked flavor.

We had a wonderful birthday dinner at Beach House. The view cannot be beat! And the food was terrific. The potstickers and , poke tacos were great starters. The fish of the day, seafood pasta and ravioli were delicious. And we loved the desserts, especially the chocolate cake and the lemon cake. Service was attentive. We highly recommend it!

Nice place, amazing view and good drinks but the food is overpriced for how basic it is. Feels a little tourist trap.

Ordered the linguini, which was way too salty. The filet and chocolate tart was the highlight of our meal and the service was great. For the money, it was definitely not up to par.

We have been to the Beach Club a number of times in the past but they have gone down hill some. It is a great location but the quality of the food was fair. I understand their higher prices with the location but the inconsistency in food for the price was not there. Service was good. I will try them again as hopefully they will get back in stride once COVID19 restrictions are reduced.

Have you ever gone to a restaurant and it seems like your waitress ignores you. She gives you the menu and you have to ask her for a drink before she walks off. Then it’s at least 20 minutes or more before she comes back? Your water glass has been filled three times and you haven’t placed your order. Well that’s how it was for us. The people that filled the water glasses and came and picked up our empty plates were very nice, we would’ve left them a tip but we didn’t want to leave one for the waitress because she wasn’t up to par. Happy Mother’s Day to me

Outstanding!!!

Our party of 4 had fabulous meals!!!
Filet - 5 stars!!! Husband said by far the best steak he’s ever had. Colorado angus beef prepared Sous Vide style. You could cut the steak with a butter knife.
Macadamia Nut Crusted Ono - flaky white fish with delectable hints of macadamia.
Beets- a plateful of colorful beets, squash, potatoes, and other veggies for a vegetarian delight!
Ahi Tuna - seared and seasoned with furikake, absolutely delicious!!
We’ll be back next trip to Kauai!!

Overrated. Food is average and overpriced. Tables with a “view” are blinding and boiling unless there is cloud cover until the sun sets.

The ambiance is perfect. The drinks were wonderful. The food was, well, small. Not one of us left full. The entrée salad with fish was the size of a side salad with three small pieces of tuna. The pasta dish was literally some boiled pasta with some parmesan sprinkled on top - nothing else. I so looked forward to going there. It was such a disappointment.

We sat under a tent and all of us were covered in little bugs
We found pooled water and showed it to the waitress. Not interested then we asked for manager. Who said most people focus on the view snd don’t mind the bugs. Two other sets of diners moved all of their food into the Resturant
We won’t come again

We had a reservation for over a month. When the night came, we were seated on a semi-permanant patio, with a wedding party next to the patio. I ordered the filet and was presented with a slab of Ahi, even told it was filet. Sorry people, if you charge what you do, these issues are inexcusable.

We have been to the Beach House many times… It is one of our favorite restaurants in the world. Service has gone downhill in a huge way. We still love the ambience and the food, but our server last time was horrible. We had to ask about specials, she forgot we even ordered our food, not friendly or helpful at all. Very disappointing.

Everything was great! We were celebrating our anniversary and it was ironic someone had planned a wedding the night we had reservations. Great food and sunset view.

Fish was over cooked and dry. Not worth the price. Drinks and sunset were perfect.
