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.

Awesome experience again, we love arriving before sunset and drinking a glass of wine while we wait for reservations. Food and service great just like last time. We will be back on our next visit.

Great location right on the beach! Busy restaurant! Food was good but not great for the price. Waiter was busy, but took care of us. I would go back just for the view and a drink!

Beautiful oceanfront restaurant. Food was good but I felt wasn’t worth the price they were charging. We got the potstickers and lobster deviled eggs for apps. I felt both was okay but definitely not worth $17-$20. My mans seafood pasta was also good but didn’t have the taste for a $35 dish. I got the Jidori oven roast chicken. That one felt worth the price of $38, definitely loved all the flavors of this dish. And the banana pie dessert was delish!! I would not mind the price if I felt the taste was worth it. Our server was definitely what made the place. He has always ensured he took good care of us. And after he told us we’re free to step outside after we ordered to enjoy the ocean setting, he found us and took a few photos for us. Thank you!

Amazing meal, one of the best we’ve had so far. Ahi tuna and seafood pasta were on point. We went for Valentine’s Day and got a drink before. Sunset is beautiful 🌞

It was Valentines Day and they booked a wedding party during the prime dinner hours 6-9. They were loud and drunk. It certainly detracted from the ambiance. The food was excellent and the service outstanding in the middle of organized chaos.

Disappointed in food and other aspects. I made the reservation five weeks in advance. Seated 30 minutes late. Noise was very loud, as they sat us near the big wedding they were hosting. The views are fantastic, but can't make up for the subpar food. Limited seasoning and taste to entrees. Coconut cream pie was worst I have had. Expected much better.

Great food and nice location. Had to wait 25/ 30 min for our reservation. I made it so we could enjoy the sunset and almost missed it.

Was so disappointed in our experience, had read all the reviews and was looking forward to a great experience. I would say it was ok, but certainly not great. Not certain I would give this high recommendations nor return again, there are other choices that are so much better

We made our reservation well in advance for a Valentine sunset dinner. Everything was going well until they sat us right next to a very loud, very rowdy wedding. their service people were going in and out right behind my chair. No view of the sunset because of all the guests. Other than that it was wonderful

A great location on Kauai for sunsets. This is a place to go for a romantic setting or special occasion. Homemade pies are great.

Service was top notch. The food was the worst we had while staying in Kauai, and the most expensive, ironically enough.

Arrived late, and it was Valentine's Day with a wedding going on, but service was the quickest we have received at any restaurant.

Food and location are excellent. We have went there every year for many years
... used to really love it.
It has gotten to well know and it sure seems they over book. We went twice in the last 2 weeks. Parking is a real zoo...get there REALLY earlier. They couldn't find the car after dinner...took about 45 minutes....and cars just kept coming in and blocking entrance. Wait Staff has always been well trained and great at explaining selections....they still are, but really have to rush to keep up. Finally...the noise is very, very, long. What a relief to get done and drive away.

The location is stunningly beautiful. The menu
Selections were limited. The prices are very high and the food mediocre at best. I would not return.

This was a fine enough place, really you are paying plenty for the view, hope you get a nice sunset. The food was also fine. We were underwhelmed, it was really noisy,we were there to celebrate our anniversary but couldn't hear each other.

I’ll start off with the fact that our waiter and food was amazing . My wife’s fillet was one of the best cut and prepared we’ve ever had .my fresh catch and lobster were also very well presented.because of some front end staff issues although we arrived on time and with reservations we waited 20 minutes to be seated and then at the back of the restaurant next to the bathrooms.although it was quiet and we enjoyed our meal and night out together I’ve always thought those tables were held back for non res .as I’d have loved to see the view that beach house is so famous for but again we had a great meal

We had a delicious meal on the ocean. Wonderful atmosphere, great cocktails, excellent service from Popps!! He was very knowledgeable about the menu items and had lots of tidbits about the island for us. A very enjoyable evening capped off with a special occasion card from the staff at the beach house.
