Beach House Restaurant- Kauai

$31 to $50
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.

We always make it a point to dine at the Beach House whenever we are here, and usually love it. I’m sure the Pandemic has put a damper on many things, and recovery is difficult. That said, we found the menu way too limited, especially for my husband who doesn’t eat any seafood, but usually has found something that he likes to order. We both ended up having steak, he had the Filet, I had the New York strip. He was very happy with his meal, mine was just ok, the roasted potatoes were not good at all. This was an unusual occurrence, and rather disappointing. Our server, Kui, was excellent. Hopefully, the Beach House will get back to its former wonderful place where we can have a special evening.

Great food and service. Wait for a table was a bit obnoxious considering we had a table reserved for 1730 and were seated at 1754. Waitstaff was knowledgeable and professional. Glasses were never empty. Clear down was quick and minimally distracting. Balanced cocktails, if overpriced. The pot stickers were some of the best I’ve had. The main dishes were excellent. The Ahi was perfection. The steak was over cooked. Offered to refute but we declined. It was still tasty. They comped an appetizer without asking. Overall quite nice. Would go again.

Elegant food, unique cocktails, great view, attentive and friendly waitstaff a little noisy. Once you get past the hostess stand, which had a little bit of an attitude it feels like the place to be.

Worth the hype - one of the best (if not the best) dining experiences on Kauai. The food was out of control, the atmosphere is second to none, and the service was super professional. Will return everytime back on the island.

We usually like everything about The Beach House but, during this visit our server was so disinterested that it really soured the entire evening for our adult family of 6.
My wife and I were celebrating our 33rd wedding anniversary and the hostess wished us a “Happy Anniversary” but, there was no acknowledgement of this from Warren our server. So different from our honeymoon dinner at The Beach House restaurant 33 years ago!
Also, the mandatory 20% gratuity for our party of 6 plus another 2% mandated fee for the kitchen was unmerited and unearned during our most recent visit.

The food is way over priced for what you get. Service was slow and unpleasant. The view was magnificent. Save yourself the money by going to the bar for a cocktail at sunset.

We had a lovely evening celebrating our anniversary at the Beach House. We had a 5:00pm reservation so when we were seated Just imside struggled with the setting sun and glare. Our server was nice enough to move us to a table that was not so exposed but still a great ocean view! The Monkeypod Mai Tai and Black Manhattan were a nice, tasty start! The pumkin ravioli was quite good. My husband tried the lobster deviled eggs and thought they were fine but not special. The arugula and goat chees salad proved to be a nice combination of flavors. For entrees we had the macadamia crusted Ono and seared ahi. Both were delicious, best we have had on the island!! Other ono preparations have been a bit dry and not as For dessert the chocolate tart was amazing! Stayed to enjoy the spectacular sunset! The service was excellent and attentive. Truly enjoyed the experience!! We will come back!

We got to the restaurant a little early and the front desk staff didn’t really seem to care in fact we were seated after the reservation time. The table wasn’t even set when we sat down and they kept bringing us utensils. My husband’s barely touched his meal and the waiter didn’t even question why and didn’t bother offering to take it off the tab. Overall I wouldn’t recommend booking a meal there with the exception of the beautiful view which becomes pitch dark pretty much after 8:00 if u wanna have a sunset meal book earlier in the evening.
