Sam's Ocean View
Moonlit evenings and beautiful brunch views, Sam's Ocean View has it all!
Had a wonderful brunch on Sunday. Service was very friendly and the view is fantastic.
Our Pacific Oceanfront table with a view of the moon was exquisite. Thank you Sam the owner of Sam's Ocean View Bar and Kitchen in Kapaa. We had a spectacular dinner of Parmesan crusted fish of the day Opah rich and delicious and Mahi- Mahi Fish and Chips superbly prepared by Chef Bodhi. Martini top of the line and wonderful wine was delightfully served by Jacob he was courteous and knowledgeable. Lily and Preston kindly served us homemade fresh bread with balsamic and olive oil dip and kept our water glasses full to the brim.
Sam’s is a hidden gem! The service is outstanding and the food is delicious. And the view..... you can’t beat it! Good quality, fresh food with that kind of atmosphere on the island is hard to find. We went back 2 nights in a row! Service was perfection! Abby and Jake were the best!!!! Thanks Sam’s!
Great service! The food was great!
Great place with fantastic view and delicious food. Staff are super friendly.... really nice.
We went back for the Parmesan Crusted Ono that we had shared and loved earlier in the week. We liked it so much we wanted our own portions. The fish was not as good the second time around. It was overcooked and sauce wasn't nearly as good. We were supposed to get bread before our meal and it was forgotten. When we mentioned the bread, the server just apologized and said they forgot but he let the runner know. It was too late to bring out the bread. We mentioned our disappointment to the server in the quality of our meal but there was no compensation.
Delicious meal- nice ambiance and outstanding service.
Great view, food was good. Restaurant a little out dated .
Great food, kind staff, put on a fire works display and everything for the 4th! Thoughtful touch to the evening.
We were so glad we chose Sam’s for our birthday celebrations although we will definitely go back again. Abby, our waitress, was absolutely fabulous friendly accommodating and very fun. We were there on the Fourth of July so it was a real treat having our own private fireworks right out front… Overall a very very enjoyable evening
We had gone there a couple of days prior and the service and food was fantastic. We even met the owner, Sam. However, this second time was not quite as delightful of an experience. We had a reservation, and the server was not attentive, and seemed to disappear at times, never asked if we wanted another drink--we received more attention from the guy refilling out water. The food was good, although didn't seem quite as good the second time. Still a great place on Kauai!
One of my favorite spots. Good food , great service and wonderful seaside view
Abby our server was very informative and attentive. 5+ service. Of course the view from our window table was fabulous. Excellent drinks!
Awesome food and views!
We had the poke nachos and local fish. They were so delicious! The drinks we got were great, and we came during happy hour so they were a good price. The views alone make this a place to stop by and eat!
Even though we noted in the reservations that it was a special occasion (birthday) nothing was mentioned by the server. Also, the shrimp pasta that was ordered made no mention of red bell peppers as an ingredient, so my husband has to pick them out. The ambiance is good and you can’t beat the location.
Excellent as always.
I cannot express how fresh tasting the food was and the drinks are top notch! You can tell the staff takes pride in what they do and make.
Great food and drinks. A bit pricey but good for Kauai ;)
Friendly greeting, delicious food, and excellent service! We also enjoyed the live music — perfect!
Boar sausage and cauliflower was excellent. Very good chimichurri steak and seared ahi.
Great location, great food and service. Overall great experience! Great ocean view.
Unexpected quality of food service and ambiance with ocean view. Would go again when near Kapa’a.
Amazing all around! Live music, great staff, great food, great drinks, fantastic view! Would love to return one day!
Gorgeous views, nice breeze comes through and great food.
We had a wonderful dinner here for our anniversary!
Food was good! Prices were a little high for the location!
Wonderful food, service and ambiance. One of our favorite meals ever in Kauai.
The food was fantastic and our server was so patient with us and graciously helped with menu suggestions when we asked. The view is gorgeous. We got lucky with a full moon lighting up the sky, but I imagine it is just as beautiful even without a full moon. Our after-dinner dessert cocktails hit the spot! We will definitely return on our next visit.
Went for an early Fathers Day dinner. This is one of our favorite restaurants in Kauai. Love the ocean view, ocean breezes and awesome food.
Gorgeous view and great service. Loved our brunch.
Birthday for Frank they made it very special.
Beautiful restaurant and view, all food was delicious. Great way to end our vacation, we will definitely be back!
The Panzanella fish with the monchong was so delicious. I could eat that any time.
Great place. Love the ocean view, love the food.
We We’re there for happy hour and dinner. Wish there had been live music though. Not happy about the people parking theirs cars right out side window seats and the guy out there pacing, talking on his phone and smoking while his infant child slept in car seat sweating. Oh well. Life. ???
It was great. It’s my favorite place.
Sam's Oceanview has an amazing view as it says in the name of the restaurant! We went for brunch on Sunday and everything on the menu sounded delicious/was reasonably priced. The owners dog is adorable and friendly. We let him while we waited for our table in the front area. Would highly recommend!
Excellent food, great view. Service was very good. Awesome experience!
