Sam's Ocean View
Moonlit evenings and beautiful brunch views, Sam's Ocean View has it all!
Got there for dinner at opening. Took forever to get drink orders. They were waiting on bar crowd. Told them when we made reservation were celebrating my husband's 75th birthday. They did nothing. Small portions big price. Would not go back or recommend.
Sam’s Ocean View is always a Must Do when we visit Kauai! We love the food, service and the view!! I ordered the traditional Mai Tai which was perfect! We enjoyed the Crispy Cauliflower for an appetizer which was so perfectly delicious!! I had the fresh catch -Opa- Parmesan crusted which was fabulous!! My husband enjoyed the light and flaky fish and chips which was Mahi Mahi! So very yummy!! Great and very attentive service! Such a wonderful restaurant!! Until we meet again! ❤️
We were seated quickly and enjoyed a delicious meal. The service was perfect as was the ambiance. It wasn't too noisy, which was nice.
We LOVE Sunday brunch at Sams. I got an omelet with smoked salmon, bacon, and onions. Delicious! My husband enjoyed the pancakes. Good thing we had chosen a table for 4 because 2 friends joined us to have brunch and enjoy Sams unparalleled ocean view. Our server, Derek, was attentive and accommodating. More staff showed up to help out with water, seating our friends, clearing, etc. All were friendly and efficient. We felt welcomed and well cared for.
Absolutely amazing experience! Wonderful food, ambiance, and service. Best dining we had on either Maui or the rest of the island!
One of our best meals on the island. Absolutely perfect!
Delicious food and a great atmosphere. The parking can be challenging, but it's entirely worth it!
Loved everything about this place! We came for the poke nachos and they did not disappoint! The meal was perfect all the way to dessert, service was spot on, and ambience was great. We will be back on our next trip
Sam’s was the best meal we had in Oahu or Kauai. Loved meeting Sam and her team as well as her doggie BFF. Great hosts, great drinks, great food, and great ambiance. It is a bit noisy but adds to the fun if you have a larger group. We were there as a couple and were waited to be seated after our reservation time for a perfect ocean view table. Way to go Sam and Team! Love from Daufuskie Island, SC.
All real nice ingredients made into cuisine by a good chef
And even croutons in salad were highlights
Have a Kaua’i Mai tai
We made a reservation here for Sunday brunch. The atmosphere was relaxed and the food was good. Our server was pleasant and attentive without any rushing. It's no much to look at from the street, but don't let that put you off, it was a nice meal with a great view.
Good happy hour. We found easy parking. Dinner was good. Price was fair - remember this is Hawaii. The small plates were actually bigger than expected. Poke nachos are very filling. Great service and ocean view. We would definitely return.
Our favorite dinner on Kauai! So happy with the outstanding gluten free options. Our server was lovely and the open air, ocean view with live music simply cannot be beat. Thank you guys!!
Beautiful spot and love the selections on the menu
Good service, great view. My steak was overcooked but they offered to replace it. Early bird special on web was not provided until was asked for it. Seems like this is the policy but a bit awkward. Ocean view is the high point.
Service was awesome, our waitress was super attentive. The ambiance is really cool and the restaurant is right overlooking the ocean! The food was good - not amazing but definitely good. Felt overpriced but overall it was a great experience.
Beautiful location, great food and good service!
Fantastic for a special Mommy/daughter date 👍
Great food and a great atmosphere. Everyone was very friendly, and the food was really good - everyone in our group loved the food they ordered, and all 6 of us ordered something different. We came too late (7 pm) to see the view, but the windows were open and we could feel the sea breeze.
Loved the view and the brunch omelets. And we had excellent service
Good food, excellent service, outstanding view
Great place with peaceful view of ocean. My Parmesan crusted fish was tasty. Service was very good. Oliver’s fried rice was delicious - would love the recipe
We made early reservations and were seated at the open air window with ocean view which was lovely. The atmosphere is like a combination bar/restaurant scene and was moderately noisy which did not bother us but if you're looking for a quiet, cozy spot, this isn't it. Tables are fairly close together, too. Our server arrived immediately to take drink orders and drop off a basket of warm bread. Three of us ordered seafood: Arugula Salad with grilled shrimp; Risotto with Scallops; and Grilled Opa with sides. All three meals were delicious and attractively presented. The fourth person in our party ordered Eggplant Parmesan and did not find it to his liking. I would definitely recommend Sam's Ocean View for local fresh seafood entrees.
Awesome food, great service, loved the happy hour specials. AMAZING view! Highly recommend.
The food was very very delicious! The service from Bella was awesome. Very cute restaurant love the signs and decor. Great place for a hot date!
A wonderful place with a great ocean view to go with a great meal, worth every penny of the cost. The one down side is that there is not much parking available at the location. So, if you have a later reservation, plan to find a parking place nearby and take a stroll to Sam's. It is also worth the walk.
Loved our dinner here. Was a small local restaurant with excellent food and service in a nice setting.
We like coming here. The view is beautiful as is the ocean breeze
We felt the grilled cheese was very great
Beautiful peaceful setting, open air to nearby beach, food excellent, server prompt and knowledgeable about menu and drinks....desserts also something to look forward to!!!
Nice service, great people. The food was “ok”, just not much flavor. I had the pasta with basil and tomatoes, my wife had fish. Good wine too. It was evening so no view of the ocean but during the day must be awesome because of it’s location. Full bar.
Great service and food. Wonderful view.
Perfect service and great view. Go before 5:30 to get a window edge seat. Get the Parmesan Crusted Opa!!!
Wonderful experience! My husband had the fish special and I had the Parmesan crusted fish - both fantastic! Waitress was attentive and informative, all staff friendly and helped each other out. We enjoyed a solo guitarist singer playing some classic easy rock tunes which was super enjoyable but not so loud you couldn’t still have a conversation. LOVED IT!!
Awesome dining experience! Great views, fantastic food, exemplary service & amazing entertainment! The guitarist with his velvety voice singing 70’s & 80’s rock was over the top good!
We had a lovely time. The view was spectacular! Our waitress was courteous and helpful. We didn't feel rushed. We enjoyed some happy hour time that flowed into a relaxing dinner. Mahalo!
We had friends in from out of town and we love Sam’s they treated us very well and our guests loved it thank you so much
The Wagyu beef burger was awful. I asked for medium rare and it was well done. Dry and tasteless. Not worth the $$$ at all. The fish sandwich was also dry. This was the worst meal we had in the 10 days we were here. Great view and our server was great too. Too bad the kitchen (which had like 10 people working in there) does not know how to cook.
We went there to celebrate our birthdays. The view is spectacular. The service was great. Everyone there was friendly, informative and very nice. The food was great. I believe Sam’s has become one of my favorite restaurants.
Food was okay, service was good, view was gorgeous.
Great ambiance with live music. Great Food. Good service. Make reservation in time to make zure you have a table with Ocean view
