Excellent Scallops! and I don't even like scallops, but I am from the prairies. They were to die for! Had the baby back ribs also and they were also delicious. Would have liked to go there one more time, but it was not to be. Maybe if I go to Kauai again. This restaurant only opens at 4:30 for happy... More

Lovely restaurant with ocean views and live music. Great service too. We had Rack of Lamb which was exquisite. Prepared perfectly with nice presentation. It comes with a trip through the salad bar. We will most certainly return on our next visit.

This old time dinner house has a lot of history and has very good food! I liked the atmosphere and the beautiful view! Very close to our hotel at the coconut palms Marriott

Got this as a recommendation, the prime rib is very good, but if you get it done less than medium let it rest on your plate for a few minutes as it is freshly cut. The salad bar is very good with a decent amount of choices including beets, peppers and other items you don't always get in a salad... More

When checking in to our resort, my husband asked if there might be a good place for Prime Rib. This place was recommended, he wasn't disappointed. They open at 4:30 but start serving at 5:00. They explain this when you get there, most sat and had a beverage before being seated. We were there early and were able to sit... More

We had a fantastic meal with great ocean views. You are so close to the ocean you can feel the spray from the waves. The waitstaff was outstanding very friendly and attentive.

This restaurant lags behind the current dining trends, with stale, formal seating, a single, central salad bar and an uninspiring menu. However, the food was delicious, and a generous portion. Wait staff could certainly do with an attitude fix - ours didn't seem to know a thing about beef. Yes, it has all signs of a steak house, but a... More

Remember those restaurants in the 70's with Prime Rib, Daily Fish specials, Steaks, baked potatoes and salad bars? If that's a good memory for you, then you'll like the Bull Shed, with the added attraction of being so close to the breaking surf in the back room that you may need to close the window to avoid getting salt spray...
