What a beautiful place to watch a Kauaii sunset. Not a bad seat in the place to watch. The food was excellent and the staff was very helpful. Would definitely go back.

Reservations are a must. The location is so perfect for sunset. It is directly on the beach. The waitstaff is quite attentive and the dinners were excellent. After eating lots of delicious seafood elsewhere, I decided to try their filet mignon-which was superb! Their majestic mai tai was also the best but the orange martini was disappointing. We went after... More

We went at lunch. Spectacular view! (If you want to go for the sunset view you'll need a reservation). Calamari was excellent. Roasted corn sea chowder was really good as well. Fish and chips and chicken mango wraps were good. Service was great! We will definitely go back ...and make a reservation.

Probably one of the most perfectly located beach side restaurants in Hawaii. We first tried it four years ago for my wifes birthday and have been back several times since.Excellent food and service. Be sure to make your reservations early and specify a table that allows you to watch the magnificent sunset.

For a sunset dinner, this was a great place. The food was well prepared. Everything was nicely good, but nothing was exceptional. There was a nice lawn between the restaurant and the sea wall where the kids could run around as the adults finished their dinner. The view and sunset was wonderful. For a good dinner and a great sunset... More

We had dinner at the Beach House on our first day of our trip to Kauai. The sunset views are fabulous, and there are limited restaurants with this type of view. The food was good - we are foodies, so have high expectations for food. The food was tasty, but nothing special both in terms of offerings and taste. If... More

Personally I would go here for lunch, sit on the lanai and enjoy the food and the view. Parking is an issue with a public beach nearby, but worth the effort. The property is right on the ocean so the views can't be beat!

My daughter was coming to visit us and requested to eat at the Beach House. I had made reservations 6 days ahead and requested a table with a GREAT view of the sunset. We sat at the bar and 30 minutes after our reservation time our daughter went to check, only to find that somehow they thought we had already... More

We ate at the Beach House twice - the day before and the day of our departure from Kauai. We discovered it on our way to the Allerton Garden, liked it so much that we went for a farewell lunch the next day. I had fish and chips one day and a burger the next. Both were above average. My... More
