When you stay at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, you enjoy access to a variety of wonderful bars and restaurants. These offer many types of cuisine and vary in terms of formality, but all are worth checking out. 

Take a well-deserved break from your golfing adventures at the Residents’ Beach House, which is located near the golf course’s 18th tee box. This restaurant is also near the beach, so you can enjoy a stunning view as you relax with a drink and a delicious meal.

Visit during sunset for especially spectacular visuals. Guests have been known to spot whales from time to time, so watch closely for signs of aquatic life as you wait for your meal.

This is one of the resort’s more laid-back establishments, but that doesn’t mean you need to compromise on culinary quality. Everything served here is wonderfully fresh. Seafood is heavily represented on the menu, which features everything from shrimp to tuna and even clams.

The Residents’ Beach House accommodates visitors with a variety of dietary restrictions. Several menu items are designated as vegetarian or gluten-free. Any of the restaurant’s salads or pizzas can be adjusted to be gluten-free upon request. 

No matter your preferences for your appetizer or meal, you’ll definitely want to order a drink. The signature Big Daddy drinks are downright decadent, so don’t hesitate to sip on an adult beverage as you enjoy the view and the friendly atmosphere.

A few of our favorite menu items include the following:

Poke Bowl
Treat yourself to a Hawaiian staple. The Residents’ Beach House version includes the local catch, so its exact flavors will vary a bit based on when you visit. Still, you can expect wakame, watermelon radish, cucumber, and avocado, plus distinctive furikake rice.

Yellowfin Ahi Tataki
Blend the best of Hawaiian and Japanese cuisine with yellowfin prepared via a specialized technique. This may be a starter, but it’s impressive enough to function as a full meal when you want something light. Its memorable blend of flavors is made possible by micro wasabi, ginger, sea salt, truffle soy, and scallions.

Steve McGarrett Pizza
Indulge in a tasty pie that feels true to Hawaii. Named after an iconic character from Hawaii Five-0, this pizza is generously topped with kalua pig, Maui onion, and pineapple. It also features a delectable BBQ sauce. Any of the pizzas are worth trying, but this one truly stands out.

BBQ Jerk Chicken
Another great option for anyone who wants to skip seafood, this dinner entree is served alongside steamed rice, red beans, and, best of all, delectable Cajun sausage. Pineapple habanero salsa adds a hint of sweetness and plenty of spice.

Seafood Risotto
As one of the most satisfying options on the dinner menu, this risotto is loaded with all your favorites: clams, calamari, prawns, and the local catch of the day. The risotto also comes with Boursin cheese, Parmesan Reggiano, and cherry tomatoes. 

When you crave a view of the beach as much as you desire a tasty seafood meal, you can’t go wrong with a visit to the Residents’ Beach House. This Four Seasons Resort Hualalai gem serves all your seafood favorites, plus a few distinctly Hawaiian dishes that capture the essence of island dining.

Stop by for the cuisine and stay for the remarkable scenery. You’ll feel relaxed and at ease the moment you settle in with a drink and a smile.

Insider Tips:
-The Residents’ Beach House does not take reservations for lunch, so be prepared to wait if you arrive during peak hours. In most cases, however, it’s easy to get a table. Reservations begin at 3 pm but are only offered on the day of request.
-Parking can be a bit of a pain if you visit from an offsite location. You’re welcome to self-park in the lot, but be prepared to walk a considerable distance before you arrive at the restaurant. That being said, most visitors would agree that the exceptional scenery makes the short walk more than worthwhile.
