At the Beach House Restaurant, they take all the best island ingredients and expertly create artistic drinks and dishes full of amazing flavor. With Pacific Rim cuisine as their focus, their offerings include delights like Poke Tacos, Furikake Dusted Ahi, and Filet Mignon plus fresh salads that are anything but ordinary. When you order a salad, you can expect it to come packed full of sweet and savory accents, like organic pineapple, panko-crusted goat cheese, and caramelized macadamia nuts.

To help take your meal to the next level, they have many types of wine, beer, and tropical cocktails on tap. Prefer to keep it alcohol-free? Look to their creative thirst quenchers, like the Lili-Koi Pond. This must-have drink features honey-lilikoi puree, housemade simple syrup, fresh lime juice, and soda to bring it all together.

Their menu changes often, so they can always take advantage of what’s in season and offer the highest-quality items year-round. They partner with local ranchers, fishermen, and farmers to source all their ingredients, and then dream up menu items that highlight all the fresh flavors. They go big on food and drink presentation, too, letting their artistry shine through every item that hits your table.

Although every item ends up looking like eye candy, the oceanfront view will undoubtedly compete for your gaze. Their location right on the beach along South Shore Kauai treats you to the absolute best ocean views around. If you time your visit right, you can even get to watch the sun go down and light up the sky in vivid purple, pink, orange, and red tones. Want to capture the moment forevermore? Just ask their friendly staff to snap your photo in front of your backdrop of choice.

Fan favorites on their menu include:

Lobster Deviled Eggs
You haven’t truly tasted the perfection of deviled eggs until you’ve had their Lobster Deviled Eggs. They create this appetizer by hard boiling farm fresh eggs and then mixing up their yolks with mayo, dill, and lime. Then, they pipe the mixture back into each egg half and put fresh lobster right on top.

Pumpkin Patch Ravioli
When you want a taste of all the best fall flavors, you cannot go wrong with their Pumpkin Patch Ravioli. This dish begins with slow roasting local squash, and then mixing it with goat cheese and spinach. The mixture lands in handmade pasta dough and cooks to perfection before getting toasted walnut sage pesto over each pillowy delight.

Seafood Linguini
For even more pasta deliciousness, you can treat yourself to their Seafood Linguini. To build this dish, they start by sauteing fresh fish and Kauai shrimp with roasted garlic and grape tomatoes in a sundried tomato white wine butter. Once that goes over the linguini noodles, they finish it off with a fresh basil chiffonade.

Slow-Roasted Local Beets
The Slow-Roasted Local Beets promise to take you on a culinary journey that’ll leave you feeling simply breathless. It all starts with local beets and butternut squash seasoned up to perfection and roasted until ultra-sweet and golden. After that, they pair it with tomato-cilantro salad, wilted arugula, and tempura broccoli for a flavor combo to remember.

As a full-service event venue, this restaurant lets you book their unique oceanfront dining area for your ceremony and reception. Just let them know your ideal date and time and they’ll get you on the schedule. Be sure to plan early, however, because they are incredibly popular year-round.
