We decided that we wanted a nice dinner. We booked the Kalahoe Strak and Ribs. Three of us had Prime Rib and one had chicken piccata. Everyone was super happy with they dinner. The prime rib looked a little thin when it was delivered but was filling for everyone. A great place away from the resorts with mostly local folks.... More

Steak sounded good after so much fish, which is what drew us to this place. Older, little funky building, but clean and nice inside. Service was really good and steak was very nice. Baked potato, asparagus and dinner salad, plus bread. Had enough steak left to make two sandwiches the next day to take on the plane home.

We arrived in the middle of a downpour, in what we heard was the worst weather all November. The waitress greeted us (before we sat down) with an apology, that the weather was so bad the fishermen hadn't been out, so there was no fish today, did we still want dinner? Of course, that told us this is a place... More

Kalaheo Steakhouse was recommended by a friend who lived on island for years and we felt like a good steak after eating fish dishes all week. Well we still didn't find good steak. Our filet was burned and my rib eye had been sliced so thin it made it tough. The baked potato was undercooked but the veggies were ok... More

I was really hoping this place would be better. It was good...but just good. First off, it's an odd ambience that you'll find in this restaurant. The area downstairs where the live music is...well...just kind of like a cheap bar. So even though there was live music being played, we avoided eating dinner down there. Upstairs it is more like...

Found this place on Yelp because someone in our party wanted steak and we wanted a more local type of restaurant. Great service from start to finish. We were told that the restaurant had gone downhill and is now under new mgmt/owners and they are trying to revive it. Two in our party had steak which were "good", one had... More

We chose this placed based on the menu in trip advisor. The menu is not accurate and we decided not to stay. The staff was very nice though and if we had found something we were interested in on the real menu we would have stayed.

Last time we were there was in 2013. We stop there everytime we are in Kauai. It is like a Island steakhouse with very good meat. Reservations by all means.
