Family of seven, all very satisfied! The Ahi was better than ever! The kids menu worked and the adult choices were exceptional. The drinks were great too, and the wine selection was inviting and diverse. Kudos to the servers too!

Food and service... excellent. Portions and prices suck. Pay a lot for your entree and all sides are extra... understanding that is normal but very small serving sizes for the money. Scallops were large but only 2 on a large plate covered with cream corn......More

We heard from friends that Merriman’s was a must go to spot. We had dinner outside at their casual dining restaurant. They have an upscale restaurant too. Good food, great atmosphere and service. Try the Mai Tai with liliquoi foam on top.

We always make it a point to visit Merriman's when in Poipu. The upstairs fine dining area offers the best that the area has to offer and the downstairs "cheap and cheerful" area offers a great alternative when a lite bite will do. Any fish...More

We had really delicious food here, but it was way overpriced compared to similar quality at other restaurants (for example the Beach House). Service was OK, but a bit slow and overall we did not feel valued. At the prices being charged we expected more....More

We met our family for burgers and we weren’t disappointed. So far the best burgers on the island. Place has a full bar sort of looks like a sports bar and a lot of locals eat there. Fun times.

Yes but agree the top level is more fine dining and the children would be better suited to the lower levels. This was a lovely restaurant.
