This review covers two meals (table service dinner and breakfast buffet) for my wife and i in January 2017. Dinner included a shared quite delicious fish (Opah?? or Red Snapper variant - all Hawaiian fish is fresh and excellent) and drinks late on our night of arrival. Great dinner and equally great service by Sharon (83479). Breakfast buffet several days... More

We are staying at the Marriott Beach resort so we didn't have to go far for this restaurant. It was a rainy morning so we were able to sit outside. The Buffet was available at two sections and no shortage of excellent food choices . I would certainly come back for brunch again.

We ate here for lunch, Happy Hour and dinners. The Friday and Saturday dinner specials were great - best beef ever on Friday with soup/salad bar and great king crab legs at the Saturday Seafood boil. The plate lunch was delicious. The Happy Hour Mai Tai's and appetizers were a good value.

We had snacks here and the food was good, for what it is, a poolside and beachside bistro. But this is Hawaii. I suggest the manager take a trip to the Royal Hawaiian or even to a local bar, to see how to make this signature drink.

Had a business lunch here - definitely recommend the Koloa colada! Probably the best drink I have had all week! (Only down side is the $12.50 price tag). Fish tacos were delicious.

Had a late dinner one night after arriving back at the hotel quite late after a long drive. Very pleasant atmosphere and great view of the ocean and the nice cool breeze. The service was very good and the meal quite enjoyable but quite expensive as you would expect. We were not rushed and the ambience was pleasant and would... More

We stayed at the Marriott resort for a week and enjoyed drinks here every day and lunch many days. This is a very fun, open air place directly on the beach. The staff are fun, friendly and attentive. The lunch menu is small but all items we tried were really good. Note, this is a casual place so don't expect... More

We are owners at Marriott Kauai Beach Club for six years. Sadly they ended our favorite meal (the prime rib and king crab buffet). I've never loved buffets but that one was great. Heard great reviews about the Friday night special of prime or pig or fish. We got the prime rib w mashed potatoes and salad bar. Salad bar... More
