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.

Kalaheo steak house is more than just a steak house ( plenty for the vegetarian as well to be most happy!) it's a family owned restaurant that people know each another by name as one walks through their door. Friendly homey atmosphere cute little bar and many many old Hawaiian'a photos of long a go some over 100 yrs old.... More

We eat here each year and the value is excellent ! The only restaurant I know of in Kauai that serves a free salad with all their meals. Try the hamburger...a complete meal!

The decor is outstanding. Love the country feel of the restaurant. The service was ok. Our waitress did not refill my glass once until I had to ask. I did have another waitress that walked by once and refilled my ice tea. That was commendable! I ordered the Paniolo Burger....wow! This thing was huge. It came with onion rings and... More

Kauai is not all seafood! If you want a good beef meal in a fun, lively atmosphere, this is it. Quality fresh food, alert and caring staff.

What a surprise - stopping to check out a steak place in Kalaheo - forget about judging a book by its cover. Once inside, you are transported to knotty pine walls. Steak, ribs, and prime rib are theri specialty. The best on the island!!!!

We happened to be there during happy hour... More
