A little hidden from the main road, but once you find it you will be where the best steaks in Hawaii are served. That coupled with outstanding service, especially if you're lucky enough to get Lilia as your server, will provide you with one of the most memorable dinners in Hawaii. Get there early so you can get a window... More

We asked our front desk associate for a good recommendation for dinner and she suggested this place. It was a great. It's located near our hotel and right on the beach. I ordered filet mignon and lobster with a baked potato and my steak was cooked to perfection, the potato was great and the dinner comes with a trip to... More

My fillet was tender and flavorful but that night I became very ill with waves of severe nausea, close to vomiting. This morning I am finally starting to feel better. I suspect food poisoning from the salad bar.

Average food. My teriyaki steak was fair, and it came with a large scoop of plain white rice....nothing else. Ambience is low.

Wow. This was an amazing find! The food was delicious! I had the teriyaki steak and my husband had the steak and lobster. The meat was cooked perfectly and wonderfully seasoned. We both love steak and are kinda picky about it and this exceeded expectations! Highly recommend. Cost was on par with island dining.

We went there with 4 friends and all enjoyed our meal. The friends had all been there before and were frequent guests. We all loved the salad bar, and the main course was just as good. Nice relaxing atmosphere, good service, good prices.

A trip to Kauai would not be complete for us without an evening at The Bullshed. We enjoyed a perfectly cooked New York Strip steak and the bountiful fresh salad bar along with great drinks. With the ocean view (and the luck of seeing a sunset rainbow!) it just doesn't get any better than this for a wonderful vacation memory.

This was the only fancy restaurant we went to. It was a good choice. I had steak and the salad bar and it was very good. A perfect medium rare as ordered. Wife had a salad and a baked potato.

This is a steak place, no seasoning to overpower the meat, just true flavor .. the only odd thing is you sit in the bar first get a beverage and then they cash u out before bringing you to your table for the actual dinner.. seemed very odd.

The Bull Shed is excellent for happy hour and dinner. Happy hour starts at 4:30 and has reduced drink prices only, with limited pupus available. Restaurant seating begins at 5pm. Go early if you want ocean view seating - reservations not available for parties of 6 or more. Salad bar comes with all entrees. Steak was great, as was the... More
