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...

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.

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!
