It has the best Mai Tai’s on the island. Great for happy hour from 5:30 to 6:30. It has amazing views and good live music for entertainment.

After reading many 5 star reviews perhaps my expectations were too high. The service was great. We visited with family and for the most part everyone was very satisfied with their meal: they all had a fish entree and/or appetizer. I’m not a fish eater...More

Merriman's continues to raise the bar on food and service esp at this Poipu location. Great service and fantastic seafood and sushi that melts in your mouth! Beautifully plated dishes and killer drinks coupled with the outstanding servers make Merriman's our fave in Kauia!

Over priced for the quality and quantity. Service was literally mediocre. They are right next door to Roy Yamaguchi's restaurant and they just can't compete. Prices far exceed what you get!!

Surprisingly good fish tacos at $19. The mango ice tea was also a hit. Daughter had the white pizza which she enjoyed.

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.
