The location is great - best on the south side by far. But . . . That's what you're paying for. Menu offers several fresh fish, but neither the ahi or mahi mahi was done particularly well. Service was inconsistent, with exception of our waiter...More

Can't beat the Beach House hamburger for lunch, at $12, it's huge, with lots of greens and a great toasted artisan bun. Used to include a side salad too, but I think they took that off

Perfect location on the beach side opposite Lawai Beach Resort. Ideal spot to watch the surfers catch and ride the waves while enjoying terrific dishes, especially fresh fish dishes. Fish tacos are delicious and the Miso Glazed Catch was superb. Prices are fairly high. The...More
