Sam's Ocean View
Moonlit evenings and beautiful brunch views, Sam's Ocean View has it all!
Birthday for Frank they made it very special.
Beautiful restaurant and view, all food was delicious. Great way to end our vacation, we will definitely be back!
The Panzanella fish with the monchong was so delicious. I could eat that any time.
Great place. Love the ocean view, love the food.
We We’re there for happy hour and dinner. Wish there had been live music though. Not happy about the people parking theirs cars right out side window seats and the guy out there pacing, talking on his phone and smoking while his infant child slept in car seat sweating. Oh well. Life. ???
It was great. It’s my favorite place.
Sam's Oceanview has an amazing view as it says in the name of the restaurant! We went for brunch on Sunday and everything on the menu sounded delicious/was reasonably priced. The owners dog is adorable and friendly. We let him while we waited for our table in the front area. Would highly recommend!
Excellent food, great view. Service was very good. Awesome experience!
I was part of a 7 person group who went here at the end of a 2 week vacation in Kauai. The location is amazing. It overlooks the ocean which is just what we wanted. The food and service were wonderful. Our selections ranged from fish to beef and all were flavorful with good presentation. The prices were reasonable ( according to Kauai standards ) , and it was the perfect meal to end our time in paradise.
We loved Sam’s. Great food and atmosphere. Would definitely go back.
We had a great time at Sam’s Ocean View! The service was fantastic! The food was great, and the views of the ocean were amazing! Highly recommend!
The best meal overall we had on the island and we had some great meals! The service was stellar - drinks great! Food impeccable and such a beautiful view and a fun place!
Great restaurant. Best server I’ve had in Hawaii. Beautiful view. Quality food.
Neighborhood and hidden gem! Take time to visit this great oceanfront restaurant. $5 Mimosas (4 flavors) during Sunday Brunch.
Great food in a beautiful setting. Live acoustic guitar enhances the ambiance.
Tough to park but well worth it
When told it was the 35th anniversary of our first date they dialed us up with a great table and positive vibe. Reasonable corkage and very solid food at an oceanfront table from just before sunset (looking east) to dark made for a sublime evening. We will return.
The view at Sam's is "to die for". We live on island and have been to Sam's many times. This was our first visit for Sunday "Brunch". I ordered the Eggs Benedict with Candian Bacon. The bacon was very, very thinly sliced and did not cover the entire english muffin. I felt the serving portion to be very light for the price. Short stack pancake was tasty but on the burnt side. Eggs Benedict with Monchong was delicious according to my partner. Service was slow, at 9am they did not have half and half creamer for the coffee. The view fortunately is awesome, so this is a plus and you can make a reservation to ensure not having to wait. Not sure if I'd do Brunch there again.
Requested seating by the window and received their best table! Food, drinks and service are top notch!
Reservation required. open air dining, complete with birds. Food good but nothing I couldn't make at home. Seemed to be paying for ambience & "local feel" over food.
Everyone liked their food. The service and the setting were excellent.
A very spirited restaurant with great ocean views! Open air seating. Bar is hopping! Service was attentive and appreciated! Live music enjoyable, food delicious! We were celebrating a special event, and although older in age than most patrons here, we enjoyed the scene very much! I would recommend to anyone looking for a good time and delicious fresh fish!
A very popular place
My shrimp was delicious.
Beautiful view on the beach
This is the fourth time we have been here in the last 6 years when we are on vacation and every time it’s good food with super nice service. It’s totally unpretentious high quality food in a cool laid back environment. We had two kids with us this trip and they are treated great and have great menus items for them. Great view great place, perfect for the Kauai style of vacationing.
Excellent view, nice staff, good food
Close to ocean, good price point, somewhat noisy, good food choices but uninterested server
Sam’s always pleases! Came back after 2 years and the food is just as fresh and tasty as we remembered.
We had a great dinner! Beautiful view and excellent service.
Excellent tasty food. Had the Cauliflower appetizer, fish prepared with Macadamian crusting--supposedly their best dinner dish, and several of their mixed drinks, also very good. Room is dated and parking is somewhat obscure, on beach side of road in Kappa--can drive through to other side of lot to park. Has great unobstructed view of beach, but room itself has seen better days--open bay windows (actually roll up garage doors), but that's part of the island ambiance. Service great. We ate early at 4:30pm, so not sure what happens later. Price is what most nice restaurants charge, it seems should have been less as the ambiance wasn't as nice as say the Beach House.
Perfect ambiance with a good blend of Mediterranean and Hawaiian styles. Very nice ocean view, nice people and good food. Loved it!
Food and Service and value are excellent. The parking on the rear street is horrible. The music played is loud and thumping like you would hear coming from a low rider car. The fellow diners were extremely loud. Everything you touched at the restaurant was sticky. The cons outweighed the pluses. I would not return nor recommend this restaurant.
Get the cauliflower pupu and the ahi nachos!
Delicious as usual.
Had a great Mother’s Day Brunch. The eggs Benedict was wonderful. The hollandaise sauce was spot on. My husband’s fish a chips made with mahi mahi was perfect. Rachael, our server was friendly and efficient. She did not rush us so our dining experience was very relaxed & enjoyable. Oh and the view of the ocean & coastline was the frosting on the cake.
Highly recommend this restaurant.
The views from this restaurant are awesome. Food at Sunday brunch was very good. Corned beef has made in house, good ratio of corned beef to potato. Vegetable quiche was tasty with generous portion. Only drawback is it is second floor with no operational elevator so not suitable to mobility challenged.
I visit Sam's every time I come to Kauai. Great location; great food; and really great craft cocktails. Food and drinks came out in a timely fashion and our waiter was perfectly attentive. Couldn't ask for a better dining experience.
Incredibly weak drinks, soggy fries, sliders were tasteless. Shrimp was good though.
Really nice preparation on the opah, parmesan crusted with potatoes and asparagus. Classic.
Very good service. Delicious food and a lot of nice drinks
Wonderful ocean view matched with quality food and service.
arrived early with a reservation and had a table next to the open-air window. beautiful view of the ocean and bike path. enjoyed the view and people watching while dining. ordered shrimp primevera and enjoyed every bite. coconut mai tai was delish too.
