We ate here twice in a week. We sat outside facing the mountains at sunset. Beautiful. We had the small burger, pizza, salads and pulled pork. All very good. Service excellent. Hostess was great- so accomodating.

Great area to visit after a day at the beach. There is an upstairs and a downstairs and each level has a different menu. There were gluten-free and vegan options available. Service was great as well.

Everytime we visit Kauai I insist to visit this restaurant. Since I have discovered the BKE burger,there is no burger to compare with. I love it. I like to eat it with a smooth mai tai. Service is good and the people are friendly. Wonderfull!!!

I am not sure why Merriman's is rated so highly by other reviewers and the yearly survey in Honolulu Magazine. We were 45 minutes early (due to misjudging the drive time). Although there were empty tables, we were not seated until 5 minutes before our...More

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.
