About Merriman's Fish House Kauai
In a casual yet elegant setting of an Old Hawaii Plantation, Chef-Owner Peter Merriman serves his unique style of Hawaii Regional Cuisine in Kauai's Poipu. A pioneer in the "Farm to Table" concept, Peter serves only the freshest products, at least 90% of which are locally grown or caught, using only sustainable methods.
Matt Anderson's Take
Merriman's Fish House is located in Poipu, in The Shops at Kukuiula. Like most of the restaurants by Chef-Owner Peter Merriman, this is casual yet elegant dining and big on the farm-to-table concept with only the freshest ingredients being served, locally grown or caught when possible.

There is a bar here with over 1,000 bottles of wine in their cellar. Expect good times and delicious foods with average to above average prices depending on what you order.

Definitely one of the more expensive meals we had on Kauai but the food is so good and the service was great.

I tried this recently added new item to the menu of Merriman's Fish House - Maui Nui venison. This product is from wild axis deer on the islands of Maui, Lana'i, and Moloka'i. Super lean and tender because the animals live low stress, predator-free on these islands. Two opinions for trying this - Loco Moco, $18 an appetizer that went great with a cold beer or the venison duo plates, $52.

What an incredible meal! The Seared Mahi Mahi was absolutely perfect, some of the best I've ever had. Service was great and the drinks are really good here. Somehow they even found a way to make the Mai Tai even better.

Hundreds of reviews from customers who seem to overall agree that Merriman's Fish House is worth a try.

The majority will rate Merriman's with 4 or 5 stars, noting the delicious foods and fresh ingredients.

Many agree that this is their favorite restaurant in all of Kauai.

Meals here can be a bit pricey as many will agree. Some feel its worth the price, a small minority feel that it's just overpriced.

A common complaint is the tight seating situation.
