We were seated right on time in a nice booth in the lower section of the restaurant and had a righteous view out the side of the place. As the sun was going down, people started getting up and leaving their seats to go out towards the beach/water and have their picture taken. There were actually a lot of people about since, as I mentioned earlier, this is where people like to go to watch the sun set.
Something to keep in mind, my grand-pappy used to say that a picture taken of the sunset/rise in Hawaii must contain a palm tree or else it could be a picture taken anywhere. That said, there are a couple of palm trees on the other side of the beach that get beautifully silhouetted by the setting sun.
Food: oi… fantastic… absolutely fantastic. It was all amazingly presented and had incredible flavors. The service was also wonderful. The servers were there whenever you needed anything and were always right on task without hovering or being at all overbearing. We had a couple of drinks with dinner and then finished with dessert. It was all very elegant.
Will we go back? Almost guaranteed. It ranks very highly as a romantic dinner. I wouldn’t necessarily take my kids with me because I think a lot of the experience would be lost on them and I wouldn’t want to blow the bucks since the Beach House is in the higher cost range.
Attire should be reasonable. Don’t wear your swim trunks but you needn’t wear a tie either.

The food was excellent. We started off with the crab cake appetizer. Unfortunately, you only receive two crab cakes. It was very pricey for such a small amount. But we still had the rest of our dinner to look forward to. I ordered the seared ahi, and it was cooked perfectly. It came with mashed potatoes and spinach (I think). It was more than enough food.
While dining, I suddenly looked around the dining room and noticed most of the tables were empty. Everyone was out looking at the sunset and having their pictures taken by the waiters! It was an amazing sunset and our waiter came over to our table and asked if we wanted our picture taken. I thought that was definitely above the call of duty. There is normally a professional photographer that will take your picture at sunset for a price, but he wasn't there that night. The sunset/ocean views from this restaurant and great food truly made it a special evening.

The decor of the Beach House is frankly a bit generic, kind of like a mid-range hotel restaurant -- pretty, but bland. The food is good -- I had the famous macadamia-crusted mahimahi, which was fabulous, and the cocktails of the very-colorful-multi-layered-little-paper-umbrella variety. Our waiter was sweet and attentive, and helpful with suggestions on where to go out for a drink and some live music later that night.
All in all, worth a splurge on a special night . . . but very touristy and not at all off the beaten path!
