Sam’s Ocean View Restaurant + Bar is owned by Samantha Reynolds. Sam was born in South Africa and immigrated to the US with her family at a young age. A US citizen, Sam has also traveled and worked throughout the US, South Africa and the United Kingdom, before settling in Kauai in 2013.  Sam has worked in the Restaurant Industry for twenty years in front of the house as well as behind the bar.  For the last several years she has been searching for an opportunity to open her own restaurant bar kitchen and create a place where she could bring people together for great food, drink, music and fun.  

During a short 2013 visit, Sam fell in love with the island life and beauty which is uniquely Kauai.  Thus began the journey to find "that spot" where she could combine the elements which create a lively, fun filled atmosphere for food drink music and fun. The renovation of Sam’s Ocean View has created a special space that allows the beauty of the pacific to shine and energize all that visit.
