The Omni Hut is probably the longest serving Restuarant in the Smyrna area. It was started years ago by an Air Force family stationed at the Seward Air Force Base in Smyrna. Always serving excellent food, soups, and salads. The rib tidbits are a must when you dine at the Hut!

We love Omni Hut for a special night out. Most of my family enjoys getting the big Tahitian feasts with a variety of finger foods on a flaming thingie. I prefer the Chicken Ono Ono. Salad is fine. Soup is good. Our favorite is the mushrooms; we fight over them. We always take guests if we want to impress :)

This is a must when in the area! My sister took us there the last time in Smyrna. The story about how the Omni hut got started. You must include the ribs in either a combination dinner or as an appetizer. So worth it !

One of the best aspects of the Omni Hut is the vintage, Polynesian feel of a restaurant that has been successful for decades. The interior remains as it was forty years ago but that certainly adds to the charm of this family owned gem. The food is quite good with lots of unique choices. The shrimp panamanian and Polynesian pit... More

This is a rather unique place to visit, about 40 minutes from Nashville. It opens at 5:00 PM sharp and there was a good crowd there for a Tuesday evening. I asked a local in line with us if you needed reservations and she said maybe on weekends. We were greeted and seated promptly. Service was friendly, prompt, and professional... More

We love Omni Hut - the ambiance, the service, the fruit tea - it's always a huge hit with guests who are in town. The food is pretty good - but the appetizers are fantastic. Note that Omni Hut is BYOB. For a fun night, make a reservation, grab some friends, bring a bottle of something to spike the fruit... More

Overall a decent restaurant. The packed parking lot and 30+ minute wait told me the place was going tom be great. Ehh. It was nice to experience once, but I do not think I'd go out of my way to go back. Mediocre food, missing a few favorites. My wife and I shared the Tahitian Feast at $22.50 a Person.... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants! The 70's Hawaiian/Polynesian atmosphere is relaxing and enjoyable. The Hawaiian music, the saltwater fish tank, the Hawaiian decor, the water fountain in one dining room, the women in muumuu dresses, and the appetizers with fire make for the perfect atmosphere at Omni Hut! And the food is just as awesome! It has lots... More
