Great eggs......with a view!

Ok, so if you are looking for a very good breakfast, maybe something to help with last night's drinking, this is the place. I am a protein guy, my wife is a carb woman. We make the ideal couple going to a place like this. I ordered 2 sides of 2 eggs (over easy). She ordered hash browns and... read more

I just had the most disgusting burger of all time at this place. I ordered Da Volcano because I love spicy food. The "sauce" they put on it literally dripped our and covered the carton they served it in. I know at least 1/4 cup of sauce ran all over the place. I would not recommend this place to anyone!

We pulled in to port on Princess Cruises and after walking around we found this place for lunch. The burgers were good. Fries were crispy. Service was great. Place was very clean. I recommend it.

Easy hop, skip and a jump from the Marriott. I had the Loco Moco which may be my favorite Hawaiian food. Rice, hamburger patty, fried egg, and gravy. Served all times of the day! (you can get loco moco everywhere in Hawaii, theirs is really yummy) On our last morning as we sat by the Marriott Pool, I decided I... More

Good place to grab breakfast or lunch. You can eat downstairs...but I would take your food upstairs to the second level and enjoy your meal while taking in the views of Kalapaki Beach/bay.

Kalapaki Beach Hut is a very unassuming place. At first glance it looks like a dive but those are some of the best places. The food was good. Grilled to order and fresh. Don't expect gourmet burgers here, if you do you'll be disappointed. If you walk in with the expectation of good food you'll be fine. The best part... More

Don't let this lil shack fool you just because of the looks of it from the outside(looks deceiving as its small and run down in appearance.Truthfully if locals hadn't told us about this location we ourselves would've passed this by), it may just surprise you if you stop and give it a chance. Actually, It's quite the gem of a... More

Had breakfast here, the usual bacon and eggs, fried potatoes, coffee. Service is over the counter, and they call you when your plate is ready. Tables are rare, and most people eat standing at a greasy counter facing the parking lot, or 2 picnic tables. It had rained, and we had to ask for a rag to dry the table.... More

Yummy food, cute little shack on the beach! Fresh fish sandwich was amazing, hubby had the volcano burger which was also very good! Gal at counter was helpful. Sat upstairs and felt like we were in a tree house overlooking the action on that little stretch of Lihue.
