We drove into Lihue to try the Feral Pig, which happened to be closed that day for whatever reason. We hopped across the street to the Beach Hut and were not disappointed. Menu is small, mostly burgers and other misc items. You order at the window and seating is provided outdoors. Meat is all grass fed local beef, VERY tasty.... More

Dude who made the shave ice did it with love. Softest ice. Syrups were yummy and not artificial tasting (even though I know, it's syrup). Ice cream in the middle is a must. Burgers were good too but the shave ice is where it's at!

Went here with my family while visiting Lihue. Food is made quickly and even though you order from a window, the service is spot on. You have to go upstairs to eat and there isn't a whole lot of space. The burgers were excellent, I always order mine well done; and it was still juicy and full of flavor. The... More

We ate here for breakfast. Yummy. Perfect start to a day at Kalapaki Beach. Both locals and tourists seem to enjoy the place. Place your order at the window and find a seat. Open air dining. Easy parking. Short walk from the beach. Pancakes were $7.00 a stack. Omelettes, $9.00.

Spot on burger made with Kauai beef at a reasonable price. I got the aloha burger and french fries. One of the best burgers I've eaten from a walk up restaurant. Highly recommend for burger and pineapple lovers.

Compared to resort menus where a burger is ~$14.00 USD and an order of fries is ~$7.00; take the short walk over to the beach hut where a burger is about half the cost and fries were $2.00. Service was quick and efficient, the fully dressed, charbroiled burger was cooked well on a fresh bun, and the fries hot and... More

The Kalapaki Beach Hut is just that. A hut on Rice Street within steps of the beach at Nawiliwili Harbor. Over the past 10 days we have enjoyed breakfast sandwich (***), a Bacon Tomato Omelet (****), and an Aloha Burger(*****). Nothing fancy here and frequently can crowded with beach goers an locals who stop by. The food is good and... More

This place is great and reasonably priced. We had a great breakfast here. We loved the setting and seating. Also the staff is very friendly. Diane who works up front is so sweet and made us and our baby feel right at home. Couldn't have been a better experience!

Fresh pineapple, teriyaki sauce, a juicy burguer on a fresh taro bun! YUM!!! If you are on a cruise ship and just want to relax by Kalapaki beach... this is the best place to stop by!
