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!

My husband and I ate here several times during our vacation in Kauai this past December. Being a vegetarian, eating at a burger hut was definitely not my first choice, but I was delighted to find that their veggie burger option (Taro burger) was AMAZING! I was happy to not only find something delicious, but was thrilled to try something... More

We were on KAuai for a girls trip. We ate at the "Hut" twice. Once for breakfast and once for lunch, The hut doesn't disappoint. I had a breakfast sandwich that was delicious.. The next visit was a burger for lunch, you would be hard pressed to find a better burger on the island. Love the hut and of course,... More

We ate there twice. Not cheap, but not overly expensive food, but good. The tarot burger is worth trying.

really enjoyed this place, the burgers are sublime, fries are addictive, cheap typical hawaian breakfasts, great staff, and you have a seconth floor where you have the view on the bay. Best fast food i had on Kauai.

Burgers are large & pretty good (average ~$9 for maybe 6 types of burgers. Fyi the Aloha burger,was suppose to have a pineapple slice in it but it was pretty much non-existent, maybe 1/8 inch slice of pineapple so not worth the extra $, just get the regular). Taro fries ($4.50) were tasty & came with a creamy jalapeno dipping... More
