We were staying close by and arrived very late in the afternoon and were looking for some place for a quick, inexpensive, and filling meal. This little place fit the bill perfectly. We both had the catch of the day sandwich, which on this day was grilled Ahi tuna. Have to say, it really exceeded our expectations. It was both... More

The food is pretty so-so here and just didn't look that clean. Burger was good and coconut cream pie was too. Fries and taro fries, not too good. Fried down to crunchy chips. Ketchup looked and tasted about a million years old. Good for Kauai, anywhere else, I'd probably pass.

Sat upstairs with beautiful ocean views. Wife had burger and I had mushroom omelette. Both good, very nicely done, quick and priced right!

The Hut is easy to miss...but do not. The vibe is easy going, order at the window and take your meal out to the benches in back, with a breathtaking view of the ocean. And the food is both great and provided in ample portions. The Portuguese sausage omelette is exceptional and the fresh french toast is also a fave...

Amazing Portuguese Sausage sandwich. Wife and I ate here twice during our week on the island and by far the best breakfast we had. This place is perfect. Not fancy but really great and reasonably priced food. Taro fries are a must as well. Enjoy!!

We loved the burgers and fries from this place. The restaurant itself could have been a little cleaner but the view of the beach was great!

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
