Quick Eat - Good Burger

Stopped here late morning for some lunch after arriving at the Lihue Airport. The burgers were quite tasty and so were the fries. It's a roadside stop - seating is limited upstairs and we lucked out with parking.

The burgers were excellent. Tried the Taro fries--just not for use. Not a lot of taste to our liking --lots of salt used and sorry it didn't do much.

Overall had a good experience at Kalapaki. Some of the food was a bit greasy and all of the seats were pretty sticky. Reasonably priced and the great view of the bay!

Perfect burger joint. Ideal for lunch or a quick dinner (check the hours, they don't stay open late). The Aloha Classic is highly recommended. A big beef burger and large chunks of pineapple, covered with teriyaki sauce.

Just a small shack "hut" across the street from the harbor mall. Started our day with breakfast here. they were busy! Saw lots of food choices made that morning. It all looked so good! We ended our day by driving through here again. And stopped. Had to try the burgers. Awesome! The next morning before flying out, we stopped for... More

The food was good. We had a veggie burger with taro and a classic aloha burger. There are only a few seats. So be aware in case you arrive during peak times.

Fresh local fish, grilled up perfectly, and add the wasabi mayo, french fries, and you are set for the day! Take it up to the loft seating & watch the paddleboarders on Kalapaki Bay, or take it to go to the beach!

Wasn't bad wasn't good...prices were a little overpriced for the quality. It was convenient to our hotel and that was probably the only positive.

It was 3 hours until our flight out of Lihue, and we were hungry. What to do? Grab some terrible, overpriced airport food or seek a nearby fast food joint? Our trusty search engine pointed us toward Kalapaki Beach Hut, so off we went. Enjoyed some crispy and tasty fish and chips, not heavy or oily, and a bleu cheese... More

This is part of the Marriott resort so the prices reflect that. But is is a nice and friendly place to have lunch and a beer or a tropical drink while visiting beautful Kalipaki Beach. Very friendly staff (Sissy stood out!) and customers.
