Good view and great value

Fun little eating place next to the beach. Serves all three traditional daily meals, with loco moco available all day. Good fries and sandwiches. Pleasant wait staff. Limited seating, but upper and back levels have beach views.

We had burgers and fries at the Hut today and they were fantastic. In addition, the iced tea tasted like iced tea and the lemonade tasted like lemonade -- this is significant to us since after many meals on Kauai this is the first place to have tasty beverages.

We went here for breakfast and it was great! The prices are reasonable for the amount you get. The food and service were both great, and the view from upstairs is fantastic. Really fun place.

It doesn't look like much, but the burgers are great. My wife and I both had the Aloha burger with grilled pineapple and teriyaki sauce. They were juicy and delicious. I wouldn't have thought of that combination, but with cheese holding the pineapple in place, it was perfect. The fries were also good. We shared a fruit smoothie, which was... More

We stayed at the Marriott and were looking for an alternative to eating at the hotel when we came across this little burger shop and ordered takeaway. Tasted amazing and was so fresh and didn't feel too greasy at all. I'm back in Australia now and I wish we had a place like this! Do yourself a favour and get... More

We stayed at the Marriott and were looking for options that were less pricey, where we didn't need to get in the car. The kids loved the burger meal - fries were great. The fish sandwich was outstanding. It was really fresh and delicious! We also ate breakfast there another day. The egg sandwich with wasabi mayo was one of... More

Once in awhile you find a great place by taking a chance... the Kalapaki Beach Hut is a little hard to find due to its small size, i.e., by the time you see it tucked away off the road you are already past it - but it is worth turning around and going back for. They serve breakfast, lunch and... More
