Our family had 3 great burgers with taro buns ( 50 cents extra but good). Also had a very fresh fish sandwich. . Our service was at lunch time, a line to order but it went fast & we received our order in 10 minutes or less. The shave ice was outstanding, we tried JoJo's, Hee Fat, Ono Shave Ice,... More

Found this gem on our last visit while staying the Marriott.....nice walk across the sand to the beach hut...made a special trip from Princville this time...and wonderful breakfast dishes! Seating on top has an awesome view of the bay... Omelette's , fried eggs, waffles , bacon...it's all good..never tried it for lunch but I hear it's great!

This is a hole in the wall type place, very little seating and from the length of the line for the shaved ice, I would say that was pretty popular. We had 2 cheeseburgers with fries which were very good. The service is slow because everything is made to order, so if you're in a rush I wouldn't stop here,... More

My husband and I ate here one day for breakfast to try to save a bit of money on our honeymoon, and because there were rave reviews about the place. Overall we felt the place was quite overrated. The woman taking orders the morning we visited obviously did not want to be there, and did not seem very friendly. My... More

After years of ordering 5-6 orders twice a week. We have been told by the owner that we should include gratuity with our order because her employees work hard to package our orders. Geez that is a lot of money that we spent twice a week. They have lost our business, I will be given it to another business who... More

Had burgers, salads, fish....all was great with creshest ingredients. Worth the longer wait for this delicious meal. Love the fact you can walk in with your swimwear, nobody cares. Upstairs is open and has a breeze. Have been here multiple times.

We loved this place! we only had the opportunity to try this place once but we'd love to go back. I had breakfast and my husband had a burger. we shared and we both couldn't decide which we liked better. The view of the ocean was beautiful! If you have the time for a quick lunch we would recommend this... More

Kalapaki Beach Hut is truly a beach hut and you get the atmosphere of that from upstairs. It's a nice view of the bay on one side, downstairs you just get the street. I had an ono burger that was great, and was surprised that I actually liked their taro chips even though I'm not a fan of taro. It's... More

They are a busy crew at times, but they try to keep everyone happy. Drinks are pretty decent. Very small area so it feels too crowded.

Great place for burgers===delicious, Kauai grown beef, inexpensive, and a view that can't be beat. What more could you want in a place? Order downstairs, then sit up in the balcony or out on the front deck for great views of the bay. Perfect place for lunch or a snack...we liked the old- style surf feel to it...
