Eating outside on the balcony. Very good inexpensive food. Try the pancakes with Portugese sausage. Close to the hotel. Take a left on the main road and it is about one hundred yards on the left.

This was a random pick when looking for a Hawaiian Shaved Ice. We tried multiple others that were higher rated on this island, Maui and Oahu. This was the best by far. Maybe they used a tiny bit more syrup or we got lucky. Couldn't find another to beat it.

This was my first trip to Kauai, and Hawaii in general. I had imagined a real "local" feel, near the water. This place hit the spot... You can over look the ocean while you eat upstairs in its loft. The food is SOOO affordable and delicious! The loco Moco is so good, I swear I had it every morning for... More

Can't quite see why the Beach Hut has gotten such great reviews. Went for lunch and had the fish and chips and my wife the cheese burger. The burger was very ordinary and the meat on the thin side. Wouldn't put it in the quality of In And Out burgers. My fish and chips were also very ordinary and though... More

This is always our first stop when we arrive in Kauai! It's always super busy when we come but the view from upstairs alone is worth the wait! The food is always super delicious and appears to be prepared while you wait. Make sure you sit upstairs and enjoy the view of Kalapaki Beach!

Stopped in here just before our flight back to the mainland. Cute casual place / parking a bit of a pain. Quick simple meal...fish n chips, fish sandwich, burgers, etc. Everything was just ok. Not great / not awful.

The jealous side of me doesn't want the secret to get out about the Kalapaki Beach Hut, but if you're looking for a quick breakfast option in the Lihue area, you can't beat this place. Amazing food and very reasonable prices. Our favorite is the breakfast sandwich. Egg over medium with either portuguese sausage or bacon (go with the sausage... More

The family went here after church Sunday and we all enjoyed the food. My wife and I had the Aloha burger with pineapple and teriyaki. Delicious! I would recommend the taro fries and POG. Nice location near Nawiliwili for a pretty view while you eat.

This is the absolutely best find in Kauai for an economy meal. Plenty of choices for young and old. The loco moco is great.
