“Don't be fooled”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

We went to Hula Hut for dinner. I didn't check the resturant out before we went. We thought we were going to a island style resturant with island style food. Wrong. Mexican all the way. The food was really good. The service could have been better, waited a while for cocktails. You can choose inside or open-air. Nice location by the river, about $12.00 cab ride from center of town.

“Fun and Food on the Lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

My husband and I recently had lunch with a friend at the Hula Hut during a trip to Texas. The food was very good, atmosphere a mix of Hawaii, Mexico and Texas. Had a great time and recommend this as a wonderful option in Austin. My only complaint was that the food was too spicy for me. My husband was in heaven!

Fun spot for lunch on lake. Sit at bar or outside for best views of lake. Varied menu
With good selections. Chips and sals, yummy. Family and children friendly.

“Good but not great...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

I like this restaurant solely on it's location.

Staff:there but not ecstatic, and do the bare minimum for customer service

Facility: clean, but easy to spot out there isn't enough staff to handle the out going customer clean up and prep. for new in-coming customers

Location: Great ! A must goto for a sunset dinner on the lake!!!!! Parking not so great and actually hard to find


I will return but not frequently

“Good ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Fun place for the kids and a decent bargain. Nice place to go after supper. It's fenced in as well so the kids can roam and play on the play ground.
