“Best restaurant in the area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We went to Fat Kahuna's over Christmas vacation and had a great time! It was friendly, lively, and the food was fantastic. We were surprised at how inexpensive the place is. The pork sandwich was tender and flavorful and the yellow-fin tuna was cooked to perfection. Everything we had was very fresh. The sauces were innovative and delicious.
Get there early because it gets packed.

“Slow Kahuna”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Food was good, but should be after waiting over two hours for it. Service was poor and not apologetic about wait!

“brevard foodie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Love this place! I'm heading there now for what I know will be a relaxed meal, served fresh & delicious. The laid back classy atmosphere with the ocean view and great, quality food are just what has been needed in this corner of the bar 'scene'. I fish dishes, fresh and not overcooked, are my favorites and the prices are very affordable. I guess I'm a salad snob and didn't think I would like the iceberg salad, but it was amazing...with just a small kick of spicy in the dressing, and went perfectly with the rest of the toppings. If you need some comfort food, the burgers & gorgonzalo fries shouldn't be missed. Mahalo for your hard work there, keep it up and thanks for bringing some wonderful new food to our area!

“LOVED IT!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

This was the exact place my boyfriend and I were looking for! We were right next to the beach, music was playing, and the food was amazing! We sat outside and ordered the tempura as an appetizer and I had the kabobs and my boyfriend had one of their famous burgers. Everything was just delicious. It was plated so nicely and the portions were just perfect. I personally liked the feel of it all. It was very welcoming, the work staff was extremely pleasant and even the owners came over and talked to us a bit seeing if anything else was needed. I highly recommend this place!!
