We've been going here a couple of times a year forever. The decor and history make the restaurant. Food is fine, but not the reason you would go. We had our department Christmas party here, which was great as we were on a budget and since they are BYOB they were open to us bringing our own. Service was great... More

I have been coming here for about 35 years but this is my first review. My wife's sisters family are native to this part of Tennessee and this restaurant is a favorite place for the locals. We arrived right at 5 and by 5:20 the place was packed. If you like oriental food it is similar to Polynesian, the menu... More

One of my favorite local spots to eat! The food is really good, but can be a little pricey. They do not serve alcohol, but you can bring in any alcohol you want. One of my favorite things about this place is the totally unique atmosphere. The food is totally different from anywhere else locally. I highly recommend the Tahitian... More

We have never been here before. The Hawaiian tea is very good. It taste like pineapple juice over shaved ice. It's 4.75 per person, but free refills and often. The bread was fresh and good. The flower soup was ok, but if you do not like onions, tell the to hold the green onions. My husband liked his house salad... More

After seeing a full parking lot on numerous occasions, it was a definite on our list to try. This restaurant opened in the sixties as a Hawaiian themed place. As you walk in the decor has not changed and it is truly like stepping back in time or visiting an old set of Magnum PI.....and it works really well!! The... More

What am awesome place on the middle of nowhere. Friendly staff, comfortable environment and great food to boot. A nice departure from the tired, run-of-the-mill cuisine.

I hate to say it but it had been years since we went to the Omni Hut but it was as good as I remember! It takes me back to when I was a kid and had the unique foods for the first time. The staff is so friendly and attentive. So go hungry and BYOB.

It was a real treat to visit this Polynesian style restaurant. The food was good but I think I enjoyed the atmosphere and decor even more than the food. I especially loved the colorful glowing lantern on our table for two. The fish tank we were seated near was pretty cool too. Omni Hut is open 5 days a week,... More

September is birthday month in our family. We were celebrating 6 this time. While we prefer the room to the right, we have outgrown the available table space for that side. Now we sit to the left and text those at the other end. Kidding. The youngest usually sit on the other end and us old folks on the other.... More

Special Occasions, Celebrations or just a good soild meal this is the place. So many memories have been created here and hopefully many more will be for generations to come. My standard go to order is the Po's Po's in the Fiery Pupu Platter. Still BYOB and always friendly.
