Great & messy (juicy) burger-the best kind. Many burger options along with a few fish entrees. We had the aloha burger and the teriyaki burger, an order of taro fries, a chocolate milkshake and a bottle of water. Everything was delicious. I would highly recommend...More

Had breakfast here and ordered two bacon-tomato omelettes. My husband didn’t get any bacon. I requested mine without bacon—but didn’t get tomatoes (or bacon). We heard the cook complaining about about “custom omelettes.” That seemed too difficult to do 🙂. Otherwise, OK, and a nice...More

This great little place has an amazing view from upstairs of the bay! But the best part are the burgers and Taro fries! Best on the Island of Kauai! Great milkshakes and shave ice too! Don't miss it!

We had a nice walk on the beach early am and this place is very conveniently located. Despite many good reviews, we were very disappointed. The egg sandwich buns tasted like stale oil and the steak dish was salty. Will not come back here.

We were staying in the Marriott nearby and ate breakfast and lunch here a couple of times. Dont be put off by the 'shack' like exterior - the food is top notch, and isnt too pricey. Everything cooked to order with fresh ingredients. Happy smiley...More

My son took me here since he's been to Kauai many times. This is THE place to get breakfast in Kauai. The portions are big and the price is reasonable. If you're looking for atmosphere, this is not for you but there's an upstairs where...More

Affordable. The burgers are delicious. Kids are them a couple times. I had an Ahi burger. Very good. Fish changes daily. Loco Moco was spot on. Highly recommended

Kalapaki Beach Hut is not the place to eat if you are a vegan or requires gluten free food. The kitchen is tine and even if they tried, I fear there would be some cross pollination of meat products, and, or bread products.
