Great burgers. The special was Ahi fish sandwich and it was great also. Upstairs you can watch the ocean.

I reluctantly wrote the title bc as much as most people hate to wait long for anything, I didn't want that to stop someone from reading the review. If you read on and visit, I promise you will not regret it! The burgers were tasty and loaded with all the toppings. A variety of burgers like jalapeño and pineapple topped... More

This place is awesome and affordable! We were on vacation at a hotel and were really tired of paying over $60 bucks for breakfast for the three of us. This place has breakfast under $10 and they give you a lot of food! My son loved the Loco Moco. My favorite was the french toast, eggs and bacon! Very delicious... More

Just off the beach near Marriott and Dukes. Swam at beach. Take out food and ate at the beach. Eat here. Shaved ice is at separate window. Cherry tastes like koolaid, that's a good thing. Food is a little pricey, like everything on Kauai.

I was in Kauai this week staying at the Marriott Beach Club and made a regular breakfast stop at Kalapaki Beach Hut. Never disappointed with excellent Loco Moco, pancakes and omelets. Order your selection downstairs and then take the stairs to the second floor for the best ocean view, Just Excellent!

This was the best burger we had on our week long stay on the island. The tropical smoothie is awesome, too. It's not the fastest place, because it gets busy, but it's good stuff.

Ahi burger and taro chips made for a terrific lunch! The regular burgers and loco moco are tasty too. Prices are relatively inexpensive. You order at a window on the first floor and then hopefully you find space on the open second floor, with beach views. There are also a few barstools and picnic tables on the first floor. It...

We are here for our honeymoon and my husband was struggling to find a decent priced vegan place. Taro burger for the win!!!
