I read reviews about the burgers so we stopped for breakfast at about 10:40 am. I ordered the bacon cheeseburger but was told that lunch begins at 11am. Therefore I order the breakfast sandwich. Daughter ordered an omelet with breakfast potatoes, but they were out...More

Wow what a find. A great burger with taro chips. Ate upstairs with a wonderful view over the harbour. Could not have asked for more after a day hiking in the Waimea Canyon

We had lunch at this beach house. You order downstairs and the take your food upstairs and sit on the covered deck overlooking the ocean! The catch of the day ahi plate was outstanding. They also make real milk shakes!

Our cruise was docked in port for the day. After walking around shops and resort, we worked up an appetite. I had heard good things about another restaurant, but it looked packed and wasn’t really interested in the menu. However, this beach hut had great...More

We found this place while looking for an inexpensive lunch around Kalapaki Beach- the burger & fries were good but my favorite part was the little covered dining area on top! Beautiful views made the food even better!
