This place was exactly what we thought it would be. Great views of lake, nice size bar with many TVs, and decent food. Seemed fine for families and we can't wait to comeback without kids for entertainment late night. I recommend joining.

For a long time this was the only eatery on Lake Keowee that is accessible by both boats and cars. We visited this place regularly because it is reachable from the water; services were casual, friendly, but efficient, and more importantly, the food was simple yet tasty. Most regrettably, however, we were sorely disappointed with our visit today. The four of us arrived at 12:30PM for lunch on a SAT. The place was not too crowded at all – unusual for a weekend. We waited ~20 min. for our server to take our order, not too bad. We ordered their usually very good fish and chips, a serving of onion ring appetizer, and four bottled beers, nothing complicated at all. Ninety minutes later, still no food. We complained and got an explanation that the kitchen had “misplaced” our ticket – they use an electronic ordering system on computers between the wait station and kitchen… To add to our woes, when the fish and chips finally made their appearance, they were tasteless, and greasy, totally unlike their previous fare. The on-duty manager did not charge us for the food and drinks: Thanks, but I rather have the good food back! I noted a similar experience from another reviewer recently in May 2013. I sincerely hope that this is not a harbinger of organizational or systemic failure for the Tiki Hut, especially now, with the appearance of another lakefront restaurant in direct competition, not 10 min. away.

Hops in the summer on weekends - nice stop off on a hot afternoon on the lake. Service always great, food OK - pretty standard bar fare. But we'll keep on returning for the ambiance!!

I just returned from trying to have supper there. My party of seven, including 2 kids age 5 and 7, was seated after a resonable 20 minute wait, and our order was taken in another 5 minutes. Then, 90 minutes later, we are still waiting on our food. The waitress apologized, but we left hungry, after paying our $10 bill for drinks.
It was Memorial day weekend, and they apparent advertised heavily, and had a kitchen that couldn't keep up.
Due to the locastion, we are regular customers arriving by boat, and about 3 of every 4 trip are satisfactory, if they could only get consistant.
It is kind of like that box of chocolate, your never certain what you will get.

Have been coming for a few years and it continues to be our favorite place. They treat our 3 year old like royalty, let her play with the toys, and make her delicious treats. Friends love it and always ask us to take them there - we are 10 min's away. The restaurant is always evolving and continues to get better. The marina atmosphere is great if you like the water!
