“Great food, steps from resort”
Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

Dont pay resort prices! Kalapaki Beach Hut is a great alternative. Its very casual--counter service Take your meal upstairs, relax, see the bay, and feel the island breezes while you eat. I had a burger (Kauai beef) and hubby had french toast. Absolutely delicious. Breakfast & lunch all day.

“Ate here three times during our stay”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

The shave ice is the best we tried on the island. The burgers and fries really hit the spot after a long day at Kalapaki. The loco moco was pretty good. This is a food stand. Don't come here expecting a fantastic experience. Take it for what it is...a convenient place to stop for a bite.

“Excellent fast food, friendliest service”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

The young woman who took order was so friendly and helpful. We had ordered a Kalapaki Beach Burger for myself, taro fries (yum, highly recommended!) and a grilled cheese sandwich for my wife. Our order taker suggested we get the children's meal, which included the grilled cheese sandwich, a drink, and the fries for less than the price of the fries and grilled cheese separately. We told her that we wanted taro fries instead of potato fries, and she said it's no problem to substitute. We had tap water to drink (free, unlike The Shrimp Station), which came with a local lemon slice...and was delicious!

There's a nice little dining room upstairs, open to the outside, that has the feel of a treehouse.

This is a great place to eat great-tasting fast food cheap. It'd be great for families. (Our kids have grown up and moved away!)

“Good burgers but service could have been friendlier.”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Stopped here for burgers and fries. Nice beach hut atmosphere and the burgers were great. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. I had the Aloha Burger which was really good. Would definately return. The only negative was the girl taking our order could have been friendlier. She seemed like she really did not enjoy her job too much.

“Ok”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This hut was mediocre for food and drinks were too staff. The hours of operation were unpredictable.
