We dropped in for lunch. We all had one of their amazing hamburgers with local grass-fed beef. They were fresh and juicy the buns were soft and moist everything about the burger was amazing! The french fries they served we're not our favorite type but...More

I ordered the Aloha burger, and my husband got the jalapeno. Both were super good burgers, made fresh, with a nice grilled char flavor. Extremely juicy- I think I used about 3,000 napkins. :) Prices were affordable and the location was very close to a...More

By no means is this a high end type of place, but the food is good and a decent value. I’m definitely more critical of the expensive restaurants since I have high expectations for those kinds of places/prices. This place is a fun spot you...More

The restaurant is located on the corner of Rice street (58) and Kalapaki road. It is small and it only has outdoor seating. For a family of four from California, we liked the menu choices. We ordered Cheese Omelette, Short stack of Pancakes, and Breakfast...More

The gal from the helicopter tour recommended we try this place for breakfast. What a fantastic little find off the beaten path. Get your food and go upstairs to eat. Grab your utensils and such before heading up.

Subpar food and hospitality. Better of staying home and cooking your own breakfast. Kauai is great though.More

So sorry your very first review on Trip Advisor was about an unhappy experience at the HUT. This is not the usual response we get. We aren't perfect but strive to improve and it would greatly help if we know when and what you ate....More

Burgers were very good. Large side of fries to share and good kosher dill pickles. Didn't take long either. Only counter style seating even upstairs.

Breakfast was good...but not great. (IMHO, It's hard to really screw up breakfast.) Maybe lunch is fantastic but the basic breakfast does not live up to the hype of one of the top breakfasts on the island.

We had breakfast here after reading reviews. The breakfast potatoes were the exact same frozen, orange-colored processed uniform chunks that you can get anywhere. The rest was ok, but, fresh ingredients make everything better. We wouldn't go back.

No, I don't think they serve alcohol. You can go right around the corner to Duke's. Great location! We went at sunset so it very pleasant to watch the evening sky. Food was good and the staff were very friendly. We even ate... More
