They make great hamburgers here. Good grass fed local beef with a variety of options. Limited seating upstairs at an open air counter overlooking the ocean. Very friendly staff.

Grabbed a volcano burger here on my way to the airport to fly home... good, basic burger with fresh toppings. Fries were decent. Loved the extra hot sauces to doctor things up a bit. Only cost me $12, which for Hawaii, is decent.

This was our third trip to Kauai and we were staying at the Marriott Beach Club which was an exchange from our timeshare. The Marriott was certainly a nice place, and much more upscale than other places we usually go - but it is also very expensive as a place to eat. The breakfasts there were $28 which we thought...

We stopped in here a few times on our trip to Kauai. This little family run business even opened early for us one morning. We ate breakfast and lunch here and generally left with a bill of under $20 for both of us. All the food we tried here was great. I would recommend the jalapeño burger for anyone that... More

I took a Humane Society dog out for the day and we were at Kalapaki beach. The dog and I went to the Beach Hut for lunch and I had a fantastic teriyaki burger. I would have given it 5 stars if it had table service but you have to place your order at a window and pick it up.

We ate here for dinner today. The aloha burger was alright, though not great. They have limited seating. We got food to go and walked down to the beach. They have burgers, fries, smoothies, fish and chips, and a fish of the day sandwich. Fast service.

We stopped here breakfast based on the reviews. Indeed the food was very good and the prices were reasonable. It's nothing fancy but if you wanted fancy you would pass this place by without a second look. The people were congenial and willing to help you out with suggestions. Wouldn't eat here if it was raining unless you wanted to... More

This place has huge, fresh, delightful burgers. Awesome fry seasoning. Highly recommend. The milkshakes are just okay so you may want to focus more on the actual meal.

This restaurant is right next to the Kauai Marriott Resort which has its own beach. We came by for breakfast and ordered some eggs, bacon and potatoes. It was actually pretty good.

We had breakfast here, our first morning on Kauai. Cute, casual, local spot. Good food, minimal seating. Service was reasonably fast, but I wouldn't call it fast food.
