We just had ice cream ... or an ice cream type drink... most of the evenings we were in town... most of the other 'quick stop' type places close by 6 pm... and the Fish & Chips restaurant didn't really serve dessert. It was fun sitting outside and watching the local young people hang around.

We stopped by 'the Hut' for lunch on our way home from the Hot Springs on their last day of business until Spring. We ordered fries (very good, light and crispy) and onion rings (same as fries) and I had the mushroom burger (fried canned mushrooms on a cheap frozen patty that tasted like a greasy sausage) while my husband...

Burger, fries, milkshake or ice cream. Any visitors to Nakusp needs a taste of The Hut! I can't say the place has changed much at all over the years and some things shouldn't change.

We have been coming to this drive in hamburger place for many years. We always have the mushroom burger, onion rings and peach juice. Yummy! It is a great lunch on our drives through Nakusp and it never changes which is just fine with us! They are fairly quick with their orders no matter the line ups and always deliver... More

This place has the yummiest food ever I went there for a hamburger and a Sunday and it was really good is basically your Calgary peters drive-in right in the heart of NAkusp. Truly one enjoyable experience if you are trying to find it remembered to go past the home hardware personally we've been going to NAkusp for years and... More

We were 1 adult and 3 children on a road trip and came upon this place for lunch. We all had burgers and fries and finished with a milkshake. We were very happy with our meal. In fact we are going back home through Nakusp tomorrow and plan to stop for lunch again. You will not be disappointed with his... More

We did not have a chance to eat a meal here although it was recommended highly, but marvelous shakes hit the spot on a hot day. And the ice cream cones (huge variety) looked good passing out the window to others.

We stopped for lunch on the way through. We enjoyed the milkshakes and the onion rings were really good. The burgers were nothing special- pre made patty on a not so fresh bun.

driving in the middle of Nowheresville, BC wound up taking a ferry I didn't expect to have to take, then wound up in near-Nowheresville -- in Nakusp. Decision time: keep driving, or eat. Stomach growls suggested that I eat. And I found the Hut. Just another dumpy wayside eatery . . . I *thought*. Then I ordered. A bucket of... More

Hey have a good selection of ice cream and all at a good price. There are picnic tables outside that are covered where you can eat. There is no inside dining. There is adequate parking.
