Five pieces of Ono and crispy fries (chips). Located South of the airport just pass the Marriot, it over looks a great surfing area adjacent to... More

We stayed at the Marriott , so the kalapaki beach hut was a perfect morning walk for breakfast. We liked the food and local vibe so much that we went two or three times on our trip! The breakfast sandwiches are fantastic! There was often a line, but totally worth a wait!

No frills. You order at the counter and you can sit outside at tables or go upstairs and sit in an open air dining area that has ocean views. Had bacon and eggs for breakfast and burgers for lunch. Fries were good. They were out of taro fries so we'll have to try again. Reasonable prices for Kauai.

Everything you get here is SO GOOD. I enjoyed breakfast here on a few occasions and would definitely return if it were closer to where I lived! Yummy food.

Overall: The is one of my favorite burger joints on the island. It is no frills but some of the best food for lunch. Food: The burgers are all great. I had the mushroom burger and my wife had the Aloha burger; both fantastic. The fries are always a treat, crunchy and excellent with their special sauce. The milk shakes... More

Once I found this place I kept coming back! The burgers were great and the fish and chips were really good. I found that the junior size was actually plenty for me as well Husband handled the full order no problem. Thought the prices were excellent, it was pretty busy most of the time but worth wondering over and really... More

1-fish and chips were delicious. 2-open air seating is fine, unless it's getting dark and bugs that are attracted to lights keep landing on your food. So don't go at dusk (unless your looking for extra protein from flying bugs) 3-like most island restaurants, they are short staffed. Plan on waiting a while for your food.

We thought this place hit the spot! We had eaten at Bubbas, Ono and Street burger but had the best overall experience here. This was a better burger clearly than Ono and Bubbas and better for our tastes than Street (and 1/2 the price). Sitting up top with views of the beach didnt hurt either. Definitely recommend as long as... More
