A charming tiki restaurant, where employees and customers alike are treated like family. The Omni Huts creator, Jim Walls, started the Omni Hut after taking up cooking as a hobby and second job while stationed in Honolulu as a pilot before World War II. The military took him all over the world, and he picked up culinary tricks wherever he went, and it when it came time to retire, he decided to open a restaurant. He chose this location in Smyrna, near Ft. Stuart, and opened a restaurant called "Chinese Cuisine," which soon became the Omni Hut. Walls also owned the nearby Mahi Mahi for a short time. The Omni Hut suffered a fire in 2000, but luckily the restaurant has been able to reopen with the decor largely intact. The Omni Hut does not have a liquor license, but customers are encouraged to spike their own drinks -- the Omni Hut has a "Hawaiian Tea" drink that is perfect with a little rum added.
To celebrate 50 years in business, the Omni Hut had two special souvenir mugs created by Tiki Farm, and they can be purchased at the restaurant (their special teriyaki sauce, too!).
