Humuhumu’s description

The Banana Hut started out in 2004 as a simple fair-food shack selling banana fritters and ice cream. In 2009, owners Ken and Fatima Evans expanded into a full restaurant in downtown Eureka. In 2011, they were able to purchase the remains of the interior of Chicago's Kona Kai

, and are planning to expand to add a tiki bar and banquet room.
The restaurant has plenty of thatch and a scattering of smaller tiki masks on the walls, with a bright and airy modern surf feel. The food is Hawaiian cuisine with all the plate lunch favorites, and tropical cocktails are available.

Tikis al over. I only miss the decorations , swizzelstiks and the tiki mugs with the cocktail

I wasnít convinced at all by this bar, itís had some great vintage pieces of decor, but then let itself down by using African masks/crap Tikis over the lights.
It has a funny damp smell, and the drinks were kinda ok.
I wonít be visiting here again

This is a Hawaiian restaurant that serves tiki drinks. There is not a bar area to sit, table service only.

I liked my food but my Mai Tai was made with Trader Vic's orgeat. :(

If you're grading on a curve for the area, it's a nice spot.
