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.

A great place for some Hawaiian food with a tiki vibe. It's more of a restaurant than a tiki bar, but it's got a very respectable selection of tiki drinks to pair with the food. The decor has a lot of tikis with both free standing and wall mounted ones. It even has some (generic) tiki mugs. The musubi and deep fried musubi really hit the spot. The only caveat I'd have for the tikiphile about the place was the "mood." It felt like a restaurant rather than an exotic escape where you left the daily grind of the real world behind.

Overall, a great place to drop by, have some tasty food, and grab a nice rum drink. I'd definitely go there again when I visit Eureka.
