Hula Hut LogoAfter endlessly and earnestly seeking out many leads that resulted in dead ends, EDC cold-called an iconic restaurant in Austin, and it worked. Hula Hut is known for many things: great food, its scenic location on Lake Austin, surfer & Polynesian inspired décor, outdoor patios, and multiple bars with unique drinks.

Hula Hut broke ground on June 19, 2014 and opened its doors to many hungry residents on October, 2015. With its cult-like following and be-ing the only DFW location, the Little Elm location has exceeded expecta-tions, continuing to be a top sales tax producer and attraction for the Town.

It has over 7,000 square feet of indoor dining space, not including an additional 5,000 square feet of outdoor patio space sitting over Lake Lewisville water. Typical Hula Hut décor adorns the facility, as does an artificial volcano in the water by the patios.
