Rocky J’s Beach Hut’s cooks and owners, Don and Joanne, bring their vision for a relaxed, beach-inspired eatery to life with omelettes, burgers, and sandwiches made with locally sourced ingredients. Breakfast fare wakes up appetites all day, ideal for revivifying mouths with homestyle pancakes and bacon for dinner after all-day tongue-twister competitions. To sate post-meridian-style cravings, pesto and homemade honey mustard enliven whole-grain paninis, toasted herb-and-garlic buns cushion burgers, and inventive salads borrow from the land and sea.
Patrons lounge amid red walls decorated with bright wooden masks and model boats as they unwind with a beer or soak in views of Okanagan Lake from the expansive porch. From May to October, the porch’s bamboo-and-thatch stage hosts live music from myriad genres, and karaoke on Friday nights lets singers serenade stars and send up siren songs to UFOs.
