The Crab Pot Restaurant is now at that location.

I believe the Hukilau was the upstairs banquet room. The photo shows just the stairs leading to it.

The Hukilau was the upstairs Polynesian lounge that served exotic drinks and Pu-Pus. This menu was on ebay and can be seen on Arkiva Tropika.

Some interesting art on the cover, an almost oriental style.




The drinks.










The Pu-Pus.



Quite a mysterious place. Need more pics.

Found another menu from Captains' Inn. Wish I could find some more from The Hukilau.

I recently found this brochure dating to around 1960 for the new Long Beach Marina. Inside, it mentions the Captain's Inn as having "luxurious surroundings from nautical to Polynesian".



This map drawing is from the Gold Cup recipe page in Beachbum Berry's Original Grog Log.



There were also a few nice aerial photos of the marina in the brochure. You can see how large the building was in this photo, the Inn is between the 4's.



Here's the Alamitos Bay marina looking out to the Pacific with the Captain's Inn a little above
nine o'clock. The large "snakelike" hotel building in the bottom right corner was called the Edgewater Hyatt House at the time.



I haven't been able to find the timing of the Captain's Inn's demise, but the building was a Charthouse restaurant for many years prior to it becoming the Crab Pot restaurant. Please add me to the list of people who'd like to see some photos of the Hukilau, they're out there somewhere!

The opening credits of Gilligan's Island season 2 & 3 were filmed at the Alamitos Bay (Long Beach) Marina

YouTube: Gilligan's Island Intro

The first shot must have been filmed near, if not on, the Captain's Inn patio. If you go to The Crabpot, you can see this same view.
