Some friends and I ate at the Harbor Hut's outdoor stand and the food was just fine. It was about a year ago and I think I remember we had food like fish and chips. Lots of people from the San Joaquin Valley (Hanford, Coalinga, Avenal, Fresno, Lemoore, Visalia, etc.) go to the coast and have always talked about eating at the Harbor Hut. My mother-in-law tells the story that when my husband was small, he wondered how you were supposed to get into the hut at the top of the building.

I think the problem is obvious from the first photo, Sven. For God's sake! You had him rubbing wooden male virility totems willy-nilly all over the country at a young age. I hope he thanks you.

(I hope you guys rubbed a lot of well-hung Tangaroa tikis too)

Also, early cannibal carving contact might have inspired him to supplement his diet with "long pig", which caused gigantism. Unthinkable, the damage I inflicted by subjecting a young child to all these pagan customs.

Went to the Harbor Hut over the holidays for a quick look-see and a Mai Tai.

Here is the child's coloring book menu in the cannibal theme - enough to scare the little ones!

Visited the Harbor Hut on March 1st. Didn't have time to have food or drink, but talked with some of the wait staff who were all very friendly. They did mention that just a short time ago, someone stole a few tikis. I didn't see the cannibal tiki anywhere, so that might be the one that was taken. Very sad if so.

Nooooo! Sacrilege! Taboo broken! Bad mana for the thief! Although we all can identify with the desire to own such a magnificent carving, to desecrate an existing Tiki site with such looting hurts the whole Tiki community. To think how many years it stood guard at the place...

Thanks for the photos and update, that gate is really spectacular.

Here's a couple of blurry-ish photos of the Harbor Hut tikis in 2001 (after Otto's party at the Madonna Inn).
