Since 1976, Rutt’s Hawaiian Café in Culver City has been inviting diners to get into the “Aloha” spirit, with authentic Hawaiian-style food served in a fun, tropical atmosphere. The friendly service and the thatched patio space transport you to the islands, and so does the food. Delicious Hawaiian delicacies, generous portions and low prices have kept regulars coming back for over three decades.
Like the islands themselves, Hawaiian food is a unique combination of American and Asian heritages. Try authentic Hawaiian favorites like teriyaki beef, spam loco moco, Hawaiian barbecued chicken, Japanese short ribs, Portuguese sausage or Chinese char siu pork. Choose a rice bowl or platter, served with steamed rice, green salad or macaroni salad. If you want fish, fresh mahi mahi or filet of sole comes breaded and grilled with rice and salad. Or try one of the many varieties of fried rice or saimin, Hawaiian soft wheat noodle, dishes. Rutt’s also offers a wide selection of burgers, quesadillas, tacos, salads and sandwiches.
If you’re hungry for brunch, Rutt’s has many Hawaiian-style treats in store for you. Try spam, salami, kalbi, char siu or Portuguese sausage with eggs, served on a platter with home fries, hash browns or steamed rice, and toast or King’s Hawaiian bread. Hawaiian sweet bread also appears as delectable French toast served with coconut syrup. Or go for the popular Royale, an omelet with onions, bean sprouts, rice, teriyaki sauce and your choice of traditional meat or vegetable fillings. The Original Hawaiian Royale, with sausage and char siu, is a customer favorite.
Catering is a big part of our business. With catering platters for brunch, lunch and dinner and spreads to feed a crowd, Rutt’s is the perfect place to cater your next special event. You can even rent the festive patio space for a real island party. The catering menu offers unique items such as grilled pineapple chicken, and lau lau, an authentic Hawaiian dish of spiced pork and fish wrapped in taro leaves and slow cooked. For the best deal, order a catering combo, with your choice of several meat, noodle and rice dishes, sides and salads, and Hawaiian sweet rolls.
