Hula Grill - Kaanapali
Great service!Brenda waited on us and she could not have been nicer.
Warm focaccia bread is served in an old metal lunch box with olive oil and a spicy sweet sour sauce. OMG! We brought home two bottles of the sauce, it was that good.
My husband had delicious fish tacos; I had a burger that was ok, but certainly not worthy of the "Best on Maui" designation. It was flavorful, though overcooked; the bun was really good.
We didn't partake in the ice cream sandwich, but it looked wonderful.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA must do in MauiIf you're expecting a quiet romantic dinner this isn't your place, if you're looking for delicious food and amazing service, Hula grill is the place for you.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great table nearWe had a great table near the ocean so the sunset definately added to the ambience. We loved the poke tacos! Our server was Jackie and she was very attentive without being intrusive. We will be back for sure.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and great serviceIn their main dining room I had then Poke Tacos appetizer, then seared Ahi for dinner. Big portion, fresh, and tasted great. My wife had a Local fish catch-ot-the-day she enjoyed. Be sure to ask for server Jennifer -- she's been there eight years and was very friendly and attentive. Hard to find a good restaurant here in Maui that is not an overpriced "tourist trap", so Hula Grill is the exception as we go to Maui for two weeks every years, we do know where to go and where not to go. This place also has a patio and bar area good for burgers and sandwiches.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSun, suds, and sand....I mean what's better than this! Fresh fish, views of the sunset, sand at your feet...did I mention the ice cream cookie pie. Whenever I go to Maui it's a requirement to stop here.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food and great service.Amazing food and great service.

Food is always consistently good. Nice varied menu. Service prompt. Nice live music. Great place to relax and have a good time4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome view and food!Hula Grill was awesome! The drinks were great, the poisson cru was spot on, the coconut milk seafood dish was wonderful, and the fresh fish special (walu and opa!) was excellent. Service was great, and the view of Ka'anapali beach was the best part of all. I wish we had dined during the sunset. Nothing beats dining outside on a warm night in Hawaii. We'll definitely return here when we come back!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot near Kaanapali resortsWe had a fantastic dinner at Hula Grill. Our server was fantastic and the food was absolutely delicious. We originally thought the food would be average since it's located right outside Whaler's Village, but took a chance based on Open Table's reviews. Glad we did, it was a fantastic meal.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMChef's Sampler DisappointmentWe enjoyed eating at the Hula Grill, Kaanapali. We saw the Chef's Sampler menu on the Hula Grill website so decided it was an economical dining choice, $25.95/person, with ocean front dining in Lahaina (http://www.hulagrillkaanapali.com/menus/dining-room). Before we ordered our waiter said the items on the Chef's Sampler Menu were half portions sizes. We felt like it was one of those bait and switch deals because the website said nothing about half portions. We decided to try it anyway since we did have a nice lunch at our condo earlier. We were glad we ordered from the Chef's Sampler menu because the food was delicious. The portions were pretty large so we weren't as disappointed and we did get very full. The view and ambiance were great!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing place, top-notch foodAmazing place, top-notch food and the servers are very friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely visit again.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great outdoor restaurantWhat a great outdoor restaurant on the beach.

Great spot!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistent food in a resortConsistent food in a resort area is always a good thing and you can always count on the Hula Grill and the other restaurants in the chain, which we visited as well during our stay, Kimo's and the new Duke's.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWalked in, was seated quicklyWalked in, was seated quickly in the plantation lanai, which we were initially bummed about. But turned out to be a nice quiet and cool table. The service was impeccable. Christina was our server, and she was extremely attentive. She made my girlfriend feel like royalty. The manager even came over and introduced herself. Food was excellent, especially the ice cream sandwich!!!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!As always, a great experience, good food and spectacular view of the ocean and sunset.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe "MUST PLACE" in Kanna'paliWe loved it: even went twice during the 10 days we were in Maui!
Best ahi-tuna EVER! Expensive but well worth it.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Hawiian ocean front diningReliable and spectacular beach location.
Have been frequenting The HULA GRILL every trip to Maui. It's beachfront location is prime.Just what you want in Hawaii. Dining always great and service attentive. Good menu selection and good portion sizes. We dined a little earlier in order to enjoy the sunset.Check local dates for time of sunset! Come 5-6 pm to take advantage of the Chef's 3 course menu. Our party of 4 also ate in the afternoon in the casual BAREFOOT Bar with it's sand beach floor. Nice musical addition enhanced our meal. Fresh fish, well prepared is a sure thing! Located ocean front by The Whaler's Shopping complex. Easy walk on the board walk to most Ka'anapali Hotels/condos.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHula Grill is one of our favorites.Hula Grill is one of our favorites. Our reservation was for 6, but we stopped by earlier in the day and they were able to move it to 7:15. When we showed, up they instantly seated us in a room to ourselves that was great for our group of 8.

Service was quite attentive, and waiter very knowledgeable. Food was decent, but nothing to brag about. Hard to beat the view,although at night the ocean isn't visible.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful spot right on theBeautiful spot right on the beach. Fresh fish main courses were cooked perfectly. We were disappointed by the side dishes of the same rice & slaw we were served our sandwiches with at lunch. For those prices a little creativity would have been a big plus for us.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe bestThe hula grill is a Maui must! Bobby the chef cooks up a culinary frest.
