Service was quick and attentive. Food was tasty and arrived quickly. View was very pretty. Only con was that cocktails were made from mixes and all tasted too similar to each other- nothing special. Overall we enjoyed our lunch date and would return but maybe get wine instead of a cocktail.
Great location. Over priced. Food was average.
Vacation with family
Generally pleasant. Noisy.
White wine was served rather warm. Management informed the waiter that it just gets warm as it’s transported to the table🙄
We came across Hula Grill while dining at a nearby restaurant. We liked the location and the menu, so decided to try it out. The atmosphere is great, with live music and outdoor seating. Our server was attentive and pleasant. The food was good, but my short rib could have used a bit more of something to make it tastier. We were a little disappointed that we had to make a choice between the casual seating and dining room seating without knowing that they had separate menus.
Waiter and food was excellent. Limited entree selections however, fish selections are local catch which determines the menu.
The Hula Grill has a nice view. Portions are small. Food is ok at best and prices are extremely high for mediocrity. We regretted the decision to dine there.
The view was fantastic. The food was so delicious. The company at my table was even greater.
The atmosphere was lovely and the food was delicious!! Hawaiian dining at its best!
The website for Hula grill says the dinning room is good for a romantic dinner. It is not! Very noisy and hard to have a conversation. The food was WAY overpriced for what you got. I would not eat there again.
Server did not appear interested in our table. Constantly had to chase him down. I’ve been here plenty of times and this is not the service we normally receive. Very disappointing.
We have been to Hula Grill so many times and always leave happy. The chili water and homemade bread is AMAZING. Love the Hula Pie!
Montana was great!
Absolutely delicious food. Server had good character and very friendly!
We arrived at 7:15 , we checked in after a few minutes we sat down , it was a beautiful overlooking table ocean view, eve was the server and she was very attentive and friendly. She answered all our questions and concerns, we ordered and everything was delicious, beautiful presentation, good food and the best is the service.
We went early and just before sunset. Food was a little overpriced but it is in this location it seems
Service was excellent but food does not live up to the price.
Excellent service, food very good but snapper a little over seasoned for me, good local beer selection. Amazing view at sunset. Pricey menu offerings that are made up for by the amazing ocean view, food quality, and service.
Love this place and an all-time sunset dinner favorite for our family. The little kids are entertained on the lawn while we can enjoy the sunset as adults eating their great seafood selection.
My seared Ahi was delicious, and I would go back there just for that. My husband had the chicken, which he said was very average, but he practically licked the plate after his Hula Pie! Service was excellent, and the manager was walking the dining room to make sure everyone was happy. The view is great - right on the sand, but it was very noisy!
Came here with the family for dinner. Was promptly seated with a view of the ocean and sunset. This place is super busy. Eve was our server and she was great. I think that the place really deserves 4.25 stars cause Eve is 5 stars and the food was 4 stars. Both me and my wife had the macadamia nut Mahi Mahi and it was above average but not "one of the best". We did have the seafood potstickers and that was very good too. Kids really enjoyed their choices keiki menu too. For dessert we shared the Hula Pie and that was outstanding! I'd call it "one of the best" I've ever had. Thank you to Eve who made our experience at Hula Grill a great one!
Chili water is the best!! Great view— be sure to finish with Hula Pie (more than enough to share with 2+). My favorite dish— the macadamia crusted Mahi is always phenomenal 😊.
Good location off the beach. Long wait if you don’t have dinner reservations. Tasting menu was excellent (half portions) but plenty to eat. Parking at Whalers Village can be a challenge (lack of spaces) but they validate if you find a spot.
We’ve been to Hula Grill 20 plus times and is a family favorite. We have been noticing the portions getting a little smaller over the years but still a favorite spot for us with great service and quality food.
We had the Chef's Tasting menu, which is offered only from 445 - 545. It was delicious, and a great value. Highly recommend!
Service was very very good. Server was very personable and made sure we felt welcome. She was engaging and shared her story of how she came to Maui. Food was excellent! Pasta dish was a bit over seasoned with citrus, but all seafood was prepared very well.
Nice location/view and very friendly staff. Also, good food and value for Hawaii
Wonderful!!! The meal was perfect and the chili water sauce that comes with the bread is amazing. The ahi was perfect and the hula pie was enormous.
Awesome ahi tuna. Kids loved the kids steak dinner. Waiter had wonderful knowledge of all the dishes.
Wonderful! Delicious food, drinks and dessert.
Ten of us dined at Hula Grill on a Tuesday night. The ambiance was fantastic! Our service was great. We all loved our food. We ordered steaks, seafood, salads, soup and pasta. We loved the focaccia bread and chili pepper water for dipping. We would go back!
Greta sunset bday experience.
Great service, wonderful food!
This is always the first place we eat in maui! Love it!
Food was good but the meals for each person came out at very different times, so we did not eat together. Waitress was totally unaware of the issue.
Drinks & food! Steak & fresh seafood! Our waiter, Maddie, was great too.
Great dinner - the ahi was outstanding. The hula pie is not to be missed!
Awesome food, atmosphere and wait service..
Last night of our Vacation. We have an 8 and 10 year old and they enjoyed the bread (unique dipping sauce) and steak dinner with fries.
I loved the Ahi and husband had Ribeye. Julie was our server and on top of the service. Sunset, great food and service:)
