    We have dined here dozens of times and always enjoyed it but not so much this time. This time we were put in the back near a large very noisy group. Just bad timing and an unlucky table location. Have always enjoyed it there and will be back.

    We have eaten here before and will come back again. My fish was a little dry on the end and slightly crispy. The carrots were good but very hard to cut. Service was a little slow. Calamari was fantastic. We had a great table on the lower level right near the grass.

    Had dinner here at sunset and the views were incredible, as well as the service. Loved the poke tacos and the mushroom ravioli. The hula pie was the best thing we had! However the crab topped mahi mahi was just okay (bland) and should have come with some sort of vegetable. Thank goodness for the Thai sweet chili sauce they have on the table. There was a great musical duo and a hula dancer which were very entertaining but it was all a bit too loud for our preferences. We actually switched tables from one in the sand to one further from the speakers, which helped. We were glad they were so accommodating!

    Matty - our server - was excellent! Friendly, knowledgeable and so nice. Food was delicious! Started with the pot stickers then I had the fish soup. OMG it was so flavourful and packed with goodies - including lobster tail. Yummy. My husband had the fish special (similar to Snapper) and was not disappointed. No room for dessert but did see some go by.... next time for sure!!

    Big portions, we split a couple of apps and hula pie. Nice setting. Service was fine, we had an 8pm reservation which we were a few minutes early for. Took a little longer than expected for drinks and apps so we didn't order an entree. We felt a little rushed so we went somewhere else for after dinner drinks

    I’ve been coming here for years. The food is much much better than before but the portions very very small. $48 for a 2 inch diameter piece of macadamia nut crusted mahi-mahi. But overall a very nice experience.

    Our server was amazing. Also our bartender while waiting for the table Jonnie Love was awesome. The only suggestion I have is if you are a hostess. Be nice and look people in the eyes. She couldn’t even look up at us and was completely rude. We live in Kihei and are on a staycation and own our own business. If I knew how she treated customers and was the front of our business she would be fired. Everyone has a bad day or maybe she I numb to tourists but if want a job just treat people they way you would want to be treated. We have been coming here for 15 years and still is our favorite restaurant on the west side.

    Hula's has been slipping the past few years, from an always-delicious perfect place to eat, to a tourist-machine. We've eaten there twice this month, and our first dinner was delicious on all counts. We recently had another meal there, and the food was ill-prepared, ribs were dry, bread was cold, and our waiter added a meal on our tab that we didn't order (as well as forgot to bring something we did order.) Most of the staff are great, and all of them work pretty hard.

    The food was great as well as the service. We asked for a table on the ocean but our view was blocked by kiosks. We were also seated in the bar section which meant we were seated in the sand. I prefer the other side on the patio with more unobstructed views
