Hawaii Regional Cuisine
On the water's edge on Kaanapali Beach, Hula Grill offers a stunning view of the Pacific and of the islands of Lanai and Molokai. From this distinctly Hawaiian vantage point, you are invited to join us as we celebrate the hospitality, culture and cuisine of the islands. Dinner is served in our open-air dining room where you can relax in the ambiance of a plantation era beach house while enjoying renown chef Peter Merriman's Hawaii Regional Seafood, that isn't only a favorite of vacationers, but locals too. Hawaiian fresh fish and locally grown produce are combined to create amazing menu offerings that are as colorful as they are flavorful. Fiery sunsets are served up daily along with live Hawaiian entertainment. Our Barefoot Bar offers a more casual menu serving both lunch and dinner under authentic thatch roof umbrellas and a sand floor where you can sink your toes in. The Barefoot Bar is seated on a walk-in basis only.

MONTANA is the best server in all the land!!! I was so impressed with the food, ambiance, and service. It was my first time and it is now considered a staple any time I come to Maui.

The food here was amazing! No food in Hawaii is cheap but this dinner was worth it. Our service was great and we had a perfect spot to view the sunset. I’d definitely recommend!

Wonderful restaurant with delicious seafood options. We absolutely loved their bread and oil combo- the chili water was so memorable that we bought a bottle to take home.

View was fabulous at sunset. Wait staff very friendly and accommodating. Food came out at an easy pace. Had a very tasty mule to drink. Parking at the whalers inn parking lot is a challenge very small spaces but they do validate parking there

Always great. The tasting menu has perfect size dishes and it is worth eating early to take advantage of this menu. We had wonderful service and never felt rushed even though the restaurant was full.

個人旅行です。
マウイ島に到着した夜に利用しました。
席はバーとダイニングの2種類あります。
Open Table で予約するとダイニングの予約でした。
席によっては、店名のフラやウクレレを聴きながら食事がいただけます。
ピザが食べたい方はバーと言われていました。

付いてくるフォカッチャが温かくて美味しかったです。
オススメのマカデミアナッツと魚グリルの料理は今までに経験したことのない味で気に入りました。
サービスもとても満足しました。
またマウイ島に来る機会があれば利用したいです。

This night was our 4th in a row at the Hula Grill. Nights 1-3 were exceptional. There is some serious creativity going on in the kitchen.. and a couple of our servers get high praise. However, this night, we went for the "Chef's Tasting Menu" which is code for 'seniors' small portion early bird special.' 1st I didn't order alcohol, so we went to a 'B' list... there are a ton of servers, but they must be inefficient because we only saw ours, or a sub rarely. The night before there had been 11 men cooks on the line, w/ a good reparte. This night there were 10, w/ one expediter who changed the whole mood of the line... he was sour and did little other than call out the order, then when the plate was finished, shoved the actual ticket into the food and called for the server. My partner ordered a filet rare, and it came well done. She sent it back (now mind you we are watching this all), and they gave her another one that was cold and raw in the middle. My fish portion was barely between 2 and 3 oz. The grilled shishito peppers were a winner. The desserts are lackluster. The ice cream sandwich is huge and no taste. The pineapple upside down cake is small and not creative at all. The drink pours are small. The 1st 2 nights we sat at a tall table at the back by a waterfall and pond, which gave us a view and we could hear the excellent music. If you buy 2 entrees you get a free order of crab potstickers and the ice cream sandwich. Other excellent things we had in the course of 4 meals there: kale salad w/ beats/goat cheese/candied macadamias, fabulous grilled fish tacos, and grilled tofu and veggies. The Manhattan is good but very small.

The ambiance was fantastic! We made reservations and arrived 15 minutes early. With the place full, I thought there was no chance we would get a table but the hostess immediately seated us! We ordered 2 appetizers, the Poke tacos and the Potstickers. The waitress co formed they were great choices! They were both just ok. We ordered the upside down pineapple cake with ice cream for dessert. That was actually pretty good. If we were back home in Texas, the restaurant would have scored 5 stars but, compared to the other restaurants we visited while on Maui, I can only give it 3.5 stars. It came across as very touristy and felt fake.

Great food, cheaper than most of the other restaurants in the area without giving up quality. Almost all of the views on Hawai’i are amazing but you are able to get a sunset view with dinner. Was a great find

Service was terrible. They first sat us in the back of the restaurant where there was zero airflow. Also, the table was by the place they make drinks and smelt like an old dive bar. We had to be reseated. They sat us 45 min after our reservation time.
