Open table has the wrong dinner menu. I noticed it differed from the restaurant so I contacted the restaurant, waited for 10 min while the staff checked to see if we could order the taro burger…I was told yes, but upon arrival for 445pm dinner, our server said no, that is on lunch menu, which ends at 430pm. We would have canceled if known bc there weren’t enough vegetarian options. Seems like restaurant goal is to make more money off people for dinner, with fancier options and less choice. There were also many crying babies at once. Not a quiet meal. Staff was friendly, view was okay but just as good from our balcony.

Definitely a fun place - right on the beach, with sand under your feet at the tables. Decent drinks and delicious food. Overall, a touristy and pricy spot, but one worth visiting for a good time. Service was also good. Just make sure to make reservations!

The barefoot bar area was awesome. I loved putting my feet in the sand while we ate! Lots of foot traffic in front of the restaurant blocking the view of the sunset, but beautiful nonetheless. My Mahi mahi was good and my husbands ribeye was excellent. However, beware the menu on open table does not match their current menu.

This is a great place to get together for drinks and see the sunset right on the beach. Unfortunately the Appetizer and Food are not worth it.

Hula Grill is a beautiful restaurant right on the water. Our server was great! My husbands steak was delicious! The complementary focaccia bread & chili oil is amazing!
This kid Mac & cheese was not good. The wild mushroom ravioli was just ok, a lot more mushrooms & veggies than pasta. I got the fresh tomato soup and it was yummy. I also got the fresh beets and they were pretty good. Such a lovely spot. We made reservations a few months in advance and they our table was ready right on time.

We ate here because it was supposed to be a must eat restaurant. The overall ambiance was good and the service was good. That’s where the positives ended. The food was mediocre and definitely not worth the price being charged. The drinks were warm and not good. My son took one bite of his fish and chips and said it was not good. It definitely tasted fishy. The ribeye was okay, not great. My daughter enjoyed her poke tacos. Hula pie was good. Definitely would not return.

The Hula Grill is one of our favorite places on Kaanapali to have dinner. I had to make a reservation many months in advance to get a 6pm time slot to watch the sunset from our table. The food is superb and the ambiance is unmatched. We love sitting with our feet in the sand while listening to live music. Service was great as well. We heard from people waiting for a table that wait times were as long as 3 hours. If you plan in advance, make reservations long before you leave for Maui. If you don’t, Whalers village is right there to pass the time shopping while you wait for a table. The wait is worth it. The mahi mahi with crab was yummy!

The service was terrible. Our waitress kept upwelling us, saying the portions would be small, when they were fine. Seemed that she just wanted to make the check bigger. The food was mediocre. I guess I just thought it would be better.

Location, Location, Location. Good food, not exceptional but delicious. The fish was a little dry, but the steaks were done well—good appetizers and drinks. If you complain about the price, then stay home. You should not eat at any restaurant on the beach of Kaanapali.
