Would have preferred a table away from large parties and outside more.
Was a bit noisy.
Our server was great and the food was great, as always. This is one of our must stop restaurants when we are in town. Fast service - even when unexpected due to the pandemic.
We were 30 minutes late and our reservation was canceled. We had a lot of traffic and we had trouble finding a parking spot at the mall parking garage. It was understandable. The hostess told us it would be 30-45 minutes. My husband asked for outdoor seating and she said with a bit of attitude well, it will be 45 minutes to an hour then. We were fine with that since we were late. We understood; however, what I don’t understand was the attitude she gave us when we asked for outdoor seating. We were seated after about 27 minutes. We had a nice time, our server was so great, and we had a beautiful view. That was our experience at Hula Grill.
Changed dramatically since covid.
Food selections are very limited, prices are much higher, no printed menus, self check out. Next time I will probably need to cook my own food.
Sorry, I used to come frequently but won't be back until things get closer to normal.
We ate the wood grilled fish and the macadamia nut crusted, crab topped mahi-mahi. Both dishes were delicious as were the cooked carrots, the Caesar salad, and the pineapple upside down cake. Delightful experience with professional staff.
Beach bar restaurant. Food expensive and average. 37 dollar fish chowder had 2 pieces of shrimp, a small (1 cm sized chunk of overcooked fish) and small piece of lobster . Ceviche was ok. Grilled fish of day was mahi,which came with overcooked veggies (? Maybe squash).
We had an amazing server Tiana!!
Food was delicious
Drinks were fantastic
Setting was so beautiful
Second visit to Hula Grill this trip, and it was again disappointing. Service is just not at the level it used to be. I can 100% understand understaffed restaurants right now, but our server tonight just seemed disinterested and unmotivated. We waited a little over 20 minutes just to get our drink order taken, and he was pretty much absent the whole two hours we were there. He sort of appeared, wandered to the three tables he had, and disappeared again. There were at least 7 other people working in our general area, so they definitely didn't look short-staffed. The ladies who delivered drinks were super friendly, and the food was good, but for a place we used to go to 3 or 4 times per trip to Maui, this may have lost our business.
Food was excellent and Lauren was a fantastic server
Great food, service & view. Have to be good with foot traffic going by, but right in the heart of Kaanapali Beach and gorgeous sunset!
It was just okay. The dinner menu is very small. I couldn’t even get fish tacos because that’s only on the lunch menu. Food is over priced for the portion size.
Everything was phenomenal. Food was excellent, service was great. Highly recommend making a reservation in advance since it does get crowded.
Our reservation was for 8:30 pm and even though there were many people waiting to be seated they took us exactly at 8:40. Service was wonderful.
Hula Grill was very accommodating to our seating needs away from the bar for a less lively noise level. Our server was excellent, very accommodating to a shell fish allergy as well as assisting with menu & drinks.
Our of several visits to Hula Grill, this was the first visit that the food did not “wow” us. Although the portion was large & presentation of the plate looked good, our fish seemed a little over cooked. It was still a very nice meal but differed from past visits. We will definitely return. Mahalo
Terrible terrible mean. Sit in the sun and squint for an hour. Very slow. The fish was not good. Had a $100 meal and need to stop on the way home for a snack.
our bartender/server was awesome
Could have had a better location since I made the reservation a month ago
Wasn’t able to sit where we wanted and had reservations. We eat here every yr when we visit. This time we were disappointed and don’t plan to return on this trip. Things that we normally eat we could only eat from the lunch menu now. Left me with an over priced mediocre dinner. With food sensitivities, not much to choose from since I couldn’t eat my normal stuff I get there.
Waitress was nice…. Too bad because we usually look forward to eating here each time.
Super good food and great service! Amy was our server and was fantastic! Very family friendly. Menu is a bit limited but we enjoyed all the entrees we got, so definitely worth it. Plus, they validate parking! No live entertainment when we went there, though, but that could be because of the pandemic?
Food was overpriced, service was very bad. Ordered steak which was very rare, ordered grilled chicken but was brought and charged for the half of a chicken. Server was rushed. Would not recommend
food was acceptable, generally a good experience, but not much above average overall. I would eat there again, but it would not ever be my go to place
Delicious as always. Wonderful service
Good food beautiful location great service
The food was fantastic. Will definitely come back
We had a wonderful dinner and awesome service. Hula pie was so yummy!
The food was good, but drinks are better next door at the Monkey Pod. Service was good too. However, prices were expensive for what you are getting.
Excellent service and thoughtful staff.
Food perfectly cooked.
Everything was excellent. Will come back often!
The grilled mahi mahi was delicious. I love the atmosphere also
Muy buena comida!
Delicious but expensive and small portion ravioli. The chicken dishes were cold and dry, the wine was warm. We are not happy with Hula grill and won't return.
This was our third visit to Hula Grill this trip. Our table had no ambiance and it was very loud inside and my husband is hard of hearing but otherwise it was an amazing experience. Jenifer was one of the best servers we have had so far in Maui. She was energetic, super friendly and extremely accommodating. I would go back just to have her as a waitress again!
Great food and service. Best location ever!!
Good food, great service. Always on our list when staying nearby.
We enjoyed the music and our waitress was very friendly!! We enjoyed our dinner very nice
Beautiful view & outstanding waiter/service!! Food was absolutely amazing!! Nothing like ending the meal with delicious hula pie
Excellent meal and nice open air seating
Wonderful meal and drinks!
