Probably the worst fish tacos I’ve ever had. The food is overpriced and mediocre at best. Cocktails were good tho. Skip dinner and go for drinks.

Fantastic location. Excellent service. The Ahi steak was delicious. My husband ordered the macadamia crusted Mahi Mahi which was also amazing.

I had the ceviche, it was rubbery. The Mahi Mahi with crab on top is what they’re known for, I thought it was very subpar. I think it had cheese in it? It was just really not for me.
They’re understaffed in the waiting department, ex. my food came with no utensils.

Wish I could say I had a nice time but I didn’t.

Came here in 2019 sad to see a limited menu, the burger was average. Disappointed in the chain.... ate at Dukes, Hula Grill and Leilanis and Leilanis was the best by far.

Hula Grill does not disappoint- ever! Food, service, drinks, ambience — everything meeting expectations. Have been going there for years and pleased to see they finally added Hula Pie to their dessert menu! Well done TS, and about damn time!! :<)

The hostess was borderline rude. Acted like they were doing us a favor by letting us dine at their restaurant. The waiter was OK. The food was OK but not good enough to return given all the wonderful restaurants in the area and the negative experience upon arrival.

Awesome dinner, once again, at Hula Grill!! This is our fav GO TO in Maui!! We kept checking Open Table to see if a table opened up and it did! Seated right on time, beautiful live music and sunset! We both ordered the Mahi Mahi dinner, macadamia crusted, was great! Shared a Caesar salad, and because we were loving the ambiance, decided to go for the Hula Pie - OMGness! To die for! Our server was fabulous ~ as were all the staff at Hula Grill. Picked up a new coffee mug and t-shirt./ Everything super easy, contactless and safe!

We have been coming to Maui for fifteen years and our first dinner on the island is always at Hula Grill. The service is outstanding, the food is amazing, and eating dinner with your toes in the sand, Hawaiian music playing, and the ocean in view is the perfect way to begin a vacation in paradise!

The hula grill is a wonderful experience when you come to Maui. They have all kinds of Varieties of dishes and at a good price. Their specialties are Fresh fish of course. I had the fish tacos this time which were beer battered and had some kind of coleslaw and sauce inside the flour tortilla. They were delicious! The ambience is beachy because it’s right on the Beach. This could be a romantic setting or the whole family can come. They even have an area where you can sit with your toes in the sand!
I love going to the Hula Grill every time I come to Maui. ❤️

We were very disappointed. The service was slow and not attentive. They seemed overwhelmed. The food quality was disappointing in general but even more so given the price.

Service was outstanding. Unfortunately there was a table of 5 unruly, loud children adjacent to us. Their parents were at an adjacent table and totally ignored the chaos. Once they left, we were able to watch sun set and enjoy a delicious dessert.

Great ambiance, food and service.
Failed miserably when ordering wine with our meal. Asked our waiter for a bottle of Justin Cabernet which was on the wine list and he said He’d be right back with our selection BUT when he came back he told us that his manager would not sell the bottle because they were running low with that vintage. No problem selling it by the glass which made no sense except that they would make a bigger profit selling it that way.
Poor way to treat your repeat customers.
I’ve always had a great experience at the Hula Grill but this left a bad taste in my mouth because the manager wanted to make a few extra dollars.
SAD !!!
