Hula Grill - Kaanapali
fresh ahi*, shoyu, maui onions, chili flakes, avocado, wasabi aioli
waipoli greens, tomatoes, pohole fern, marinated hearts of palm, maui onion, lime ginger miso dressing
Anniversary nothing mentioned. Out of items so very limited menu. Very slow in getting cocktails
Their most popular entree according to our server (macadamia crusted mahi mahi) was dry and flavorless, my wife also found a hair in her entree. Not our favorite.
Good service and food.
Pretty bad experience. Had a reservation, got sat very late on terrible wet table. Not sure I would go back.
When in doubt- order the coconut seafood chowder!
Horrible service!! Had to switch wait staff due to substandard service and it only marginally improved. It took nearly 55 minutes to get appetizers and they all arrived at different times. After talking to the manager on two different occasions, I understand why the service was so bad. They don’t care. We have come here twice each week during our last 14 years visiting Maui. While waiting for our food, I cancelled our reservation for later In the week. You can do far better on Maui.
Service was very good. Some meals were very good but the seafood special of ahi and mahi was bite-sized. Way overpriced at $38 for what amounted to an appetizer. Seafood pasta given a rave review as did the spinach starter/share plate.
Excellent service and good food. Can't beat the beach side dining experience.
Great food. Love this place. The Hula Pie is right on time!
Service was slow.
We did not order drinks, just water. It took exactly 28 minutes to get the complimentary bread. Ordered appetizers but never received them. Food was good, not great. Been there many times over the years, but we decided There are better places to enjoy an evening out. Atmosphere is crowded and noisy.
We always eat in the dinning restaurant. The waiter acted put out when we requested dairy free and gluten free and didn’t offer many options.
Our server DJ was excellent and the food was also excellent. Overall atmosphere was good, but a little noisy and our table location was marginal. A large busy restaurant with very good food!
We have eaten at the Hula Grill every time we stay in Kaanapali. This time we found the food not up to the quality we have experienced before. Service was perfunctory. Not as personable as we have found in the past.
Beautiful site, gorgeous views, and delicious cuisine. Casual atmosphere with upscale food at very reasonable prices, especially given the comparable restaurants of this grade in West Maui. Hula Grill remains my favorite of all the upscale restaurants in the area. The coconut fish chowder main is a unique dish; the ceviche is fresh and meaty. And I would come here, no lie, just for their homemade chili garlic water and herbed bread. Wonderful flavors all around.
My hubby & I come here when we are in Maui! It’s the best!
We get the early bird three course dinner. The dinner time, servings are perfect for us. Love the sunset & the live music. Our server was excellent.
Best overall restaurant in the area!
Nothing beats a gorgeous ocean view with soft breezes, eating amazing food! I highly recommend them.
Anniversary dinner, asked for an ocean view, and we got seats with a great view.
Can’t beat the ocean front location! Wonderful menu and service.
Amazing except for hostess who did not honour our reservation
Hula Grill is one of our favorites! DJ was our server, we had exceptional service!
We were celebrating our anniversary and our server Edgar was absolutely incredible and provided the best amazing personalized service couldn’t ask for better we will return each year with hopes to see him again 😀
Thanks Miranda and Jerrod

Enjoyed our experience at the restaurant. Food was timely and delicious. We relaxed watching whales breach from our table close to the ocean. Server was excellent and had wonderful recommendations.
Last night of our honeymoon in Maui and it was brilliant!
Beautiful restaurant and great location. Food was good, but not great considering the prices. High even for Maui.
Way overpriced, service was slow, couldn’t get a refill. Food was very good but not a lot for the price. I won’t go back.
We did the early Chefs dinner for $27 each. We each had an appetizer, entree and dessert and left the restaurant very satisfied. All of the food presented was excellent from the potstickers, soup, mahi mahi to the ice cream sandwich. On our trip of 12 days we have eaten at the Hula Grill and never been disappointed. Great staff, friendly but not overwhelming with the service. We highly recommend this restaurant.
Food was OK not great.... service a little slow. For the money, Dukes (from the same restaurant group) had a better menu, much better ambiance, and better service... and just just located a few miles up Kaanapali beach
Food was delicious! Setting was incomparable! Brian was personable and knowledgeable.
Our reservation was made a week in advance - while in Dallas because there is always such a wait (or used to be).
They now have two levels of dinner menus - which was a surprise.
We were looking for a lighter fare & were advised - after we were seated that only a higher end, more expensive menu was available & we could not order our usual fare of fish tacos or fish n chips - we weren’t in the ‘barefoot seating area’.
After decades of being visitors/customers, we Probably won’t be back.
Wonderful food,service and scenery. Prime rib was amazing
The food was amazing and the specialty drinks were too. Noise level is a bit high and even with a reservation it took 20 minutes to seat us, which was fine overall as we had nowhere we had to be but was disappointed that we were seated in the back with not much of a view. We ordered the mahi mahi covered in crab meat with a side of spinach and it was beyond amazing. Great evening overall. The amazing whale show while we waited was spectacular.
We had reservations for 7. Took about 10 minutes to seat us. Once seated it was after 7:30 before we had service. Once that happened it was great. Food was wonderful, server was good, a nice time. I would go back.
The food, service, and staff were all great. I would recommend this place to anyone who asks about it. Thanks!
One of our go to places. Always great service, excellent seafood and spectacular views at sunset.
Nice variety of foods, appetizers and dessert!
Picture perfect evening, great service and food, spectacular views.
Server very welcoming and genuine. Well-prepared fish, nice wines. Yes, it is expensive but so is anywhere nice on the island. Above all, they went the extra measure when my husband lost his key. They searched for, found, and secured it, saving us a lot of trouble! A bit loud so not terribly romantic.
Great as always. Great service, food and ambiance. Hula has Ben our favorite for years and have not let us down as other Maui restaurants. We will definitely return.
Fish choices were lovely and prepared well.
this was a good restaurant but not great. We tried 3 different ones in the area that are tied to Peter Merriman and this is the least impressive of the 3 but it was still good...just not great.
Had dinner here 2 nights ago. The staff is very friendly. I had the seafood pasta. My wife had fish. They were both good. They surprised us with a free desert for our anniversary. View of the ocean is great. We have had lunch (twice) and now dinner. Will be back.
