I asked for a reservation for 8 which was confirmed by phone and online. When we arrived they split the group up who had come out to celebrate my sons birthday. 2 different tables nowhere near each other.
My sons food was horrible. The burger was so overcooked it was hard. And the waiter never checked back after dropping our food off u til we were dine eating.
I won’t plan on going there again

The food was largely bland and unexceptional except for the wonton dipping sauce which contained way too much Chinese mustard. Service and ambiance with both good. Prices are consistent with HI prices but for worse quality food.

Hula Grill is a great setting our waitress, Carol, was fabulous. The food was very average. We have eaten there before and it was much better. 3 of us got the mac crusted Mahi and it was really dry. We have had it before and it was memorable. Not this time

Everything was good to very good but they need to stop trying to serve turkey dinner for thanksgiving. Food was stone cold and no where close to quality of standard menu items. I would recommend all the food but not the turkey dinner

The service, atmosphere and entertainment were wonderful. The thanksgiving special, Turkey and trimmings was just ok. The Kailua pork stuffing didn’t really have any pork in it, the gravy was lacking flavor and the amount of food on the plate wasn’t plentiful. The fish tacos were good.

Hula Grill remains one of our favorites with the barefoot dining in the sand. Great mahi mahi and ahi poke tacos

We’ve been to Hula Grill on two separate trips now. The customer service really is great, the ambience is perfect and it’s truly just a fun and lively restaurant. We really want to be in love with this place, we love Duke’s, Jake’s and Sunnyside (part of the family of restaurants) but honestly the food and drinks are just mediocre at best. We’ve decided we probably won’t be back.

Great evening. The restaurant just reopened a month ago. Limited menu still had great choices. People were very nice. We were so impressed by how clean everything was. We saw that the staff disinfected the chairs and tables top to bottom. I felt very safe eating there. All staff wore masks and followed protocols.
Live music, great food and a Maui sunset. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful setting watching the sun set over the neighbor island. Easy ordering and prompt service. Food was tasty, even if it was a covid abreviated menu. One of our favorite places on Maui.

Great location on the beach and a nice setting with live music and torches. We decided to order a variety of pupus and especially liked the poke tacos, ceviche and pork potstickers. Very attentive and friendly service. Good cocktails. A nice evening

Great job considering restrictions. If you are going to stick with a limited menu for a bit, I would highly suggest adding your rotisserie chicken and firecrackerfish back to the menu. We had 7 people at our table and 6 of 7 couldn't really find anything they wanted. Our server worked it out with chef and he made us all the firecracker fish. It was EXCEPTIONAL!! MAHALO

We ate a Hula Grill on a previous trip and enjoyed it. This trip however will make this not be a place that we return to. My wife ordered a steak Medium well that was closer to medium rare. I got the fish and wondered why they would send an overcooked dry piece of meat to the table. There are better places to eat on Maui. Skip this one for sure

Had the macadamia crusted mahi mahi. Also had the same T Tommy Bahama’s - Wailea, and Dukes - Kaanapali. Both were much more flavorful. Hula Grill version was disappointing. Odd, since the owners also own Dukes. One would think the food should be equal.

The menu had just enough items to satisfy a mid afternoon lunch - great service, delicious food, personalized service - couldn't ask for more. In fact, I'm going back again to try another dish!

We made reservations and we’re seated in the walkway of the entrance less than 3 feet from the hostess table. It was a very awkward and hard to enjoy our dinner with people walking in/out constantly. Disappointing but it seemed like a cool vibe if you were actually sitting inside the restaurant.
