Ordered steak medium got well done and dry, sent back got back closer to rare, also arrived after finish rest of my over cooked prawns and my cheddar potatos with bacon opps! Accually got plain potatoes with crispy burnt kale on top which texture scratches the roof of mouth. The worst meal ever.
Extremely good food and service!
Excellent all the way around. Service, quality, & atmosphere were perfect start to our vacation! Mahalo.
After eating at a few of the restaurants in the Kaanapali area, we tried the Hula Grill and wished we had tried it the first night! It was by far the best dinning we had on Maui. Highly recommend, and definitely try the "chili pepper water", even my wife who moderately gluten intolerant, ended up trying and eating a good amount of the bread because that sauce is so good! But everything was delicious.
We had a lovely dinner: my husband, daughter, son-in-law and three children, age 2 & 5, and an infant nearby in a car seat. Dining one special place as a treat from my 95 year old mother back home!! The good news about Hula Grill and the 5:30 noise level was it felt easy to be there with kids. Our server was outstanding! Handled the kids choices first, extra umbrellas for their water drinks!
Our food was divine. I had macadamia encrusted mahi mahi and it was delicious.
Truth is, I’d have been just as happy eating from the bar menu!
Either choice: fabulous restaurant!
We had a great dinner. service was outstanding. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Maui.
Arrived early, had booked for 2 incorrectly but staff very accommodating and got us an ocean side table for 4 right away. Beautiful sunset view. Service prompt and friendly. Had shrimp cocktail and snapper special. Seafood sauce is very spicy, don’t need much with the shrimp, which we sweet and fresh and huge. The fish was delicate and delicious, fantastic flavours. I finished off with the Hula Pie which is incredible, with coffee ice cream, macadamias nuts and chocolate sauce, big enough to share between all 4 of us. Highly recommend for special sunset dinner in Maui.
Good food, but not as many selections as I would have expected. Open air configuration and on the beach trail in between some of the resorts makes for a busy location. Expect heavy crowds, especially at sunset. Reservations at popular times are a must.
10th anniversary dinner - fantastic food with a glorious sunset! Noisy place, but food was great!
The menu was limited and we were not impressed with our meal choices. Not worth the cost. We had much better meals for a lot less on Maui.
I highly recommend Hula Grill for
Excellent food and service. I highly recommend it.
Very nice ambiance, open to the ocean and an outrigger canoe hanging on the ceiling. Food was good, if not a little overly complex. Service was good. The Hula pie is always a highlight.
Had a great meal while on our vacation
The Mahi Mahi was terrific, pasta... not so much. The location is beautiful and our server was sweet and helpful.
After 13 years of dining here, we will not be returning. Not only are fish portions smaller & smaller but one was served undercooked. At $35-40 an entree, it's not that special any more.
Our second visit. Was here two years ago. Liked your the chef choice and sunset. Unfortunately this year cloudy.
Restaurant was very busy and loud. Our server was nice but not attentive.
Food was tasty as we remembered
Poor table. Situated at the entrance.
WAITER VERY SUPERIOR WITH HIS ATTTITUDE. FOOD NOT AS GOOD AS OUR PAST EXPERIENCE. WE WILL STICK TO THE BAR AND CHOOSE ANOTHER DINNER ENVIROMENT.
Service & food were excellent. However we were there for an anniversary celebration but were seated in the back of the restaurant behind a wall with no view of the beach and completely missed the sunset which was very disappointing.
Braised Short rib is amazing, and the fire grilled ahi is even better. Delicious!!
Love the hula grill. Ate here 3 times during my Maui vacation. Good value, great food, nice selection & love the location with the Hawaiian look. Very friendly servers !
The food was delicious. The service was outstanding and very friendly. We had a great experience and if/when we return we will definitely go back there to eat.
So close to our hotel and very easy to make a reservation.
The food was so good. My compliments to the chef.
Menu was good. Wish vegetables were included with the meal
Food was excellent but portions are a little small
Beautiful views. Located right at whalers village. Fun atmosphere, good food, great service! Lauren was exceptional! We were a large party, and everyone was well cared for and left satisfied and grateful.
Delicious seafood. Tasty fish special. Wonderful kale salad and pineapple upside down cake dessert.
One meal came substantially earlier than the others, otherwise a very good meal.
We had a coupon for free Hula Pie from Kimos as we were there six of us the night prior. After ordering our delicious but very expensive fish entrees my husband and I asked the waiter if he would except our coupon from Kimos for the free Hula Pie as they have many times in the past. Our waiter said no and but did offer us a desert that I did not want as I actually dislike it. We have always used the coupon from any of the sister restaurants so his attitude made our meal from five stars to three. As they say in business “give the customer the pickle” such a small gesture can make all the difference.
Billy was awesome. Our taster menu did not include ANY vegetables???
Always good. seafood is fabulous!
Fantastic views on Kaanapali Beach!
Love the Hula Grill and make a point to eat here every visit we make to Maui. Lovely old Hawaii plantation decor. Comfortable seating with a wonderful view and nice live entertainment. Food never fails to impress. Server was very good. We asked nicely and were able to order the crab wontons (a must but usually only available in the barefoot bar). Also loved the coconut seafood chowder and the shrimp pasta carbonara. Great drinks. Good enough for my discerning parents to return for lunch the next day. We'll be back!
The restaurant is well-located with an outside shopping nearby. Though not “intimate” (we were not looking for that), the view and lighting and colorful setting made it a “cozy” place to eat. Inviting. My husband, friend, and I had a lovely dinner! Recommendations: coconut seafood chowder, ahi tuna with salmon noodles, snapper with pumpkin risotto, AND this dessert pie - Oreo crust, vanilla ice cream, and lots of chocolate sauce! omg! We would certainly go back!
Hula Grill never disappoints! Our absolute favorite place to eat on Maui (which is why we made reservations for 2 of the 3 nights we were in Kaanapali). Evening specials were amazing, regular menu is delicious, staff is knowledgeable and friendly, and the t-shirts aren't bad either! :)
Very good we enjoyed our dinner
First time to Hula Grill and it was awesome. Asked to wait for table with view and they accommodated us as was our last night on Maui. Had the Mahi Mahi and it was the best meal during our whole 18 day trip! Realized later we forgot to submit coupon for free dessert, wishing the waiter would have ‘asked’ as that would have triggered memory about coupon. Wait staff was average, and quite busy, but did meet our needs.
The food was delicious and our server was a very lovely lady that was wonderful to our one year old son. One of the top meals on Maui for sure
Our service was non existent!! People around had their waiter come to their table a lot quicker than ours did and we sat down before them. Was not even offered water for at least 10 minutes. Food overpriced as well
