On the water's edge on Kaanapali Beach, Hula Grill offers a stunning view of the Pacific and of the islands of Lanai and Molokai. From this distinctly Hawaiian vantage point, you are invited to join us as we celebrate the hospitality, culture and cuisine of the islands. Dinner is served in our open-air dining room where you can relax in the ambiance of a plantation era beach house while enjoying renown chef Peter Merriman's Hawaii Regional Seafood, that isn't only a favorite of vacationers, but locals too. Hawaiian fresh fish and locally grown produce are combined to create amazing menu offerings that are as colorful as they are flavorful. Fiery sunsets are served up daily along with live Hawaiian entertainment.

Our Barefoot Bar offers a more casual menu serving both lunch and dinner under authentic thatch roof umbrellas and a sand floor where you can sink your toes in. The Barefoot Bar is seated on a walk-in basis only.

They did not have the food items we wanted. They told us they ran out. Not a good experience.

Our server was very attentive and friendly.
Potstickers shared for starter were delicious.
Seafood soup was very tasty.
Fish special was under seasoned, but improved with added salt which we had to request, as not on table.
Portions were small and this made the food overpriced.

Wonderful seating outside for sunset, service and food were excellent. Despite making reservations on Open Table, we were given a buzzer and were required to wait close to 30 minutes for our reserved table. We will be back but be more prepared to wait next time.

We arrived late for our reservation and although the restaurant was very crowded, our table had been held for us. Unfortunately it was pouring rain, windy, and chilly for Hawaii. The table we were first shown to was in a drafty space and management graciously found us a much warmer settinh.

This is a fantastic place to eat and the wait staff is exceptional. We go each year for birthdays and anniversaries and never are dissatisfied. The chefs choice menu is a great addition to the regular menu. Getting ready to return tomorrow night.

Ate at Hula Grill 2 times for dinner and 3 times for lunch while in Maui for 1 week. Nice ocean view. For dinner ordered from "Tasting Menu", a great value at $27 which included appetizer or salad, entree, and dessert. Choices from "Tasting Menu" are limited, choice of about 4 appetizer/salad, 4 entrees, and 2 desserts, and only available 4:45 to 5:45. Sun was setting around 6:20 while we were there, so 5:15 reservation was perfect for taking advantage of "Tasting Menu". The "Tasting Menu" portions are smaller, but perfect size. The ice cream dessert on the "Tasting Menu" is so large we couldn't finish it. From "Tasting Menu" we enjoyed crab topped mahi mahi, lobster potstickers, and Ice cream sandwich with raspberry sauce. For lunch we enjoyed pork potstickers and flatbreads. Be sure to make reservation for dinner.

We had outside seating which allowed us to take advantage of a beautiful sunset along with a great dinner. Montana, our server, was very friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and ingredients, and very professional. The food was delicious, served very quickly and perfectly. I brought guests from the mainland and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner!

Hula Grill was packed on this Valentine's evening. This didn't impact the staff or the kitchen as our experience was everything we've come to love about this place. We didn't feel rushed at all, and we enjoyed our appetizer and cocktails before dining. Both of our fresh, locally caught fish entrees were perfectly prepared and a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. Thank you, Hula Grill, for your delicious consistency. We will return.

We were there for Valentines Day. Carol did an outstanding job of taking care of our table. Just perfect. They have a “Chef’s” menu option at certain times. This appears to be a good option. This place is always busy when we are there, so plan ahead.

Food was mediocre... swordfish was too tough and mahi didn’t have enough flavor. Shrimp in carbonara was over cooked. But the atmosphere is great and the service was too. Don’t miss the focaccia- definitely best part

We had a reservation but arrived a little early, hostess said they needed to clean table just a few minutes. We watched many people come in get a buzzer and get sorted before us. I waited over 30 minutes and finally got seated after asking about our reservation. The hostess seemed annoyed that we came up again. Our waitress was very nice and helpful.
