    Keefe was our waiter. We were not impressed by his service. We asked for straws. Waited 10 min for water another 10 for straws he never brought them so my husband got up & got some from bar. He never brought them or questioned about them. So weird. Food was ok like kimos all the same stuff.

    Great location on the beach. Quality food. Very consistently good across all of our meals (party of 6). Great drinks, but overpriced as most tourist places are. Service was slow but not annoyingly so..and good by comparison to most places these days. If you’re at a resort, on a beach, and want chill vacation vibes, then this definitely fits the bill. I would definitely go back with friends or family. Everyone left happier than when we arrived.

    Brunch on the beach was delightful. Our waiter was personable and knowledgeable of the menu. One item on my meal was wrong and it was quickly replaced. We loved having our feet in the sand, mimosas, music, hula dancers and dessert with breakfast. Hula Grill had been recommended to us by several people and it was a great start to the day.

    We had early dinner on a Saturday night. The girls at the reception desk hardly acknowledged the people they were seating. Not a smile on sight. Thank goodness our waiter was a lot more friendly! They have a tasting menu for $29 for people who are seated between 4 and 4:45, which includes 2 small courses from a list of appetizers and entrees. Looked like a great deal for people with smaller appetites but we were really hungry so we skipped this. Ceviche was good as was the ribeye. Seafood chowder and fish selections were ok, needed a little more seasoning. But all in all a good meal.

    Been going here every summer for years. This was a very disappointing visit. We came 3 times this trip and each one was less enjoyable than the last. The wait staff were NOT attentive. Couldn’t seem to get our orders right, couldn’t refill drinks, didn’t even stop by our table to see if things were going right. Additionally, we had reservations every evening and on two visits we got stuck in the sand pit of the barefoot bar. Not a pleasant experience to have sand in your nice shoes when you were not expecting to be seated there.

    The food was excellent and service was very good. But they had a gal singing who wasn't so great and we were waiting for the Luau show. The waitress told us it was gonna come on in a few minutes to get us to stay longer and order dessert to up our bill. Then after we had dessert she came back and told us oh they weren't gonna have a hula show until the following day at 4 o'clock. That really p***** me off. It was obvious she had worked there long enough to know the show schedule and she was just playing us so she could get more money. Not cool! Beware of these games.

    We were looking forward to dining at Hula Grill. We wanted to love it. Our experience began with 3 hostesses that were very unwelcoming to say the least . We had a reservation and were seated at a table with a beautiful view. Our server was Roy. Roy was also very unwelcoming and provided little to no service. We ordered the Seafood Potstickers to start. They were delicious. We ordered Surf and Turf for two as our entree. The steak was good but not great. The lobster was mushy, drenched in a cream, and lacked flavor. Upon leaving we told the 3 hostesses goodbye and wished them well. One rolled her eyes. No one replied. We will not be returning .

    I made our dinner reservation 3 months ago for my husband’s 75th birthday. We were dressed up. They seated us at a table on the sand with a thick pole right in front of us. I said no way. We wanted up front in the dining room. They said it was an hour wait. I said I have a dinner reservation. No can do. We were treated like dirt. We ended up inside dining room with no view. Food was so so. We have been coming to Hula Grill for many many years. The place is off our list. Service - so so. Lost its special vibe.

    We made a reservation weeks in advance and requested a table on the sand. That didn’t happen. They sat us in front row so we could see ocean, but it was covered by sunshade. I don’t think our waiter knew how to smile. He wasn’t very friendly. We come here every year and have had always had a great time here. not sure if we will be back to Hulu Grill.

    Great food for all appetites. Excellent service. The dipping sauce for the bread -and the bread, too- is unique and amazing. Atmosphere is gorgeous with outdoor seating overlooking the sand and ocean. Restaurant isn’t loud at all. Seats are comfortable. Prices are pretty comparable for anywhere in Maui. Would definitely recommend as a must eat restaurant on Kaanapali.

    Our server was excellent but the hostess staff was terrible and very rude. Surprising since we are paying top $$ to be at a resort. We dined at Hula Grill on 6/19 at 4:00. There were 3 hostesses and the tallest one in a green long dress was extremely rude to all customers, not just our family. Please address this issue. Very disappointing.
