Visit the Hula Grill every time we are in Maui. My husband said the ribeye steak was the best he had ever had. Nice service, good wine list.

The Seafood Chowder was amazing and the Grilled Ahi was fantastic. Pan Crusted Mahi is always a hit. Great Mai-Tai's of course and my son says they have the best pineapple juice on the island!

The service was outstanding. Some of our steaks were a little tough and slightly under cooked. Our waiter went above and beyond to make it right and it was greatly appreciated. Overall it was good and would give it another shot.

Had an amazing meal and service again. Still
Socially distanced tables but we had one right next to the pathway and the amazing sunset which was perfect for our family of 5.

Macadamia nut crusted fresh mahi mahi-mahi was delicious.

There were 10 of us there to celebrate my nieces’s 16th birthday and did NOT have good experience at all. 8 out of the 10 of us there ordered burgers, and majority of them went back and twice. The burgers were not cooked and after sending them back you would think the second time they could get it right, but no,all burgers went back a second time. All we ate for dinner were French fries, It was fun to be there but we will not go back again. We did speak with the manager, she apologized and did not charge us for any burgers. She explained that the cook was slammed with orders, but if you are a good cook, you should be able to handle it when its busy. Our server was nice and apologetic, but very slow tending to us too. Not a good experience for us, and here we choose this. what appeared to look like a fun restaurant for my niece’s birthday celebration. They did provide my niece with a nice dessert. No more Hula Grill for us.

The food was horrible. I got a burger and it was very undercooked and my bun was frozen in the middle. Dodd was very plain as well. Not worth the hype.

We ordered the ribeye, chicken, seared ahi plates. All good. Prices are very reasonable and not expensive like Mama’s Fish House which is overpriced for the same quality food and ambiance.

Service was wonderful. We were early for our reservation so the hostess checked us in and brought us to a bench so we could order drinks and when our table was ready, they text us and quickly sat us. Dinner was great. I have a dietary restriction which our server helped me work through to pick out something to eat for dinner and it was great. We will definitely be back!

Had a great table overlooking the ocean. They were going to sit us inside but I asked if we could sit outside. Made reservations 2 months in advance. The food was delicious and fresh. We had the ceviche with taro chips, fish special of sesame crusted ahi and grilled mahi and the macadamia nut crusted mahi and of course the infamous hula pie. Montana was a fantastic server! Was able to see the beautiful sunset. A must!

We enjoyed the live music and sunset. It was very busy and it took us a long time to get our orders. The lava flows were great. Fish Tacos were tasty. My daughter said her Caesar salad may have been the best she has ever had. Nice evening.

Menu way too limited at this time. They’ve combined the super casual barefoot bar with the nicer side Hula Grill into one kitchen with a little from each menu. They took off their best most popular item, Firecracker Fish, from their dinner menu, and only offer one fish entree each night, a d it’s always Macadamia crusted Mahi Mahi. In the old days they offered at least 3 fish entrees every night.

Hula Grill is our long-time favorite on Maui for all-round family fare. Much of its appeal was the very broad menu they offered. They do t gave that going for them now, so it’s average at best. Very disappointing, as we booked it four times for our three week stay, and now we’re stuck with it given the current archaic Covid restrictions.

The food was average. Nothing really stuck out other than the Caesar salad. Our server acted as if he would rather be somewhere else. It was extremely busy so maybe he had to many tables. With all the great places on Maui I’d most likely not return.

The location, music and view were great!

Waiter was slow with everything. After serving our food, he never followed up to see what we needed. We tried to get his attention but he never responded. Other wait staff seemed to ignore us as we were not their table.

Food was excellent. Fish Tacos had a delightful spice and we're accompanied by nacho chips and their new homemade salsa. Yummy. Ahi was excellent as well served with noodles and local vegetables. The dinner finished with a traditional Hula pie. Good thing we walked to and from the restaurant from a resort down the beach.
