Can’t beat the views! The food is consistent and the service is always good. Menu is probable a little over priced - salt & pepper rib eye is good, but the truffle roasted fingerling potatoes were undercooked and not sure what strange crispy cheese was on top of them...filet special was really good. Always love the seafood coconut chowder - bowl presentation has changed - a bit harder to eat out of the small chowder pot it now comes in - the giant bowl was easier and a prettier presentation, but my guess is the portion size is smaller and it would look way more obvious if it was still on the big open bowl. Nice that they still present the “local” vegetables, but at $8 a side, it gets a bit pricey for a family...would be nice if they periodically had these as an accompaniment to a dish...
Our server Jake gave us outstanding service. He was friendly, personable and very helpful. He made our dining experience that much better.
Hula Grill was fantastic! We saved this for our last night in Maui and glad we did. Jake, our waiter, was phenomenal. Polite and knowledgeable. We had the Hawaiian snapper with risotto, crab topped Mahi Mahi, and the ribeye - all were the best bites we had in Hawaii. Also the desserts & coffee were fantastic. Can’t wait to come back!!
Birthday . It was a nice place on the beach and great seafood.
This was our third time this week at this restaurant because we love it so much. Big mistake, we should have stop at two great experience and gone else where. Service was VERY POOR. Did not get any bread ( they are famous foe their dip with the bread). The service was so poor compare to the other one we had the 2 previous days.
Job promotion, friends on island
Amazing service food is great and a nice setting
It was good.
The food was pricey like every other restaurant in Maui. Food was great and so was the service. Beautiful view while eating outdoors.
Amazing service as usual, we LoVE hula grill.
Went here for our last night in Maui. Made reservations which are for the dining room. The barefoot bar side is filled with sand and has a different menu. Looks fun.
Anyhow, really good service! Like actually good from the moment we walked in.
Party of 4, ordered the crab/lobster/shrimp potstickers... was the only thing not really impressed on. Doughy, filling lacked flavor and only tasted bland seafood. Potstickers should have flavor (maybe ginger/pepper/crunch). Save your money. Was nervous about our meal after this.
Everything else though was really good! I ordered the macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi topped with crab. So. Damn. Good. Great flavor, loved it all... served with rice. Don’t expect a lot of crab as it’s meant to just be a topping.
Daughter ordered the pink snapper. Enjoyed the fish but the risotto it came with was meh. She had a bite of mine and wished she had ordered it instead.
Kids can order off the barefoot bar menu if they want a burger instead of the dining menu. Just ask, but the food timing will be different.
Drinks were strong but good. View was nice. Focaccia bread was yummy.
Don’t miss the Hula Pie, easily shared between 4 people.
We went here for lunch on our vacation. We sat outside, which had good views of the ocean. The service was terrific and the food was good. We would like to go back for dinner sometime.
We went to the Hula Grill our first night of vacation. Everything was great!! We had a lovely view and our waiter was very attentive. The appetizers and desserts were great. So was the rib eye!! Yum
Fantastic roasted chicken (and consistent).
Hula grill was great! Our family loved the food and atmosphere!
The food at Hulu was creative and fun. The ambience was great with a local musician playing on the patio. Although the highlight of our night was our server Kahea. She was the best server I’ve ever had in my life; she was extremely attentive, friendly, knowledgeable, and could speak to everything about each dish, each drink, and the history of the restaurant. If you visit Hulu, please make sure to request Kahea!!!
Vacation in Hawaii plus my granddaughter’s birthday.
Great food, friendly staff, great atmosphere, live music. Highly recommend it.
Beautiful view. Menu has a good variety. Lemon upside down cake was awesome. Great service.
Lovely and delicious!
Food was good and the view of the water was nice. It’s in an outdoor shopping plaza nestled between resorts so there is a lot of foot traffic. The restaurant side (Hula Grill) and the more casual Barefoot Bar have very different menus but the same great view. The restaurant features more seafood and steak dinners while the Bar side serves burgers and sandwiches.
Best about this restaurant is the AMAZING food we were a little disappointed over the pineapple upside down cake (maybe because it was closing time) regardless this place is a must!
Service was awful, kids never got their drinks, water took forever to refill. Our kids’ fish and chips and chicken nuggets were better than our $39 crusted mahi-mahi we ordered. Mahi-mahi was dry and over cooked and rice was raw and crunchy. A very expensive, unsatisfactory meal.
I was so disappointed for two reasons. First, I made a special request twice through comments on Open Table as well as speaking to a server at the restaurant about wanting beachfront seating. I know it can't be guaranteed but we were seated in the back of the restaurant furthest from my request. They never acknowledged my request either. In addition, I noted that it was a special birthday and that was never acknowledged as well. I was upset the whole night when it was suppose to be a wonderful occasion.
Good dinner, just don’t get the idea serving 2 different menus inside and outside?
Always the most consistent food quality on Kaanapali.
First time here and it did not disappoint. Good food, and staff is amazing. You won’t regret an evening out here
We love Hula Grill and go about once a year. This was for my wife’s birthday and they treated us wonderfully.
Food was good and fresh. Nice for a special night, but probably wouldn’t return.
Great drinks. Mahi Mahi was great, but the seared Ahi tuna was average. We had much better Ahi at Dukes the night before.
I was disappointed with the ambiance when youre walking towards the restaurant. There's a dirty pond that has trash floating in it. The food is great. The water was good. Just disappointed this place didn't match up to the one on Waikiki
It was our last night in Maui and we wanted to sit outside in the main dining restaurant . They accommodated us by giving us the BEST seat outside near the beach. It was the most beautiful evening and I have never tasted Filet Mignon like that!!!! My husband loved the fish selection and our waitress was professional yet made us feel right at home.
I cannot say enough about the Hula Grill! We ate in their “sand bar” area a few nights before and enjoyed the appetizers and drinks while listening to their fabulous guitar artist/ singer. It made our vacation perfect... thank you Hula Grill!!!
Wonderful birthday evening. Waitress Eve provided top notch service.
Once again great dining experience- perfect Hawaiian meal- outstanding fish selections
Great view and good food....
Eve was fabulous. She paid close attention, made great recommendations and was consistent for the entire night.
Had a spectacular view of the sunset! The food was amazing, a little on the higher price level.
This was our best meal the whole week we were in Maui. The chef accommodated our many food restrictions with excellence. Everyone was very happy. We ate beef filet, ahi and snapper fish and steamed beans. Very fresh and tasty. Highly recommend for dinner.
We enjoyed lunch while shopping in the Whaler’s Village in Kaanapali. It was a gorgeous day and the restaurant is gorgeous as well. My fish tacos were outstanding and my friend really enjoyed her locally sourced goat cheese flatbread. We shared an amazing pineapple upside-down cake for dessert. We will definitely be going back!
